Kalia's nursery was not completed until she was about 7 months old. We moved when she was 3 months old, so I nested for nearly 15 months before I could start decorating! The room is filled with many DIY projects, pretty much the only things I did not alter were the crib, rug and the glider.
I wanted a vintage, clean space that could grow with her from babyhood onward.

Hard to pick one! The gallery wall was such a labor of love- finding the frames, picking the art... but I also love her dresser and trunk too!
Patience! If you allow enough time and patience, you can find items you have been searching for- the dresser took me two months to find, but I love it!
Do not be afraid to do things yourself, her nursery was my first time redoing furniture, creating art, and much more, I made mistakes, (some things may be crooked ;) learned a lot and created a space we enjoy.
Between the DIY projects and the Craigslist finds, we were able to save a lot of money and I never felt like we sacrificed the overall design and look I was going for.
Thank you so much, that is so sweet!
I do admire your talent and I wish that I had the same talents as you do. Sigh. Great work on this room.
Hi Rebecca! Thank you for your comment! I actually found a white in the “oops” pile at Lowe’s so it was just a lucky find and not the intended color on can, so I do not know the color. I used a matte white spray paint on the handles. I included the link in the post on the makeover project for the dresser.
Good Luck on your nursery!!
Hi I was wondering what color you used to paint your dresser? I just bought one for my little girl nursery and am searching for the perfect color!
Hi Marissa! Thank you! The frames for the galley wall were craigslist and eBay finds, I included the link in my post on how I found them.
The Hobby Lobby frames are in the second to last picture and hold the flashcard letters K A S.
