Chase’s Nursery–The Reveal

5.27.2011

It’s been a long time coming, but I finally have pictures of Chase’s nursery.  And, it’s completed just in time for him to get here.  Hopefully he will come sometime over the weekend.  If not, I’m definitely being induced on Wednesday.  I didn’t really mention it on the blog, but this pregnancy has definitely had it’s ups and downs.  We had two preterm labor scares back in January.  It all turned out okay, but it really threw us for a loop while it was happening.  Since January I’ve had more contractions than most women have while delivering 5 children.  The closer to his due date that we get the more contractions I have.  The doctors were sure he was going to come early, but he’s already decided to show everyone, especially me, whose boss.  Now he’s full-term and we can’t wait for him to get here so that we can see his sweet face.

Enough of the mushy stuff.  Onto his room and the details.  In case you just started reading my blog or just missed my original idea board for his nursery here it is.  I had to sacrifice a few of the design elements due to the price but I feel like overall I created the nursery that I had originally envisioned.

When I figured out that the West Elm rug I originally wanted was going to break our budget I opted for my own DIY verson.  For the ottoman, I reupholstered the infamous leopard-printed x-bench in a chevron print.

I originally purchased a vintage piece similar to the one on the inspiration board for his dresser/changing table.  Once we moved I decided that the vintage piece was going to look a lot better as a buffet in our new dining room, so I opted for the white Malm from Ikea.

I never intended to use the Serena & Lily glider that was on the inspiration board but I wanted to find one similar to have slipcovered.  After looking and looking on Craigslist I had almost given up on ever finding one that was the style I wanted and within my price range.  Then sweet Angela from The Painted House emailed me to let me know that she wanted to sell the glider she had used with all three of her children.  I was so excited, especially when I saw how pretty the form was.  It was just what I was looking for.  It’s also extremely comfy.  Here is the before shot.

I used a prewashed ivory linen for the slipcover so that I could easily throw it in the wash and clorox it.

This bird mobile was the very first thing that I bought for the nursery.  I actually bought it about 7 months before I was even pregnant.  It was on sale for $19.99 at Sundance.  I knew I would use it whether I had a girl or a boy.

The gallery wall consists of art from Etsy as well as 2 pieces that Billy made when he was a little boy.  The little painted swallow was gifted to me from a dear artist friend, and I actually won the abstract canvas during one of Angela’s giveaway about a year and a half ago.  That piece has been so many places in our home and it ended up working so perfectly on Chase’s gallery wall.

Here is one of my favorite accessories in his room.  My cousin gave me these adorable mugs that spell out his name.  I just love them.

Thanks to a suggestion from one of my awesome readers I was able to get the fabric that I really wanted for his crib skirt and pillow at an unbelievable deal on Mary Jo’s Cloth Store.  I couldn’t believe it, but on this site it was less expensive than my designer pricing.

And there you have it.  A full tour of Chase’s nursery.  I’ll probably be MIA for the next few weeks.  I’ll try to post pictures of Chase as soon as I can after he is born.  I’m sure I’ll have my hands full for those first few weeks though. 

I hope you all have a Happy and Fun-filled Memorial Day!

  11. So cheerful and beautiful, Cristi! You should be so proud of yourself for accomplishing all this with a late pregnancy move and so many contractions!!! Don't stand in the way of a determined design mama, that's for sure! Ha!

    Oh my goodness, I almost started crying seeing the picture of my first son's nursery...he turns 8 next month! Time flies. I wish you as many precious moments with Chase in that chair as I had with my three. So many heavenly moments. Okay, I'm really crying now.

    Here's to hoping you have yourself a baby in your arms by the end of the weekend! Thanks for the tour!!!

    1. Thanks! I used a linen that I purchased at Forsyth Fabrics in Atlanta. I don't recall the name of the color but the linen itself is called shannon linen. I washed it prior to having it made because I wanted the worn look.

  43. Cristi - I have been admiring this nursery for so long and I'm finally getting to decorate my own! I have a very practical question - does the changing mat on the malm dresser work or did you have to switch to something that secures down to the dresser? Before I copy your design ;-) I wanted to see if you made any adjustments for practicality. Thanks!

  44. Hello! I absolutely love the design of this nursery and had been admiring it for many months before finding out that we are expecting our second. I was wondering if you could tell me what color paint (if different from the Rainwashed on the walls) you used on the ceiling?

    ReplyDelete
  45. Hi, I adore the blanket on the rocking chair with the geometric pattern, where did you find this fabric, I have searched the internet and local stores! Thanks!
