Garden for Eden…


a colorful budget friendly mix of previously loved furniture to make a sweet nursery in a rental home.

Design Inspiration

Since this is a rental home the color had to be on the furniture instead of the walls. The robins egg blue was inspired by nature and the raspberry pink and pale pink were the colors of spring and summer flowers... the touches of black were brought in to anchor the room and add depth..

Decorating Style

An eclectic mix, with a love of shabby chic and vintage style, casual and livable.

Project Details

All the furniture was purchased off of Craig's list or from Goodwill, 9 cans of spray paint later the crib was a gem and 3 cans of spray paint whipped the changing table into shape, the bookshelf was a Goodwill find and the ballet pink paint was leftover from a previous project. The flowers were made of tissue and hung seperatley from the cieling with colorful and white ribbon. The glider was also a Goodwill find. The removable butterflies were purchased from Target on clearance. The bedding was new and from Targets Dwell collection.

Favorite Items

I love the Jenny Lind crib, the Robins egg blue paint was just the icing on the cake!


There is so much great furniture out there just waiting for a facelift and to enjoy another life... go get it!

I LOVE this. I am trying my best to convince my husband to let me paint the hand me down furniture that we are putting in my son Ezra's big boy" room since he is moving out of the nursery to make room for his sister, who btw is also being named Eden. He has a florida Gator theme for his room and I think the dark blue and orange are way to dark for the walls of the already tiny room, and I don't want to have to try to cover that in a couple of years when we have another military move. I think the furniture is a great way to add the color without going overboard and it makes it so much more personal and special.

Is the crib set bought or made from fabric that you bought? I love the pink and hot pink combo and I have been looking for just that!
