Collins' Nursery

The last time I posted about the nursery, we had painted the room and prepared it for our Master's Week renters.  It has definitely changed since then into a special room for our beautiful baby girl.

The bedding is from Carousel Designs, a USA based company with gorgeous baby bedding and fabrics.  My mom made the curtains, fabric also from Carousel Designs, to match the bedding.  And Cary constructed the cornice board, which I upholstered.

This was cross stitched by Granny, Collins' great grandmother on the Malcom side of the family. It hangs above her crib. The other frames will hold photos of Collins.

Cary's parents gifted us with the crib mattress, and my Mom made the pillows which were monogrammed by a friend of hers.  The classic Jenny Lind crib was destined for the trash because it was a drop side style which is now considered dangerous for babies. (Goodwill won't even take them.)  But with some adjustments (ie 5-inch bolts) Cary turned it into a standard and safe crib.

This shelf is full of keepsakes from my childhood as well as gifts from family and friends.  The white dress was her going-home outfit.

The little stuffed lamb on the table is from her Great Aunt Doris.  The recliner is a hand-me-down LazyBoy from my parents, which I had re-upholstered in JoAnn's fabric. 

The dresser/changing table is from Savvy Shopper, a local furniture store that specializes in painted/re-claimed/antique pieces. The cross is from Hobby Lobby, which I spray painted dark grey.  The polka dot piggy bank is from TJMaxx. The "Collins" bunting was made by a friend. The monogram is from an etsy store called League of Letters. The small rug has been replaced with a pink shag rug that covers much of the room.

The book shelves are spice racks from IKEA. There are four of them hanging on the wall beside her closet.  I painted them pink, and my parents helped hang them.  They hold new books which were gifts from friends and relatives as well as books from my and Cary's childhood.

 All photos were taken by a dear friend and photographer, Natalie Defnall.  Here is her website.
