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

    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,
    Tammy

      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!

    So sweet!
    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.

    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.

      I think it’s Merino Wool by Sherwin Williams. It was painted this color when we moved in!

  14. Such an adorable little space for your baby girl. Maybe store the baby bed until grandbabies, someday. 😉

  • I can’t believe it’s already been three weeks since our trip to the Silobration. 😍😍 I was so glad my husband could go along with me & I love this shot of us—standing in muddy puddles & soaking wet, but happy as can be. I am so blessed to do life with this guy by my side for over 16 years now. 🙏❤️
  • Rise & shine, it’s coffeeeeeee time! ☕️☕️Can you believe Thanksgiving is only two weeks from today? TWO WEEKS. Time to get yo stretchy pants ready!! 🙌🏻 I’d love to know what Thanksgiving traditions you have in your family. I’m looking for new things to do with the kids & I’m curious if you do anything special or unique to celebrate the day?! 🦃
  • You guys told me you love before & after shots, so here’s another one for you. Swipe right to see how I styled our breakfast nook when we first moved in three years ago. This was actually after I painted the walls, they were dark brown before, and I was pretty happy with how it looked. 😬Obviously we have since updated a few things in this space—I added faux shiplap (it was my first big project & I was so proud I did it all by myself!) and then I added a new light fixture, a different table, shelves, etc. .
.
The thing that strikes me the most with these two photos is the difference in my style. At the time I was struggling to figure out what I liked & how I could make that work with a tight budget. It didn’t happen over night, but slowly things have evolved in this space & it looks totally different today. And if you think about it, that’s kind of the cool thing about life. Nothing we do is ever perfect when we just start out. There are bumps in the road, struggles, growing pains, etc. But as time goes on we (hopefully) evolve to be better than when we began. And even though it’s nice to get to the pretty after photo, especially if you’re impatient like me, it’s also kind of nice to appreciate the journey. Yes, that’s cheesy as heck. But it’s TRUE. I love looking back at these photos of when we first started out because it reminds me of the journey & how hard we’ve worked on our home. It’s still a work in progress,  but I’m grateful for it all!
  • Today was crazy/surreal/awesome all at the same time. I spent the day working on a project that totally took me out of my comfort zone, but it went so well & I’m happy I decided to push myself & do it. (Watch my stories to see what I’ve been up to!) Then when I got home I had this smiling baby waiting for me at the front door. My husband snapped this picture of us & I just love the look on her little face. This girl is attached to my hip all day every day, so she was very happy to be back with mama. 😍😍 Now it’s time for pizza & cozy clothes!! 🙌🏻🙏
  • I’m still a little ways off from jumping into Christmas decor, but I did pick up a pair of these eucalyptus & pinecone wreaths from Target yesterday. I loooooooove them & now I’m getting a teeny tiny itch to add a few more pops of Christmas into this room. BUT I’m going to hold out a little longer. Anyone else still holding onto pumpkins or have you started to deck the halls?!
  • #flashbackfriday to one of my favorite snapshots with my girl. I can’t believe this was almost a year ago 😭😭 This sweet pea is my little BFF & I shared in stories today about how she teaches me to be brave. I hope you watch it if you’re facing something big in your life right now. It’s a simple, yet powerful reminder that fear is choice & you can face anything in life if you simply make the decision to be brave. #goforit #getthatcandygirl
