Emerson Quinn // Nursery Reveal

Guess what?!  I'm finally sharing Emerson's nursery! Better late then never. Am I right?! It was definitely a labor of love and I'm happy with the outcome.

We painted the room Gray Beard by Olympic. It's super light and depending on the light it can look blue or purple at times. 

We decided to use a dresser we already owned as a changing table. I'm in love with this MCM piece and designed the room around it. The best part is we scored it for $15 a few summers ago at a garage sale! #winning

Above the dresser/changing table is a mix of new and old. I purchased the round metal mirror at TJMaxx a few years ago and never could find a place for it, until now. The prints to the right are antique lithographs my mom found at a garage sale 10+ years ago. They're images of various European landmarks [i.e., London Eye, Eiffel Tower, etc]. To the left are shelves from Ikea with books, photos, etc. 

I'm absolutely in love with the ceiling light. I knew it was the one when I saw it. [Ceiling Light (currently 50% off)similar]

The rug was a piece I was on the fence about for awhile, but it ended up working out once everything was pulled together.  If you have a dog I wouldn't recommend this rug it's really starting to show the wear and tear after only 6 months.

I really love this side of the room. Everything from the DIY blanket ladder to the collage above the crib. We were gifted with so many handmade blankets and the ladder is a great way to display them.

I searched and searched for an affordable glider/rocker and landed on this bad boy. It's perfect and so comfy.

Another shot of the shelves. Did you notice the rocking horse? That was my childhood rocking horse.  Emerson's room is a great mix of new and old pieces.

Close up of the dresser. It didn't look this good until my hubby refinished it.

Regarding the collage it's a mix of free printables and etsy.

Again, we were gifted so many nice blankets and I was looking for a way to display them. Instead of spending $$ at PB for this ladder the hubby DIY'd one for me! Didn't it turn out great. He's so handy. Oh and it only cost about $10 since we used stain we already had.

    1. Thanks Jillian. I was so torn on the rug at first, but it ended up really working.

  3. I love the eclectic mix of everything in her room! Those shelf brackets really dress up the shelves... I might have to take a trip to Ikea. :-) Those printables are super cute... and the deer book ends!! I want to hang out in her room. haha

    1. Ikea keeps surprising me... I've even seen some people paint the brackets gold or a fun color.
