Nursery Reveal!


This is my beloved room! I'm beyond proud of it and am so excited to spend time with our babe in here!! Our photographer mentioned bringing a wide angle lens and taking some pics of it for us when she comes to do newborn pictures, but I couldn't wait that long to share so please bear with me on the picture quality!

I've been following your blog for a while now but have never commented, but now I feel compelled to say that I am in love with your nursery! We have picked the same crib, and seeing it in action always makes me smile. :)

I love this nursery!!! I'm thinking of using these colors in mine. I also love the quilt. Would you be willing to make another one and sell it? Thanks!!!

nicole said...

Anonymous - Thanks so much for your sweet comment! Unfortunately I'm not comfortable enough with my sewing skills to offer them for money! The quilt has lots of mistakes and I would feel bad selling something like that. I encourage you to look on etsy and other sites where people sew for hire. Good luck!

Love your nursery! I'm doing a grey with pops o'color theme as well and yours looks great! (also fun to learn that you're a fellow knitty :))

Where did you find the ring for the mobile? So cute! Also how did you attach it to the ceiling?
