When I began planning my daughter's nursery over a year and a half ago, I knew that I wanted the room to be fun, bright, and cheerful, but not too childish. I wanted the room to have the ability grow with my daughter over the next few years. Now that my daughter is one, I see that her nursery is everything I I envisioned it to be. It is such a cheerful space and my daughter absolutely loves it.
The inspiration for this project was an image I saw on a blog of a bright colored nursery.
I have a bold and eclectic decorating style. The nursery is reflective of that style.
Most of this nursery was DIY.
Dresser and Table: Craigslist and we refinished them
Glider: Hand me down from my sister and reupholstered
Crib: Floor model from a local furniture store
Bedding: handmade by my mother in law (crib sheet is from Target)
Bookshelf Tree: My husband painted the tree and made the shelves
Lamp: Vintage and recovered lamp shade
I can't choose one item, but if I had to I would say it is the tree that my husband painted. It really pulled the whole room together and gave it just the right touch of whimsy,
Just try to find one item that inspires you and use that as your stepping stone to plan the nursery. Websites such as Project Nursery and Pinterest are also super helpful.
