My project was to create a fun and unique nursery for my second son using everything from my first son's nursery.
My inspiration was pinterest projects and fabric that I fell in love with.
My style was up-cycled and vintage.
The crib, dresser and rocking chair were all from my first son.
The bedding and crib skirt were made by my fabulous mom using fabric I ordered from Hawthorne Threads.
The ladder was from my grandpa and I found it in my mom's garage.
The name letters were purchased from Michaels and covered with fabric using fabric modge podge.
The teal table was originally bright pink and bought for $2 at a garage sale. My husband painted it using Vintage Teal by Valspar...love it!
The pennant was a DIY project using fabric scraps and twine rope.
The window box frame was made out of wood by my amazing hubby and then I covered it with batting and fabric using a staple gun.
The mobile was another DIY made from fabric scraps, fabric modge podge, white ribbon I had at home and sticks from our wedding.
The lamp was old and dusty sitting in our basement....nothing a little fabric and modge podge couldn't fix up!
The bins on the dresser were also up-cycled from my first son's nursery by using my two best friends (fabric and modge podge).
The window on the wall was found sitting curbside on garbage day. With a little cleaning it was good as new and I plan on putting pictures of the little man behind each pane once he's here.
My favorite part of the whole nursery is the ladder above his crib. This ladder was my grandpa's so it has a lot of meaning and I just love the way his name looks in it!
Find fabric that you love and use it however you can. There is nothing that you can't up-cycle and make better the second time around.

I am a 4th grade teacher, mom to an amazing 3 year old boy and soon-to-be mom to another baby boy! I really wanted to make this nursery an up-cycled DIY project and that's what I did! I'm not that crafty, but with the help of my mom and pinterest it was easy!
