Owen's Nursery Part II

It's done! Hooray! You saw the first part of the nursery in this post, and here is the rest:)...

I have adored this PB rocking chair forever, so on the first Mother's Day that we were married (no kids mind you), Trevor found a great deal at Down East and surprised me. That was 8 years and 3 kids later and that thing is still one of my favorites. I really wanted to get a new slipcover for it, but it wasn't in my budget, so I just made sure whatever direction I went with this room, the chair would work. My existing floor lamp got a coat of white spray paint, and I added grosgrain trim to the lamp shade.

Love my floral pillow, I trimmed it with thick rick rack.

There wasn't enough room in the nursery for the armoire I usually use for clothes, burp cloths etc. so I bought some baskets for 40% off at Michael's and they work great in the changing table. I love the little bit of "natural" that they provide.

I'm not sure why, but I really wanted a tree in this space, there is something very calming about it, and I love the way it stands out against the pale blue wall.

I think this little shelf ($7.50 at Home Depot) is pretty sweet. My mom brought my boys back some seashells from vacation a couple of years ago and I just hot glued them in a shadow box and added a tag that says "Gram's Shells". My mom is a big part of my kids' life and I love having something meaningful from her in the space. That cute little elephant was $2.99 at Ross. Gotta love it:)

My mom and I (mostly my mom) sewed the drapes by piecing the two fabrics together and hemming all the way around. They are hung from clips, and that vertical stripe makes my 8 foot ceilings appear so much taller.

Here are a few pictures of O's crib and collage wall, to see the details click here:
Thanks for reading. Have a great weekend:)
