Happy Monday, friends! I am so excited to share photos of Kennedy’s nursery! It has been a work in progress to say the least. I had originally planned on doing our next baby nursery in black and creams because I loved everything I kept seeing in this combo, but when I found out we were expecting a girl of course my mind shifted to “all things baby pink!” haha! After spending weeks on Pinterest, I knew I wanted to have a “light and soft” nursery similar to Brady’s (see here) with light pink accents. When I came across this inspiration blog post by the Posh Home, I absolutely fell in love with the idea of a pink dresser and quite honestly, this whole nursery all together! It has been my “nursery inspiration image” the whole time when picking out items for her nursery.
We ended up converting our spare bedroom into her room so it was quite the task of moving furniture and cleaning out before we could start it, so the fact that it’s finished is such a good feeling! I would be lying if I said I haven’t sat in there to work or just stare at all of her “girly things” and imagine what it’s going to be like when she is here!
I searched high and low for the perfect used dresser I could paint. I searched Craigslist in Dallas, the surrounding areas and in Arkansas. And low and behold, I found this dresser on Craigslist in Fort Smith, AR for $35! The brand is Saga Broyhill and you will never believe this part. When I looked it up, the same dresser online is selling on multiple sites for $1500+ — can we say SCORE! Trust me, part me of me was contemplating just reselling it and making a little extra $$, but it was honestly exactly what I wanted and envisioned in her nursery. A mid-century style with middle drawers I could use for bows, diapers, wipes, etc. It was a brown color when we got it, so I asked my dad if he would paint it for me! So he painted it and we rented a suburban and hauled this bad boy to Texas! All in (with the suburban rental), the dresser only ended up costing us $185! That’s not too bad in my opinion!
I have linked everything below for any of you who are expecting and need some nursery inspiration! I know this has always helped me when I see things in photos I love so I hope it helps you too!
