Pink Crib room tour...

Finally finished E's sweet toddler room.  So far she seems to love it and keeps pointing to all the pictures of her as a new baby and saying "Pretty baby".

E's chalkboard table.  Usually filled with lots of scribbles.  The table and chairs were already white.  I just added a couple of coats of black chalkboard paint on the tabletop and painted the chairs hot pink. 


The crib that I spray painted pink.  I primed it really well first with some Valspar bonding primer, followed with like 8 cans of pink satin spray paint and then some Polycrylic to finish it off.  It's been like that for 5 months and so far it's held up great.


The frames are all various old ones we had all over the house.  I just painted them with a sample can from Valspar of a color called pink taffy.  Love the pale pink so much that I'm going to use it again on her play kitchen.  The "You are beautiful inside and out" print is from this etsy shop:  You are beautiful shop


 The alphabet print is the pastel one from here:  Alphabet print shop


Owl print was from Target.  The letter is from a craft store and I covered it in Basic grey paper.  The little bird saying I saw somewhere online and loved it.  Couldn't find a seller or source so I just made a similar one on the computer and mounted it on a canvas that I had painted hot pink.  This stuff hangs above her bed so I didn't want anything heavy that could fall on her.


E's little dress up area.  Also her baptism gown.  She loves the tutu and boa.  The tutu/pettiskirt I bought from here:  http://www.etsy.com/shop/chicbabyrose?ref=seller_info.  It's the newborn one and still fits her and she is turning two.  It has a little adjustable elastic inside the waistband.   


The mirror is an old one I painted the same hot pink as the chairs for the chalkboard table.  The white puffs are from Martha Stewart.  I just used them as a template and made my own brightly colored ones from regular tissue paper.  The rocking chair is from Japan.  LOVE it.  It's perfect for my 4'10" frame.  I can actually reach the floor while rocking my baby!


I made the bedskirt myself out of a cheap Walmart sheet and the pretty quilt on the bed a friend made.


 Lamp is from Target.  Bookshelves we bought in Japan but you could get similar ones at Ikea.


E's Kokeshi doll collection.  Since she was born in Japan I wanted to have some little reminders in her room.


Old fake antique dresser that we got in Japan.  It used to be in our entry way and was originally a cherry color.  I painted it white and added the little glass knobs. This only holds diapers.  Her room has a big closet so her clothes are in there.


Curtains I made myself out of Alexander Henry Juicy jungle fabric.  Love the fabric.  I have extra and I think I'll make a duvet for when she gets a big girl bed.  I added the ruffle myself with some of same hot pink I used for the crib skirt.


The walls are painted "Robins nest" by Benjamin Moore.  I don't have one near me so I had them mix it at Lowe's.

Hope you enjoyed the tour!  So glad to have that project finished but secretly excited for when E gets a big girl bed and I can redecorate!
