The Nursery

McKenna Jane,
This is your humble abode which was once your older sister Gabrielle's room. I had hoped Daddy would paint over the murals a tone on tone pink as I dreamed of using Gabi's baby bedding which I loved so much. It is a Liz Claiborne fabric which is somewhat shabby chic. Daddy apparently was/is a little more attached to the wall murals than I had thought as he refused to paint :( He said that if I agreed to make due with the murals that he would paint when it was time to transition you into a "big girl" room. I stumbled upon your new crib bedding at the Fall Kids Consignment sale that I consigned in. It was the perfect theme, color & price!

The beautiful quilt at the foot of your bed was a gift from our neighbor Melanie Vance. Mommy treasures handmade gifts!

This is the view from your bedroom door

Close up of dresser & book hutch
A to Z bookends purchased at Pottery Barn years ago
"Wish Upon a Star" plaque purchased at Hobby Lobby
Baskets with liners purchased at Home Goods
Silly sunglass clad piggy bank was a gift from Shanty and Shalika next door.

Mommy has owned this glider since my pre-Daddy days. He tried to talk me into getting rid of it several times, but I knew it would serve it's purpose over the years. We used it in Gabrielle's room and then had the cushions recovered when Dawson was born.
Shag rug purchased at Target.

Sis and I stumbled upon this fun lamp one afternoon while shopping at Hobby Lobby. I knew right away that I wanted it and that it would fit into your nursery well. Sis fought me as she really wanted it for her own bedroom.

This was my last added touch to your room.
Metal wall letters found here.
Although you are rooming in with Daddy and Mommy for the time being I still love to spend time in your bedroom. Your room is on the front side of the house which faces West so it gets terrific sunlight during the day. I like to sit in the glider and talk to you, sing to you or just be with you. There is something that just never gets old about looking at the beautiful baby that you are. I love you my sweet pint size princess.

It's so cute! Those letters are ADORABLE! I might have to snag some of those for Adalyn's room. Can't wait to see her pink big girl room someday. :)
