I created a girly glamorous nursery in mint blues, rose pinks & touches of gold. Most everything in the nursery was a DIY project or a thrift find. I wanted it to feel girly and eclectic, using pieces that meant a lot to us! My husband was amazing and helped bring my vision to life for this room!

Design Inspiration

I really just wanted a girly room without a 'theme' and wanted it to be a room we could enjoy being in. I've been obsessed with gold lately and knew I wanted to weave that in somehow without overwhelming the room. I'm not a big 'pink' person so I painted the walls in a pale mint blue to allow the pink to show up in fun pops of color in the dresser & bedding.

Decorating Style

Colorful, eclectic & distressed chic.

Project Details

Most things in the room were DIY projects- either given a makeover or built from the ground up.

The crib was leftover from my son's nursery and given a fresh coat of white paint to spruce it up. I found the pink herringbone fabric online and had a friend make the bumper pads. I made the crib skirt with ruffled pink fabric.

The rocking horse & rocking chair were both thrifted finds for under $10. Spray paint & vinyl were the main things behind their makeovers.

The rocking chair was a Habitat restore find for $20. We had it reupholstered and added DIY sewn pillows. The ottoman was from Target. Both the lamp and little table were from Garden Ridge and given paint makeovers.

The pink dresser was a craigslist score and hand-painted in rose pink enamel paint. The monogram box on the dresser was a DIY project and the white & gold tray was from Target.

Hubby made the bow holder behind the door and I painted it up in gold & white stripes.

I designed & printed all three prints above the dresser and used frames from Hobby Lobby to display them.

All the wall art in the room was handmade by me, including the distressed signs on either side of the crib. The lumber was found in my dad's barn and I used them to create mint & white distressed signs using nicknames my husband uses for us girls.

The bench was a coffee table I made over with paint & a few stripes.

Favorite Items

Definitely the newly reupholstered, tufted chair. I'm still stunned with how we found it and it's such a treasure to me! I can't wait to rock baby girl in it for all the nights to come.


My advice would be to not settle with the first things you find or something that just looks ok. Spend the time to hunt down things that really make you happy and feel perfect in the space. I spent several months finding just the right piece to complete a part of the room and I'm so glad I did! Keep hunting and don't give up :)

    What size is the actual monogram and then the wooden piece behind it? I am wanting to do something similar for my little girls room I just don’t know what size to do. I don’t want it to be too big or too small.
