Elinor’s Nursery

This weekend we accomplished more in our house than we have in months.  Justin’s mom kept Cora overnight Friday so we could paint Elinor’s nursery.  We stayed up late and managed to finish painting her room.  Saturday I threw it all together.  It is full of little imperfections which, if you came to our house…you would see throughout.  I don’t know if the imperfections stem from working within a tight budget, buying mostly second-hand, or just laziness…

Welcome to Elinor’s room:

The rug I found last year at Marshalls for $40!  I could not believe the price so I snatched it up and bought it long before I had any vision for what I wanted the room to look like.  The bedding I bought at a bedding outlet.  The bed skirt is actually a twin bedskirt and I cannot quite figure out how the get it straight all the way around.  Any advice?

Her little pink chair I bought 3 years ago when I was pregnant with Cora.  It was $5 at a yard sale and I could not pass it up.  I am glad to finally have a place for it.

The chest of drawers we found it at an antique store near Justin’s work.  We love it!  Justin’s dad painted Elinor her name.  Isn’t it precious?

Justin’s mom found us this change table at a yard sale.  Justin painted it white.  It is nice to finally have a place to change Elinor.

My friend Ashley painted Elinor the little animal prints.

We found this awesome book shelf at my favorite local antique store.  It was a countertop used in restaurant or store…complete with a can opener on the far right side.

Elinor is of course oblivious to her new space but big sister is obsessed…

We are happy to finally have a space for our baby.  Now we just need to get her sleeping through the night in her crib!

    Oh I love how it looks. I would never have noticed an imperfection, instead I thought it looked like something from a magazine. You really have a knack for decorating and finding the perfect pieces.
