My #NurseryTale – Adeline’s Nursery Reveal

This post is part of Wayfair’s #NurseryTale campaign; Find more great nursery pieces at wayfair.com.

As promised, I’m finally sharing Adeline’s completed nursery! At least, I think it’s completed. It kind of all, just, came together, and I am so excited with how it turned out. If you remember back in May, I posted an inspiration board for the nursery, and I think for the most part I stayed within the neutral/light pink color scheme.

For Wayfair’s #NurseryTale campaign, we were tasked with sharing the story behind a few of our nursery pieces, and why we chose them. I have quite a few sentimental pieces in Adeline’s future bedroom, and all of them combined definitely make the room even more special!

neutral and pink nursery

Let’s get started. And as a side-note, the lighting in here at night is terrible, so it’s super harsh in these photos! Everything is a lot softer looking in person and during the day.

First up, her crib! Every little girl needs a perfectly girly crib where she can catch up on her beauty sleep. I decided on the classic DaVinci Jenny Lind 3-in-1 Convertible crib, which my in-laws ordered for us from wayfair.com! It was such a huge blessing, and I know Adam and his dad had a blast putting it together.

Next, the little pink side table was my mother-in-laws, but it was originally oak. I had Adam spray paint it with a light pink to match the other pinks in the room. It has little rose details along the edge, and makes the perfect accent piece.

Next up, these two baby quilts. The blue one was my dad and his brother’s baby blanket, and the pink one was my grandfather’s baby blanket. When my grandmother first gave them to me I was iffy on if I would use them in the nursery, but after giving them a good wash and knowing how special it is to even have them, I knew they had to at least make an appearance! I can’t wait to get pictures of Adeline laying on them!

Speaking of quilts, this hot pink quilt was the quilt my grandmother used on her bed in college! When she gave it to me, I remember secretly hoping I had a girl one day so that I could actually use it! We also used it in a few of our maternity photos.

And that sad looking Eeyore stuffed animal? That was one of my most beloved stuffed animals when I was little. He went with me everywhere!

Next, the changing table. Ron Swanson did it again, and I love how it turned out. Adam is such a talented wood worker, and I think it’s so sweet that he was able to contribute something to his daughter’s room. He spray painted it a vintage white, and once we’re done using it as a changing table, we should still be able to use it as a bookshelf or simple table in her room.

And lastly, her armoire. Or, my armoire. This oversized dresser was in my bedroom growing up, and I never imagined my own little girl using it one day! It has held many a years worth of clothes, and its doors have seen many a boy-band magazine clippings. It’s such a high quality piece of furniture and I know it will last Adeline as long as it lasted me!

And in case you were concerned about girlfriend lacking in the bow department, I think she will be a-ok. I hated bows and really, anything girly when I was little, so I’m interested to see what Adeline prefers! I’m thinking she’ll be as girly as I let her be, since she won’t have an older brother to keep up with!

At 35.5 weeks pregnant now, I am starting to really feel like this whole baby thing is going to happen. Now that her room is ready, I’m feeling the itch to get the car seat installed, pack our hospital bags, and make our final to-do lists. I can’t WAIT for her to be here, and it blows my mind that we’ll be bringing her home so soon! AAAHHH!

How would you decorate your nursery? Are you a neutral fan? Are you very sentimental or more of a “been there done that” type?

    I LOVE neutrals – they’re classic and timeless. I think your nursery is beautiful and I just love the name you’ve chosen. Every time you write about your bundle of love, and I read the post, I love the name Adeline more and more! And I’m definitively sentimental, I hate clutter and am pretty quick to toss things, but I always save old ticket stubs and mementos.

      Thanks Leslee!! I had never heard the name Adeline until my husband suggested it several months ago, and I just love it too 🙂 I’m the same way, I love saving those sentimental little things too, just not clutter!

    Beautiful nursery! I love how many things have special meaning for you.
    Random thought/potential advice on girls and hair bows – I was very anti headband/hairbow when my daughter (now 22 mo) was an baby, but I think it’s a good idea to get her used to having things in her hair and having her hair “done” from an early age. It’s been a struggle getting my daughter used to wearing hair clips now that is hair is long enough to need them.

      Thanks Katie! You know I love neutrals, and I think it turned out to be a good mix! Maybe not the brightest or girliest room ever, but I think it’s calming and nothing too wild!
