lavender and gray nursery decor
Shreya’s little sister’s nursery was painted a pretty lavender. It was decided that the decor would be lavender and gray like her baby shower. Beth gave me free rein to decorate however I wanted.

I used some of the decorations from the lavender and gray baby shower. Using 3M velcro hangers, I hung the lavender, gray and white paper pompoms and lanterns from the ceiling. At first, we were going to hang them over the crib as a mobile. But then, afraid they might fall into the crib, we decided to hang them from the ceiling in the corner.

I hung the fabric banner I created from leftover quilt scraps as a window valance. It had originally been hung in front of the baby shower table.

I made a hairbow holder, using a lightweight board covered in quilt batting and lavender fabric. Then I stretched coordinating ribbons horizontally and stapled to the board in back. Below the hairbow holder, I hung a board I created with old glass doorknobs as hooks, to hang dresses and elastic headbands. I printed the graphic and decoupaged it onto the board and then lightly sanded to distress the board.

Shreya helped me decorate the ABC print I designed and printed off the computer, with silver glitter to accent the I (heart) U. So I had her sign her name in the corner.

I created a little gallery over the dresser with a white shelf, some lavender nursery prints from Etsy, and a large wooden initial M. I embroidered the birth sampler in a hoop. Yep, the tiny fabric banners were from the baby shower cake. The baby shoes are Beth’s from when she was a baby. I planned to set a framed print of the girls on top of the shelf. Not showing the dresser because it still needed to be painted or upgraded somehow.

Finally, I sewed a matching ruffled lavender cushion set for the rocking chair. It was the rocker I rocked Beth in when she was a baby. It was painted white to coordinate with the nursery. Oh, I did make some cute lavender butterfly closet clothing dividers too. I’m still working on other touches for the nursery – which I’ll post photos of later.
