Nursery Reveal!

I've been really excited to take pictures of the nursery and share! I spent so much time painting things and putting it altogether, and I love how it turned out! I also must say this room has been so much fun to decorate. I've loved searching for cute baby things and the fun bright pink color of it! Okay, here it is..........
This is what you see when you walk in. It's very pink! As you can see her name is above the crib, Chloe. I absolutely love all the monogrammed and personalized things, so I incorporated a lot of it in her room. Her middle name is Mae. Chloe Mae! 
Here is her closet. It's painted the same yellow that is on the trim of her dresser. I made the flower painting and blogged about it here. The little cat above her closet was mine when I was little, I covered it with mod  podge and paper to match her room. 
Close up of all her clothes! This will probably be the only time they are hanging up so pretty and organized. I got the dividers at Hobby Lobby, so they are organized by size.
I love her crib bedding! The sheet is from Pottery Barn Kids and my mom made the pillow, quilt and crib skirt. (I will take the quilt and pillow, etc. out when she is actually sleeping in it.) A friend's mom monogrammed the fabric for the quilt, as well as the window valence. The cute mobile is from Pottery Barn Kids too. I refinished the nightstand, it was mine. The letters are from Hobby Lobby, I covered them with the same fabric as her bedding. Love it!
This little rocking chair was mine when I was little, as well as the little cat pillows. The lamp is from Ikea and I made the bow board. The bow board was actually really easy to make, click here for directions. I just bought a frame at Hobby Lobby (are you seeing a trend here, haha!) 
This rocking chair was Clarke's grandmother's. She used it to rock his mom, she used it to rock him and his sister and now we will use it. She refinished it so it matches everything else, I love how it turned out. I also love the book shelves. They are actually spice racks from Ikea that I painted white. Another idea I found on Pinterest.
Close up of all the books, I can't wait to add to her collection and read to her! 
This dresser took me forever to refinish, really the yellow trim is what took forever. I put new hardware on it from Hobby Lobby. The floor lamp was mine in college, from Ikea. 
This mirror was mine in college too (I got the ribbon at where else? Hobby Lobby) and I painted the yellow cross at the local pottery place where I used to work. I put the changing pad on top of the dresser so I could store all her diaper stuff in the drawers, and hopefully keep it organized and easy to find. There are headbands and hats in the yellow tin I got at a local craft show in town.
Betty wanted to be in the photo shoot, she really loves this room too, haha!

I know it will probably change a lot once she comes and we actually start using it, but for right now I think it's pretty great. Overall I'm happy with how everything turned out and it was well worth all the hours I spent painting and making things for it. Now I am ready for her to be here so we can really start using it!
