A Nursery for Baby C

Well here we are, officially two weeks until baby girl two is due! Nesting has kicked in full force. As a matter of fact, the very day our last holiday guests left, we had the queen bed out of the guest room and the new crib up within a few hours. As a reminder, here’s how the room looked most recently.

Guest Room After

Here’s the same view today!

Crib and Rocker Wall

We went with a decidedly floral theme in this room with lots of pink and dark green. The view of the opposite wall is my favorite!

Changing Table + Shelves

We’d used that 3-drawer dresser in our closet and guest room at our previous house and in our master bedroom in this house before discovering it was the perfect size for a changing pad. I love that it is petite and keeps this small room from feeling too cramped. I scored the pink flower lamp for free from a local garage sale site. It will be perfect for middle-of-the-night diaper changes.

Changing Station

Based on the monogram above the dresser, you can guess we’ve chosen a name. We’re waiting to share the name publicly until after Baby C arrives, but I think this floral letter (a DIY from cardboard, hot glue, and $30 worth of faux flowers) might be one of my favorite projects ever!

Floral Monogram

The prints on the opposite wall are from Rifle Paper Co. and blanket (in perfectly coordinating colors) was a handmade gift from my mom. The crib was an awesome craigslist find and came with a like-new mattress. Funny how I never would have considered a used crib when I was pregnant with our first baby, but this room is furnished with completely second-hand items!

Crib and Blanket

The floating shelves (from CB2) made the move with us from our Arkansas guest bedroom. I love them so much more in this nursery, and they are practical as well as pretty. Since the dresser only had room on top for the changing pad, we decided to install the shelves within reach to house wipes, diaper creams, and little accessories (like socks and bows), along with decor.

Floating Shelves

The owl on the top shelf was a handmade gift – isn’t it so adorable? The print is by Jones Design Co, and the pink frame was a shower gift we received for our first little lady. I just swapped out the photo for our 16 week ultrasound of Baby C.

Upper Shelf Closeup

I especially like this little setup on the middle shelf. The photo was from our family photo/maternity session this fall, and the watercolor is actually an original by big sister for her little sis! Isn’t that sweet?

So that’s the quick tour of the second nursery at our house. We are all eagerly awaiting Baby C’s arrival and hope she loves the room as much as we do!
