I decided on a purple and brown theme for our little girl's nursery and went with a vague bunny/nature theme in the room.

I sewed the crib skirt and the curtains and my MIL made the crib canopy for me. I can't believe how much work the crib skirt was. I saw the three-tier ruffle style on Pinterest and loved it but I'm not sure I would have embarked on it if I knew it was going to take 3 nights to finish after an exhausting day pregnant chasing after a toddler. Yikes.

 

The felt board is one of my favourite parts of the room though she won't be playing with it any time soon. I bought way too much felt, I'm not sure what I am going to do with the rest. It was really fun to make though because I just freehanded the whole thing. The photos were all found online and printed and I got the unfinished wood frames from a yard sale. The letters for the name were bought at the dollar store but I painted them to match the fabric in the room.

 

We already had the chair but I bought a new foam cushion and made a reversible cover for it (the idea being that when I'm done with it in the nursery I can flip it to the underside fabric and put it in the rec room. The reverse side of the fabric came from Ikea and though its really funky the orange/grey didn't really go with my colours. ^.^ I didn't make the log pillow, I was thinking of making one but then I lucked out and found one at our local bargain shop for $14 and I know how much of a pain it is to make cylindrical pillows. I also love the bunny hat for the chair - I got that idea from Pinterest too. I stuffed the ears with polyester fill and a length of wire to give them a bit of shape.

 

I made this door stop to discourage my toddler from closing the door to her room. Of course that's not the problem at all - the problem is him opening the door it turns out lol. He just likes to pick up the bunny and move it around, oh well. I filled the bottom with rice to give it weight.



I found the driftwood for the clothes hangers at the beach and I attached them to the wall using hook and eye hinges. We used to have a closet in this room, but long before we thought about kids we had converted it into an office and removed the closet to make a walk-in off our bedroom which backs onto this room.

Oh darn. When they are little...just stick them in the bottom drawer of the dresser!  Grin They outgrow the other stuff too soon, anyway. Pad it with a blanket, and they are good to go. They will never remember the difference.  Roll Eyes But yours looks really cute. And I like your "closet" restyle. Very creative. And a nice room for baby.

I LOVE THIS ROOM!  I really like all the photos you posted of it, the obvious effort you put into it, it's not an "in your face" theme, and you also posted where you got the items and how you decorated them which can be helpful to people who want to try the same idea.

IMO, I think that "themed" baby nurseries are great!  I think it's calming for the baby and moms need something to do with that "nesting" instinct!   Grin  It's also an incentive to go into the room to care for the baby during those difficult first weeks!  Wink
