Girls Rooms

I was so excited to be able to decorate Jolie's nursery.  With Brynn we were in such transiton, we had just moved into a town house the week she was born, while we continued our home search.  Everything was so chaotic and I never got the opportunity to take my time and enjoy decorating a little girl nursery.  It wasn't until we got into our new house and Brynn was around 8 months that I finally was able to finish her room.  In sitting down to do a post about Jolie's nursery I realized that I don't think I ever posted pictures of Brynn's.  Her nursery was such a labor of love and I never want to forget it.  So first pictures of Brynn's room.

I always knew I wanted a white wrought iron crib.  I just love how different, feminine and vintage looking they are.  I always had an all white vision for her room and so I went with all white bedding, canopy, drapes, and furniture.  My mom and I had stenciled and painted this wall together, took us like a week, but I just love it.   Steve built the cornaces for the canopy and window treatments and my mom and I sewed her curtains.

This little wooden vanity was my moms when she was little, then mine and now Brynns.  It was in pretty rough shape, so Steve sanded it down, repainted it and brought it back to life.

I love how feminine and sweet her nursery was.  It was always my favorite room in the house.

Fast forward two years and it was time to decorate another little girl nursery for our sweet Jolie.  For her room I went in a whole different direction.  Pink, gold and mint are her colors and I was pretty surprised by how much pink ended up being in this room.  We transferred Brynn's crib over to the nursery, and reused her bumper, dyed the crib skirt pink, and I bought a new crib sheet that incorporated all the colors.

We started with the dresser, which was my moms.  Steve sanded it down and painted it this pretty mint color.  I pretty much pulled the rest of my inspiration for the crib sheet.

I had seen these prints above the dresser and fell in love with them, but not the price tag.  I decided to DIY them and change the colors to match the room and I'm pretty pleased with how they turned out.

This rug was originally in Brynn's room, until I changed hers out for the one she has now.  It ended up working perfectly in here.  Steve's dad pitched in to buy us this beautiful rocking chair.  I had never ended up buying one with Brynn and always really regretted it, especially when my back was burning from all that rocking and swaying standing up in the middle of the night.

I always loved Brynn's big "B" above her crib and knew I wanted Jolie's initial above hers as well.  After looking through pinterest I fell in love with this idea and was pretty pleased with how this DIY project turned out.

Two totally different rooms, but equally as sweet.  They are definitely the prettiest rooms in my house, and they were definitely the most fun to decorate.
