I wanted a nursery that my daughter could grow up in, not one that would always resemble a baby. She won't be little for long so I designed a nursery that she could grow up in or at least last until she was ready to design her room. I also wanted something that was vintage looking with a modern flare to it.
My inspiration for this project was the color palette. We had just moved in our house and painted her room mint green before I found out I was pregnant. I designed her entire room around that color so I didn't have to repaint.
My decorating style is vintage/modern. I like to combine a little old with a little new.
Dresser: Great Grandmothers, repainted
Twin Size Quilt: Serena and Lily (Instead of a crib blanket (which babies don't really use) I purchased a twin size quilt for when she got older.
Letters: Handmade by Mom
ABC Letters This is the tutorial for the letters not the actual letters themselves. The letters were hand made by mom.
The changing table, it was my great grandmothers buffet. I just sanded it down picked a paint color and repainted it. It was perfect for my theme.
Don't be afraid to mismatch furniture, repaint furniture, or do somethings yourself. Start early!
