BABY GIRL’S NURSEY
SHE has arrived (9 weeks ago :P)! Charlotte Ramona Fortsch is here! Still can’t believe baby Fortsch is a GIRL! I was 100% convinced she was going to be a boy. Surprise! She is so precious!! After much procrastinating and spending time with Charlotte I’m finally sharing the nursery with you!
I bought a few decorations pretty early on in my pregnancy, but knew I wasn’t going to be able to decorate the nursery for quite some time as we were planning to scrape the popcorn ceilings upstairs before we could start! Over Christmas time, my ever so amazing husband Alex, scraped the ceilings upstairs, resprayed and painted them. We started painting the trim white (never again) and the nursery walls shortly after and it slowly came together! Check it out!
The goal was to make a super neutral nursery and not spend a ton of money! Thankfully we didn’t know we were having a girl, otherwise it could have been dangerous. I tried to shop our home for some of the items! I already had the curtains, the small basket, the X and O, and the little chairs. The crib was gifted to us from our friend’s parents. It was originally black and Alex spent countless hours painting it white (13 bottles of spray paint)! 😊 The dresser we have had for years. I bought it at Goodwill for $40, knowing I would refinish it someday! Here is what it looked like before. The bottom drawers we had to put knobs on because they looked funny with the pulls on it.
Right when I started brainstorming the nursery decor, I had animal prints from Homegoods in mind, but they didn’t end up fitting in my design. The animal prints above the bed are from Hobby Lobby and the Hush Little Baby sign is from At Home. The X and O that are sitting on the dresser I painted with thrifted frames.
Alex built book shelves for all of the sweet books that were gifted to us. We have one more to add and I think I might have him build more for under the Hush Little Baby sign because we have so many books and I want Charlotte to have access to them when she gets older.
We love spending time in her nursery, especially rocking in the glider, which we got at Buy Buy Baby. We are very thankful for the changing table to save other spaces from the messes :p.
I am thankful for this space we have created for her and can’t wait to see how she grows in this space!
