Welp! My baby was due on January 9th and on that day the final piece of furniture came for her room (the crib). Luckily I went into labor that evening but it delayed me in posting here all the work I had done!

I wanted a room that could last into adult hood and wasn't overly girly. I wanted very minimal pink too and purple is my most favorite color. I'm thrilled with how this room turned out and I'm currently spending a LOT of time starring at the walls in the basement for my next project! :D

We bought this house last September and I've done a few other add ons since then that I'll get to later. No longer in that nasty place I posted about last time! :)

Changing Table. My favorite books as a child was the Raggedy Ann and Andy books and so I had to include some of them in the decor. I just loved this quote. THEN it turned out this was a book my husbands mom read to him ALL the time and was in love with. She nearly cried when she saw it. I had no idea lol.

My favorite piece of furniture of ALL time. That armiore was my husbands grandmother and was purchased some time in the 20's. It used to be robin egg blue but she was a heavy smoker. It then passed to my sister in law, my niece, me and now it's my daughters. <3 I love it so dearly. I'm going to replace the white tule with a light purple soon.

I love love love these wall decals. They came with tons of leaves and some yellow birds but she was a winter baby so I thought this was fitting. It also came with six trees but the other two we're putting in the play room with the leaves and the bird because that'll be a more summery area. :)

Still need to tie down that cord better...or paint it? IDK.

The piggy bank was mine as a child. The lunch box is obviously because I'm a huge beatles fan. And I love love love Hayao Miyazaki films so my friend got this Totoro for me while he was in Japan. <3

These shelves are full of family treasures.

Top Shelf: My baby girls middle name is Strawberry because our last name is Fields...this is the album that had the song "Strawberry Fields Forever" on it. <3 My uncle gave this to us. The Fry/Leela/Bender were our cake toppers at our wedding in 2011. I made these. <3

Next Shelf: The music box was given to my grandmother when she was a small child. It still works and she gave it to me when I was 16 or so. The yellow submarine is fairly obvious, I think. :)

The next shelf:

When I was born my grandma bought the entire set of these. So I got one every year for my birthday...the July was given to me on my 18th birthday since that is when I was born. My daughter was born in January and I looked all over the internet for this and found ONE. <3 She almost came in December so I'm thankful she didn't. LOL

The next shelf continued: My daughters first name is BeauLynn but we call her Beau and our pup is half pug so we put this in here. I love the color splash. This was given to us as a gift.

Bottom shelf: well this is a shelf I like to call "all her girly things" which had her sunglasses and pacifiers but we're using those now and so now it's her hair bows and the Beatles lullaby cd that we love. <3

Really an elegant but still friendly space. Well done.

What a great room! I love the birch trees.. I may have to find something like that for at some walls in my room.

My sister has a family heirloom piece of furniture in her little girls room, it's been handed down 3 generations now and I just love it. :)

Thank you! We really love nature so I wanted to incorporate that. We found this seller on ETSY and they're amazing! It was a lot of fun to use "Winter is Coming" as a theme for the room but then there really isn't anything GoT in there at all. lol

Family heirlooms and old pieces are my favorite! I wish I had more of them. :)

Oh, I love the trees! (As well as the color of the walls.)

That quote is lovely too. I can see why the MiL got all wibbly.

And what a cutie she is! (I'm a sucker for babies with glasses of any kind.) She is blessed to have such a creative mom to design such a lovely room for her.

Thank you! I could sit in there for hours. It was so great because the crib came weeks after the trees went up and it was a lot of fun to just sit and stare at them. lol

Thanks! I love the quote...the book to me is a bit creepy. :(

THANK YOU! My husband has glasses and so do all his siblings so I'm sure she will end up with them. Eh, maybe not but I kind of hope she does. I adore glasses on anyone! :) Thank you again :)

Absolutely beautiful! Live the color choice, the trees on the wall behind the crib...lovely.

Thank you! I must have heard from everyone "wow that's SO dark it'll look horrible for a baby room" but now they're IN love with it. :)

Very lovely. I like the armiore too. I would put mirrors instead of the fabric. It would open up the room and perhaps make it feel brighter. '

Don't you just love those vinyl wall things? We have a tree in my son's nursery. And it was so simple. He's two now and calls it "My Tree".

Thank you! I love that armiore to bits. I was so sad to have to give it to her honestly but it's totally best that way. :) That's a good idea!!! I'll try to figure out how to do that. :)

YES. They're my favorite. I first got one for my kitchen which I have set up as a "country kitchen" theme. Yellows, reds and other things but I'm going to be doing a lot more to it over time so I haven't posted here yet. BUT I did add this wall decal. I can't find the better picture but here is the one I took with Beau:

I got a country kitchen table and red seat cushions. anywho...my whole family is from WV so this is so fitting to me now that the family moved down to MD and we all live here. :)

That i so cute! that's why I added the fairies behind the door...so they can be "hiding" and she can show her future friends and it can be a cute little thing for her to have. hahaha. I hope she's cute like your son, at least! :)

Love that color! Adorable room and baby :)

Thank you! I heard from EVERYONE 'it's too dark" blah blah blah but I kept telling them to just wait for the final product and now they love it. :)

Thank you! I'm in love with them both! haha

Nursery envy over here! I love everything about this room! Let me warn you, if you read the book that the quote is from, be prepared to cry! I've only read it one time, and my eyes welled up when I saw the quote on your wall!

Haha thank you :)

yeah my husbands cousin actually got us the book recently and I read it for the first time. Apparently the author wrote that after having a stillborn. :(

Gorgeous nursery! Where did you get her crib? I love it.

BuyBuyBaby! LOL Came here for a FBF pic and saw your comment. Sorry!

Thank you! :) Starting on # 2 soon!

it's an absolutely adorable room! i especially love the wall decals. & your daughter is gorgeous. congratulations! ♥

This is so wonderful! I love that it's not too frilly/girly but has so many warm, thoughtful details. It really will grow up with her beautifully!

I love the tree decals - where did you get them? I think they look great without the leaves.

Thank you!!! I believe it was from an etsy shop. I actually paid about $100 which seems outrageous to me but I really liked this specific kind. I even used two extra and all the leaves on a SUMMER look in the basement playroom. :)

(Deleted comment)
Fantastic idea! I disappeared after posting this! LOL looks like the comment came a day before my husbands big 30th surprise party which is likely why. Sorry!

I will have to try that! Planning to get the same one in yellow for Babe #2

so beautiful!

at almost any hardware store, you can find a paintable cord cover that adheres to the wall. they are surprisingly inexpensive. i also like the cord scrunchie idea.

It looks awesome! I love SO MUCH that her middle name is Strawberry because your last name is Fields. SO MUCH!

hehe thank you! We often call her BeauBerry as a nickname.
