Everlee's nursery is probably my favorite of all three kids'. When I first started brainstorming, despite not knowing her gender, I knew I wanted giraffe print and orange to be the main scheme of the room. I also knew I wanted to reuse a lot of decor and baskets that Reese and Cru used, which added added a lot of green and turquoise to the color scheme. Once I finally found bedding that incorporated all those colors, I waited until she was born to add all the little finishing touches. So c'mon, lets take a look...
Here is the view from the hallway walking in.
Also from the hallway....
which looks a little different now (I put the "E" on the shelf and added some hooks for headbands).
Furniture placement was a challenge in this room because a) it's a small room and b) I'm no designer. So, at 9 months pregnant, I rearranged the furniture 6 times! I'm happy with how it turned out.
OK, back to the tour.
This is the wall to the left when you walk in.
My eyes look at that picture first thing every time I walk in her room.....LOVE IT!
The cubed bookshelves are pretty much a staple in all three kids' rooms. I like how they hold books, hide toys, and display decor all in one shelf.
Since taking these pictures, I've added a simple orange lamp to the shelf.
The orange and white polka dot book is her baby book.
I ordered it here, and I think it's absolutely perfect!
Here is the window wall....turquoise curtains are now up!
Her closet is opposite that wall. I use lots of baskets to keep things organized.
When putting Reese's nursery together, I got these shelves, which I painted white and now spray painted brown. I kinda liked the way they looked with some of the white showing thru.
The turquoise picture frame used to be red with turquoise polka dots, which I painted before Reese was born. It worked in Cru's room too and would have worked in Everlee's, but I wanted to add the Bible verse to it, so I decided to spray paint it a solid color. My dad decaled the verse for me.
The baskets on the changing table have also been around since before Reese was born and also used with Cru.
And I got the orange rug for Reese's nursery, which she continued to use until she moved to the basement. It works perfect in here!
We got the crib when I was pregnant with Reese. It was free! We've used it with each of the kids. I definitely appreciate hand-me-downs!
We've saved money by reusing practically everything with each child, but one thing I haven't reused is bedding.
I am in love with Everlee's bedding! It's all hand made and the colors are fantastic! I ordered it here.
Once I finally decided on the bedding, I got right on a project I was really excited about....
a ribbon mobile!
I was about half way through making it, and I ran out of ribbon. Chet suggested I wait until after the baby was born to finish it because in his words, "It's a little girly."
I waited and thank goodness I had a precious little girl so I could finish my "girly" project!
OK, there's just one more thing I'd like to share. While I was pregnant with Everlee, my bff was pregnant with her baby boy, Tyson. As part of her shower gift, I ordered Tyson some soft blocks with the letters of his name on them from this Etsy shop. I thought they turned out so cute, I knew our baby needed some!
The owner of the shop was so easy to work with. I told her the colors and patterns I was wanting, she sent me choices, I narrowed them down, and then let her do the rest. Love them!!!
Thank for touring Everlee's room! I love the room and I think it's perfect for her. I seem to fall more and more in love with it every time I walk in it....
just like I fall more and more in love with her every single day!
And let me just add, this precious little thing slept in her room for the first time last night. She woke up at 1:00 to eat, then went right back to sleep until 8:45! Can I get an AMEN!
