On Thursday my little girl is entering the world, so to mark this special occasion I’m sharing all the nursery details this week!
To save money, Mr. JC and I opted to move the furniture from Big D’s room into the nursery: the crib, dresser, and upholstered rocking chair. The crib and dresser are white and a pretty simple design, so I knew they would work in my girl’s room. However, I wanted to add a little bit of girly glamor to her dresser without spending a lot of time or money.
The solution was a set of flower-shaped glass knobs to replace the basic white wooden ones that came with the dresser. I found them on eBay and spent $33 with free shipping on twelve knobs.
Mr. JC had to make the screw holes deeper since the new knobs’ screws were shorter than the originals, but he said that was a pretty easy fix.
How cute are the alphabet cards? They are free printables from The Handmade Home. I originally found them on Pinterest and used them to make centerpieces for my friend’s alphabet theme baby shower last year. The colors work perfectly in the nursery, and I love the girly images like “B is for ballerina” and “H is for high heels.” I hung them up on plain old string with mini clothes pins according to the way the song is sung. I expect I’ll have to secure the bottom row somehow once my little girl sits up. But hey – at least they’re free and easy to print if she rips one!
- My dad made the wooden changing pad holder.
- The changing pad cover is from Amazon.
- The diaper caddy is by Munchkin, a gift from my mom for Big D’s nursery. You can find it on Amazon.
