{Everlee’s Nursery}

For months I’ve been looking forward to sharing this sweet room tour with you … filled with so many handmade/DIY touches that relect the love and excitement we all had for this baby girl long before she made her arrival 2 weeks ago.

Everlee’s {my great niece} Nursery::

The nursery isn’t huge, but my niece maximized the space by not filling it with too much furniture. They stuck with the existing paint color which gave a warm neutral to add in all the pops of color.

My niece used this as her inspiration board::

I found this fabric bundle from Fabricworm.com soon after::

The quilt {blogged here}, the crib skirt, {2} crib sheets, hoop art, mobile & lamp rosettes were all made from this bundle plus Kona cotton solids {white, sunflower, pond & coral}.

The desk {which became the changing table} and side table were found at my niece’s mom’s consignment shop. She spray painted them a lovely deep aqua and then added white paint to bring out the drawer accents. The color is very bold, but put in a room filled with such neutral walls, carpet and a white crib they add the perfect pop and make it a very fun room.

The hoops were put together by my nice, my sister-in-law {Everlee’s Grandma} and myself one Saturday afternoon.

The mobile was made by Grandma {and Grandpa} using this tutorial from Spool Sewing.

My niece spray painted an old mirror she got from her mom’s shop and added fabric rosettes to the lampshade.

Didn’t it turn out so sweet? A little bit vintage with a clean modern flair. I’m so happy I’ve been able to live vicariously through this experience. What a joy to prepare for and welcome your first child. Thanks Jessica & Everlee, Auntie A loves you both SO much!
