It’s nursery reveal day. It’s embarrassing how long it took me to write this post. We had the nursery done by Thanksgiving, but time just slipped away. I’ll blame the tryptophan.
My client was very easy to work with on this project. She had amazing taste. Her communication was clear; she either kicked, or she didn’t. Evelyn Faye is extremely pleased with the results.
We’ve come a long way from when this room was the old-furniture-graveyard/Aaron’s office.
Like I mentioned in the Nesting Doll Mobile post, if you reach out to Etsy shop owners, they are often willing to do custom jobs for you. I had this shop owner customize this print with a purple background special for the nursery.
The adorable crocheted hedge hog pillow was made by Bethany of The Sepia Puppy. And there’s Buster’s stuffed doppleganger.
This matryoshka set was given to me by a close friend. It came from Ukraine and belonged to her grandmother whose name was also Evelyn.
My sister Gina gave me Pilot Barbie for Christmas the year I got my pilot’s licence. I never knew what to do with it, until I had a nursery to decorate. Now it belongs to Evelyn to remind her to always follow her dreams no matter how many people doubt you.
Homegirl has more clothes than I do.
I mentioned in the Gallery Wall post that I was going to make some changes to it.
I added this nesting doll wood cutout art made by Beth of Sawdust and Embryos. There is nothing she can’t do with a scroll saw.
It looks perfect in the mix of art! (Sources at the bottom of the post)
This quilt was made by Kim from Newly Woodwards. Her quilting skillz run so deep.
It looks so beautiful on the back of the Wingback Rocker.
Several people have asked me how the DIY Wingback Rocker has held up since July. It is perfect. I’ve never loved a piece of furniture more. It rocks perfectly. It is strong and sturdy. It is extremely comfortable. It’s easy to get in and out of. It is perfect for nursing. It works wonders when I need Evelyn to fall asleep. I couldn’t be happier. It’s calling in life was for the middle of the night.
I love Evelyn’s nursery. It is the best room in the house. I chose purple and gold because those colors symbolize royalty. I want her to always remember she is the daughter of a King.
