Baby H’s baby/big girl nursery


Our girl's room is a little vintage, a little modern and just a little bit of everything:).  I really tried to create a space that would be transitional.  My hope is to be able to replace the crib with a bed in two years and call it a big girl room.  

Design Inspiration

The rug started it all off.  I bought that before I was even pregnant.  It was also the only brand new item I purchased for her space.  

Decorating Style

Eclectic.  I love mixing old with new.  

Project Details

This room is one giant mish mash of DYI projects.  Most everything was either purchased from Good Will, flea markets, craigslist or made from blog tutorials. We spent a lot of time repurposing pieces and were able to use a lot of what we had.  

Chevron Rug- Urban Outfitters online

Coffee filter wreath- from this tutorial on this blog..

birdcages- thrifted

Lamp- reused from our old living room, Lampshade was thrifted (originally from Target)

Dresser- Refinished piece from Craigslist.  Hardware is from lowes.

Crib- Jenny Lind, Craigslist find.

Crib Bedding- Restoration Hardware, Craigslist find

Three mirrors- Reused from my old dining room, originally from Crate and Barrel. 

Trunk- thrifted

Pillows- DIY, made with Amy Butler quilting swatches.  

Growth Chart- DIY

Milk Crate storage box- flea market find, added casters from Lowes to the bottom.

Giant Safety Pin- Hobby Lobby (Ballard has them too).

Pink chair- Pottery Barn Kids (Craigslist find)

Moroccan Pouf- Target, hand-me-down from my mom.

Favorite Items

The ruffled curtains are my favorite.  They made the room just girly enough for me.  


Decorate as you go.  Buy things as you see them.  Eclectic style does not happen over night, it happens over time (at least if you are on a budget, like me).

Just beautiful! What is the taupe color on the wall? I want to paint my living room that color, but am finding everything has either too warm or too cool of an undertone. This taupe color is exactly what I'm looking for.....

PS. I've been eyeing a very similar growth chart for a few wks now on etsy but can't fathom spending $75 for it. Can you post a tutorial on how you DIY this for us? What type of wood did you end up using?

I bought the piece of wood at Lowes.  It was pre-treated and already cut to size, 6 foot.  I just stained it with a dark walnut stain and then used a yard stick, paint pen and stencils put the lines and numbers on.  It was super easy.  The wood was 8 bucks and the stain was $5.  Definitely not worth the $75 from Etsy if you don't mind doing it yourself!
