Wow...the day is finally here...no, not the baby, sillies---the big reveal of the baby's room!

I am very happy with the way it turned out. I love the big, bright shapes on the wall and in the fabric. It feels very fun and stimulating during the day but at night all the small-scale lighting makes it really cozy too. Storage seems decent, although I'm sure I'll have stuff bursting at the seams before I know it. My favorite item has got to be my mom's rocking chair. All the other personal items from my childhood also make it feel like home.

Here's a quick rundown of sources:

P.S. I also just posted some pics on ratemyspace, if you'd like to show some love over there!


  1. How beautiful and exciting. Well worth the wait! As will be your little girl. Fourth of July seems like a cool birthday. Maybe you'll pop then.

  2. I LOVE it all. Please come re-do my entire home.

  3. I am so sappy this made me cry. It's so sweet and beautiful and you can tell it was made with so much love. I can't wait to meet her. Love you, Lori

  4. This room is amazing, Mary! I can't believe it! WOW!

  5. I just saw you room on rate my space and loved it! Did you do the walls yourself? If so, how?

  6. @ Brasher...Thanks! I borrowed a friend's opaque projector, placed it up on a ladder in the dark room, put the fabric underneath the lens and traced the giant shapes onto the wall. Then I just painted them in by hand!

  7. Amazing! That fabric looks so good in your space. Thanks so much for sharing the link. What a lovely room you created- and for such a steal!

  8. Hi! I saw your nursery on Rate My Space. It is adorable and I love the colors. Is there any way that you could post what paint colors you used? I stink at trying to match anything! :)
