So I’m finally getting around to sharing Lainey’s winter wonderland nursery. I know it’s practically the middle of December and ya’ll have already decorated so the last thing you need is my inspiration. BUT there’s always next year 🙂 Miss Lainey is snoozing right now which is when I get to do my writing. I know she’s exhausted from the Christmas party today at Austin’s work. There was so much going on and so much to see. It’s her first Christmas and we’re having a blast taking her everywhere and seeing allll the Santas. I can’t imagine how fun it’ll be when she actually knows what’s going on around her.
On to her Christmas nursery. Come on in! Lainey loves new friends 🙂 . Since it is her first Christmas and she’s only 5 months old, I guess I did this sweet nursery more for myself. She does enjoy looking at the lights on her trees and her ornament mobile but obviously she wouldn’t miss them if they weren’t there. I do want it to be a tradition for us though, putting a tree in her room that she can decorate. This is the beginning of that but at least for this year and maybe next, mama dictates the décor theme.
I went with rose goldish/pinkish and traditional yellow gold in here. I never do colors like this in our living room so it was so fun to do something different. I’ve had these vintage gold ornaments for a while now and loved getting to use them in here. I picked up some cheap pink ornaments at Walmart because 1) I wasn’t tryna break the bank on them and 2) I must do shatterproof ornaments. Not because of the kid. Because I am not adult enough to handle glass ornaments apparently. Every year I shatter so many glass ornaments. I give up. Austin is constantly asking what the hell is wrong with my hands. I can’t hold on to anything. Pretty sure my grip is equal to 5 month old Lainey’s.
Anyway, once on the tree, I wasn’t happy with the shade of pink of the ornaments. I should’ve returned them and bought the pretty rose gold ornaments at Hobby Lobby but of course I had to do things the hard way, as per usual. I bought rose gold spray paint and sprayed all the pink ornament I had. In the long run though, this might have paid off because I ended up with a lot more rose gold ornaments than I would have if I had bought them for the same amount of money.
I used some faux eucalyptus stuck in her trees and in the mobile garland. I also strung some natural wood bead garland around the trees. I found the bead garland at Michaels.
I made the mobile from a piece of scrap wood by drilling a hole on each end and stringing jute rope through the holes. I tied knots in the ends of the rope and cut the excess close to the wood. Then I attached the rope to hooks hanging from the ceiling. The three ornaments are hanging by fishing line. I’m constantly sneaking into my husband’s tackle box to get fishing line. It’s so handy. He actually just bought me my own specifically for my projects so I’d quit using his “good stuff.”
The large bottle brush trees are from Hobby Lobby and the small ones are vintage thrifted finds.
I hope you like this room as much as I do. When I finished decorating it, it truly made my heart smile. Having a little girl is the sweetest thing.
I’ve linked the 6ft tree below. Would you believe it’s only $35?! The 2ft tree was a garage sale find from this past summer. It came with the small pink ornaments and lights for $2! You’ll hear me say this a million times, I freakin’ love thrifting. I also love sharing some of my scores from thrifting adventures and wanna hear about your scores too. Finding treasures for next to nothing is such a rush. Drop me a comment below or follow me on insta and let’s talk thrifted finds!
