I am lucky enough to have a sister with amazing design and sewing talent. I gave her all my ideas, existing furniture, budget and she surprised me with the final result! Her challenge was working with a limited budget and making the room suitable for both a boy and a girl.
We were inspired by a few different ideas found online especially this one.... Gray and Yellow Nursery
Modern, Vintage and Budget
Bedding, Curtains, Bookholder: DIY Upholstered Headboard: Nurseryworks - a Craigslist score Crib: Babi Italia Scandi Crib - Craigslist Woodland Inspired Rug: DIY project inspired by this website. Framed Fabric Paperdoll Wall Hanging: Etsy Rocking Chair - Thrift store find. Hired a local seamstress to recover existing (ugly) cushions for $70. Completely worth it!
I absolutely cannot pick a favorite item! I love just sitting in the funky but oh so comfortable rocking chair we found at a thrift store and enjoying everything in the room.
Troll online tutorials, etsy, craigslist and real room project galleries to find inspiration. Create an Ideabook on Houzz to assemble all the ideas you find.
