I designed this nursery little by little when I was pregnant with my little one. I had an idea of the colors I wanted - pink, blue, and green - and just added pieces as I found them.
The inspiration was the baby blanket I made a few years ago for my future baby girl (I was sure I would have one eventually!). It is draped over the chair in the photo. I just love the colors and pattern. I wanted a room that wasn't too girly or cartoonish, but simple and colorful.

I made the crib skirt using this tutorial, and the bunting using this one.
The dresser I found on craigslist years ago, and repainted it and added crystal knobs. The changing table was a hand-me-down, and was custom made I believe. The several baskets around the room, as well as the pink "C" are from Ross.

The glider, by far! I got a great deal on it and use it several times a day for nursing and reading stories to my baby. I also love the bunting and crib skirt. I made them and they just add so much color and fun to the room.
I had no idea what the finished project would look like, but I just added stuff I liked as I went along, and it turned out great! Just choose a color scheme and find pieces you are drawn to that fit within that color scheme. Have fun with it!
