- A Project For: Elleanor
- Age: 5 months
- Location: North Carolina
This is a fun nursery filled with DIY projects and thrift store makeovers. The budget was tight so we used things we already had and inexpensive treasures we found along the way. I played with patterns and textures to keep things sophisticated yet playful.

The inspiration for this room came from the yellow pouf in the room. I wanted it to be fun and playful, but also a space that would grow with her as she grows.
I have an appreciation for all decorating styles. I love clean lines and modern interiors, but I also love adding vintage elements and a little sparkle to my decor to keep things interesting.
This room was done on a pretty tight budget so I used a mixture of thrift store finds and DIY projects to achieve the look I wanted. I updated a hand me down crib with a DIY headboard. It gives the room a more sophisticated feel and keeps the crib from looking too plain. http://www.dwellingsbydevore.com/2012/01/crib.html

My favorite item in this room would have to be the DIY birdcage chandelier I made for the space. It's so fun and playful and my little one loves looking at it. Tutorial found here: http://www.dwellingsbydevore.com/2011/12/tweet.html
Don't be afraid of color, textures, and patterns. Mix things up to keep things from looking too packaged.
