Audrey's Room

We painted Audrey's room the day after we found out she was a she. The curtains were made and hung just two days later. And we moved in a dresser, nightstand, and bookshelf repainted with a fresh coat of white. (Really all the credit for the painted walls, furniture, and the curtains has to go to my mom, I basically just sat and watched her work.) 

Other than adding the crib and an amazing mobile my sister made a few months later that is how her room stayed. Painted walls, cute curtains, a mobile and white furniture. There wasn't a single thing on the wall for almost the entire first year of her life. Honestly, I don't feel too bad for her, it isn't like she noticed, but I sat in that room for hours a day, it seems like I would have put something up for me to look at.

Several months ago I found these alphabet printables and then I made the footprint shadowbox and all the sudden it felt like her room was coming together after all. My favorite part of the whole room is how many items hold special meaning, it definitely is not a cookie cutter room.


Here's a little tour:

The 60th anniversary poster from the ice cream shop owned by Bryce's family.



Repainted $5 dresser
and these amazing (and free!) alphabet printables.

Repainted bookshelf that my dad made for my sister the year I was born,
footprint shadowbox,
an embroidery from Bryce's great-grandma,
an embroidery done by Bryce's dad when he was a kid,
and a beautiful butterfly print Audrey received on her first birthday from my sister.

My sister made this mobile and gave it to me at my baby shower, I think it is one of the most amazing things I've ever seen.

Audrey's giraffe quilt made by my mom, she surprised me with it at my baby shower.

Curious what Audrey was doing the whole time I was taking pictures?

She was pulling every single Kleenex out of the box. She had no interest in putting them back in either, she thought the box made a much better home for her alphabet magnets and the pile of Kleenex is now in a heap on the bathroom counter.

  1. At least Audrey was keeping busy while you took photos :)

    Her room looks great, I really love those curtains. Also, I had no idea Bryce's family owns an ice cream shop. That is so fun!
