Evie and Eliza’s Modern Twin Nursery


The tan walls were already there, so I did 3 coats of chalkboard paint on the main wall.  We used Ikea Gulliver cribs (love these!) and I made my own crib skirts.  I took a small table, spray painted it bright pink, and added some new hardware to add a pop of color in the center of the room.  The crib quilts are from a lovely woman on etsy (Kristin Bradford) who designed the elephant fabric herself!  She was great to work with and create coordinating quilts for each girl.  The silver shelf in the corner was my friend Heidi's.  I changed the hardware to match the night stand and used pink wrapping paper and spray adhesive to line the backs of the shelf.  The curtains and rug are from Crate and Barrel.  I found a tutorial on Pinterest to make the paper pinwheels for the mobiles.  I hung them with fishline and a small eye hook.  We just had to raise them last week after Eliza successfully ate one of the pinwheels!  Oooops! I used teal and yellow spray paint on a few random knickknacks throughout the room to help tie in the colors everywhere.  I also made yellow yarn pom pom flowers to put in a vase (another Pinterest tutorial!)  Each girl got a yarn wrapped letter for their name (Evie gets the pink flower, Eliza the purple).  I had the owl pillow on the rocking chair in Finn's room, but made the kite on a pink Ikea pillow cover with felt and embroidery thread.  The moon light is another Ikea find!  So is the dresser... new hardware makes the hand me down changing table and the dresser look like they go together.  All of the hardware was from Hobby Lobby.  My favorite piece of art on the wall above their changing table is one big brother Finn did.  I gave him yellow, pink and white paint and let him do whatever!  Sorry this is short... twins are climbing on the printer!  Better late than never...

Am I allowed to say everything?  It just all fits so well together...


a color theme was so much fun... don't be afraid to do different shades of a few colors throughout so the room doesn't look too matchy matchy

I love that entire wall converted into a big chalkboard. Can you imagine how it will look like a year or two from now? LOL.
