Easton’s Mint and Coral Nursery Tour

mint and coral nursery

I think Easton’s room may be my favorite room in our house!  This is probably because I put a TON of time into picking out each and every little thing in it!  I recovered a 30 year old upholstered rocker from my grandparents house, painted the little spice racks from IKEA to use as bookshelves and handmade some of the art that we hung.  We wanted this room to be special and I really feel like it is!  Granted she doesn’t spend too much time in here yet, as she is still sleeping in a bassinet in our room, but I still enjoy just walking in there with her and looking around or reading her one of her books while rocking her in my grandparent’s chair.  I can’t wait to see the memories she makes in her little room in the years to come!

We got these Ikea spice racks and spray painted them to use as books shelves!  Instead of cards for my baby shower, guests were asked to bring books for Easton.  As a teacher, I’ve always been a huge fan of children’s books and I absolutely loved getting books from friends and loved ones to read to her.  I love displaying them on these shelves and can’t wait to keep adding to her collection as she grows!

This is the 30 year old rocker from my grandparent’s house.  I loved sitting in this chair as a little girl and it is so special to me that now I can rock my little girl in the same one and remember my grandparents.  Here is what the chair originally looked like (I guess pink pinstripe was in 30 years ago? lol)

Believe it or not, I used cheap drop cloth to cover it!  I love using drop cloth for DIYs.  I used it when I made my DIY tufted headboard and I’ve been hooked ever since!  It is super cheap, durable, and I just love the way it looks.
 Besides the color scheme of mint and coral, the other theme of her nursery seems to be elephants and flamingoes.  This wasn’t something I had in mind at the beginning, but it just kind of developed as I went along. The elephants because my grandmother (who we got Easton Louise’s middle name from) loved and collected elephants. After she and my grandfather passed away, my mom gave me like 20 collectable elephants from their house and I needed somewhere to put them.  It just seemed fitting to put them here.  The flamingoes came about because they just matched the color scheme and they were everywhere we looked for baby/kids decor.
The wainscoting behind the crib is one of my favorite parts of her room!  Believe it or not, it is wallpaper!  It was so easy to install and reasonably priced, too.  We just added a chair rail on top.  I think it adds such a nice, finished look to her room. You can find some like it here.

 The cart next to the changing table/dresser is the Raskog Utility Cart from Ikea.  It is perfect for holding diaper changing necessities!

    1. Thank you, Savanna! I am really happy with the way it turned out too! The flamingo stuffed animal is one of my favorite additions and it makes for the best prop for pictures with my daughter as she grows 🙂
