It was so fun to create a little girl's nursery. We wanted it fresh, woodsy, clean, inviting, colorful and soft all in one. On a budget and in style.
The natural beauty where we live (Whidbey Island) is always throwing ideas into my head. How to create and what to use. I tried to use a what I had on hand.
Fresh, woodsy, natural, clean
Rocking Chair: Buy Buy Baby
Changing Table: Local Furniture store (on clearance).
Crib: My husband found at a Garage sale for $5. It is very vintage, was hardly used and has such charm to it.
The book holder is an old doll play crib that I found in FL at a Garage sale. I sanded, painted, sanded again, and refinished it. I love putting her books in it.
I made the Bed sheets (Timber Valley in Coral Brambleberry Ridge Collection, Michael Miller) and Changing Pad (cream herringbone minky). This enabled me to get exactly what I wanted style wise and it on our budget.
I also made and created the Wood signs, and wooden vase with the coral flower. I love these boards, I can place fresh flowers in the vase, and switch out the hello words whenever I'd like. They are my favorite.
Gold leaf was from my baby shower… it is a real leaf spray painted gold and placed in the thrifted and repainted frame.
The clip board was found in a FREE box at a garage sale… it was repainted, and I LOVE displaying her US pics on it.
We love going on walks on the beach here in Oak Harbor. While out one afternoon I collected the driftwood, found the perfect sizes at the beach then put it all together at home. It was FREE too. And I love displaying her blankets on it.
The dresser was given to us by a neighbor who thought I'd like to refinish it… However, I love the natural looking wood, it has such character and charm.
The large vase on top I found at our cabin in a junk yard (a little water and soap cleaned it right up).
The little mini vase is a baby jar (I love using them for multiple functions).
The sign was given to us at our shower.
The chalkboard frame was found at a thrift store. I had my favorite store Home Depot cut a piece of wood to size… painted black chalk paint on it and … wahla… a chalkboard. I love switching quotes out throughout the year.
I still have a few projects coming, a wood burned sign, a driftwood mobile, and pictures to be printed to go in the frames.
So many to choose from… But I LOVE the driftwood ladder (it reminds me of where we live), and the wooden boards. They are my favorite!
Let your minds run free with creativity. You'd be amazed what you can use that you already have around your house and where you live. DIY projects also save loads of $$$.
