I went back and forth between between the girly girl white furniture set and the dark espresso for our baby girl for weeks. At the end, we decided to go with the dark espresso furniture. I love the look of white furniture, it is so feminine and happy looking. However, it does seem to get dirty easier. Dark furniture also gives the nursery an intimate and cozy feel.

As for the dresser, we switched the original knobs for the more modern-looking ones. Replacing the dresser drawer knobs is a great and inexpensive way to give a fresh look to any room.

I knew I wanted to put up some floating shelves in the nursery for decor. We saw these floating shelves at Pottery Barn and fell in love with the color. The color meshes well with the neutrality of the remainder of the room. I had fun putting my personal touch on some of the decor in the nursery. If you're looking for inspiration, Pinterest is a great source for many ideas.

The original plan was to DIY the stripe curtains. However, it didn't turn out as planned because the spray paint I used was too watery for this type of project. I ran out of time and am too lazy to try again. I gave up and bought these Studio Trio Grommet curtains. I am not 100% in love with them (they are a bit too shiny for my liking). I might replace them down the road but they're OK for now.

So, there you have it! We turned the exercise room into a cozy nursery for baby Madelyn. I hope you like it. I really wanted to create a space that would transition well into toddler years and beyond. The nursery is complete and ready. Now we just have to wait for her arrival =)
