"Rate My Space" winner! :)

A couple of weeks ago, Keely over at MannLand5 posted that she was going to be doing a "rate my space" of kids rooms and nurseries. I have never participated in a rate my space before. I used to think that I had a streak of interior design in me but not at this time in my life. I don't have enough money, time, patience or magic erasers (due to having a toddler) to pursue a perfectly decorated home. I am, however, proud of Emersyn's nursery so I decided to participate and submit a couple of pictures.

Out of 8 rooms, I won!! I was so happy!!! :) I kept an eye briefly on the voting and it seemed like it was going to be close but then I saw Keely's post and felt a surge of happiness. I can be kinda competitive.... :)

Anyways, thanks for picking Emersyn's room those of you who voted! It was a labor of love. The striped wall was quite the effort and I am so grateful for a husband that was willing to carry out my vision. :)

Here are some more pictures of my sweet girls room.....enjoy!



We custom ordered these letters off EBay and painted them ourselves.

This was a dresser in our guest room that we decided would make a perfect changing table for Emersyn!

We made this mobile using little birdies from Pottery Barn Kids and a clearance mobile from Target that we took apart.

Found these prints on EBay that matched our bedding. Also ordered the custom photo maps off EBay.


I worked at Pottery Barn Kids the holiday season before I got pregnant and they kept me on a couple times a month. I was able to get our crib and all her bedding at PBK for 40% off, hallelujah! We also got her curtains, window hardware, and various other items too.

SO I TOTALLY LOVE HER ROOM!! i want to live in it!! hehe:D We have painting done on Mia's room and a few decor..but we were renting/then moving when we had her so it was hard. When we find out this baby's gender(next month!) I'm hoping it gives me enough time to pick up random things to decorate!!
glad you won-you def deserved it!!
