CCC Nursery | Update

I figured it was about time for a little nursery update! If you’ve missed previous post about the nursery click here to catch up! The Mr. & I did a lot of work and organizing over the holidays. We still have a ways to go, but it’s definitely looking more put together πŸ™‚ There are still some things on the shopping list (changing pad, crib mattress, floor lamp…to name a few). We also need to add some more playful touches so it looks less like an adult’s room and more like a baby’s room.
The chaise will be perfect for napping & sleeping during those late night feedings. The white peacock painting has found the perfect home in this corner (Thanks again Terri!!!)
After a couple of mishaps, we finally found the perfect dresser for the room. Thank you Craigslist! I absolutely adore it. The grain in the antique oak is just so gorgeous, they really don’t make ’em like they used too. And the wavy front adds just the right amount of “girlieness” πŸ™‚ It will double as a changing table once we get a changing pad for the top.
The unicorn poster was mine when I was a little girl. My Mom gave it to me for my 10th birthday and now our little girl gets to enjoy it too! It still needs to be hung…
Oh and how do you guys like the custom trophy cup? Most babies get a silver sippee cup or a spoon, mine gets a silver horse trophy cup πŸ˜‰
This side of the room has become a catch all for now πŸ˜‰ I finally decided on this shelf is from Target. I’m going to be lining the back panel with fabric, but haven’t decided which fabric to use yet…oh and I still want to get some storage bins or baskets for the bottom shelf. Don’t you just love the vintage wool coat? I found it at a vintage store for $19. It’s from the 50’s and in perfect condition. The collar and cuffs are suede! I LOVE it.
The crib makes a great storage area πŸ˜‰ Oh and the bedding should be coming in later this week, can’t wait! Of course we’re still needing the mattress, lol.
This faux bamboo end table was a steal for only $30 at a sample sale. It was halfway painted white when I bought it. The Mr. did a great job painting it a glossy black. Sooo much better.
A handy iPod dock for some soothing music for baby. And a cute peacock blue tealight holder also a gift from Terri @ La Dolfina!
I bought the chandelier from Pottery Barn Teen and it was exactly what I was searching for. It was a breeze to install and adds the perfect amount of sparkle to the room with out being too stuffy.
I couldn’t resist this little guy when I saw him on Gilt…He’s the perfect mini-version of Cristof! He has little wheels in his hooves and makes a cute (and surprisingly not annoying) neighing sound when you squeeze his ear.

  1. Great job with the nursery! I have a highboy almost exactly like the chest you found, and I love it! I'm sure that thing will last you forever!

  2. Lovely! I adore baby rooms that aren't baby, so … thank you! Love all the black and white – so chic.

  3. WOW!!! What a beautiful nursery!! You've done a fabulous job, and definitely created a room your daughter will be able to enjoy for years. I can't wait to see what "playful" nursery-ish touches you add, I'm sure they will be fab!

  4. I love it! So classy- Has a real boutique feel -but also is still a little ones room. Def inspiration for "someday" for me.

  5. Such a beautiful room for a lucky little girl! β™₯

    That dresser is an amazing find! I'm drooling! Thanks for sharing!

  6. I have that exact same dresser (different pulls). It was my aunt's and it's gone through many paintings, stainings and strippings. May I recommend you add clear glass pulls to it though?

  7. It is beautiful!

    I'm curious, though, with a selfish question! The chandelier is all sold out at PB Teen. Did you happen to see anything similar anywhere else?

  8. Haven't decided what kind of handles I'm going to put on yet, we'll see…thanks for the input πŸ™‚

  9. Thanks for all the compliments!!! Sounds like you all love the dresser just as much as I do! πŸ˜‰ xoxox

  10. Reichel I love your touches so far. I can't wait to see the bedding. The peacock picture is stunning and so unique!! Isn't is fun doing a nursery? That dresser will go with you throughout the years, it is a classic piece that can go in any room. Great purchase on your part, Kathysue

  11. I can't believe you got that chandelier at Pottery Barn. And that dresser is gorgeous, I haven't seen that type of grain around.

  12. Great Blog…. for the baby toddler safety ( and believe me they walk quickly) bolt the target 5 piece shelf to the wall so it is not something to fall on that precious babe.

  13. Beautiful! Can't wait to see the bedding!
    Does your crib have a drop side or fixed rail? Or is there something you were able to do to secure a drop side? I'm having a crib dilemma myself. Thanks!

  14. Oh I soooo love how your nursery is looking so far. You've done a great job! I really enjoyed the pictures and reading your comments about where everything came from- it feels so cozy and authentic! I love that you collected things from so many different places. Can't wait to see the rest of the little details! πŸ™‚

  15. Hi! I'm a recent follower of your blog and I LOVE IT! Thanks!

    I actually really like your table top lamps and was wondering where you purchased them?

    Thanks!

  16. Thanks Ashley πŸ™‚ Wait until you see pictures of the baby shower I'm having…lol. You'll love it.

  17. Thanks for the tip, we plan on doing that, but I want to finish the fabric backdrop on it first.

  18. oh i just love everything about it- from the striped rug to the rocking horse. it's beautiful!

  19. The room is adorable. My children are grown now but I've given this idea to some of my "new young moms". Line the drawers of the dresser with the wrapping paper from your showers. My girls always loved looking at the paper as they got older, recognizing it from the shower photos of me opening the gift.

  20. I am due with my second child in 2weeks and literally bought the same tiger oak dresser (from craigslist) on new years eve! When I saw your post I couldn't believe it! I'm wondering if you have any cleaning suggestions. Mine is in pretty good shape and I definitely won't be stripping it at this point. I am going to use a little magic eraser for minor scratches but would love a rec for making it fresh and shiny.
    Thanks! Emily

  21. For right now the room is for me πŸ˜‰ When she's older and wants pink stuff we can add it then!

  22. What a coincidence! You have great taste πŸ˜‰ Maybe murphy's oil soap? Mine came in pretty good shape so I didn't have to do much.

  23. It's actually a molding hook that you hook on the molding at the top of the wall. Then I just hung it from a ribbon πŸ™‚ It's great, no holes in your wall and you can reposition it at any time!

  24. A nursery any baby would love! I like baby's rooms that don't look like a baby… I do have one question though. You didn't mention where the milkglass (looking?) lamp came from. I love it!

  25. The Junior Classics!!! I have those books! They were mine as a child, and I just packed them up yesterday (we're hoping to move soon) and was thinking that at the new house, we need to put them where the boys will be encouraged to read from them more. It's so heartwarming to see something you love pop up in someone else's space, isn't it?

    The nursery looks beautiful.

  26. I love love love the nursery! I have a very similar dresser (bought it for $5 at a garage sale; it was painted green at the time!) that I just moved into our guest room and have been looking for white lamps to blend with it. Where did you find your lamp?

  27. I loved them when I was younger too! Had to have them in the nursery for lil' Baby B to enjoy too! πŸ˜‰ Thanks Aimee!

  28. I just found your blog and immediately noticed The Junior Classics collection as well!Β  They are sitting in a box on my hearth; my mom finally remembered to send them to me. I always thought when I was tiny that they would be the things I would want to save from our house if there were ever a fire. And I had the most amazing experience with them – they were shelved on the bottom shelf of a bookcase, and I was never directed, just left to discover them on my own. They have seriously informed my life. You have made my day – I agree that it's very heartwarming to see something so dear to me show up in such a beautiful space! It seems like you may have used their colors as your inspiration for the nursery…Thank you!
