Her nursery will never be finished. It's a work in progress. I repeat, her nursery will never be finished. It's a work in progress. I've had to tell myself this multiple times as I struggle to share pics of a nursery that is still not 'done' in my eyes. But I've gotten so many emails asking to see some highlights. So here I am, putting myself out there, hoping y'all like what you see.
I absolutely LOVE her room and think it is the perfect color palette for our little love angel. She is spunky, fiery, feisty but beyond sweet. Her smiles are infectious and she is possibly the world's easiest baby. She is truly my best little buddy and such a great sidekick for Nash. It's amazing how you can pick colors for a room of a person you haven't even met. If I had to pick them all over again, these would still be downright perfect for her. Read on for some details and info!
Also, I have to give credit where credit is due. The pictures that are, well, much more appealing in this lineup were all shot by Hollie over at Rubigirl. They were shot during our newborn shoot HERE and I just love them. I've been holding onto them for this post. Oh how I adore the pics she snapped that day. So don't scoff at my attempt as time is limited when you're juggling two-under-two and I just wanted to be sure to share before her first birthday arrives, ha!
Oh my gosh, she has grown SO MUCH since this pic was taken. But I do love her intent little expression and her sweet cream bloomers! Those things probably wouldn't even fit on ONE of her thighs, these days.

I worked so hard on creating a gallery wall that I adored. It not as easy as it looks, I tell ya. Some are just fillers and others are special mementos. It'll be so much fun to add new pictures and fun inspiration as it grows. Walt had the great idea of just filling up the entire wall. I think we just might. But for now, 'Grow wise little owl!'
Ok, so we def have a DIY post coming around this here amazing dresser. This is the white IKEA Malm dresser with some fancy pants spray paint, knobs and the amazing O'verlays added onto the drawer fronts. Oh jeez how I love and adore this piece! And how genius those O'verlays truly are. And easy peasy. We cannot wait to share that before and after with y'all.
We also just repainted Nash's changing table topper (more on that project can be found HERE) since he's clearly out grown that stage. And the basket is a Nash hand me down too. Except this go round it's chock-full of hair bows.

I can honestly say this wall is one of my favorite parts of Clover's entire room. What a labor of love it was. My neighbor had THIS great wall stencil that she let me borrow. I decided to mix and match the centers and flower colors and I think it turned out total perfection. I took a ton of DIY pics so I'll be sure to post about that too. Phew, I've got some DIY posts to knock out, huh?
And how about that trio of absolutely ADORABLE baby animals? The Animal Print Shop preciousness at it's best. This is probably the most expensive 'item' in Clover's entire nursery (including Target frames) but we just couldn't help ourselves. Check out more of this amazing artist's work HERE. We could literally fill our house with her precious animal imagery. And it was so hard narrowing it down to just three sweet critters. When we first hung them, Nash used to tell them goodnight...every...single...night.
I took THIS Ikea frame and painted it purple and did some DIY magic similar to Nash's magnetic board in his room HERE. And voila, the cutest little memento board you ever did see. And yes, another DIY post on this, we promise! And thanks be to our great readers who gave us a great pointer on how to make this a much more cost effective DIY...man, I love y'all!
So my Aunt is insanely talented. We mentioned her My Personal Credo work HERE in our DIY dining room artwork post, so it might look familiar to you. She made Clover her own Personal Credo and it took my breath away. I mean, when I read it I just get all teary eyed, warm and ooey gooey. It's exactly my wish for our amazing girl. Pleeeeeease check out her amazing array of work HERE. And since it's super hard to read the full credo from this image, I'll help you out:
"I b.liev'n...Living life, laughing hard, and loving from the heart. Growing to be strong, empowered to always take the risk and yet, being humbled by the abundance of love all around me. She said, confident that her love of life and her fiery little spririt would take her to all the places in her dreams!"
Now if that is not absolutely gorgeous, I don't know what is. Love, love, love it so very, very much!
Her closet kills me. KILLS. ME. What a lucky girl. She was graciously given so many fabulous hand-me-downs that I swear to y'all, I only had to spend about $100 on clothes for her. I got her organizers from Walmart (don't be mad, they're eco friendly materials) and they've helped keep it super in line for me. I love an organized closet (more on that HERE) so this should come as no surprise. I didn't have time to make my own closet dividers, like we did for Nash's closet, HERE. But I guess I could just use his again since he's already my size 2T boy.
Oh how I hope and pray that this will be a room where her soul can always be retored, her mind strengthened and engaged, her spirit forever cherished and her heart always warmed. I love you little nursery. Hold my baby tight, every night and feed her nothing but good energy, please.
