The furniture holds a few surprises; the baby's cherry crib bedding in shades of peach is the unexpected treat that I promised. And what a treat it is!
Go here to see more. Mom, Ashley, had a clear vision of how she wanted to decorate her baby girl's nursery only to learn that she couldn't find the baby bedding or decorations that she had in mind at any of the baby boutiques or online stores. I'm guessing, but I imagine that most crib sets with cherry print fabrics that she found while out shopping featured red cherries, not peachy ones. Nobody had what she needed for sale so she ended up buying the cherry print fabric and making the crib bedding set including the bumper pad and crib skirt herself.
The results, as you can see from the nursery pictures, are amazing! However, Ashley says that making the set was one of the best and the worst of the project's experiences.
But the custom cherry crib bedding was by no means the ONLY idea for homemade nursery decorations that she had.
During her pregnancy, Ashley went through a time that she refers to as her "nesting" phase when she kept busy with some fun crafts projects. She put the energy to use and made this pretty pinwheel baby mobile using ribbon left over from an Anthropologie bag, a cheap embroidery hoop and scrapbook paper with a total cost of less than $10 ($9.26 to be exact).
And she didn't stop with making baby girl a custom pinwheel mobile.
When baby girl's bargain savvy grandmother found a changing table/dresser combination at a garage sale for only $25 she made it into something fantastic! If you've done much shopping for nursery furniture lately, you know this was a steal of a deal but it took lots of work to bring it around.
You see, the piece didn't match the decor in this pretty
peach and ivory baby girl nursery; it was an ugly shade of brown.
This is the picture of the re-claimed dresser AFTER the makeover that included painting and the addition of the cute Anthropologie knobs (total cost of the makeover $30). To see the BEFORE pictures, please visit Johnny and Ashley's Blog.
Please..go there now to see what a difference some paint and new dresser drawer pulls made. And don't forget to leave a comment telling her that you think she did a super job.
The antique white or ivory paint color of the changer is reflected in the elegant chair draped with a colorful quilt to the side. The upholstery of the armchair and charcoal gray color of the area rug are a perfect complement for the light and airy shades of pastel peach seen elsewhere in the room.
Ashley also made the storage boxes on the baby's bookshelf.
As beautiful as the crib bedding, custom changing table and pinwheel mobile are; I'm SO knocked out (and a little envious) of the organization in this area.
Johnny and Ashley's baby girl's clothes serve as part of the nursery's decorations. Her little outfits are just perfect for the nursery color scheme.
This piece of art brings many colors into the space as well as giving a slight nod to indicate a subtle elephant or cherry nursery theme. In fact, it's the only item featured in the peach and ivory baby girl nursery pictures that suggests that there is a theme of any kind in play which is exactly as it should be.
I hope that Unique Baby Gear Ideas' visitors have enjoyed the tour of this baby girl's room as much as I have.
