Nashville Newborn Photographer | Eva’s Nursery

Way before we knew our baby was a girl, I started dreaming of how we could decorate a nursery. I am an introvert and I love making our home cozy since we are here a lot! (I am perfectly content to spend an entire weekend at home with Cade! That’s just who I am! =)

When we found out we were having a girl, I began my search for the perfect bedding. I never found something that I absolutely loved so I decided to look at fabrics instead and make my own bedding. This process took weeks. I literally looked through thousands (no joke!) of fabric swatches online. I finally narrowed it down to 3 different sets and then we picked this one from spoonflower. Based on those colors and the general patterns we began designing the rest of the nursery. I am delighted to show you our end result (which literally was completed this week)!

Since I spent hours researching each of the pieces in our nursery (and a lot of times I got ideas from others) I thought I’d share our list:

  • Crib – Babyletto (a gift from Cade’s parents)
  • Rocking chair – from Pottery Barn but I got it on craigslist. The previous owners had always kept a cover over it so the cream fabric was practically new! We took the rocking feet off and stained them an espresso color to match the crib.
  • Side table: from the flea market. I painted it.
  • Dresser/changing table – also a craiglist purchase. This thing took weeks to sand, stain and refinish but we are super happy with the result.
  • Expedit Bookcase – from Ikea
  • Shag rug – Walmart. This thing is awesome and definitely the best “new” value for the cost.

If I ever need a new career I think I’ll become a nursery designer. I had SO much fun!! =)
