Emerson's Room









This week over at Kelly's Korner she is featuring children's rooms! I love Emerson's room and I spent a lot of time thinking about it and sitting in it before she was born just imagining what life would be like once she arrived. Before it was transformed into the nursery it was a guest room with furniture I had bought in high school and pale bedding I had purchased eons ago. This is a picture of it before...




Before I even found out I was pregnant, I was in love with the Penelope bedding from Pottery Barn and when we finally confirmed it was a girl, it was ready, set, go!! I love Pottery Barn but not the prices so my husband built me the changing table that I was lusting over for around $200...much better than the $2500 price tag in the catalog!!!




We took an existing dresser and painted it white and added crystal knobs and then my husband build the top to match the crib that I bought at a boutique. I love my crib but unfortunately the bumper pad doesn't fit it correctly and you couldn't put a mobile or the little rainforest player due to the thickness of the sides.




My friend Pam made these cute little birds for one of my baby showers and I LOVE them!!



I found these little fairies and tulip wall decals at Pottery Barn and thought they looked really cute!






This bookcase system was bought online at JCPenney and all the baskets were purchased from Michael's and I made the basket liners to match the bedding!!! The chair was purchased from Walmart and is a rocker and I think with shipping I paid $200.00. The ginormous rug is a Pottery Barn rug that I bought off Ebay for around $200 delivered.




I love her little room and will be very sad when she grows up and doesn't like the little girl look! Hope you enjoyed the tour!!!

I don't know about Emme growing up and not liking the 'little girl look'. I am a grown woman and her room is "way prettier" than mine... On second thought, if Emme does grow tired of her surroundings I would be happy to take the items of your hands and then do some Redecorating myself! LOL
P.S. It really is a Fantastical Room! Love the fairies, just one of my favs.

Oh I just LOVE her room! It's so girly and sweet, and I love the color palette you used. And it is SO funny you commented on my son's name, because Emerson is the girl name we want if we are ever blessed with a girl! It goes great with Emanuel. :) She's a total cutie!

It looks like someone loves Pottery Barn Kids just as much as me. :) I love your crib bedding with the white furniture.

Your daughter's room looks so cozy.
