I did this room as a surprise for my wife for our gender surprise baby (it was a girl!). I actually put a key locked knob on the door so she wouldn't peek. I wanted to do something as a gift for her and the baby since she was already doing so much by carrying it. I was nervous about what she'd think but she ended up loving it. Whew!

Baby #4 in a house with only four small bedrooms meant some construction. We turned our unused formal living room into her own special space!

***Note: Based on feedback I have received on here I suppose it is worth mentioning that I obtained my BA in Interior Design and I did have a former and brief career in that industry but it's been over 10 years since then. I thought I should put this note in here to take the pressure off some of the husbands out there :) and Thanks again for the comments! *** Contemporary/Modern nursery for our first child, Carter. I didn't let my wife see the room for over a month! She seems to like it....hope everyone else does. :)

We adopted our daughter so while we were waiting we had fun putting together her nursery! The wall paint is Valspar's Pianissimo from Lowe's. The fabrics came from Cutting Corners (www.fabricresource.com). Paisley fabric is called Desmond Dusk. My sweet mom made all the bedding. The "puff" flowers are from a Martha Stewart kit purchased at Michael's. I did end up making the pale pink ones on my own since the flower kit didn't have the exact shade I was looking for. Crib was a hand-me-down from my aunt. Rocker is a Pier 1 "sample" that was never reproduced (got it for a steal at a Pier 1 outlet). Bins were purchased at Lowe's. Rug is two small rugs duck-taped together purchased at Garden Ridge. Dresser and changing table are second-hand. Many blessings!

After countless hours of debating on the perfect colors, furniture, and accessories - I was finally able to put together a mix of new and used, light, bright and colorful, and vintage-modern and antique elements that felt right for our baby girl due October 1st. I have to admit that I started out wanting expensive, brand new furniture, but couldn't be happier with my budget-conscious buys from TJ-Maxx and Marshalls, Craigslist and Goodwill, local antique mall and Etsy. I started with the refinished dresser set, Jenny Lind Crib, and my one splurge (Serena and Lily bedding) and everything sprouted from there. The only thing missing now is my baby girl. We have a long 6 weeks to go, but I think we're ready!
