Nursery Projects: Paint and Bookcase Re-do

It has been so very fun to start on our baby girl nursery! When Sawyer was born we were living in a very small, upstairs apartment and were very limited on what we could do decor wise. Getting to paint and design both Sawyer and baby Jane's rooms is such a treat!

A couple of weekends ago we began working on Jane's nursery. We started with painting the walls an adorable, super soft, shell pink. I'm so happy with how the paint turned out and how it pairs with the ceiling and carpet colors.

My awesome husband is a fantastic painter!

So eager to help!

Proud big brother
Once the paint was on the walls it was time to think about how to arrange the furniture. Sawyer has recently transitioned to a "big boy" bed, thus freeing up his crib for sister. We moved the crib into the nursery and got the changing table out of storage.

The next step was to re-do an old oak bookshelf someone had given us when we got married.

First we sanded
Then came a couple coats of primer
Then came the super cute yellow paint
We primed the back of the bookshelf

 We used our bedding fabric to line the back of the bookshelf and the result...SUPER CUTE!

We are so happy with how things are turning out! Can't wait to meet our baby Jane!


  1. Super impressive, Amber! I love it. Your daughter will be blessed by these gifts of yours for sure. (My daughters, on the other hand, will have to find other things about me to admire/learn from!)
    Hope you're pregnancy is going well... We got 3 weeks left over here.

  2. Thanks Susan!! Praying for you these next few weeks! Miss you!

  3. I can't wait to see how it looks when it's finished! I love it so far!
