The Nursery

FINALLY...With all the CRAZINESS that came with the birth of my 2nd Son little "B",
I haven't really had the time nor the brain power to think about this Room.
But... We are now home safe and sound after spending 2 months in the NICU.( Not fun!) 
Here are a few pictures of ALMOST complete Nursery. 
All I have left to do is a vinyl saying above the pictures, a box seat cushion and it's done
.... Until the next baby that is (wink)
I Bought my Rocker on Clearance at JcPenny. That Stores Really does Surprise me at times. I sewed the toile pillow to match the bed Skirt. I used a box pleat ruffle..Tutorial to come :) 
I had these Frames Custom Made and Painted.
Tip..Talk with your local Cabinet guy about custom Frames. You might be surprised how affordable they can be compared to store bought frames. Custom wood Frames  adds that element of upscale Design!

The BED SKIRT!! I must admit it took longer than I thought it would.
I guess it's my own fault for wanting the skirt so darn ruffled.
I really need to get over my obsession with Fabric..Hmm?? Thought about that for a second, and I have changed my mind. BRING ON THE FABRIC :)


  1. I love the colors you used here. Could you tell me what green and blue you used? Also, I can't find a good fabric designer, would you be willing to tell me who's fabric you used in our nursery? Thanks! Thanks!

    If so, my email is


  2. Heidi, I know this post has been here awhile but I just have to tell you how much I love your take on a nursery. I always think a nursery should be a calm, serene place for baby to rest. But so much of what is out there for nurseries is anything but serene. I love this room! Thank you for inspiring me!

  3. Love this! It's beautiful and simple and I love how it doesn't scream "baby" by the colors and fabric choices. Perfect.

  4. New to your blog and love it! Found it so ironic that I have a Blake who also spent 2 months in the NICU! Thanks for all the great ideas!

  5. Beautiful room for Blake.
    We also have the same crib! Love PBK

    I am also new to your blog so I had no idea your son was in the NICU. I am glad he is home and healthy.

  6. I am just pouring over your site - it is amazing! I too had babies in the NICU -first son in the NICU for 3 months and 2nd son in the NICU for 2 weeks. I can relate entirely. I finished baby #2 's nursery earlier this summer - please stop by and take a look :) would love to have you as a bloggy friend.

  7. I LOVE LOVE LOVE your blog! You have given me so many ideas! Your home looks straight out of a Southern Living magazine! We just found out we are expecting baby #3. We have 2 precious boys and are hoping that #3 is a bundle of pink! Youand I are having the same cravings so I am hoping that means that I am expecting a girl! Thanks for sharing your beautiful ideas!

  8. hello! love your ideas. can you also share the nursery blue color with me, please? thanks!

  9. hello! love your ideas. can you also share the nursery blue color with me, please?


  10. I too LOVE this nursery and would love to make similar bedding. I found some fabric that is the same as the bedskirt but the colors are reversed. Can you share with me where you got your fabrics? And also the color choices for the room. Thanks so much !!
