Sophia’s Nursery Reveal

Hi Loves!

I’m so excited to share my favorite little room in our house right now, my baby Sophia’s nursery. You can imagine how excited I was when I found out that I was having a baby girl! I finally had an excuse to have a whole pink room and my husband could not complain about it, lol! Now, we do live in a 1100 sq feet apartment and the nursery is also our office and hubby’s closet. So, putting all together was definitely a little challenging. I didn’t have enough space to add some of the things that I wanted like a glider or a wardrobe for Sophia.

The inspiration for her room came from this crown from Restoration Hardware, I just love it! However, it was definitely not in my budget. I found a better priced one at Pottery Barn and ended up spray painting it gold (sold out, similar here). I wanted her nursery to be like a romantic/princess room with lots of soft pink and touches of gold. Finding the right pink was way harder than what I imagined, I think we went through 10 different shades of pink, we finally decided to go with Pinafore pink by Ralph Lauren, its just the perfect soft pink!

When you live in a small apartment, storage is always an issue. We needed tons of it, so for the changing table I decided to go with the Malm dressers from Ikea that gives me plenty of storage. Its a little bit higher than most changing tables but it works for us. For the decor, since the room is so small, I kept it as simple as possible (though I did went a little crazy with all the stuffed animals :)).

    The gold shelving unit in the corner…. You bought that from Ikea and spray painted it? I LOVE IT!!!! It’s exactly what I’m looking for to put in my nursery for my baby girl. I’m looking at the Ikea website and have not seen that shelving unit. Do you remember what it was called exactly?

    Thank you so much for posting this — simply beautiful!!!!

    Hope to hear from you soon,

    Can you share what gold spray paint brand and shade of gold you used for the ettagere? I find it’s so hard to get the perfect shade of gold!

    Beautiful! What did you do to make the two Malm dressers appear as one? I am trying to figure out how to hide the seam on the top when the two dressers are next to one another. Thanks!

    Beautiful nursery! How was the 4 drawer Malm height for a changing table? Was it a comfortable height or a little too tall? The 3 drawer seems too low (I’m 5’7″ and my husband in 6 foot).

      To be honest with you, we barely used, lol! I end up changing her in my bed all the time. Since we live in a small apartment, so my bedroom is very close. I think for your hight would be perfect. The smaller one is just too small for our high ceilings. xoxo

      Hi Sherron! Thank you! The chandelier it’s linked on the thumbnails on the shop the post session ?

    So gorgeous. The dresser pulls you added took it over the top. Such a great choice. I have the same metallic spray paint and have been dying to use it. I’m going to spray paint my daughter’s dresser knobs and my living room bookcase now. Absolutely love this. If you have any tips on spray painting the bookcase, please let me know. It’s intimidating. LOL

      Thank you April! It’s always better to spray laying flat I think, but I’m sure you will do a beautiful job! ??

  17. July 19, 2017 / 10:23 pm

    Hi. Can you share what book set you have on the bookcase? The 5 books – one with purple, peach, yellow, etc books? Thanks!

    Love everything about this! Where is the rug from? I have the same crib but in a cream color, I’m obsessed with white furniture and thought I could possibly paint you have any suggestions for that? Have you ever painted something that was iron?

    • Ceres
      August 14, 2017 / 11:12 am

      Hi Kathy,
      I found the rug at tjmaxx! Ummm I think the cream color is fine, no? I would be careful with painting the crib. It needs to be baby approved paint!
