nursery reveal

I'm so excited to finally reveal Adeline's precious nursery that we have worked so hard on! It has been so fun to make-over this room from an office to her little corner of our home.  I've had a plan in my mind from the beginning, and it's funny to me to see it completed now and realize that I really didn't stray far from my original plans.  My main goal:  whimsical and girlie while being frugal and creative with some DIY.  Mission accomplished!

The details:

-The room started out as our office and Boone's room.  You can see images here.
-Size of room:  approximately 9.5' x 7.5' (teeny tiny space to work with)
-Room extras:  bonus area for storage behind door (see pic below); nice, large closet (see pic below)

The inspiration and journey to the complete project:

-Clearing out the room
-Some of my inspiration
-Finding our changing table/dresser
-Finding the material
-Finding the glider
-Sneak peeks
