This is my son's nursery. We tried to decorate the room with a combination of whimsical and vintage, and stay on a budget!
I wanted to create a vintage inspired nursery with a combination of whimsical and fairytale theme. There are also pieces of this room that I can't explain, because it mainly has to do with our family's sense of humor for weird and unique art.
vintage, antique inspired, retro, and humorous.
We painted the walls of the room tan, and all of the wooden furniture is black. The crib is Jenny Lind (Ohbabystyle.com), and the dresser is an antique that we repainted. The glider (USABaby.com) is tan to match the walls. Accent colors are light blue, green and red. The majority of artwork was created by my husband and I, and also from a friend. The bedding (fabric from craftyplanet.com), curtains, and chair pillow were made by Josiah's grandma.

The majority of our furniture was either free (the dresser and bookcase), on clearance (the nightstand and crib), or given as a gift (upholstered rocking chair). Try it keep it cheap, make your own art work, and get creative with nick-nacks from places like Michael's or Joann Fabrics that you can spice up on your own. It's a lot more fun being able to look at what you created, and know how much you saved by doing it yourself!
