The One with Brainstorming Ideas for Jane's Half-Room


Thursday, April 12, 2012

With just 15 weeks/105 days to go 'til Jane's here, I'm feeling the nesting urge and am trying to figure out how to decorate her half of the room!

These are my ideas for Jane's nursery so far, mostly designed around this pillow that I just bought from Linda Kay Matthews:

ON THE WALL
I want to paint one wall exactly this color with this stencil:

I'm still a big fan of the collage/frame look and I definitely love all the different frames/canvases/artsy fartsy things on this wall by Ginny Phillips; I'd simply paint everything to match my color scheme:

I want to mix in a few fabric embroidery hoops:

This hoop is already the perfect color, no painting needed!

And I want to add in a few of these mirror frames:

Super cute DIY stencil frames, available from the Delta Girl Distressed Frames etsy shop.

I'd use the right shade of pink to match using either Jane's or my fingerprints and put this in a tiny frame on the wall:

I'll add a few vintage floral prints in some of the frames. I found this image and soooo many other wonderful and beautiful and girly and dainty things on Nest Pretty Things Tumblr.

What room would be complete without its own version of the IKEA ung drill mirror frame? I'll spray paint it pink to match the room.

NECESSITIES
A hamper. I think white wicker would be nice.
Photobucket
A diaper pail. Boring. But we gotta have one since the dumpster is all the way outside. We have the blue one for Fox and it's alright (I think smelliness leaks through the cracks, but other than that it's great), so we'll just get the same thing in pink for Jane.

ON THE FLOOR
Still very undecided about what I want on the floor, but I think with all the different colors going on we'll opt for something white like this shag rug from IKEA:

THE CRIB
I love everything about this Venetian iron crib from Pottery Barn Kids, except for the whopping $900 price tag...
Photobucket
So instead, we're going to get this Davinci Jenny Lind crib for only $169. It's got great reviews on Amazon, it's the look I want, AND, it's the same crib that Vivi Charles from Lay Baby Lay has! (Pay no attention to the bedding inside the crib.)
Photobucket
For the bedding I want simple since there will be a lot of other things going on. Light pink gingham it is!
Photobucket
With a matching pink gingham bumper.

FURNITURE
I love the blue version of this HEMNES dresser from IKEA for Fox, so I'd like to get a gray one for Jane and then replace all the knobs with pretty ones from Anthropologie.

Wouldn't it be nice to have fresh wildflowers in beakers all year round sitting on top of the dresser? It would it would.
Photobucket

The glider and ottoman that we got to use with Fox is still in great and working condition and we purposefully got the fabric in yellow so that it could work for a boy or girl. Done and done!
Photobucket

MISCELLANEOUS
Gotta get a new Boppy cover! The one I have and used with Fox is blue and green. Which, sure, girls can wear blue and green, but we gotta celebrate all things girl! I'm working with For the Love of Joy to get a quilted Boppy cover made in the right colors. I can't wait!
Photobucket

I just want to dangle some of the vintage barrettes everywhere :)
Photobucket

The carseat that we have is in definite need of a makeover. I'm trying to get ahold of Sew Cute in AZ to see if we can get something made. 
Photobucket

AAAAND, the pièce de résistance: I want to make a butterfly chandelier exactly like this one from Second Sister Suaviloquy:
Photobucket
I'm going to call her soon and find out exactly what I need to make it, cuz this will definitely be the centerpiece of Jane's half of the room!
Photobucket
That's it for now!
