It's a bit hard to show true before and afters, because the room is so different, and angles that existed in the room before don't exist anymore. For an idea of what the room looked like when we moved in, here is what we began with:
The room is shorter now, and the closets are gone, space which we used to make our mudroom/laundry room. My husband also added in a little hallway on the left side, and added a door to the hallway.
This was standing from near the entryway - it was a really large room. When the house was built, it was originally two bedrooms, which is why it has two ceiling fans, two windows, etc.
From the far end of the room (near the closets) the room before looked like this:
And now, it's our wallpaper wall!
So with that all out of the way, here's a full tour of our nursery!
This is the view from the doorway, when you first enter the room:
My husband made the honeycomb lights, which is actually one of my favorite parts of the entire room. He just sort of brainstormed them one night, and a few days later, we had this beautifully constructed honeycomb light in the room. He took some pictures while he worked and put together a little tutorial, which I'll post soon hopefully!
To the left when you enter is our clothing hanger. We made this using an old branch we found after a windstorm. We have all of our outfits hanging from 0-6 months, which is more than enough.
In our little nook is my change station. This beautiful mid-century modern dresser was given to me by my mother in law. It's just so perfect!
The horizontal paneling is an idea we found on Vintage Revivals. It only cost us about 20 dollars for the materials to do it!
Then we have our toy shelf, then back to the crib!
One of the things I'm most proud of in the room, and which took me longer than anything else, was the quilt I made for our girl. It's the first quilt I've ever made, and while it's not perfect (not even close!) I am so so happy that I got it finished before she comes.
On the topic of quilts, my best friend made me an incredible quilt which she gave to me at my baby shower. I just love it so much!
- Installing lights on the wallpaper wall
- Putting up artwork (we have about 7 frames with photos, waiting to go up!)
- Some kind of window treatment
