I had so much fun designing my first child's room. I took everything I loved from the Project Nursery and put it all together. I did not want one theme for the nursery so I went with a little of everything. I hope that this room can grow with him too!
Project Nursery! I looked at tons of nurseries from the gallery and narrowed it down to two of my favs (Ethan's Room and A through Z)! From there, I picked my favorite things from both rooms and added my own special touches.
I loved the ABC wall I had seen here! I had also found vintage airplanes that I knew I wanted to incorporate.
I have a little bit of everything from a little bit of everywhere. My mother and I found the furniture for cheap and painted it all. My mother-in-law made the striped curtains. I picked up letters for the ABC wall along the way and odered what I needed to fill in from various online sites. The bedding is Skip Hop and the mobile came from Restoration Hardware. Everything else I pieced together as I found it.
I love the vintage airplanes, blanket my mother made, and ABC wall.
Start looking early! I did not spend a ton of money, but I did get inspired early which helped me to pull it all together over time. Also, I saved alot of money making things on my own (wall hooks, Emerson sign, growth chart, etc.)
