Our nursery was inspired by Pottery Barn Kids' Daisy Garden bedding set. We love gardening and daisies are my favorite flower, so as soon as we saw the bedding, we fell in love. We wanted the nursery to be colorful and very playful. We also wanted to make sure that it wouldn't be outgrown quickly.

We used Behr paint. The lower half of the room is painted to resemble grass. We used green for the bottom layer and then let it dry. We painted a lighter green over the top of it, and while it was still wet, we randomly whisked a wicker brush through it. I had never seen this technique used before, but I think that it worked out really well.

We also hand painted the chair rail. The grooves were already cut out when we bought it from Home Depot, but we painted it with little fuschia dots.

We have the Munire Newport crib which we bought from USA Baby. We also have the matching Munire nightstand, and combination dresser and hutch. This was also bought at USA Baby. The glider is also from USA Baby and it is made by Best Chair.

As mentioned above we used the Daisy Garden bedding from Pottery Barn Kids. Almost all of the accessories that we bought are from Pottery Barn Kids as well. This includes the window treatments (valance and curtains), the pink gingham lamp shades, the baskets on the hutch with green gingham liners, the butterfly mobile, and the two mirrors that are on the wall.

The growth chart is handmade and

was bought on Etsy from Growinlikeaweed. The letters spelling her name are from AC Moore.

The wine bottle night light on the nightstand is handmade by my mom. It is made out of accessories from my wedding.

The flowers and clouds on the wall are completely hand made. Find out how Kelsey put together her handmade nursery flowers and clouds here.

Our essential goodies are stored in baskets in the hutch. My husband and I also designed the closet in order to get a lot of storage space out of it. We have a lot of cubes and baskets in there. We also have shelves for books, shoes, and bath necessities.

I would say it took at least 100 man hours to complete our daisy garden nursery. The hardest part was actually painting the chair rail, but I think that it really brings the nursery together.

We had a lot of fun with this. I think that my favorite part was seeing it all come together though because we made all of the pieces of the flowers separately and didn't see them come together until they went on the wall. I was really afraid that they weren't going to live up to the expectation that I had of them in my mind, but they did and I LOVE them.

If you want to use a flowery nursery theme to decorate a baby nursery for your little girl try using one of these gorgeous floral crib bedding sets as a starting point...
