My husband and I wanted to give our sweet baby girl on the way a sophisticated yet whimsical nursery that encouraged her to discover the world!
Transitional and eclectic
The accent wall is a world map I found on amazon.com.. made by National Geographic. When it came in it wasn't as "antiqued" as I wanted it to be so I purchased some wood stain rub from Home Depot and stained the map with a rag! The changing table is a second hand table from craigslist that I sanded down and painted black, the drawer fronts and the changing pad is covered in the same fabric that I used for the crib bumper, drapes, pillows, & wall flowers and it was only $9.99 as I used a King Sheet & Pillow set from Marshalls! Such a steal and got so much use out of it. The rest of the fabrics used (for the wall flowers, pillows, embroidery hoops & bed skirt) were from Joanne's. The bed crown is made from a shelf, red paint and two curtain panels. All you need to create it is a staple gun! The wall decor above the crib was made out of different sized embroidery hoops, white paint (for the borders) and fabric, The Grandfather Clock/ diaper cabinet was a second hand ($60) from a thrift store. We removed the parts, added shelves, sanded it down and painted it red. The Pom Pom's were created by my sister in law for our baby shower! Loved them so much I had to put them in the nursery! And last but not least, the "You Are My Sunshine" sign was made by my husband, Selah's Daddy... and truly says it all! :)
The Grandfather Clock/Diaper Cabinet is my favorite item! It was so fun to create and we can't wait to add the clock hands when we know the exact time Selah is born!
Go for it! When you have an idea never think it is too big or unreachable! You won't know until you try!
