Hayden’s Girly Teal Nursery


I wanted Hayden's teal nursery to be bright and girly.  I had a pretty tight budget, so I re-finished existing furniture, shopped thrift stores, and created my own art to fill the space.  I love how it turned out... the room feels cheery and welcoming.  Success!

Design Inspiration

The curtain fabric was my big splurge and my jumping off point.  I found this fabric at JoAnn's and I LOVED the colors!  I waited for the fabric to go on sale and bought an ample amount.  Luckily I had enough fabric for the curtains, the crib skirt and bumper.

Decorating Style

I would say my style is transitional and eclectic.  This nursery is more toward the traditional side, but the colors are definitely more modern and fun!

Project Details

Shop thrift stores!!!  All of the furniture in this room (except for the chair) was either free or REALLY inexpensive.  I focused on size and functionality of the furniture and then put my DIY skills to work to make the color and style work for the overall design.   The crib was actually my crib as a baby.  The side table belonged to my husband's grandfather.  I purchased the dresser at Salvation Army for $35!  (It was originally $70, but I waited to purchase it for their 50% off day.)  I purchased the bookshelf for $30 at Goodwill.  I LOVE a bargain!

Favorite Items

I love how the art vignette turned out above the rocking chair. Also, I am obsessed with the sweet bunny mobile (an Etsy find - only $30!) hanging over her changing station.


Keep functionality in mind as you design your nursery.... beyond that, just have fun!

Thanks so much Kaela!!! The crib sheets are from Babies R Us. The crib skirt and bumper were made by my mother-in-law and my friend @modernmommabear from fabric I purchased at Joanna. Follow me on Instagram @wilco_creative for more inspiration. I will be posting another nursery, Hayden's big girl room and the kids bathroom in the coming weeks! ?
