Finally Finished

I finally finished decorating Marielle's nursery.  I was waiting for the dresser and nightstand before I could complete everything.  I originally purchased the dresser and nightstand at a consignment shop about two months prior to Marielle's birth.  The consignment store owner told me she would paint them and have them ready for me within three weeks.  Well, three months went by, I had Marielle and still no furniture.  I called the owner who informed me my items had been stolen by the consigner.   She said she would find something similiar to replace them with.  I waited and waited and seven months later the consigner finally delivered my dresser and nightstand which she said she had "painted."  Turns out she sprayed a few coats of spray paint on them and called it good.  Apparently she didn't have her glasses on when she was spraying because she missed the whole bottom portion of the dresser.   I can't complain though.  I received a great deal on the set.  I plan on repainting them in the Spring and spraying all of the knobs pink. 
Almost all of the accessories have been spray painted to match the colors of the room.  I mostly focused on a pink and cream palette and added a splash of seafoam green.  I purchased accessories from the thrift store, Hobby Lobby and TJ Maxx.


As I mentioned in a previous post awhile back, I was able to get the chandelier for free because they no longer carried the crystals that went with it.  They gave me my money back and I went to Home Depot and purchased my own crystals.  The medallion was purchased at a yard sale for $3.  It's actually an umbrella stand but for $3 it became a very heavy medallion which Clint nailed to the ceiling.





The crib is from Babies R Us, as well as the rocking chair and ottomen.  Originally the chair was purchased when I had Easton and so I just moved it into Marielle's room.  It has held up really well and I love rocking my babies to sleep in it.
