Ella's Nursery

Welcome to Ella's Nursery.

My initial concept for the room was just pink, grey, and white but as I started collecting things for the room and building the room up in my head it basically became pink and white.  Like I said in a previous post, I never thought I would do such a girly room, but once we found out she was a girl...I was all about PINK!  Now, I do still have some grey accents.  Actually, the walls are a very very light grey but I pull in the grey with steel accents that you'll find in the wall collage.  Basically, I'm in love with her room....but not as in love with it as I am my precious baby girl.  

There are still a few things I want to tweak.  I don't love all the frames I have for the wall collage...I'm hoping to stumble on something at HomeGoods or Hobby Lobby someday that will be perfect, but until then it will have to do the way it is.

Here it is, please enjoy!

the reading nook

lots of fun books to read

Ikea chair that I turned into a rocker/glider (more on this is a later post)

the perfect spot to read to ella

Ella letters I made for above the book wall

and here is the favorite.

Fell in love with the spindle style crib.  It's a bit shabby chic.

I found the most amazing pink fabric to make bows for the crib with.  

Her sparkly mobile which I got the idea from Pinterest, of course.

don't you just love it?!

A picture from her angle.

The changing table.  

the wall collage.

I love this antique frame I found...then decided to print a canvas for inside of it....I love it!

Here are SOME of her bows/flowers which I clipped in this frame I spray painted from goodwill.  Also, here is that headband storage project I worked on in a previous post.

Here is the dresser I refinished....which I also love!  It turned out great in the room!

blankets and stuffed animals

I bought the big frame from Ikea and panted it pink (thanks Whitney)

These are from the shower...didn't want to throw these away.  They work perfect in her room!
her amazing rug...which I love as a backdrop for serves for multiple purposes, right?! :)

So that's her nursery.  I may make some small changes here or there...if so I'll be sure to post.  Also, I may do a few posts of how I did some of the projects or I can let people know where I got things if they're interested.  

see...the rug, perfect back drop!  Also, couldn't do a blog post without an adorable pic of my little girl!  :)


  1. your nursery. It's been very inspirational for my daughter as she's expecting their 1st child....a GIRL!

    By chance, do you know/remember where you purchased the adorable wire basket that holds the blankets and toys?

    1. Thank you so much! :) I'm so happy you love Ella's Nursery! We have been in the middle of a huge move and I'm DYING to have her nursery back! Congrats to you and your daughter!

      Yes, I bought the wire baskets for the blankets and toys at HomeGoods. If you don't have one of those near you TJMAXX may have them, too!

  2. Hello, I was wondering what you used for the mobile and the top round part of the canopy?

    1. I used a wire wreath starter from the craft store for the mobile. It comes green but I painted it white. You can find them for sure at Michaels, Hobby Lobby, possibly even Wal Mart. The Canopy was from Ikea, all parts of it. I'm pretty sure they still have this same one. :)

    2. I also used fish line and found crystals at the craft store that had holes going through them (beads) and just tied nots where I wanted the crystals to stay. Hope that helps.

  3. Just seeing this beautiful room! Where did you purchase the shag rug?
