Molly’s Nursery

A little background, we didn’t know the gender going into delivery. Molly was a big surprise (found out we were pregnant when Christopher was four months old), and I figured it’d just be fun to not know the gender. And it didn’t take too much convincing with Chris. 🙂 So I had fun designing and decorating this nursery. We got the furniture from old neighbors who were going to be bunking their boys. I picked a nice gray paint, and figured teal would be the main color but I’d throw in yellows and other colors as I went. Here’s what I ended up with!

And now for where everything came from… white shelves are from Target, owl is from TJ Maxx (was originally black, I spray painted white). Dog Hooks are from Ikea, sock monkey is from Cracker Barrel (ha!), bird mobile I made using this pattern, whale canvas prints I made looking at this from another artist on etsy (I can’t find her original listing now), I made the “Man’s Best Friend” print in Photoshop and had it printed on canvas, the owl print I bought here on etsy, the bird tin artwork is from Michaels, Bike canvas print is from TJ Maxx, “Don’t Forget to Be Awesome” was purchased from this shop on etsy, and the ballerina clock I bought here.

I also bought a glider in white wood and then made a slipcover for it in the same fabric as the lampshade on the changing table… but then I moved it into Christopher’s room and got the nice one out of his room. It’s waaaay more comfortable (expensive gliders are SO worth the money!).

I had a blast decorating Molly’s room. Oh and her bedding is Pottery Barn’s Harper bedding in aqua. And yes, I have plans to add the “O” to her name. I need more materials, they were purchased this week. But I’m busy working on Nana’s furniture right now.
