Elise’s Tiffany Blue Nursery

When Angela found out she would be having a little girl, she wanted to put together a delicate and beautiful nursery. She chose to use the colors Tiffany blue and pink with white furniture, and I think it turned out beautifully!

One of my favorite elements of Elise’s adorable nursery is the dresser her mama bought off of Craigslist and refinished… it is so adorable! I love anything that is old that can be refurbished and made to look new. Thanks for sharing this awesome nursery with us, Angela.

When you found out you were having a girl, how did you decide what “theme” you wanted to go with for her nursery?

I really thought I was having a boy, although I was secretly hoping for a little girl. I planned out a room with blue walls either way. For a boy, it would have been an owl theme, but for a girl I wasn’t sure. It wasn’t until I was shopping with my mom and I found the bedding— it was perfect. It was all of my favorite colors and happened to be Cinderella silhouette.

How did you make it all come together? Inspiration boards, all in your head?

I found a lot of inspiration all over the internet. I had a file folder named “baby” on my computer full of ideas. Two of the ideas that were my favorite were the wall color and the dresser style.

What were your main colors?

I knew I wanted a Tiffany blue and pink room, but when I found the bedding I also pulled the green from that.

Where did you find most of the items in the room?

The bedding, rug, curtains and piggy bank are from different discount stores. The dressers I found on Craigslist and I refinished. The crib was from Walmart. The name banner above her crib was custom from the Etsy seller tweetheartwallart. The hair bow that I made was from left over materials from our wedding. The little birds on her shelf were found on clearance at Michael’s. The birthday frame was purchased from a Facebook page, Designs by Samantha. Even some of our family members created items for Elise’s room — the princess art was made by her Aunt Kristen and the quilt was made by her great grandmother Eleanor.

Were you on a budget?

I am a thrifty shopper, so although I didn’t have a budget, I hate to pay retail price for anything. I love the chance to DIY to save a few bucks and to bargain shop. It was a lot of fun to get her dressers off of Craigslist and refinish them.

My husband and I have put a lot of work into her room. The room started out with two layers of old wallpaper; it was even on the ceiling and closet doors. We ripped out old shag carpet and put down new hardwood floors— I’m glad I don’t have to do that again!

It was all worth it though, the walls and floors look wonderful!

Any tips for mamas on how to make their dream nursery come to reality?

Think outside the box. Kid’s room are so fun to create, so pick something fun, bright and interesting for your little one to grow into.

What does Elise (or what do you) love most about her room?

I love the custom touches! It’s really all of the little things— custom artwork, the birdie banner, her handmade quilts. And I love the style of the old dressers. Elise’s favorite would be the twin bed that we added to the room. Since we now co-sleep, the crib is rarely used. Someday she might use her pretty crib, right?

Did your husband have any input?

Mostly no. Even though I was sure to ask his opinion, his response was almost always “that’s fine” or “that’s nice.” I’m not sure if he looks every time I ask, but I still do. He was very adamant on having a ceiling fan and not a chandelier, though, which is what I wanted. He also wanted a “blue” room in the house.
