Jessica’s Room

Here is Jessica’s room. I have 2 terrific friends who helped me design it and an awesome mother who helped me to finish up the quilt and curtain. I’m really happy with how it turned out, I love going in there!

Here is her closet. Ritchie put in those modular shelves/drawers and they’re great. I want some for my closet.

Can you find the hiding cousin?
(the frame is from my shower-people wrote nice things on the mat and then I need to put a little picture of Jess in the middle)

Jess still sleeps in our room but we usually go in her room during the day to read or rock. It’s pretty cozy. I ordered a slipcover for the purple recliner but I once I got it in there I didn’t mind the purple so much. I can’t decide if I want to change it up or not.

Here’s a closeup of her crib, bumper pads and dustruffle.

This is the finished quilt and curtain. It was my first attempt at machine quilting so I’m grateful my mom was here to help me through it.

Here are the flowers. Emily and I experimented with the design and execution for a few weeks. In the end, I bought some silk flowers, dismantled them and then glued pieces back together. I covered buttons with the material from the room and then used those little velcro stickers to get them to stick to the wall. I will be able to take them off entirely or move them if I need to.

I never would’ve been gutsy enough to do this room on my own so I’m grateful for Emily’s tireless efforts on my behalf. I had a great time working on it and I hope Jess loves it as much as I do!

(Lisa, I hope these pictures were worth the wait:)

  1. I think it will be worth the wait. So glad that it's all put together and looking absolutely wonderful. I'm sure Jess will spend lots of happy hours in there.

  2. WAY CUTE!!! Fit for a sweet princess like Baby J.Thanks for finally posting them! 🙂 I love the curvy bumper pads. And the paint. And the flowers on the wall. And the chair rail. And everything about it. I would go in there lots too. It is a happy little room.

  3. Finally room pictures! It looks like something out of a magazine. I love the closet (looks like she won't need clothes for awhile) and the walls too. Great job! And VERY kissalble cheeks in the previous post!

  4. What a beautiful room for a sweet little girl to enjoy for many years to come. You are very creative and talented and never sell yourself short! Great job!!

  5. Ok, I totally missed this blog…I can't believe it! It's SOOO cute! That girl's got a bigger closet and more clothes than me too! When I see this and what Lisa can do with her girls' rooms I get so jealous! I feel like Evie's getting jipped because I can't do something like that for her! Anyways, I LOVE it…and I love that dark wood, that's like what we picked out. I wish we could have an awesome changing table like that. I LOVE those walls and the quilt, I'm really impressed. Way to go.
