A Blush & Dark Green Nursery

Hello all! Whew has it been a minute since I've posted anything here...
Today I'm popping in to share some pictures of our second baby girl's nursery - she'll be here in less than two weeks! I'm so pleased with how this room turned out and it brings me so much joy and happiness - despite all the heaviness going on in the world right now with Covid-19. Scroll on down below for a lot of pics and room details along the way! :)

I made the little wicker, succulent/floral wall hangings with supplies from Hobby Lobby and a friend made the door hanging for me for my baby shower!
The dresser is painted with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in "Amsterdam Green" and sealed with Satin finish poly-acrylic and the hardware is from Lowe's. My Dad did the honors of painting the dresser for me - it was my childhood dresser and was pretty scratched up. I decided on the green color before we knew what the gender of the baby was and I knew that gold hardware would look fantastic on it. We don't have a dedicated closet for the baby (the closet in this room is full of TC's photo equipment, fabric, and Legos (haha) so I added a hanging rod to the bottom shelf in order to hold a few of baby girl's nicer garments. The gold, floral wall hooks are from Target and I made the two hair bow holders out of some thrifted photo frames, lace ribbon, and gold cup hooks screwed in the bottom to hang headbands from. I still need to get two more cup hooks because I ran out and there aren't equal numbers on the frames and it drives me a little crazy!
 The gold framed mirror was given to us by TC's grandmother who was no longer using it in her home - it looks so lovely over the crib and I enjoy the way the artwork reflects in it from across the room. I crafted the mobile myself from felt flowers and an embroidery hoop inspired from ones I saw on Etsy that were selling for FAR more than I was willing to pay. I love how it turned out and by making it myself I was able to perfectly customize it to my desired color scheme. I ordered the felt from this Etsy shop.
 The artwork is from this Etsy shop. Originally the mats around the prints were white but I decided they were boring and needed jazzing up so I watercolor painted them blush pink and oh-my-goodness, what a difference that made! The gold frames the artwork is framed in were just basic frames from Hobby Lobby I got on super sale and came without backing (I used old amazon boxes and made my own backs). I made the little wall-weavings myself on Jensen's plastic craft-kit loom with cream colored yarn and wool roving that I ordered from this Etsy shop. I just kind of blundered my way through since I've never done anything like that before- but they turned out pretty cute!
 The grey rocking/glider chair is from Dillard's and is Palliser brand 'Theo' style.The gold rack the blankets are hanging on was a lucky thrift store find - the bottom shelf holds a basket with burp cloths for convenient access. Lamp base and shade are from At Home. The curtains are from Target and weren't quite the shade of pink I was looking for - but I couldn't find any others for the price I was willing to pay and I didn't have the energy to sew curtains myself this time around. The gold, wall-book ledges were from Amazon. My friend made these cute mason jars with baby girl's name and they fit perfectly on the wide window-sill
My sister-in-law crocheted this baby blanket and let me tell you, it is the softest thing ever!! The velvet-look pillows are from Ikea and NO they won't stay in the crib once the baby is sleeping in there. They'll get thrown on the floor and occasionally used as back support against the wall when we're sitting on the floor playing with the baby. :) The quilt was made by my mom and she did an excellent job of making my vision for it come to life! The matching large-scale and micro-scale multi-colored floral print fabric was ordered from Spoonflower from this artist's shop and my mom and I shopped for the coordinating fabric at Joann's. The triangle quilt pattern is from this Etsy shop. We're re-using Jensen's old crib from Ikea which is still in great condition.
 The nursery is still shared-space with my sewing stuff but I worked hard to get it all consolidated in one little corner! These unfinished wood shelves that I hung ages ago in this room used to hold a bunch of TC's lego builds but they look MUCH cuter now, haha.
Hope you enjoyed the little nursery tour - let me know if you have other questions or want to know sources for things I didn't mention!
