I wanted something that had no theme and lots of colour. Something you did not see in every nursery. I wanted to craft as much as I could, and pay as less as I could.

Design Inspiration

At first, I just selected a colour pallet and went with that.

Decorating Style

I like things that punch and that do not necessarily match. I like complicated things, that make you go "wow"!

Project Details

Bed: I used a child's cover that I sewed to an old baby crib set piece I had:

I used tule for the crib skirt; I simply added a ribbon to the border, with velcro to make it stick to the crib

For the lamps, I used the sun bought from ikea to hide a hole in the ceiling:

For the other one, I bought a simple lampshade, and ordered clear plastic balls from ebay:

I got the sticker from DeSerre:

The baskets and boxes on the wall come from Ikea, really cheaper than shelves!

I did the little carpet with old T-Shirts, using this DIY tutorial:

Same thing goes for the little flowers on the walls!


Without counting the 3 pieces of furniture (I got the crib as a gift, the white furniture is one I had when I was a kid, and the brown one is an inheritage from my grandma) I paid a total of approximately 200$.

Favorite Items

I think even though I did not make it, I love the sticker! She has brown eyes, just like my little girl, and she is farting hearts ... which I still find funny at 27 :)


Don't be scared to use colours, lots of colours! Even if at first something is not exactly the colour you wanted, if you like it, go with it!

    That wall sticker flying with a giant flower is adorable. I bet it would look a lot better if set against an all-white wall.
