White Floral Nursery Makeover Reveal

Cue the girlish squeals, y’all! Because the nursery makeover is FINISHED!

Oh, my nesting little heart can barely handle how sweet it is.

If you’ve been following along on our nursery makeover journey, this is what this spare bedroom looked like when we moved in last year:

Ever since we found out this baby bean would be arriving and that we were expecting another little princess, I started on a nursery decorating spiral.

The one little catch I had for this nursery though was that I didn’t want it all to be in-your-face-pink.

I remembered the chaos and stress and sleeplessness all too well from when Olivia was a baby (back in the days when we lived above my parents’ garage).

And so, this time, I really wanted to create a space that was peaceful and soothing for us and Baby Regan.

I hardly recognize this room!

Being in a limited DIY state physically (no fumes or power tools or hauling thrifted furniture as much for me in this room makeover), we had to call in a contractor to refinish the hardwood floors that were chilling out under the old carpet. (We still have one other carpeted room in the house that I’d love to DIY eventually.)

Robert did manage to do all of the picture frame molding himself though, which is definitely one of my favorite projects ever.

I’m pretty amazed how much we actually stuck to my original vision for this space because there always seems to be some thrifted find that changes my direction most of the time.

One of the elements I had my heart set on from Day 1 was ripping down the old ceiling fan to replace it with this gorgeous pendant light we got from Del Mar Fans & Lighting.

I love that it’s feminine and glam with a modern/vintage vibe. The light bounces around beautifully in here.

The sliding closet doors were a sad situation before and were constantly falling off of the track.

So Robert and I replaced them, and I painted the doors in the space using my usual method in the color Benjamin Moore Stonington Gray. It’s still calming and neutral but creates some contrast against the walls painted in Magnolia Home True White.

To add softness to the hardwood floors (and help with noise reduction because an echoing crying newborn at 2 am is not a fun situation), we brought in this gray and white rug from eSaleRugs.

I actually originally planned to use a cheaper white metal vintage-style crib, but when I went to order it, it was out of stock and wouldn’t arrive until way after Regan was born, so I went with this convertible white metal crib option instead.

In the end, I think it’ll be a happy accident because we’ll be able to stretch its use into her toddler years.

For the bedding, since I don’t really see the point in using pillows and bumpers for safety reasons, I just picked up this pale pink print crib sheet and ruffled crib skirt.

(Little tip: Layer 2-3 alternating waterproof mattress pads and crib sheets on the mattress so if baby has a messy accident in the middle of the night, you can just rip off the top mattress pad / sheet layer and not have to remake the bed while in your stressed out, sleepy state.)

To add a little color and texture to the walls, I found this felt flower swag garland set that is one of my FAVORITE things in the room.

I really thought about attempting a DIY version of this, but there is just no way I could have pulled it off with this amount of stunning detail. (Mine probably would have turned out as just a giant clump of hot glue and fabric scraps.)

To add some soft lighting in here for nighttime, I opted for this floor lamp (it’s sold out now but this one is similar).

(A few of y’all told me about sleep light bulbs that I’m really curious to see if they live up to their promise, so I have a couple on order that I’ll report back to see if they work. Fingers crossed!)

For a touch of color on the walls, I hung up these prints from Society6 with desert flowers and succulents from an artist called Nature Magick. Aren’t they sweet?! Oh. my. gosh.

By the way, confession time: Do you see anything wrong with our bi-fold closet door knobs? I had a total blonde / preggo brain moment screwing those in. Another tip: Knobs on bi-fold doors don’t open like that. 😉 Doy!

Fixing that ASAP.

We’ve known this time around with baby #2 (learned the hard way) that springing for a good glider is the way to go. We still managed to find this glider that was a decent price in comparison to the pricier designer brands that were $1,000+. And it is so, so comfy.

I rounded up a few other gliders that are pretty but not too pricey in this post.

For a handy little table to keep items in easy reach while I’m nursing, I used this garden stool with this accent lamp on top for some soft light during nighttime feedings.

I just installed this Hatch Sound Machine on it too that I’m really excited about. (Because sound machines are LIFE for getting any sleep with a baby.)

For the first time in a very long time, I actually didn’t buy a dresser at a thrift store and opted for this IKEA Hemnes one instead that I jazzed up using these appliques from MyOverlays.

I didn’t want any funky thrifted dresser smells getting on baby clothes (which sometimes can be an issue), and the great thing about IKEA is there are so many great organization systems for the drawers. I’ll be sharing more about that part soon though.

Important side note: ANCHOR those dressers, y’all! Keep those precious babies safe.

I found this lidded hamper from HomeGoods to stick beside the dresser and help with the messy changing situation.

I just realized the print in the metal matches the print on the crib sheet. Ha! Totally not planned. Maybe a subconscious thing. Apparently, my brain coordinates things even when I don’t realize it.

To keep some of the essentials in easy reach, I just used this tiered fruit basket I found in the kitchen section of HomeGoods and spray painted it with Rustoleum Champagne Mist to match the light fixture.

The two soap dispensers have lavender baby lotion and hand sanitizer in them alongside wash cloths and a few teether toys to keep Regan occupied during changes.

I got these three lidded glass and ceramic canisters in the HomeGoods kitchen section too for holding baby bows, pacifiers, and Q-tips.

To help bounce around some extra light, I hung up this round Target mirror and added a smaller version of the felt flower swag for some balance.

The little hints of gold add just enough warmth against all of the white.

And for extra sleep help (because I’m taking all the help I can get), we hung up these blackout Roman shades in the color Bonaire Flaxen, but I’m totally willing to pay extra if it means this kiddo will sleep more soundly for daytime naps.

I can’t believe it’s finished! It’s taken me way longer than I thought it would to call this room complete, but I think part of me really wanted to drag it out and cherish every last bit of the sentimental.

There’s a very good chance this is our last baby, so this nursery is rather bittersweet for me.

Now that our sweet baby girl is here, I cannot wait to introduce her to y’all! For now though, we’re soaking up all of the snuggles we can get.
