A Perfectly Sweet DIY Nursery

Today I am so honored to be sharing with you some pictures of my girlfriend Katey's nursery for her newborn daughter, Mallory.  Katey has become the queen of DIY in all areas of her home, but her talent is really shown off here.  Every time I visit her, I feel like I'm walking around going 'that's amazing!' and 'how did you do that?' and 'Oh! I want to learn how to do that....'  

It's safe to say that Katey, you are my DIY inspiration.......though I haven't quite summoned the willpower to actually DO one of these projects floating around in my head.  

Without further ado, here is Miss Mallory's nursery completely decorated by her Mama and Daddy.  

What a lucky little lady (for more reasons that just this!).

Gorgeous mixture of colors and patterns.  



  • Glider & Ottoman from Dutailier, cushions were replaced to match nursery as this was from the first born's nursery.  A tip - after pricing out getting her old cushions recovered, she found it was much cheaper to just order new ones!
  • Nightstand - Target.com
  • Pink Pouf - Land of Nod Outlet  
  • Rug - Land of Nod Outlet - Raised Floral Rug








  • Artwork - Home Goods
  • Pink Chair - garage sale find, spray-painted.
  • Pink table - repurposed from the sunroom; was a martini table from West Elm. Spray painted it hot pink.



  • Wall color - Benjamin Moore's Icing on the Cake
  • Stencil color - Benjamin Moore's Forget Me Not
  • Stencil work - I must note the Katey's handy hubby did all the stencil and paint work here - what a guy!  Tom......are you for hire?

If you have any questions about Mallory's nursery, don't hesitate to ask!  I'm happy to go straight to the source for you.  I am still in awe of all that Katey accomplished while pregnant and running after a 2 year old.....most nights I wanted to just flop into bed when I was in her shoes!

Congratulations on your beautiful baby girl, Katey.
