[Little Room] New House Nursery Reveal


Well, we moved in almost 4 months ago and while I keep waiting to find the right pieces to "finish" Ashlynn's room I realize it's an impossible task.  Her room is constantly changing with toys being swapped or retired and we spend the majority of time in the playroom so I haven't been bothered enough to really finish off those places that 'just need something else'.

I finally snapped some pictures, while corralling her in the crib - so make sure to enjoy those shots, before she could ruin my clean up job.  I have to say, while I loved her original nursery, I love this room even more and am so glad I got a second chance to restyle her items.
















She doesn't sleep with the pillow in her crib, but she does use her soother to keep her occupied all.the.time.  Also, teething guards... so necessary.  She chewed the one short side of her crib in probably 10 minutes after a nap one day.  I was absolutely horrified as paint was missing and you can see the wood beneath.  I contacted the company and some friends who been there, done that and turns out the saliva softens the paint which makes little sharp baby teeth able to chip away, the thankfully non-toxic, paint.  I had my friend whip these up for us, since this all went down around the time of her first birthday and sewing something without a pattern just wasn't making into my schedule.

Here's the source list for the rest of items!

  1. dude. the corner shelf for the monitor - SO GENIUS. I love everything about her room, naturally. also, she is looking more and more like you by the day! so funny that she was P's mini me when she was teeny tiny.

    1. Yeah, that was basically because I had no where to put it and hanging it on a nail over the crib like before wasnt going to work with a baby that stands and reaches. I wanted to paint the shelf the color of the room so it would just blend in, but never got around to it.

      I also never put the little screw pegs in because I was afraid they'd fall out and she'd eat them. I'm pretty sure my dog ate the ones that fell out of our stools at our old house :)

  3. I feel like the nursery changes every week in our house, so hard to 'finish'. I'm inspired now to make it at least as half as adorable as yours! Love the little radio flyer wagon! Awesome job Mama!

    1. Not only is it changing, it's always a mess! I swear I put the books back on the shelf/table/ledges 3x a day and we probably only spend an hour or so tops in her room for playing! She also loves digging out her clothes from the hamper every time i open the closet... at least I taught her to put things back in the basket LOL

  11. Love how you placed the corner shelf too. I moved the camera to an opposite corner when my son started reaching for it next to his bed. Now I can only see him during nap times, because it is too dark at night. Very frustrating. How do you have the cord secured so she does not pull on it?

    1. I have the crib pulled away from the wall and right now, it's just high enough and set back far enough to be out of her reach... it's still pretty funny though when she gets up in the corner and all you see if nightvision face! The monitor came with these great childproof cord holders that stick to the wall/baseboard like a command strip. I'll take some pics and share how we childproofed it, especially since the outlet is behind the crib!

  12. Ooohh, love the new room! Touches of the last nursery, but now a little toddler room. Perfect! You can tell it is such a happy place filled with fun. Did you ditch the changing table? I think I am ready to use that space for toy storage in O's room.

    1. Thanks! Those curtains were my splurge, but they really add some fun and function since they are blackout. One of my favorite items too!

  15. Love this! Is the crib bedding grey or khaki?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Thank you! It's actually somewhere between both, but I'd say closer to brown based grey than a tan khaki. It's the Land Of Nod Khaki in the Mix bedding, but it's definitely not traditional khaki, I'd call it more of a clay color. Hope that's helpful!

  16. Hi E! Beautiful work on the room! Do you mind sharing where you purchased her personalized blanket that is on the glider/chair? Many thanks!-Judy

    1. Thank you! I actually don't :( It was a gift from a friend. I tried looking the name on the tag up online and on etsy, but nothing ever came up. Either the store closed or she got it done local. Sorry!
