The time has finally come to show you the nursery. I feel like it has been a long time in the making. Just over a week ago we welcomed a baby girl to our family. It has been a whirlwind of a week and a roller coaster of emotions. Mr. Whitelane and I couldn’t be happier to have this bundle of joy here with her other siblings. It is so fun watching her become part of our little family.

I have partnered with a few other blogger mommies to show you an amazing group of nursery reveals. There are some girl reveals and a boy reveal that you won’t want to miss. Be sure to follow the links at the bottom of this post to check out all the cuteness!

Pink has always been a favorite of mine. Even though my other little girl’s room has a lot of pink, I couldn’t resist having pink in the nursery as well. My older girl’s room is shabby chic and a lot more vintage feel. In order to give the nursery its own style, I went a little more modern. Although they both have pink, the styles are completely different.

I centered the room around the crib. When I found this crib, I knew it was the one. I love the simple clean lines with the side details. It is a 3-in-1 convertible crib that will last a while. The crib comes in multiple colors and the price was amazing too! After I found the crib, I knew the wall behind it needed some sort of trim. I decided to stick with a simple clean look by doing vertical boards. You can read more about the wall here. I found the cute basket and blanket at T.J. Maxx. The crib bedding was an easy decision. My mother-in-law usually makes my kid’s crib bedding. It is phenomenal when she is done! However, I came across Carousel Designs when they were having a sale. The prices were too good to be true. You can design your own custom bedding and see it in a virtual nursery. It is really fun and they send you free fabric swatches. I found the perfect shade of pink in a simple design that I really liked. I decided to buy the crib bedding this time around and I was pleasantly surprised.

The dresser is also simple. I needed it to fit in the room on this small wall. I ended up changing out the white knobs for some brass ones. It made the mirror above the dresser and other brass accents pop.  I was able to use a few things from my other little girl’s nursery. The changing pad and cover were hand-me-downs. Luckily they were a neutral color that fit in perfectly.

I was little concerned about getting the rocking chair out of my toddler girl’s room. We eased her into the idea of sharing the chair with the new baby. She eventually was ready to get it out of her room and let the baby have the chair. Again, I love getting major pieces in neutral colors. You can always reuse them in other areas. Let the small decor be your color that can be easily swapped. Stick to neutrality for big furniture pieces. I found the brass and marble side table on clearance at Target. It was a steal of a deal and fit perfectly in the room. SCORE! It looks all clean and cute in the picture. Trust me, it is currently cluttered with baby bottles and all kinds of baby necessities. I love this brass lamp I also fount at Target. All you have to do is touch it to turn it off or on. It is so convenient when you are holding a baby. I don’t have to try to find a button or switch to turn, just touch any part of the base of the lamp.

The pink rug was a Wal-Mart find. When it arrived I was so happy it was the right color pink to match everything else. The white fur rug came from Ross. I love the look of layered rugs. This soft fluffy one is like walking on marshmallows. Perfect for the nursery. I am sure you remember my DIY abstract art  from a previous post. I wasn’t in love with it when I first got it hung above the crib. It is growing on me. I think I will keep it in here.

Nap time is just about over and the baby needs some more cuddles. Hope you have enjoyed this girly nursery reveal. Be sure to hop on over and see all the other nurseries at the links below. So much baby nursery goodness for you to be inspired.

Hallway Trim Decisions

I have a big nice hallway at the top of stairs. Every time you walk up the stairs you see this nice long hallway or wall. It is just over 12 feet long and is begging for some sort of wall treatment. I mean, look at this big blank canvas. The possibilities are endless! I have narrowed down the options to just a few.

I love shiplap and I think it could look really cool here. Just picture some clean and crisp white shiplap with large black frames spaced across the wall. I found the image below, here. I think some black and white family photos inside a few large black frames will really pop against the shiplap. If we did shiplap, it would be the same as our entry shiplap. The planks are similar to tongue and groove and are about 7.5″ wide.

Then there is board and batten. Not just any board and batten, but square board and batten. I thought about evenly spaced squares across the wall like the first image below. I really want to hang large black frames across that wall as well. I am not sure if all the evenly spaced squares would look as good with frames over them. Then I came across the second image below. The longer spaced squares would fit a frame perfectly between each section. It is still a unique twist on your typical board and batten. Also, either of these board and batten options would be a lot easier to install than the shiplap.

The final option I am weighing is picture frame molding. I found the first image below here. I think large black frames would look great within the larger molding. This would still be relatively easier than shiplap. Truth be told, I have never installed picture frame molding. It could be a fun learning experience. I came across this idea in the second image below as well. I could add a fun wallpaper inside the picture frame molding. I am just worried I would get tired of the wallpaper over time. Picture frames make it easier to swap out pictures when an update is needed.

What do you think? I want to knock this project out before the baby comes (along with a few others). I need to make a decision quick. This will be a weekend warrior project (or a few weekends) with Mr. Whitelane. I am leaning towards the larger board and batten squares for ease of installation and time. However, Mr. Whitelane thinks we should do the shiplap like our entry. Decisions, decisions.
