Turquoise, Yellow, Green and Orange create a fun and comfy gender neutral space.
I really wanted a space that was warm and comfortable for the baby, but also be able to grow into it through the years. I wanted to avoid using the themed bedding found in chain stores, and create a unique room just for Baby Fountain. I found a lot on inspiration on Pinterest!
The walls are Honey Beige from Lowe's which really helps with the light in the room.
Orange Lamps - IKEA
Green and shear curtains- Target.
Glider cushions- Taterbabies on Etsy.com
Turquoise crib skirt- Nepeto on Etsy.com (they have great solid color crib bedding options!)
Changing pad cover- LittleOwlsNest on Etsy.com
Boppy Pillow cover- LuLuBeesMarket on Etsy.com
Yellow Rug- Amazon.com
The ribbon mirror, paper lantern mobile, and bow/picture holder were DIY projects.

The glider and the mirror are my favorites! They were both big projects for us, and they turned out just how I wanted them to.
If you're on a budget, be flexible about the look of your furniture. Between the crib, glider, dresser we only spent $10! The crib was given to us used from a friend of a friend, the glider was purchased at a garage sale, and the dresser was another item that a friend was purging. We could have painted all three, but decided to just redo the glider (it REALLY needed some love) and leave the rest.
I used Etsy.com to find items really captured what I wanted. You don't have to settle for the same old things found at big chain stores! Pinterest is a great place to find inspiration too!
This is still a work in progress, so feel free to leave suggestions, tips and hints in the comments below. Thanks for looking!
