It’s been a long time coming. If you even remember, we shared we were expecting our 3rd child and 1st girl back at the end of the fall One Room Challenge. From there, it was crickets until I announced our design plan earlier this year.
Look at Nursery Before Renovation
It’s been a loooooong couple months working to get this nursery to match my vision. And boy does it EVER! But first, remember what it looked used to look like?
Then it was back to hearing crickets for a few weeks, we had some bad weather coupled with the fact that I am in fact pregnant, tired, and cranky and my husband and I both work. We just didn’t get a lot done.
I shared another update on weeks 2 and 3 progress and the final update 2 weeks ago. Even though it was slow moving, I loved getting to do a lot with my husband. Making all my farmhouse nursery ideas come to life was so fulfilling.
We had to do a lot after the kids were asleep but it was fun getting to work on things with him. If only this could be our full-time job (a girl can dream, right?!)…
I guess I should also mention that I don’t particularly like themes when it comes to nurseries. I decided to go for a farmhouse look, complete with the normal neutrals of that style (grays and creams).
Then, in addition, I wanted to add pops of pink because she’s a GIRL (!!!!) with floral accents. But, enough rambling. Time to see some pretty pictures!!
The Farmhouse Nursery Reveal
Ahhh isn’t it amazing?! The entire nursery is more beautiful than I could have ever envisioned. It’s such a wonderful feeling seeing my initial ideas/vision come to life and surpass what I thought was possible.
It all started with a little paint. If you can only afford to do one small renovation, PAINT! I’m always blown away by the difference a simple coat of paint makes.
Paint Ideas for Farmhouse Nursery
We chose to paint the room Alabaster by Sherwin-Williams and I’m SO glad we did. It’s the perfect neutral paint color that absolutely screams farmhouse style to me.
I also love how warm it makes the room feel while still providing a clean, neutral backdrop for the rest of the space. I cannot recommend this color enough!!
No room would be complete without a little shiplap, right? We added a faux shiplap feature wall for around $30 that was also painted Alabaster, so it definitely made the cut for the best paint colors for shiplap.
You can read the full tutorial for the shiplap wall here. It’s the perfect focal point for the room and a great wall to center her crib on!
Floor Coverings Add Contrast
Next, we got rid of the old gray and white striped rug and I found my rug soulmate. When I first had an image of what I wanted the nursery to look like, I envisioned basically this exact rug.
And, to actually FIND it from Plush Rugs and USE it in the nursery is incredible.
The base cream color is almost an exact match to the wall color (total coincidence that I wasn’t planning). The dark and light gray pattern on the top is the perfect match for the space.
Unfortunately, the pretty area rug is no longer sold, but here’s a similar one.
Selecting Furniture for Farmhouse Nursery
On top of the rocker (which also reclines meaning I’ll probably just sleep in it), I added two gorgeous pillows from Tonic Living. One is pale pink and the other is mixed pink florals. They really tie the entire room “theme” together while also making such a pretty accent to the rocker.
Did I mention the pillows are also soooo comfortable? That’s an absolutely necessity for the late night nursing sessions in my near future!
Wallpaper Accents in the Nursery Closet
One of my favorite parts of the room is the closet. From the gorgeous floral wallpaper to the custom-built cubbies and shelves, there’s not much I don’t love about this space. And, that’s not even mentioning the best part – skinnylap closet doors!!
Now that all the big stuff was complete, it was time to move on to my favorite part – room styling and decorating! I got to work and enlisted my hubby to help!
Ideas to Style and Decorate Farmhouse Nursery
We updated an old and unused curtain rod with spray paint and some new knobs. I used old curtains I had to complete the whole window look.
My hubby built the most perfect DIY shadow box using an old frame I had for almost no money at all. If you remember, I was originally crushing on a shadow box that was WAYY over budget.
I found an old 8-pane window for just a few dollars. After giving it some TLC (removing the glass, cleaning it and applying sealer), we mounted it to the wall. I made a simple wreath that we hung from the window with old lace. The whole thing looks beautiful and oh-so-rustic above her bed!
Next, I made some farmhouse style shelves to go above her new farmhouse dresser. I loved filling the shelves with little frames, accents (like this DIY nursery name sign and string art), and photos of our growing family. Learn more about styling open shelves here.
I also grabbed a few baskets for some storage in her room. This smaller white basket from Serena & Lily (a luxury, home decor brand) is so sturdy and perfect for holding her multitude of swaddle blankets.
One of my absolute favorite projects from the nursery is this wood bead chandelier I made from a cheap IKEA chandelier. It was SO easy to make!
Decorating the Farmhouse Nursery Closet
In addition to the baskets around the nursery, I added a TON of baskets inside the custom closet. Plus, we used piping to make our own hanging rod.
One of my favorite little details in the room is the antique knobs, plates, and hardware on the skinnylap closet doors.
We found all the old rusted hardware at the same place we found the old window (Construction Junction if you’re in Pittsburgh!) and spray painted them a matte black. You just can’t find stuff like this anymore (and yes, I know I sound like an old lady;) )
Just look at these knobs!!!!
I am head over heels in LOVE with this nursery. I jokingly said I want to put one of those ropes across the door like you would see in a museum to prevent anyone from going in.
A huge thank you to my amazing husband for always supporting me and helping me do a million projects I dream up. Also to my FIL for always coming up to assist when I think of something else I need help with and for sacrificing his own time to help with the room.
I am so grateful and so lucky to have teamed up with some amazing brands for this nursery makeover. Thank you SO much to the following companies for sponsoring the makeover:
