Show Us Your Life: Nurseries & Kid’s Rooms

I’m a day late on this, and I don’t actually have the room ready to show off yet, so I thought I’d do a quick post on our choices so far for Hadley’s nursery. 

Here is the room right after we painted and had gotten in the crib/dresser:

Walking in…  this is a small room so it’s tough to take a good picture of it.  Paint color is Portobello by Sherwin WilliamsIMG_3253

Crib and Dresser are the Salerno line by Pali IMG_3254 IMG_3256

This corner by the window is where the glider will go… IMG_3257

Looking back out towards the door (don’t mind the fan – I told you this was right after we painted!)IMG_3252  IMG_3259

I have the bedding already, but the bumper is in the process of being monogrammed by my friend Keely (check out her etsy shop, The Buggy Boutique – she makes the cutest stuff!) – so I thought I’d just share pictures of some of the other things we plan to do in here…

Here’s the bedding: It’s the scallop pique nursery bedding from Pottery Barn Kids.  I am using different sheets than what’s shown, adding a different monogram, thanks to Keely, and changing out the ties as well. 


Here’s the glider we ordered:  It’s the Newco Taylor Classic Swivel Glider – ordered from Babies R Us.  I’m thinking we might have to order the ottoman that goes with it too for those late night feedings.


I’m still trying to find a rug I like for a good price, and same with window treatments, a book shelf and I think a cubbie system to help organize her closet.  Here are a couple of my ideas so far…

  Rugs: I’d love to get one of these in a round shape – but those seem to be so much more expensive!

Window Treatments:  The wall her window is on actually has a vaulted ceiling, so I’m trying to find a solution to being able to have a cornice board up there and hanging drapes from inside, otherwise I may just do a roman shade or some other type of shade. 


I’m going to try to paint a canvas with Proverbs 3:24 " When you lie down you will not be afraid; when you lie down, your sleep with be sweet” on it to go over her crib.  If I can’t make it look cute enough I may try to find someone on etsy to do it for me!   I’m also painting a little H that I’m going to cover with scrapbook paper to go on one of her shelves, and I’m going to try to make my own closet-clothing organizers based on the idea I saw here -- – and maybe a bow holder as well.  Hopefully I will have time to get all these crafts done with the holidays coming! 

I guess that’s about all I have to show – we don’t have a bookshelf picked out yet either, so no pictures for that yet.  Hopefully I’ll have some more progress on the nursery soon and can show off the final product! 

Thanks for stopping by!  Check out the other links on Kelly’s Korner for some more kid room/nursery inspiration!

Such a beautiful color. I love how it pops against the white. It will be a beautiful room!
