Calvin’s Modern Blue and Gray Nursery


Modern blue and gray nursery with DIY accents

Design Inspiration

I found bedding I liked and based the nursery colors off of that. I wanted the room to have modern and metallic accents.

Decorating Style

Modern and DIY

Project Details

Name above the crib is a DIY project: Print out large letters in a bold font and cut them out. Trace the letters on the wall, then hammer nails in the shape of each letter. Tie a piece of yarn on one nail and weave the yarn throughout the letter.

DIY IKEA hack-spice racks painted and used as book shelves

DIY nursery signs- "you are my sunshine" sign designed on my computer, printed out and then mod podged onto a canvas. "adventure is out there" sign designed on my

computer and printed off

DIY pegboard above the changing table

DIY hospital/nursery sign on nursery door- painted two canvas' and attach with ribbon. You leave it blank and take it to the hospital. Once your baby is born fill out the details and hang it on your hospital door, then bring it home for their nursery!

    We absolutely love Calvin’s nursery :) We made a peg board very similar to yours above our changing table…. where did you find those wire baskets that the diapers are in on the peg board? We have looked high and low!

    Thank you :)
