- A Project For: Kyleb
- Age: 3
- Location: Omaha, NE
This is the nursery I created for my son Kyleb. He's now 3, and it's been transformed ito a "big boy" room - which was the whole point of the room. I wanted something cool & modern for a baby boy that could be easily transformed into a room he could grow in up until High School.
We live in Nebraska - and I wanted to create a "surf" themed room - something you're not normally going to see in the midwest.
Modern, Contemporary, Clean Lines, Ecclectic
All paint came from Lowes, and I painted the stripes by just taping everything off and doing it myself. The rocking chair & changing table were painted with the same paint as the walls to match. (Changing table was white & belonged to my daughter first.. rocking chair was mine when I was a baby back in the 70's). Crib, Dresser & End table are from the "Urban" collection of Munire. Ceiling fan was light woon & brushed nickle - and again - just hand painted to match the walls and resemble "surf boards".
The ceiling fan - it was fun and something I did at the last minute!
Just go crazy & be creative. Re-purpose things.. don't spend a fortune trying to buy everything. I had trouble finding a crib dust ruffle in solid red - so I just bought a fleece blanket for $10 and cut the corners so it fit on the frame. I couldn't find a red bobby cover, so my sister-in-law sewed one for me with the left over fabric. The "Ky's Surf Shack" sign was actually a green palm tree that came with the bedding, but didn't match. I just painted over it to make it work with the room. Go crazy on eBay & Craigs list - you can find tons of things that can be re-worked to fit your room & design!
