Have you seen Baby Girl’s Nursery Reveal (Part 1) yet!? If not, be sure to START HERE!
Sometimes it’s all the little things that make the biggest difference in transforming a space! Here are some of the ‘little things’ in our Baby Girl’s Nursery that made a big difference! Don’t forget to check out the AWESOME giveaway and the name we choose for our Baby Girl below!
I knew I wanted a chandelier for her room to add that simple, but elegant touch to the space. I searched everywhere- stores, online, boutiques, but we kept coming back to a chandelier that we simply loved at Pottery Barn Kids. It was simple, but with adding the shades and ruffled cord cover, it became elegant.
We also purchased the purple lamp and lamp shade at Pottery Barn Kids as well. Several family and friends asked if I made the lamp shade, to which I respond ‘I wish!’ It’s gorgeous and while I’m creative I’m not that talented! I love that lamp shade and the fact that when you turn it on, the purple flowers glow a bit darker that the rest of the shade; it’s beautiful!
Finally, for lighting, my husband installed a Lutron Dimmer/Sensor switch for the room; you can find these online, or at your local Home Depot. The dimmer can be set brighter or darker and then when you enter the room, it immediately returns to the previous setting. The sensor made me nervous at first, thinking that I would wake her up if I walked in to check on her, but I love that I will be able to set it low and then it will only turn on to a dim light so I can see her but not wake her up. I love that the dimmer helps create such a warmth in the room!
The recliner chair we purchased from USA Baby, but we toiled with so many ideas- cloth or leather, glider or recliner, etc. But when it came down to it, we realized we needed a small-medium sized chair that was white or gray. When we saw this chair, my tech-savy husband fell in love with the sensors on the side that raise and lower the foot rest. My favorite part was that it was a faux leather that could easily be washed off with a damp rag! It was a perfect fit and our boys can be found sitting (or riding up and down) in it while they anxiously await the arrival of their sister!
We found the small end table at Target.com, and I love it’s simple clean look!
Rug (*NEW Since Part 1)
The rug we also found on Target.com and it’s purple two-toned shades fit perfectly and add just another touch of warmth to the room.
Diaper Pail (*NEW Since Part 1)
The diaper pail was highly recommended to us from the manager at USA Baby. We had previously used a Diaper Champ and it worked fine for the first few months with baby number one, but by the end of baby number two’s diaper days, the plastic had completely trapped the dirty diaper smells and we tried everything we could to improve the smell, but nothing worked! We are excited to try our new Diaper Dekor and have heard great things about it so far!
Here are a few of our other favorite sponsors for baby items found in the nursery:
Johnson & Johnson– for their baby oil, baby oil gel, and lotion
Boba Wraps – for their awesome wraps for baby wearing
Britax– NEW Convertible Car Seat
Pampers– Pampers Swaddlers Diapers
I was also beyond thrilled at the opportunity to choose a Petunia Pickle Bottom Diaper Bag to use with our baby girl! They have so many beautiful patterns and styles and it was near impossible to choose. However, I settled on the Boxy Backpack in Breakfast in Berkshire print. It is beautiful! I love so many things about it, including the easy to clean exterior, the fold out changing pad, the fact that I can use it as a shoulder bag or a backpack.
Check out this quick video to see all the awesome features of the boxy backpack!
Here’s the BEST PART…
Petunia Pickle Bottom wants to give one lucky Cheerios and Lattes reader their very own Weekender Bag in the PRINT of YOUR CHOICE!
Finally, the name we choose for our Baby Girl is:
We have loved the name Zoe for a girl for years, but combined it with Michelle, because of it’s meaning. Zoe means Life (spiritual), and Michelle means In the Image of God. Our prayer is that our little girl will have a life that reflects the image of God, but also that she would be a giver of life to those around her. So now, we wait with anticipation for Zoe Michelle to join our family!
