A Thrift Store Nursery for Rose


A peaceful vintage nursery for our daughter Rose with hand-me-downs, Craigslist finds, and thrift store treasures.

Design Inspiration

Our limited budget inspired us to use things we had around the house and to find cheap vintage accents at local thrift stores.

Decorating Style

Cottage style I guess or maybe "clean vintage"

Project Details

Thrift shops and garage sales are a budget's best friend when decorating. Also, think about updating items you already have in your house.

Favorite Items

Probably the re-finished dresser. I was scared to use the bold color at first but am so glad I took the plunge. It adds so much fun to the room without overtaking it--like painting the walls might have done.


Think neutral background and fun, meaningful accents. Everything doesn't have to match perfectly but having a color scheme can help guide you when scouring the endless and cluttered thrift store shelves.

I love the thrift-look!  Where did you find that rug?
