A Project For
Yellow and Gray Nursery designed for a baby girl. Both Modern and Feminine
My inspiration was the gray owl stuffed animal that I found as soon as we found out we were pregnant. It was the first baby thing that I bought because even though we didn't know the gender, I knew I wanted to use gray in our baby's room . I love the different textures of this owl and I knew I wanted different patterns and textures in the nursery.
My usual decorating style in the rest of our house is country-rustic but I would describe my style for this particular project as Modern and Feminine.
Rug: Lighting Emporium, a local furniture store

Crib: Given to us by a family friend. It was originally dark brown and masculine, but we added a braided trim and painted it with chalk paint. Click Here to learn more about the crib project.

KARIS letters above the crib: This was a DIY project. I got the letters from Hobby Lobby (when they were 50% off of course) and I used scrapbook paper for the designs. After tracing each letter onto the paper, I used mod-podge to adhere the paper to the wooden letters. Then I added a lace ribbon to the back for hanging.
White Wicker Baskets: Hobby Lobby
I love too many items to just choose one as a favorite, but I think the items I like the best are the crib, book wall, and changing table wall because of all of the DIY projects and the time we put into making them. I also love the I AM HIS custom wall print.
Take your time and don't try to finish the whole room at one time. Spend a lot of time researching and planning. Shop around until you find the PERFECT item at the right price. There is no reason why you can't have the nursery of your dreams on a budget! :) The more patient you are-- the more satisfied you'll be in the end.
