Scarlett’s nursery

Yesterday, I showed you some before pics. Today I’m going to show you the afters…

IMG_0664The crib/changing table combo came from Babies R Us. The bedding, including crib skirt, bumper, and comforter was made by me. I also made the diaper stacker and changing pad cover. 
Here’s a pic of the comforter. Couldn’t leave you hanging on that one!
For her name hanging, I bought wooden letters at JoAnn’s. Painted them white and added pink ribbon bows and pink ribbon to hang them. (They are hung with very small brass hooks…if you’re wondering.)

The mobile was originally a Baby Looney Tunes mobile that my older daughter, Crimson, had with her crib. I removed all the Looney Tunes characters and put them up for her. Then covered the entire mobile with the pink sateen material I used for the comforter. The hearts are each of the different pink materials I used for the bedding. The ribbon used to hang them is the same ribbon used to hang the name letters. It was purchased at JoAnn’s as well.
Here’s another view of the crib. This would be from the glider rocker.

Here is the glider rocker. It used to be all dingy so I bleached it and made it white again. The cushions were originally blue, so I recovered them using the same fabric as on the changing pad cover. It’s a super soft pink flannel with tiny white polka dots.

Of course I had to show you another pic of the rosette lamp. I showed how to make it here.

The shelves were painted white with the background the same color as the walls. IMG_0554 I found the white baskets at Wal-mart after Easter. They were originally $5.00 each, but were on clearance for 75% off! Final price… $1.25 each! Score!!!!

I made a nightlight to match her lamp. I have a post coming on how I did this.  The cord you see is the lamp cord.
I had to make her a matching hairbow holder. This was done with a $0.25 wooden picture frame from Goodwill. I painted it with white gloss spray paint. The cheap stuff from Wal-mart. Added a bow to the corner, along with a few strips of wide pink satin ribbon and you have a bow holder. (Nothing tricky to adding the ribbon. I just cut strips long enough to reach down the frame and hot-glued them at the top and bottom.)
All the stuffed bunnies are either from my older daughter’s collection of stuffed animals or after Easter clearance sales.

I made the curtains using sheer silky white organza and added the pink silk sateen fabric to the bottom and for the tie back bow.

Of course I couldn’t resist making one of the rosette kissing balls. It just went with my theme!!!
There are a few more DIY items in this room…you’ll just have to come back to see more!
