Before we begin, let me tell you that Hannah's room is a whole lot less pink than it used to be. Before we moved I had the walls pink in addition to all the pink decorations. I credit this to something I call The Second Daughter Syndrome. You see, I have this older sister, right? And all of her stuff was pink. So when I came around my parents wanted to broaden their color palette. My sister continued to get all the pink clothes, toys, etc. and I was always stuck with purple, or worse--boy colors. So when I found out Hannah was a girl, my Second Daughter Syndrome kicked into high gear and I totally overcompensated for my unpink childhood. I've toned it down a bit since then, but my love affair with pink still comes out every now and again.
Anyway, where were we?
I'm so excited to share this very special room with you all. It's a tiny space, but it is brimming with love and is definitely one of my favorite rooms in our home.
We went with a butterfly/flower/garden theme. I just love the green color on the walls.
The hanging wall art was purchased super cheap from Hobby Lobby. I wasn't so sure about the mirrored closet, but Hannah loves waking up and looking at herself from her crib.
Hannah' Lovies. Mr. Seahorse is her BFF.
This glider was a craigslist find. $70! Here we sit every night to snuggle and read "On the Night You Were Born." Many beautiful memories were made in this chair.
My sister painted the picture above Hannah's dresser. I love the personal touch that it adds to the space.
One of my favorite things about Hannah's room is all the natural light. She has a big glass door that leads out onto our patio. She's got a pretty little view of mama's hanging flowers and the pool.
This shelf above the changing table is great for holding all the little things that need to be within arms reach during a diaper change. I call those baskets my Magic Baskets because I store all kinds of distraction aids when Hannah decides she wants to thrash and scream while I change her diaper (every time). Some things you may find in my Magic Baskets: a shinny beaded necklace, an old cell phone, a toothbrush, and a hair brush.
And there you have it, my Hannah Bear's nursery. I'm hoping that the space grows with her well, and that I don't have to change too much as she grows. It will be a sad, sad day when I have to redecorate her bedroom. Teenagers like flowers and butterflies, right? I'm kidding, kind of.
