Mimi's Room

Mimi's room is finally put together enough for me to share with you.

View from the door

The crib and the sheet, which launched the little "theme" we have throughout. We're ordering a larger-flag custom bunting from the same Etsy seller who did the bunting along the top of the wall, with Mimi's real name embroidered (once we're 100% about what that actually is). That will go above the crib.

We're excited to have enough room to keep our futon. I'm still undecided on what to put on the wall above, but I have some ideas. And that crocheted blanket over the futon? A BEAUTIFUL handmade gift made when Em was born, from long-time pal, Kiraa

Dresser/changing table
The dresser/changing table. The mirror needs to be hung, but we'll keep it low so Mimi can entertain herself with her reflection during changes. That chair in the corner, which was in Em's nursery and was great for middle-of-the-night feedings, doesn't rock at all on Mimi's carpet. It might get moved to a different part of the house, just to keep things a little open in there. 

I picked up this little piece of art, which I still need to frame and hang, from Zulily. You can find more of the artist's work in their Etsy shop. It was hard to restrain myself because I honestly adore so many of the pieces in the shop. They're sweet for a nursery but I can see them working in her room as she gets older. 

The closet, just so you can get a sense of the entire room. The inside is organized but nothing exciting to see. It's filled with diapers, wipes, baby carriers (I may or may not have half a dozen different carriers), diaper bags, tubs of Em's old baby clothes, and some hung clothing. Most of Mimi's clothes are organized in the dresser, ready for her to rock!


  1. So cute! I haven't thought a lick about putting together a nursery for #2 yet. I *think* we'll be using the third (and largest) bedroom upstairs, and like you, keep our guest futon in there, too, which I imagine might come in handy for me, too, when I just need to crash. It's harder now that we're renting, not wanting to go too overboard with customization, but we need to do something. Also, we may wait until the baby is born since we have no idea if it's a he or she! No matter what, though, we'll re-use some of the brown accents from Ro's crib set. That can work with pink, right?

  2. Yay! I can't wait!

  3. aw it's so cute! love the theme of everything and that print really is adorable! xo

  4. So cute. Can't wait til you have her!

  5. I really love it! Glad you went with the pennants. Can't wait to meet her and hear her sweet name.

  6. I'm a little behind, but I wanted to check out the baby's room. I love it!
