I wanted a calm, cool, clean, light, breezy feel for the room.
The bedding was where I started. I found fabric first and then found paint to match. You can find paint in ANY color.
I made the crib bumper with Velcro straps to connect it to the crib instead of ties because I was going for a clean look.
I also made the bumper in 2 equal pieces and made them connect in the middle. I connected them with a button and elastic. Again, going for a clean look.
I love how the dresser turned out! It started out as a dresser without legs. I added legs that I bought from Lowe's so it would be high enough for a changing table. Then added some left over baseboard to the bottom edge, to cover up the ugliness of the added legs and to give it a nice finish. Then some sanding and some purple paint. Oh, I removed the handles, painted them silver and slapped them back on.
We took down the closet doors, put up a silver curtain rod and added two layers of curtain. The top is a patterned sheer and the second layer is just white. So we can still "close" the closet.
This is my absolute favorite thing about the baby's room are the decorative pillows!
