Simple Farmhouse Style Mini-Nursery
Holy smokes, this week has been crazzzzzzy. Anyone else in disbelief that it’s only Wednesday?! Sheesh. I don’t think I mentioned it here on the blog, but this week we’re getting our living room and front room painted. I’m soooooooo excited! I’ve been done with that creamy yellow color for a long time now and I can’t even tell you how happy I am to see it go and get a fresh new look. But I have to say, choosing the replacement has been TOUGH. I’ve had a doozy of a time trying to decide, but I finally did and it’s all being painted TODAY! I’ll update you guys more on that soon, but for now let’s chat about the simple farmhouse style mini-nursery I put together in our master bedroom for the little miss. This is just a temporary spot for the crib, the girls will actually share a room soon. But we are still a ways off from making that transition so I wanted to put together a cute corner for baby girl to enjoy these next few months. It’s pretty simple and nothing fancy, but I thought it would be fun to share it with you guys!
If you’ve been around for a while you might remember that I used to have an old door with a mirror on this wall, along with a giant cabinet that held all my clothes and our TV sat on top. That sucker was HUGE and it took up way too much space, so we got rid of it and set up this area for baby girl. It feels so much more open in here now and I honestly love the change. I’m already thinking about how I can use this corner after she transitions to her own room!
This crib is so special to me because it’s the crib we’ve had for all three babies now. It’s covered in tiny little bite marks, dents, and other random marks that show up after nearly seven years of use. I love it and it makes me emotional to think this is very likely the last time we’ll be using it to hold a sweet little baby. Gah! All the mama emotions with this crib.
And side note: of course I never leave anything in the crib when Avie is in there, but you know I had to style a few cute pillows and this little dog in there for the photos. I just couldn’t help it!
I just picked up this off-white textured runner at Target recently, but I cannot find the link for you guys. I don’t know what the deal is, but if I track it down I’ll be sure to share!
I actually made that floral crib mobile using a vintage tablecloth I found at an antique store. It was a lot of fun to make and I absolutely love its whimsical-vintage vibe. I plan to share that easy peasy tutorial soon, so stay tuned if that’s something you’d be interested in seeing!
This mini-nursery is nothing fancy, but I love the simplicity of this sweet little spot. And I’m so grateful our bedroom is big enough that we have this corner for her. I actually love having her in our room, especially since she’s still so tiny. And because this is (most likely) my last baby, I want to soak up all these moments and this special season the best I can. I love being roomies with her and having her close by!
Well thanks so much for dropping by the blog today. I always appreciate when you spend part of your day here with me! xo

I love this nursery!! It’s adorable! I’m obsessed with that floral crib mobile and would love to see the tutorial for it!
Sarah> Alyssa Hampton
Thanks Alyssa, it was super easy. I’ll probably share the tutorial next week!
Beautiful! Love everything you do.
Sarah> Heidi Cunningham
Aw thank you Heidi!!
So sweet, Sarah! Yes, soak up that baby time because it goes by so quickly😢 I adore the mobile! I could see it being used as a first birthday party decoration (maybe adding some colored ribbon and other embellishments) or maybe somehow incorporating it into a lamp or light fixture. Even as it is would be pretty just as a room decoration even when she is older. So pretty!
I could totally see that too Vicki! I plan to keep it around for a long time, I think it will look great hanging in the corner once the girls share a room later this year.
Hi Sarah, Oh I know how you feel having her close!!!! I too kept my sweet baby girl in our room, but without a big enough corner or nook we decided to use the walk in closet. Yep we did!!! Took everything out, painted it a very light pastel pink and sure enough her crib, a dresser, a night stand with a lamp and a small crate of baby toys all fit. It even had a small window high up near the ceiling where I hung an antique lace curtain. It was amazing and when we moved I missed that little room of hers. Now she is 22 years old, but still at home with us and still my baby girl. Of course her room has changed many times over the years but I will never forget her first room.
Enjoy a blessed day with your family,
Love your blog friend,
Sarah> Tammy Ganci
Oh that’s a great idea Tammy! And it sounds like the closet was the perfect fit. I love when that happens! What a special first room for her to have, safe and sound with you. Love those special memories!
I’m excited for the tutorial on that precious mobile. It’s beautiful! Any chance you could give some ideas of how to use elsewhere besides over a baby girl’s crib? I love it but am a mama to only boys!
Thanks Heather! I think that mobile could totally work in a playroom or even just hanging in the corner in your kid’s room! I’m planning to use this in the girls’ room once they move in together.
HI Sarah, You never cease to amaze me. You’re so darn creative and inspiring! Love this little crib area! Thanks as always for sharing!
Sarah> Donna Bergthold
Aw Donna you are too darn sweet. Thank you friend!! xoxo
Love it, Sarah! Such a pretty little space!
Where is the pillow from? Thanks, have a new grandson and just love the words!
Hi Lynn! That pillow is from With Lavender and Grace.
That mobile is the cutest thing ever!! You made her little area just adorable.
So cute! Is that little blue/green side table an antique?
Not really, it’s just one I found on Craigslist!
I LOVE that mobile! Even better that it’s DIY, makes it so much more special. It really does look whimsical and very charming! Can’t wait to see the share.
Thanks Corinne! I plan to share the super easy tutorial soon. xo
This space is absolutely precious. I’ve always kept my little in our room for about the first year. It’s so comforting to have them nearby. They grow up too fast which makes it nice to really soak up the beginning.
What is the color that you have painted in master
I think it’s Merino Wool by Sherwin Williams. It was painted this color when we moved in!
Such an adorable little space for your baby girl. Maybe store the baby bed until grandbabies, someday. 😉
Sarah> Tammie Price
Ohhhhh that’s a great idea!! Thanks Tammie!
Love it! Can I ask where you found the adorable bear in the basket? We are expecting our first baby at the end of the month and couldn’t be more excited!
Thanks Elizabeth! And congrats on your baby, how exciting!! That bear was actually from an antique shop.
A Quick Rug Trick & a Little Chit-Chat

Such a sweet little space! The mobile is just beautiful.
Thank you Pamela!
I love that round green side table! Where did you find it??
