Thought I'd share some photos of the progress so far on Liliana's nursery. The room is really small (about 1/3 the size of DD's) so I'm trying to keep it simple and light, a challenge since I picked very dark furniture and chocolate brown as one of my colors.

The artwork isn't hung yet since I'm not sure if the crib will be centered or moved over to one side. Also not sure on the placement of the glider and book shelf, or if the bench (with new fabric & a child safe hinge) & side table will stay... all the above will depend on the dresser once it arrives (it will go on the wall opposite the crib). I have pink with brown polkadot custom covers being made for the glider & ottoman (which I still have to get out of the attic) and I'm planning to paint the glider brown but might leave it white (not sure yet). Also a close up of her mobile with the bird I crocheted and attached to it and the little tree I crocheted for her (and a bunny I needle felted). I have some other artwork in mind for the room too that I'll be making and still have to get the lamp shade and find a floor lamp that I like.









Thanks for looking!

Here are the photos of DD's old nursery at our old house, my design style has changed some eh? LOL

So cute! You did a great job on the little tree, bird, and bunny

ETA: I'd leave the glider white. It doesn't look out of place in the room by not being brown like the rest of the furniture. We have dark wood furniture in our nursery (crib, dresser, bookcase, and full size antique wardrobe) and a white rocking chair. If you wanted to tie in some of the brown, you could always try stenciling a design similar to the artwork on the top of the glider. Otherwise, it looks great with just a brown pillow sitting in it.

Thank you everyone! I'm leaning toward leaving the glider (just since its easier not to have to paint it) but will withhold judgement until the cushions are done, they are pink with brown polkadots so that likely might be enough to really tie it all in and maybe keep the brown pillow (after embellishing it with a birdie or two of course). It's so different from DD's years ago (will find those photos today and post) but I'm really liking it so far. I'm planning to try and make these two items to put in there too: Custom Made LOVE BIRDS Bannerama Wallart Banner by giftsdefine (I already have the same bird cookie cutter to trace) and My TREE STORY Create your own Personalized Custom by giftsdefine both of which I LOVE but are out of my budget unless I try to make my own. I also have wooden letters to spell out her name that I need to paint/embellish. There hasn't been to much DD can help with yet, she was disinterested at first (possibly a bit jealous) but was gushing over "how cute it is mommy" last night, she likes helping me pick out outfits for Lily.

I love it! I would also leave it white, simply because it helps brighten the room a bit with all the other dark furniture pieces (I'm a brown lover, so I LOVE your color choice!).

Also, you must live in a ginormous house, because that bedroom looks as large as my and DH's bedroom, or our nursey, too. Both the rooms in our little house are about the same size. But I like small! Whenever we buy our own home, I want something like a small log cabin!

Thanks Krissy! The house is about 1800sq ft but DD's room is 16'x21' so it's HUGE, makes the nursery seem tiny by comparison (its 12'x.. not sure maybe 12' its close to a square)

Thanks Amanda, yes I had painted all the murals... everyone was shocked when I painted over all of it for her 2nd b'day and made it all soft pink. Still can't believe I had put so much work into it, and she never spent a single night in there LOL (she coslept with us). Her room in this house just has the soft pink walls but I did glaze them with an irredescent glaze and added glitter so they sparkle when the light hits them.
