- A Project For: Hayes
- Location: Arkansas
We repainted our walls and trim, repainted an old dresser, built a bookcase, purchased a rug/curtains/crib and filled our space with bright colors.
I used www.projectnursery.com for a lot of my inspiriation including color palate. From there I decided on a look that would be clean, yet visually appealing. Gray walls with white trim and crib it was. I knew I wanted accents that would grab your attention against the muted background.
I tend to draw toward modern decorating styles. I always allow for ecclectic, though. If there is any particular piece that I'm interested in I will always go for it, whether it "fits in" with my theme or not.
- Barn wood bookcase made by my amazing husband
- Repainted dresser from my husband's grandmother with new hardware purchased from Hobby Lobby
- Unfinished rocker purchased by my parents and finished with a custom stain to match his crib
- Fabric "Foxy Baby" bunting made by a good friend
- Fox and foxy baby throw pillow made by another good and crafty friend
Rug: Home Depot; shag rug that comes in a large variety of colors and patterns (ordered in-store)
Curtains: clearance/discontinued from www.anthropologie.com
Crib: Delta from Babies R Us http://www.toysrus.com/product/index.jsp?productId=10957612&searchURL=true
Bedding: white and gray zig zag sheet with white crib skirt http://www.babybedding.com/white-and-gray-zig-zag-crib-sheet
Vinyl wall decal purchased from a local sign mart
Various items from Target: ottoman, clock, navy mat, storage bins on top of dresser
My favorite item would have to be my husband's hand-made bookcase constructed from old barn wood. I had been going on and on about how I was needing a bookcase. I had looked in several flea markets because I was just wanting something I could repaint, nothing special. I came home from work one day to this amazing bookcase that will now be a family heirloom. I absolutely love it!
Don't be afraid to reuse furniture and involve your crafty friends! Also, take your time. I always get in such a hurry to get a project done, but this time it was really nice to let things happen over an extended period of time. It allowed me to find things in places I'd never expected.

Project By: Lindsey
My husband Jimmy and I are expecting our first child in July 2012. A sweet little boy to be named Hayes. We have been preparing for him for months and can now proudly say that we are through with his nursery and ready to show it off. With inspiration from www.projectnursery.com and a tremendous amount of help from a handy husband, crafty/creative friends, and other various gifts from various friends and family it has all come together to make the nursery of my dreams. It's exactly what we wanted and we couldn't be happier with it!
