Show Me my Grandbabies Nursery

Posted on

Is is really almost August....?  While my elves are holding down the fort at Miss Cayce's, I have been busy using all the Show Me Decorating techniques on Baby Rooms.  I am proud to announce the arrival of my 1st granddaughter Layla Elizabeth Hamilton born on July 14th @ 2:56 p.m.  Jim and I could not be more excited about the new edition to our family. 


When we first learned the news that Layla was going to be a girl, I started thinking about how we would transition Kaydin's nursery into a her's.  The key thing to picking out bedding is to go basic with colors that are gender neutral. (No I don't mean yellow and green) Find fabrics that you like that are very versatile. Amanda found what she loved at Graham Kracker (

We selected multiple black and white fabrics to coordinate with a basic denim.  Our boy fabrics included a rusty-red paisley, an olive-green chenille, and a red plaid.  We had 2 sheets made out of the green chenille and the rusty-red paisley.  We found these fabulous all boy pictures @gardenridge that pulled in our color scheme from the bedding.

Using the bumper and skirt from Kaydin we switched the boy fabrics for a girly gray based multiple colored floral print along with a pink  chenille.  @GrahamKracker sewed the new blanked and the pink sheet.

Wall Decor

Tip: If walls are heavily textured and the words do not seem to be sticking. Wallpaper seam glue is the answer.  Simply rub glue on finger and spread directly onto the letters.

Tip: Find a "Leon" (Jim my husband) to hang electrical things for you!
