audrey’s nursery – part two

I really loved the way the nursery turned out :


: but it didn’t quite feel finished.

Granted, I still needed a chandelier and was looking for the perfect rug to fill in that gaping space on the floor.  I loved it, but something about it bothered me.

So yesterday, in a spurt of sudden inspiration, I made some changes.


This room has strange dimensions with those poorly placed three little windows throwing the whole thing off.  By moving the bed to the center of the room and placing the dresser under the windows, I think they make a little more sense.


I bought this sweet paper last weekend not really sure of where I’d put it:

sweet treats

But it has all sorts of sweet treats and my baby girl is pretty sweet, so seemed fitting to add it to her room.


And because of the touch of golden yellow in the print, I decided the room could use a little touch of golden yellow as well {in the form of a fabric bunched-up flower pinned to the pillow}


It works well with the gold frames, the wallpaper and old painted chair



I have been trying to decide how to put Audrey’s scripture verse over her crib.  I wanted it to be it’s own piece of art {not directly painted on the wall}, but I also didn’t want it to be something heavy that could potentially fall on her in the middle of the night.


So I embroidered her verse in a piece of {what else?} IKEA curtain fabric and mounted it to foam core {with some upholstery tacks added for fun}.  I think it does the trick.


Oh, husband, how I love you for hanging this chandelier.


with a little glittery bird clipped on.




So there’s the room as of today.


I think I like this version.

    I really love this nursery! You thought of everything in here. I love how it looks modern and vintage at the same time. So sweet. It seems like every little detail has meaning and i LOVE that.

    What a beautiful and sophisticated room for a girl. I’m curious about how you applied the gift wrap to the wall. I know a lot of people asked for a tutorial on your original post about the bedroom. I searched the blog and didn’t find anything more about it. Are you keeping it your little secret, or did I just miss it somewhere?

    I love the idea of having a verse for each child over their bed. Do you have suggestions for other good “guide to life” verses?

    I know this post is very old, but I’m also dying to know where you found the chandelier? Love the room, what a lucky little girl.

    I could see the alcove where the crib is, with two drapes (ceiling to floor) on either side, pulled back. Beautiful room. Love the ruffle on the window treatments! Love your blog.

    I’d love to know about the blue striped pillow…I’m planning to use that EXACT fabric in my nursery! Did you buy the pillow or sew it from scratch?

    The room looks beautiful and so sweet. The only thing I would caution you about are the tacks surrounding the Scripture verse. When Audrey starts standing up in her crib and reaching for things, I wouldn’t want to find a tack pulled out and popped in her mouth. My grandson pulled a silver piggy bank down from a ledge over his crib and nearly konked himself out.

    Is the nursery twin bed also painted rushing river? I’m getting ready to paint a dresser and want to make sure….I love everything about Audrey’s nursery! Every single detail is amazing!

    Where did you get the crib bedding!? Beautiful!

    I have short windows too that I need to make roman’s for. How did you do it for such a short window? It looks like you only used 2 dowels, is that correct?

      Mine are not even attached correctly :) Just folded fabric and then hooked onto the blinds on each window.

    Where is this wallpaper from? It looks like roses…is it?

    • emily February 1, 2013 at 9:17 am #

      It is gift wrap from caskata {peonies}

        But how do you attach it to the wall…doesn’t it rip with harbor yellow over time since its not actually treated for walls?

    Is your rocker slip covered? I’ve searched everywhere for a white slipcover for my rocker and only found off-white, almost yellow. Any suggestions? I’m loving your blog- been following for just a few months but you’ve already instigated several recent crafts that turned out wonderfully. Thanks for the inspiration!
