Honestly this was one of the hardest projects I've ever done, and for the most part I'm absolutely loving it. My husband played a very big part in the theme for this room, we spent a lot of time together DIY-ing everything and a lot of bantering back and forth about what should go in the nursery and what shouldn't... aka I had to draw the line at a real deer mount and a few others lol ... I wanted this room to be soft and still feel like a nursery. Trying to keep it from looking like a trophy room was well lets just say interesting haha. The first project we did was the hanging shelf and we actually based that project upon doing a navy and orange color scheme keeping the colors warm... and I just couldn't get my husband on board with the orange... and the navy actually just made the room way too dark. This space is TINY and has a very small window, so the lighting is terrible and after seeing the warm colors it was clear that we needed to go softer... SO if I could... aka If I had the energy... and hope to down the road... I would distress and white wash the hanging shelf to give it a softer "feel" as it's a little too dark for my liking but it'll do for now!
We really saved a ton by DIYing just about everything with the exception of the crib, chair and side table. I hope to find the time and energy to share our DIY's on my blog but we'll see how the next few weeks before baby play out.
UPDATE:Due to individuals using my design and re selling it as their own I will no longer be sharing the measurements for the barn wood back drop. I'm sorry if this has caused an inconvenience but it was not intended to be shared for those purposes
