Nursery Reveal!!!

I posted a sneak peek here of the nursery back in August! 
Baby girl's room is now complete and I am so excited to share it with you all! Decorating a nursery has always been a dream of mine. I was planning nurseries in my head way before we were even pregnant! Designing/creating Leah's nursery with my husband will always be one of my favorite memories. I picked out most of the furniture/decorations but he was the one behind all the hard work to make it my dream nursery! And we had so much fun doing it together :)

Welcome to Leah's nursery!
The wallpaper was the inspiration behind the whole room. I just love it! It has a textured sparkle to it that makes the space extra girly and fun :)
The tufted suede fabric wall that my hubby created! (more details below).

Leah's 1st stuffed animal on the left. The hubs insisted that he picked out her first stuffed animal and this is the one he picked :)
 I love all the storage this dresser has for not only her clothes but for diapers, wipes, burp cloths, swaddles, etc. 
Apothecary jars filled with baby powder and cotton balls and her first little perfume bottle :)
One of my best girlfriends got us the Burt's Bee's baby collection as a gift at our Gender Reveal Party since the theme of the party was "What will it bee?"
It later became the splash of color inspiration for the room :)
The elephant piggy bank the hubs and I painted at a local pottery place. We wanted to have a little something personalized from us in her nursery :)
Her sweet little bassinet in our room

Now all we need is our little girl to complete the room :)

DETAILS

Crib: Casablanca Crib by Bratt Decor
Be sure not to order this crib off the Bratt Decor website, it's a lot pricier. A lot of websites carry this crib, so be sure to look around to find the best price (a lot of the websites will offer free shipping, too!) I can't remember which website we used but I just google shopped around for the best deal.

Wall Paper: Candice Olson Design
We purchased this wallpaper from a website called Steve's Blinds and Wallpaper (www.stevesblindsandwallpaper.com). It was about $150.00 cheaper than purchasing the wallpaper from the Candace Olson website!

Paint: The paint was a custom color that was created from all the colors in the wallpaper so their is no specific name for the color :(

Fabric (Tufted Wall): Jo Ann Fabrics

Details on the tufted wall: 
I had this crazy vision to turn the bottom of our wall into a tufted fabric wall. I had never seen it done before but I knew how I wanted it to look in my head. My sweet and patient husband took my crazy vision and made it a reality. We both had no idea where to start but he made it happen for me and I couldn't be happier with how it turned out!

Disclaimer: I spent the majority of the time doing this while my husband put together the tufted wall:



Therefore, this will be a vary vague description of how the wall was created. My husband said he would be more than happy to provide any and all details for anyone who has any questions, but I thought I would at least include the basics!

He started by taking off the floorboard and chair rail trim. He then used thick batting (I can't remember the weight we used but it was the thickest JoAnn fabrics sold and we still doubled it up) and staple gunned it to the wall. The thickness of the batting will determine how tufted the wall will look when complete with the buttons. He then covered the batting with the white suede fabric we picked out at JoAnn fabrics.
(Always make sure to use JoAnn coupons! If you download their app they almost always have a 50% off coupon on fabric!). 
Once the fabric was on the wall he nailed the trim back on. We also had to purchase corner trim for all the corners of the wall. David then measured and took a staple gun and made an X where all the buttons would be placed, which gave it the tufted appearance. (We made the buttons from the same tufted suede fabric so it would match). David then hot glued all the buttons over the staples! Like I mentioned earlier, it's a very vague description but I hope it gives you a better idea :)
