I wanted a nursery that my daughter could grow up in, not one that would always resemble a baby. She won't be little for long so I designed a nursery that she could grow up in or at least last until she was ready to design her room. I also wanted something that was vintage looking with a modern flare to it.

Design Inspiration

My inspiration for this project was the color palette. We had just moved in our house and painted her room mint green before I found out I was pregnant. I designed her entire room around that color so I didn't have to repaint.

Decorating Style

My decorating style is vintage/modern. I like to combine a little old with a little new.

Project Details

Dresser: Great Grandmothers, repainted

Twin Size Quilt: Serena and Lily (Instead of a crib blanket (which babies don't really use) I purchased a twin size quilt for when she got older.

Letters: Handmade by Mom

ABC Letters This is the tutorial for the letters not the actual letters themselves. The letters were hand made by mom.


Favorite Items

The changing table, it was my great grandmothers buffet. I just sanded it down picked a paint color and repainted it. It was perfect for my theme.


Don't be afraid to mismatch furniture, repaint furniture, or do somethings yourself. Start early!

    These are very easy to make. They are made from paper mâché letters, scrap book paper of your choice and just different color paint for the sides of the letters.

    I am sorry I have just logged back on and saw this. I could make them, the paper would be different but I think that is what makes them each so unique.

    This room is beautiful! I would like to repaint my daughters nursery very soon and am having a terrible time finding the perfect mint color. I’m driving my hubby crazy w/the amount of paint samples I have tried only to decide they aren’t quite right. Have you been able to locate the paint can w/the name of this color? I absolutely love it and it would help me sooo much!

    Your picture #15…how could I do that myself?
    My girlfriend is having a gender reveal party and we wanted to use that as the guest book. Except we want to offer blue & pink so the guests can do that as their choice .
