Hilary moved into this home five months after baby Blayke was born. On a tight schedule and a tight budget of $200, she was able to add more and really decorate the room for her daughter. “The biggest challenge of this nursery was colors. I never picked pink and white, it just happened that way, but I’m glad.”
Several years ago Hilary went to Paris and bought the mini Eiffel tower while she was at the real thing. Now it sits in Blayke’s nursery. “I love her crib, now that it’s white, her dresser and I love everything on the shelves on the wall. I love how her name is in big letters, the pink Roxy clock, the candle. I love the picture frames and of course the pictures of her as an infant.”
Not only is Blayke’s quilt neutral and filled with everything baby like teddy bears and ducks, it has special meaning because Hilary’s mom made it. “When she gave it to me she said she had been waiting to give it to someone special. I would never think to put a quilt on the wall but that one I can’t imagine it anywhere else. Sometimes I find Blayke standing in her crib looking and touching the quilt, I love having that personal touch.”
Most of the artwork on Blayke’s wall was handmade by Hilary. “One of my favorite DIY projects in her room is the framed ‘b’ hanging by the door. I love the paper behind the letter, and it is very personal with her first initial.”
Thanks Hilary for sharing Blayke’s nursery with us!
What’s in Blayke’s nursery:
Crib –gift from my sister, I painted it white…painting a crib is hard work!
Bedding- Target, quilt in bed from my mom
Dresser-purchased second hand, was originally black, I painted it white and bought pink handles
Chair- we have the rocking chair in our bedroom since it didn’t fit in her room, my husband bought it second hand, stripped the paint and stained it for me.
