Just to start, this technically isn't a traditional nursery. It's sort of a nursery-transition-to-big-girl room and the only reason I can't fully say big girl room is because my daughter still sleeps in a crib! And like I mentioned before, that won't change until she's brave enough to climb out of it :) So like this it stays and I'm completely happy with that.
It was time to add more big-girl elements to the room because she is really loving dress-up, "tea-time" and dolls. Her dresser is a changing table that was painted white. The pink knobs add just a touch of extra charm.
You can read more HERE about how I created her shelving:
I added the white eyelet curtains and used extra fabric from her bedding to create ruffles down the length of them. Her accessories are all contained in the stacked drawers and jewelry hanger. I made the lamp using flower petals to cover the shade and glued a piece of ostrich feather trim around the edge......so very girly!
The chandelier might be my absolute favorite thing in her room!! I love how vintage and feminine it is. I found it on Etsy at a shop that isn't in business anymore....wish it was!
I decided to sell the rocker that I had and moved in this oversized chair to use for reading and cuddling! Underneath the slipcover is an old leather chair that was falling apart but now has a new life :) I sewed the slipcover using this amazing tutorial from Honeybear Lane!
Now onto the FUN part!! This is my daughters favorite part of the room! I removed the doors to her closet and painted the interior a soft aqua color and added all of the things she loves......a dollhouse, dress up area and reading nook!
It still works as a closet.....I mainly use it for dresses and dress up clothes (all her shirts are in the dresser:) You can read more HERE about how I covered the standard closet dowels in a fun fabric!
The 'dollhouse' is simply a white cabinet I purchased a Lowe's. I used scrapbook paper to function as wallpaper for the back of the cubbies. It has a white ric-rac roofline and the clouds were made using my Silhouette.

I added a few accessories to the closet including this fabric button intial art! You can find the tutorial HERE.
I hope you enjoyed touring our newly done nursery-to-big-girl-room space! I had such a fun time creating this for her :) And I'm pretty sure the little princess approves!
