Ella’s Nursery


Around this same time last year I was on the path to creating the perfect nursery for baby #2. When we had our first born (owen) we didn’t have a huge selection of items to choose from. We lived in a teeny tiny community and we had a lower budget. Back then to us it didn’t matter if it matched or not it worked.

I did know that this time around I was going to do it a little bigger and better. My colours I planned for were white, gold and of course pink! I added new, DIY and vintage. The crib was bought brand new. The dresser/change table was a bit of a DIY. I found it in great condition at a local thrift store for $50, which I thought was a steal. We spent a couple of nights sanding, priming, painting and sealing. Well worth the work!

The wooden bookshelf was given to me as a shower gift from my cousin who made it. Worth checking out her stuff by the way….


The “nic nacs” and small items I put together were a mix of new and old. Frames I found at local thrift stores and re-painted them. Vintage Peter Rabbit books are so pretty put together. Tea cup candles which were done by moi,  with some left over candle wax. Paper decorations also done by myself on a rainy day!

In the end I was always taking things out and bringing new things in. Constantly moving things around and rearranging. Until one day I forced myself to stop, and I’m happy I did. I’m thrilled with the way it looks overtime I enter the room!
