Questions Answered

Sorry to leave y'all hanging but life got busy. Things will calm down for me in about a week and I'll get back here more often. But for now I just wanted to answer a few questions I got about Mia's Nursery.

This wall bookshelf came from Pottery-Barn-Kids. I wanted to display the adoption and China related books. But wanted something to keep them out of her reach while she's younger and hell bent on destruction. LOL!
The wall quote is vinyl and came from this Etsy shop. They were actually sold as two different quotes but I really liked them together. I contacted the shop owner and we custom designed this to fit the space and in the font I wanted. She was awesome to work with! I highly recommend them.
The flowers are plastic. I got them here. The idea is to place small tacks in the wall and the flower snaps onto it. I've also seen some that attach with magnets. But I live in an old house with plaster walls. I couldn't get the tacks hammered in without bending them. So I hot glued the flowers straight on the wall. Seriously I did. One will pop off every now and again. But I just dab on some glue and stick it back on. No damage to the paint and I can move them around without leaving all the little tack holes in the wall.
The cubbie system came from IKEA. It's an open unit. The drawers and cabinets are add ons. They can be configured however you like. The line is called Expedit and they have all kinds of different pieces including smaller shelving that you can actually hang on the wall, desks that can be attached, etc. It comes in different colors, too. Very cool piece, super sturdy and totally inexpensive. I'm thinking about changing out the knobs though. They seem too modern with the feel of the room. We'll see.
Thanks so much for all the compliments! And if anyone has any other questions about the products or ideas in the room, just ask in the comments here. I'm happy to share info. :)

This is the cutest room EVER! Just adorable. I especially love the plastic wall flowers... trying to figure out where I can squeeze them in on my girl's wall. Good work!

Your daughter's nursery is gorgeous - love the details and love put into this room! You are very talented - can't wait to see your precious daughter in her room! Please tell us where you got those cool baskets you are using in the Expedit - we have that too. Thanks. Also, you mentioned the cute flowers sometimes pop off - are any of them small enough to put in the mouth? Congratulations, Cindy
