Mia's nursery reveal

Mia is just over 21 months old and I finally completed her room... go me! ha ha! We are renting so I kept her room very simple, but I kind of love it this way and am so glad it's done! (But you can't imagine how excited I am for the day that we buy a home and I can paint, vinyl and go all out with decorating her room!!) The best part? Mia loves her room and it makes my heart so happy when she points at the pictures and picks out "dada!" and "babies!", shows me her teddy bear and "doggie!" in her bed, climbs in the rocking chair and reads a book or rocks herself, pulls open her drawers and plays dress up, and points at the flowers and butterflies asking, "whas daaaaat?"
*Please note- I am not a photographer so these pictures are far from good and the lighting is horrible. Forgive me :)
The air conditioning kept flipping the flowers/butterflies around, but they look adorable when they are hanging correctly!
My parents surprised us with this rocking chair when we brought Mia home from the hospital and we love it! It helps brighten the room since the other furniture is the dark cherry red. My friend, Kortney, helped me sew these cushions (she sewed, I watched) and I love the fabric! It was a bummer that we didn't have enough (bought the last of it) to have the lines vertical, but I still love them!
I just realized I didn't take god photos of her crib. The bumper and skirt are creme and I change the color of her sheets from pink to yellow to purple to green to blue :)
The coloring in this photo is so bad BUT my mom made this mobile and it is my favorite thing in the nursery... besides the little girl staring up at it ;)
*One last note- as I said before, we are in a rental. They didn't patch and paint the walls before we moved in, so the random, weird spots in the wall aren't because of us! Once again, I can't wait to buy a home, ha ha!

I love how you have a simple rocker in the room. Many rockers nowadays are expansive and big, yours fits right in!

it's PERFECT. We move every3-4 years, so we're dying to one day own a home. In fact were moving out of our rental 2 mos after the second babe is born so I'm torn over decorating.

You did a nice job decorating! That mobile is beautiful too, your mom is very talented. My older sister has two little girls and I can just imagine what their rooms will like when they buy a house. Love that last picture too, so precious. I hope that you are having a great week too! :-)

Oh I love these so much!! We're renting too so I know exactly what you mean. I'm in the process of redoing her room since she will soon be sharing with her little sister :)

Kimberly said...

LOVE!! Axel is 20 months, does that mean I have one more month before I have to be done with his nursery??? ;) He'll be in that room until he's three so I still have a little time to fix it up.
