Adelyn's Pink and Gray Cottage Chic Nursery

12.31.2013

When I first started planning Adelyn's nursery, I really didn't know what direction I would take. I found some fabric early on that I thought would be the starting point for the room. Then I came across the beautiful dresser and my whole vision changed. I immediately knew I wanted a romantic, girly nursery with more of a cottage feel. The fabric I had previously chosen just wouldn't work for that so I was back to the drawing board. I started pinning inspiration nurseries and I noticed that I was almost always drawn to gray, pink, and white nurseries. Then I found the pink and gray fabric from Carousel Designs and my vision really started to take shape. I don't know if it's really cottage chic but that's what I'm calling it! :)

There were times I just wasn't sure if we would finish it in time for Adelyn's arrival- especially because I was determined to DIY pretty much everything. I think I've spent pretty much every nap time for the last 8 weeks sewing or making something! It has been a true labor of love and despite it's tiny size (less than 10x10)  I am absolutely in love with the results. It's so neat to see your vision finally come to life and I am so, so excited that it's finished and that I can finally share it. Now we just need that precious baby girl to make her appearance and it will truly be complete!

Despite my best efforts I don't think the colors of the paint or fabric came through exactly as they are, but I think you can get the idea. The paint really is more gray but it does look kind of beige here. You'll also see that there are many shades of pink! Pink is harder to match than you would think! :) Ok- enough rambling- here she is in all her glory: 
























And since the room is so tiny and hard to photograph, here are two panoramic shots and a video to give you a better idea of the layout.

Window Pane: Target (it was meant to be a picture frame but I removed the second pane of glass and Jesse spray painted it white. I saw it on clearance not long after I bought it and cannot find it online.)
Fabric Wreath: DIY using this tutorial. Instead of using ribbon I used strips of fabric and lace. I tore them instead of cutting them so that it would have more of a shabby chic look.
Fabric Chandelier: DIY. I couldn't find a tutorial for this so I kind of made it up as I went. 
Mirrors: Ebay, thrift stores, Home Goods, etc. Some of them are just picture frames with craft mirrors or mirrored scrapbook paper in them. They were all different colors to start with but a few coats of spray paint took care of that!

And that's it! I apologize for so many pictures- I just wanted to make sure I captured all of the little details of Adelyn's sweet little room! I hope you love it as much as I do!
