Description

My husband and I are anxiously awaiting our foster care license. I have created this nursery in preparation for 3-month-old infants through 5-year-olds. I tried to create something that would be appropriate for both boys and girls and a wide range of ages. Hopefully a little one will be using it soon!

Design Inspiration

I found the bedding and went from there. The room was already blue and I didn't really want to change it, plus it's kind of a gender neutral color.

Decorating Style

I am a do-it-yourselfer. I like simple and comfortable.

Project Details

I hand-painted the images on the walls with inspiration from the bedding. The little tree is located behind the door to the room. I plan on using it as a growth chart/scrapbook to document the children who come and stay with us.  Every time we look at it we will be reminded of all the memories in the room.

Favorite Items

I love the dresser/changing table combo...great for storage and a space saver. I need as much space as I can get since we need to put a twin bed and a crib in the room to be prepared for a wide age range.

I plan on using the window frame as a picture frame for photos of the children's birth parents.

Advice

Get inspiration for your rooms by looking through magazines and searching the web. I looked around a lot before starting.

    Wow you handpainted those bees and flowers? They are really cute. I also like the color of your wall. What exact shade of blue is that?

    Bless your hearts for wanting to become foster parents!!  This room is fabulous.  It’s very cozy and calm (just what a foster child would need!) I love the bees, the faux window and the saying above the crib.  Well done!

    I think it’s very wonderful of you and your husband to be very willing and eager to foster care. Kudos to that! And it’s really nice of you to prepare a room that’s gender neutral and that’s appropriate for kids aged 3 months to 5 years. You did a great job setting up this room.

    Thanks everyone for your comments. Unfortunately, I painted the room about 5 years ago, so I don’t remember if it had a name….it’s sort of a grayish-blue color.

    Did you have a stencil you used for the wall paintings? I am doing my baby nursery in the bumble bee theme. I actually have the exact same bedding as you! I am now looking for wall decor for the nursery. Please Help!
