Pink and Gray Baby Girl Nursery

My little niece Tori is growing up fast! It seems like just yesterday that I was taking newborn photos of her and now she's a little crawler! When I went to my sister's house to take photos of Tori for her Parts Poster, I also took photos of the nursery she had been preparing for her. She did such a nice job on it! There were a lot of little homemade projects involved and it all came together beautifully. 

Today I want to share those photos with you and a bit about how she created some of the pieces in the room (or where she found them).

Dresser, Crib: IKEA
Crystal Knobs: Ebay
Mirror: Burlington Coat Factory
Rug: Homesense

Name Frames

Frames were from IKEA.  Glass was removed, scrapbook paper applied for the background.  Wooden letters came from Michaels and were painted with the same colour as the walls and then a coat of sparkly paint.  Letters were glued (with a glue gun) to the frames.

Chandelier 

Purchased from IKEA.  Amber took it apart and painted it then reassembled the crystal part. (Tip: It was time consuming to try to remember how to put it back together again, so if you try this, take note of how it all fits together before you take it apart!)

How to Make Your Own Ruler Height Chart by www.RaisingMemories.com

Height Chart

She used a piece of wood (Pine, 1x6" and 6' tall), which she got from Lowes.  She painted it white and used stencils from Staples to paint the pink numbers on.  Next, nail it to the wall, 6" up from the ground.  She measured to mark the lines with a Sharpie permanent marker, and adds the dates with Sharpie.


I hope you enjoyed checking out her cute nursery!

2 years after publishing this, I posted photos of Tori's
Toddler Bedroom, so check that out, too!

  3. This is the cutest most adorable baby girl nursery I have seen in a long time. It made me wish so badly for another girl. I am secretly hoping that if we get pregnant again (we are trying) that it will be a girl. I am happy with either but I have one girl who is almost 11 and 3 boys, a little more pink won't hurt any of us

    1. Hi Amanda, I will ask my mom for details. This was made around 2 years ago, so hopefully she will remember. I'll let you know what I find out!

    2. Hi Again :) She said that velcro was used to keep the bow up once it was tied. She had to look at the picture to try and remember how they did it, but she thinks they attached velcro to the crib bumper. The rest of it was tied onto the bars of the crib and woven in and out.

    2. Hi Again :) You could use any silky fabric or whatever fabric you like. She said that velcro was used to keep the bow up once it was tied. She had to look at the picture to try and remember how they did it, but she thinks they attached velcro to the crib bumper. The rest of it was tied onto the bars of the crib and woven in and out.
