Nursery Update: A Green Girl’s Nursery

Nursery Update: A Green Girl’s Nursery

A couple of weeks ago I shared the plan for our whimsical farmhouse nursery. We have been BUSY and major things have happened in the space! Installation of the vertical paneling and wallpaper is complete and we chose a paint color! It’s the most delicious shade of green. A green girl’s nursery, great for someone like me that is not a big fan of pink and purple. It took us 12 paint samples to settle on the color, but it’s perfect!!

The Nursery Before

The room that is becoming our nursery was serving as a workout/catch-all/second guest room. Besides having new flooring installed, we have not done anything in the room until now…as you can probably gather from the super stylish ceiling fan and orange doors/window trim. 😉

A cute bay window adds some character to the otherwise small and basic room. I had hoped that we could lower the wall under the windows and create a window seat. We peeked inside the wall to see what was going on in there and unfortunately, because of how our roofline is situated and extends into the wall, it would be way more work than we want to put into it at this stage of the game.… Read more
