Nursery progress: Cornice shelves

Hi, all! I hope your Wednesday is off to a great start. Here at Organized and Simplified, we are celebrating the nearly finished status of our daughter's nursery. Monday, we showed you her new nursery chair and some really cute art work we hung above her changing table. Today, we will show you how we decorated her cornice shelves and tall dresser.

Here is a run-down of our nursery to-do list: As you can see, the room is nearly completed.
Install closet organizer 
Organize closet and label bins 
Hang and put away clothing and nursery items 
Buy crib bedding 
Hang art work above changing table 
Decorate two lamps for nursery 
Hang curtain rod and curtain
Buy a nursery chair and ottoman
Hang cornice shelves 
Decorate cornice shelves 
Decorate dresser 
Find a rug for the nursery
Install new dresser drawer knobs and closet door knobs
Hang art work above the crib

We ordered these cornice ledge shelves from Target, and they were difficult to install. These are not the shelves that have a wooden bracket that you attach to the wall, and then hang the shelf on. These shelves have a keyhole bracket. I wasn't 100% pleased with them, but once we got them on the wall and decorated them, I was happier with them.

This photo here was my inspiration:

Here is how I styled them: 
The cream colored vase and small Mason jar were thrift store finds. The flowers were from Wal-Mart for $2 a stem, the frame is one we already had, and we already had the shoes. I purchased the "Isn't She Lovely" print from Etsy for $1.25, and the 1 Samuel 1:27 print is an original creation. 

Here is the top of her dresser. A photograph will be in the 8X10 frame, but I wanted to wait until she gets here for that. 

Stay tuned! Our next post will be the room reveal!
