A Project For
Hazel's nursery is a mix of budget pieces, DIY projects, and vintage/ thrift store finds. We wanted to create a bright, cheery room without feeling like it was overly baby-themed. We wanted a space that could grow with her and be enjoyed for years to come!
The fabric for the pillow cover and crib skirt were really the starting point for Hazel's nursery. I loved the coral pinks and blues in it, along with the touches of gold, and tried to incorporate those colors throughout the room.

It's hard to pick just one, but I think my favorite items are the art work made by family members and the campaign dresser. We found the dresser in very rough shape at a local Goodwill for $25, painted it, and added 'legs' to make it easier to change diapers. It took a while to finish, but I think it's the statement piece of the room!
Don't rush to pull the room together. Finding pieces that you love and that fit in your budget takes time... I think the best rooms are a unique mix of high-end, vintage, and DIY projects!
