Lyla's Nursery

Once I found out we were having a girl I started thinking about how I wanted to decorate her nursery. Of course I turned to Pinterest for ideas and color schemes. At first I loved the really elegant and all white nurseries. Then I decided that might be a little hard to pull off and it's not totally my style. After a little more searching I found a nursery that I wanted to use as my inspiration. The main thing I loved was the color scheme, white, coral, and aqua. I also fell in love with the focal wall and knew I had to recreate it somehow. I bought a stencil off Etsy and put Rob to work. ;) I am partly kidding. We both started off painting and painted the rest of the room a really pale pink. Once we got to the stencil part, i started off helping and got about half way, then the beautiful pregnancy symptoms (backache, nausea from the paint, heatstroke, etc) hit me. So my wonderful husband finished it for me! When he got done he instantly said "this babes better be a girl." He is not about to repaint that wall anytime soon... I LOVE the way it all came together and as much work as it was to paint that wall, it was so worth it! So here it is!! (Not that I think too many people will really care, but just incase you are curious I will give a brief rundown of where we got things)

*Frames - Target and I painted them blue
*Crib - Amazon I think it is called the DaVinvi Jayden crib

*Chair - Down to Earth

*Bedding - Serena and Lily (Punch Basics)

*Dresser - My mom and dad ( it was brown but we spray painted it white)

*Pom poms - I made these out of styrofoam balls and fabric ( cut tons of little circles, fold in fourths, and pin)

 *Blanket - My mom's crochet work at it's finest. 

*Curtains & Bookshelf - IKEA
*Rug - Target

After baby Lyla arrives I plan to get some newborn pictures taken and make a gallery wall above the dresser. I will move the pom pom balls into the corner left of the bookshelf. I also haven't decided what else to put on top of the bookshelf. I am thinking maybe some letter blocks with her name or something like that!
