How to Pull Off a Blue & White Nursery...For a GIRL!

How to Pull Off a Blue & White Nursery...For a GIRL!

Well Summer is finally in full swing over here which means I’ve been spending as much time as humanly possible at our place in Lake Geneva, WI. There is nothing better after a long week than to escape from the craziness of the city and relax in a peaceful environment and enjoy the outdoors. Although, up here, the days are long, and we cram A LOT into each day, so it’s never actually as peaceful as I envision. So I guess it’s still crazy, just a different kind of crazy! As I spend more time up there, my home projects list seems to shift and I focus more on lake house projects. Since these projects are on the forefront of my mind now, I went full force at tackling the nursery. I’m giving myself a pat on the back that I finished it just shy of Hannah’s two-year birthday. At what point does a child’s room shift from being called a nursery to a bedroom? Whatever that age is, I hope I haven’t passed it!

However, if you turn the dial up some...ALL the way up until it reaches the Fun/Cheerful/Happy level, that's a more fitting description of this bedroom's feel. If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram, you've probably seen sneak peaks of this makeover and know what's coming. For the rest of you, brace yourself.
