Surprise Nursery Reveal

I finally have pictures to show you of the nursery that we did for one of my friends. She is expecting her 3rd baby, so a couple of us got together and decided to do her nursery for her as a surprise. She picked out the bedding and we took it from there. This took weeks of planning details and some painting projects, but doing this as a surprise was so much fun. She left on a Friday morning and come home to a beautiful nursery painted and decorated for her sweet baby girl on Saturday afternoon.

Here is the bedding from Pottery Barn Kids that was the starting point for the nursery. It is the Isabelle in Pink, but has been discontinued.

Here is another picture that we used for canopy inspiration.

She wanted to nursery to have a French feel, but not over the top with poodles. This is what we came up with.

The Walls
-painted a pale pink.
The Canopy
-created using a moulding block (not exactly like the one I linked to, but that was the closest picture I could find) turned upside down, painted, sheers stapled inside, and hung with a sawtooth hanger. We used curtain holdbacks from Lowes to hold the sheers back.
The Eiffel Tower
-painted by a friend and artist of the family on canvas

Here is the other side of the room.

The Lamp
-created by me as a joke using hot glue and all of the ribbon and feathers that were on her diaper cake, but she loved it.

The Frame
-purchased at a local antique/junk store. I removed the mirror and painted the frame a glossy black. The inspiration for this came from HERE.
The Letters
-purchased from Hobby Lobby, painted by me

Photo Mats
-Wrapping paper purchased from Target

The Curtains
-Isabelle Toile panels purchased from PBK and trimmed in black pom pom fringe.

The Chandelier
-I didn't get a good picture of the chandelier, but here is a stock photo of the one hanging in the room.

The nursery came out so pretty and girly. Now we are just waiting to meet sweet baby girl in about 5 weeks.


  1. That is absolutely adorable and what sweet friends you are!

  2. What an awesome job! It is perfect! =)

  3. Great job! What a nice surprise for your friend. We picked our nursery room wall colors and are waiting for Home Depot to have a Behr paint rebate to buy it (we have time so might as well save some $). I can't wait to add all of the art and accessories though.
