This coral and aqua nursery was so much fun to put together. The only things that were purchased new in the room were the crib and the glider. Everything was either repurposed or handmade. The bedding, baby mobile, pillows, pennant flags, and blanket ladder were all made by my husband and me. All the shelves, picture frames, elephant, giraffes, mirror, toy chest, and changing table were repurposed. A little TLC and some paint goes a long way. We either had them laying around the house, got them at thrift stores, or bought them ridiculously cheap on sale.
I used Pinterest for a lot of my inspiration. I wanted something light, bright, beautiful, and really girly.
I love old pieces that are given a contemporary feel. Who says old can't be new?!
Dresser: Thrift Store
Bedding: Handmade by Me
Chalkboard: Repurposed Silver Platter
Ladder: Handmade by the Hubby
My favorite item would either have to be the repurposed changing table or the baby mobile. The dresser was a thrift store find that my husband and I painted and added new hardware to in order to make it the changing table. It was the first thing in her nursery before we even knew she was a girl. The baby mobile was the first thing I made as soon as I found out she was a girl. I love it, and so does Zoey.
Don't feel like everything has to be brand new! I reused probably 2/3 of the decorations in this room. Paint and a little work goes a long way!
