My husband and I are anxiously awaiting our foster care license. I have created this nursery in preparation for 3-month-old infants through 5-year-olds. I tried to create something that would be appropriate for both boys and girls and a wide range of ages. Hopefully a little one will be using it soon!
I found the bedding and went from there. The room was already blue and I didn't really want to change it, plus it's kind of a gender neutral color.
I am a do-it-yourselfer. I like simple and comfortable.
I hand-painted the images on the walls with inspiration from the bedding. The little tree is located behind the door to the room. I plan on using it as a growth chart/scrapbook to document the children who come and stay with us. Every time we look at it we will be reminded of all the memories in the room.
I love the dresser/changing table combo...great for storage and a space saver. I need as much space as I can get since we need to put a twin bed and a crib in the room to be prepared for a wide age range.
I plan on using the window frame as a picture frame for photos of the children's birth parents.
Get inspiration for your rooms by looking through magazines and searching the web. I looked around a lot before starting.
