Handmade With Love Nursery


This is a room for our first child.  Almost everything in it is handmade by myself, my husband or my friends and family.  We started with the rug from overstock and everything else slowly fell into place.  Lots of hand me downs, everything yellow was built by my grandfather.  The dresser/changing table was a craigslist  find painted white by my husband.  All the decor on the walls are original pieces by me or friends/family.  My husband made the curtain rods from sticks he found in our backyard.  The ottoman was an etsy find.  The walls are behr canton jade.  This was the first time I've ever decorated a room from start to finish and I loved doing it!  Now we just need the baby! :)

So hard to pick just one thing! it changes every week.


Have an idea of what the completed project to look like. Don't let anyone talk you out of your vision.  Paint colors are always darker on the wall than the sample
