The big nursery reveal

I am pronouncing the nursery FINISHED, although there will still be a few minor additions (like a changing pad and cover) to come. Pictures in a moment, with a list of sources at the end.

First, I want to say a big thank you to my wonderfully talented friend Anca Sommerville, who took almost all of these photos. Second, I also owe many thanks to my husband, who put in long hours painting the closet and installing the new organization system, figuring out how best to hang my tree branch and patiently examining the Jeep to make sure I hadn’t destroyed the undercarriage while trying to pull over to acquire said branch.

And now, we’ll get right to it.

    Oh my goodness! This has to be the most beautiful and creative nursery I have ever seen. What a lucky little girl!

  3. What is the Color/Brand paint on the walls?

      Hi, Jennifer.
      The paint is Behr flat enamel, but I’m having trouble remembering the color name. I looked up their purples, and I feel fairly confident it was “Canyon Mist.” I will do some digging to see if I can find the original paint chip.

        Well, good thing I checked! My memory was failing me badly. I found the leftover paint can, and the color was Silverberry, 670F-4. Also, it was actually Sherwin Williams eggshell paint that we had color matched to the Behr paint chip. (We usually use Behr but got a really good deal on a professional painter who only used Sherwin Williams.) Hope that helps!
