Her room makes me happy

Lets just start this post by reminding everyone how much this nursery stressed me out in the beginning of my pregnancy. Overwhelming doesn't even begin to explain how I was feeling.

Originally, I wanted to do Black, Cream, and a pastel-ish Peachy Pink. I wanted it to be more of a 'grown up room' with bold stripes and a feminine touch with pink. I found everything that I wanted and had the most *perfect* Pinterest board with all the items I wanted to replicate. Then, after talking with Ammon, we sort of decided that he didn't love the black idea. I was pretty disappointed but wanted us both to be happy with the room! So, I went back to the drawing board. Eventually I decided on a pallet of Navy, Pink, Mint, and Metallic Gold. Then, as the process moved forward, somehow gray got thrown in the mix as well.

I have been buying things here and there for about 9 months now, and to see how it all came together makes me so happy. I pretty much got EVERYTHING (almost) at a discount or on sale somehow. *Winning*. This room is pretty small so taking pictures of it is difficult.. and let's be honest.. i am no professional photographer. There are a few projects I still need to finish like sewing the trim on one of the curtains.. but i am waiting for the pom pom's to come in the mail. Other than that... We are ready! We are pretty much in love with how the room turned out.. I surprised Ammon one day when he came home by having the room all put together and I will never forget his sweet reaction! We  CAN'T EVEN WAIT for baby to get here and claim her room!

  1. I love it all! It looks so put together! I'm doing gold too, but with a boho twist. Can't wait for your little girl to get here!

  2. We love how it turned out. This lil girl will be the crowning jewel in this room. I love how you designed it so that both of you "love" it and I love that the day it was finished Ammon said he sat in there looking at it for like a couple of hours. You two are so perfect together and this family you have established will be such a gift and a blessing!! Can't wait to have her in her parents arms!!!

  3. look so great!!!! that's one lucky little girl.
