All Together Now!

You've seen bits and pieces of Baby Girls room, so who would like to see the whole thing?

That's what I thought.

Here we go!

I love walking down the hallway and seeing this view.  All the different pinks against the beautiful grey.  I want to spend all my time in there!  The frame above the rocking chair will eventually have Psalm 92:4 ("I sing for joy at the works of your hands") in it.  There is another frame on the closet wall that will eventually have one of her newborn pictures in it.

The glider is the same one that was in here for Harrison, except I recovered it in pink minky, instead of the brown minky I had for Harrison.  I'm so glad that I 'recovered' the glider with safety pins the first time!  I knew I would eventually be changing the fabric.

Before Harrison was born, I made him a quilt which hung over the back of the crib (until he started pulling it off) and used in his monthly pictures.  I knew this time I wouldn't really have the energy or the time (mostly energy) to make Baby Girl a quilt, so I decided to crochet her a blanket.  I've expanded my crocheting abilities as it is easier to crochet, than to quilt (don't need to lug my sewing machine, cutting matt and fabric upstairs every time I want to create something).  Crocheting fit the bill for ease of nap time craftiness.

That's it hanging over the back of the glider.

And here is a view of the other side of the room:

Not much new and exciting over here,  I've already shown you the mobile and the hair bow holder.  The shelves are the same ones that were in here for Harrison, just with some pink on them this time.  I'm sure the shelves will eventually look a little nicer, but for now - this is it!

I got the pink metal pails from Target a while ago not knowing what I was going to do with them.  They now hold headband overflow, soothers and newborn hats.

The rug (that you can kind of see in both pictures) is from Costco in the States.  For some reason, they don't have the solid grey color in Canada.

Oh, and the drapes!  I made them.  Only because I couldn't find any blackout drapes in the color that I wanted.  They probably ended up costing me more than if I had just bought a set of blackout drapes, but this way I got exactly what I wanted.  That makes it worth it to me!

And a peek inside the closet:

Unfortunately (very unfortunately) I couldn't convince Bobby to repaint the closet.  Apparently it would have been too much hassle to completely disassemble the Expedit, repaint, and then reassemble the Expedit back inside the closet.  I guess I should have thought of that the first time and just had him paint it white.  Oh well, it's hard to see the blue through all the adorable dresses!

I also recovered the clothing dividers that I made for Harrison - because the closet needed some pink!  I absolutely LOVE opening the closet and seeing all the girly things that I get to dress her up in.

I'm loving the way my vision for a pink and grey nursery turned out.  Even better than I pictured it in my head.

Now all it's missing is our baby girl!


  1. The room looks so cute! I absolutely loved the dividers in the closet; such a good way of keeping things in order.

  2. I loveeeeee it! Ah! So sweet, love the age dividers in the closet and the tulle on the lamp! Very creative!
