A Project For
I wanted a calm and sweet nursery for our first baby. We painted the walls a pale gray and added neutral details with a few pops of color. The furniture is a combination of new and vintage, mixed with some DIY projects. We did a lot of work ourselves, adding crown molding, a Dutch door and wall stencil and shelving in the closet. The room is small, so we maximized space by using a compact dresser as a changing table, removing the closet doors to make it feel bigger, and placing a round crib in the corner. A chandelier and closet lights helped brighten the room.
I was mostly inspired by bright, airy nurseries, and added some colored pieces at my husband's urging. Lots of Pintrest and Google searches!

I love everything, but the round crib is my favorite. We found it vintage, cut down the poles, painted it, and added some custom bedding. It turned out lovely!
Do lots of shopping at thrift stores to find the right pieces, and don't be afraid to use paint to make everything match.
