Nursery reveal: A shabby chic nursery fit for a princess

We found out we were expecting our miracle on March 24, 2015- one day before my husband's birthday, and five months after the loss of our precious second baby. I knew almost instantly that she was going to be a girl. At the end of June, we found out for sure that we were having another girl.

As much as I loved Emorie's pink and green Pottery Barn nursery, I wanted to take a different approach this time.

I knew I wanted to do a traditional nursery, something vintage and classic.  I loved the idea of a very girly, very shabby chic nursery, so I set out on Pinterest and Project Nursery to find some inspiration. Boy, did I ever find inspiration. I love how her nursery turned out- I think it's pretty close to perfect. 

The furniture is the exact same furniture we used in Emorie's nursery. This saved us a ton of money. We were also able to reuse crib sheets and changing table pad covers as well. 

The quilt was an Etsy purchase. I love how pretty and classic it is. I wanted something that didn't look too baby, so it would still be useful when she is three.  The wall art is made from fat quarters and 11X14 canvases.

The cornice shelves were a Target purchase as well. We already had the picture frame, and the vase and booties were a thrift store purchase. The card with the Scripture is an original creation. We bought the chair from Craigslist and the table, which I painted, is from Homegoods. The lamp and shade are a DIY, and the tabletop frame is from Swoozie's.

The vintage Hobnail mirror is an Ebay purchase and the picture frames are from Hobby Lobby.

The last thing we have to do is hang her crib mobile. I am loving the vintage feel of this room. It's so simple and feminine and I love looking at it. Can't wait til our sweet princess is here!
