Zeeka’s Nursery Room

And voila! It’s done ๐Ÿ™‚ I finally got around to picking up the last furniture that I ordered for Zeeka’s Nursery room last week. I ordered it from Mothercare a month ago and finally, the new stock arrived. It actually arrived that week that I was in the hospital. I got to pick it up last week! Hurray!

As you all know, I made an article before entitled Fixing a Nursery. I got a lot of great ideas from fellow moms who have decorated their nurseries very well. I was inspired!

I have shown you the ‘before’ pictures. And now, here are the ‘after’ pictures… drumroll please…

First off, the walls of Zeeka’s room was painted green. The shade was sort of like apple green. It gave the room a fresh clean vibe! For the crib, this was the walnut colored Cuddlebug crib given by my parents (thanks, mom and dad!). I wanted the all the furnitures to be of this shade. Later did I find out that it’s so hard to look forย furnitureย of the same shade.

For the picture frame, I got the pink colored frame from Dimensione. We then printed out a picture of Zeeka. We really had a ‘shoot’ in our house so that her attire matches the color highlights of the room. We also had the Z is for Zeeka poster printed out. I got the design from http://ontobaby.com.

For the wall stickers, we bought these stickers from Youji & Me. I saw these stickers on their facebook page and I completely fell in love with them. For the other wall, we also stuck stickers from Youji & Me. It was the Circus stickers with a sticker for measuring your child’s height.

As for the letters stuck to the wall, we had it made by Invitation House. The minimum order is 6 letters. I think I spent Php 1000 for all the five letters. I had two letter Z’s made.

For the clock in Zeeka’s Nursery Room, I got this from SM Makati’s Home section. I think I spent less than Php 500 for this clock. Isn’t it so cute?

I was looking for comforters that would match the theme of the room. Lo and behold! My tita gave me comforters for Zeeka! (Thank you, Tita Ter!). It was perfect. She actually gave me four, but this one in particular matched the design of the room!

The picture below shows the dresser that I got from Mothercare. It was perfect for the things I wanted to put, like Zeeka’s sterilizer, bottles, etc.

I love this gift from Zeeka’s great grandmother and great grandfather (Thank you, Mama Edie and Papa Arnold!). I was really looking for a cabinet with a lot of drawers for Zeeka’s things. I couldn’t find any. I was getting frustrated. I was so thankful when my grandparents offered that they had a cabinet customized and this would be their gift. It’s really a nice cabinet and it goes well with everything else in the room.

    Wow Ginger! Zeeka’s nursery looks amazing. The apple green color is so fresh and vibrant. Lovely. You put a lot of thought and care into this room and it clearly shows. Zeeka’s very blessed! ๐Ÿ™‚

      Hi Toni! ๐Ÿ™‚

      Thanks so much for appreciating it! ๐Ÿ™‚ I really thought long and hard about what to do with her room. I’m no interior decorator, but I love doing creative projects. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Thanks for visiting!

    1. dont you think comment forms should be replaced by FB comments? it makes me more likely to comment eh. in case you do that, please tell me what plug in you use.

    2. interesting way to hide the blinds. though I thought maybe someone else did that.

    3. nice wallpaper ? in the blue adjoining room.

    4. that’s the identical Ace Hardware paint we use for the kids room. ๐Ÿ™‚

    5. Ganda ng decals.

    6. How did you stick the letters to the wall and how soft is it in case it falls on the baby?

      Hi Jomar!

      Yeah, that is true! ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s makes it a lot easier to get comments from people. Okay, i’ll let you know if I do change my comments sections.

      For the blinds/curtains, we had the extension placed by the contractor/interior decorator. I had an interior decorator for the other parts of the house when we moved in last year. The rooms that were not decorated that time were the kitchen, bathrooms and this room of Zeeka. We didn’t know what to do with it back then ๐Ÿ™‚ hehe!

      For the blue wall paper, I chose that!!! ๐Ÿ™‚ *bow* A lot of people think nga that wall paper is so nice. I got it from Wall Crown at the Home Depot (BGC).

      Really? Same paint? Awwww, see, we both have good tastes! ๐Ÿ™‚

      For the letters, we just used double adhesive tape. It doesn’t take the paint out naman. The letters are just light so they stick easily ๐Ÿ™‚

      Very comprehensive observations, Jomar! ๐Ÿ™‚ Love it! ๐Ÿ™‚

      Thanks for dropping by!

    Green is really relaxing! Nice choice! I believe you shouls add a comfortable couch or a rocking chair where you can lull zeeka to sleep.

      Thanks for the tip, Eve! My hubby was telling me to get one. In the meantime, we stay in the living room or in the main bedroom then when she sleeps, we transfer her to her room ๐Ÿ™‚
