A Room for Remy


This project had a strict budget so most of the items were DIY. I did not want her nursery to have a theme, because I am always changing things! The room was small so I tried not to go overboard with a lot of different colors and focused on small details for character. I hope it is a room she grows up to love! :)

Design Inspiration

The wall color. I loved the light robins egg blue I was seeing everywhere and knew I had to use it. We actually chose the color before we knew we were having a girl. All the other accent colors are colors I thought went well with the blue.

Decorating Style

DIY. I love to make things and am always looking for a new project. My house is full of DIY projects so her room was no exception!

Project Details

  • The crib is fromWalmart Online and is the Baby Mod Modena. It can be used as a toddler/full bed as she gets older.
  • The crib skirt was made from old curtains I made for the living room out of Amy Butler fabric.
  • The mobile was made by me, with the wire hanger purchased off Amazon.
  • The stacking toy was also made by me using the Happy Stacker Ring Toy pattern.
  • I painted the diaper pin on the wall
  • The hanging baskets are from TJ Maxx
  • The changing table is from IKEA. I painted it white and made the pad for it.
  • I also made the plaster "R" using this tutorial
  • The yellow mug is from Anthropology
  • The lamp is from Target and was a steal at $11.00!
  • The sheepskin rug is from IKEA
  • The wall color is Benjamin Moore Robins Nest at 50%
  • The curtains are from Target, but I attached the yellow pom pom trim myself.
  • The floor pouf was another steal from Target, on sale for only $15!
  • The alphabet art was made by me. I painted the inserts with chalkboard paint and used chalk for the letters. The frames are from IKEA.
  • The bird wall art is from Etsy

Favorite Items

My favorite item is the canvas with her footprints. We are going to do them every three months. I think it will be amazing to see how her feet grow :)


Have fun and do what you like!

    I got the canvas from hobby lobby (download the app on your phone for 40% off coupon!) and then I painted it coral.

    love your nursery!! where did you purchase the coral canvas? Did you make it?! thank you

  3. I just love all the whimsical details you’ve added to this room. But you know what the most statement-making piece is? It’s the footprint art. It’s simple, yes it’s very stunning because it’s a big canvas and all the rest of the space is blank. And while I like the plan of having her footprint taken every 3 months, I kinda love it just the way it is now.
