I laugh and I cry when I look at these "before" pictures of the nursery. I laugh because we took the nicest room in the house and completely redecorated it. There are plenty of other rooms in my house that are in worse need of a make-over, yet this is the one we redid. I laugh because these pictures of Krew's old nursery have been pinned and repinned on Pinterest thousands of times, and this room no longer looks like this. I cry because I loved creating such a special place for my baby Krew, who is almost three now, and certainly not a baby any more. In fact, I really did cry when I walked in and saw the room after Bart had painted over the turquoise and green argyle, because that meant this room really was gone.
After I got over the shock of saying goodbye to my little boy's nursery, I got excited to turn it into a beautiful place for my little baby girl!
I loved the gray walls, so they stayed the same color they had been before. Then, we added several different colors of pink, and lace accents and this is what we got:
We painted this old dresser the same pink as the crib and added frames of various shades of pink on the wall, that someday I plan to fill with photos of my princess.
More pink and gray and lace.
This nightstand is one of the first projects I did for the nursery. This nightstand was actually made by my grandpa, and was in my room all growing up. It's been painted several times before, but this is my favorite: blush pink with confetti glitter, and a jewel handle.
A pink chandelier, of course.
