Description

I worked really diligently on this nursery because I wanted to create a space for my son that is colorful, enjoyable and relaxing to be in, and that would foster his sensory development and creativity.  I also wanted it to be able to transition easily to toddler and childhood, and to not start out too babyish.  I guess that's a pretty tall order, but I am pleased with how it came out.  We tried to keep the budget very small, and most of the furniture was either given to us or repurposed from some other part of the house.

Design Inspiration

I looked quite a bit at Project Nursery, and a little bit at Etsy and Pinterest.  Many of the items were also inspired by daycares that I frequent, and most of the books and stuffed animals were saved from my childhood.

Decorating Style

Fun, humorous, whimsical maybe?  I am not sure how to describe it!

Project Details

  1. Crib:  I don't know; it was given to us by good friends
  2. Cabinet: Target
  3. Dresser and screen: Repurposed from another bedroom
  4. Glider/ottoman: Craigslist find
  5. Artwork: The crayon art was DIY.  Some of the photography was purchased and some I took myself.   The name behind the crib came from a website called Frame the Alphabet.
  6. Crib bedding: My mother helped me make the crib sheets (read: my mother made them from fabric I purchased; I helped a little but tried not to get in the way too much!); the skirt was from Buy Buy Baby.
  7. Sheepskin rug: Amazon.com

Favorite Items

I have a lot of favorite items, and it's really hard to pick just one!  I love the crib sheets because they're fun and my mother helped me with them, the sheepskin rug because it's so comfortable, and a couple of other details (the row of chicks and the nose/eyeglasses) that I saved from childhood.  I think they make the room fun and not too serious!
