I chose the wall color of the nursery before I knew the gender. When I found out 'it's a girl', it was an easy choice for me to do a painting of The Wizard of Oz because it's one of my all time favorite movies!!

I then chose the crib bedding based off the painting. I also fell in love with the rug!! It is like a patchwork quilt meets tile and will be able to transition with any wall color change.

Because I chose The Wizard of Oz to go in the nursery, my husband wanted to choose the next artwork that I did. He wanted me to do portraits of our dogs Stella (left) and Banjo (right). I also found that sassy antique doll at a flea market and I bought it one week before I found out I was carrying a girl and it wound up being the color scheme of the room.

The wall of artwork is one of my favorite elements in the nursery. It's a wall of nostalgia. I created a collage with my drawings from childhood in the top left, and the other child's drawing is one that my mother did as a child (who passed away 10 years ago), and the other illustrations were done by my daughter's great grandmother.

The changing table is also an antique kitchen cabinet with a metal top and the cabinet below holds tons of diapers and wipes! It helps to have things in specific bins to help with organization! I downloaded free vintage style tags to help label the items. I love the lighted globe to make a nice night light for the room to get the baby ready for bed.

Thanks Ginger! Readers, see Ginger's artwork here.
