After finding out that I was pregnant with a Girl, it didn't take long before jumping right into decorating her nursery. I wanted to create a space that could grow with her, as well as would be calming, feminine and simplistic, all done on a very small budget.

Living in military housing, we were not able to paint any of the walls, so adding personality and character to a very blank slate of a room with white walls was a challenge. I knew that I wanted to go with a shabby chic feel, so my first step was to find a crib and furniture to set the mood for the base of the design.

Design Inspiration

When designing my daughter's nursery, I wanted a design that would grow with her and also incorporated special family vintage items heirlooms into the decor, all while sticking to a budget!

You can find out how we created this shabby chic nursery on a small budget along all of the details of her nursery and DIY's over on my blog: HERE

    How did you make the flowers on lamp shade? Do they need rolled first then made into circle? How much fabric was used on this if you remember?

    Just found this site. I LOVE everything about your nursery. I have searched for the bedding, but can’t seem to find it. I have found shabby chic in full size, but not crib size. Do you know if they have discontinued it? Is it the shabby chic brand? Thanks!

    The bedding is discontinued, but I found it on Varage Sale in my area (but no bumper). Then I was able to find the bumper on Craigslist in a different state. I contacted the seller and they were willing to mail it to me! Search hard and someone somewhere will be selling it. :)

    Jennifer Ciani- what color blue did you use to paint the armoir? I’m painting a dresser to match the bedding and looks like you nailed it! Thanks!! Such a beautiful nursery!!
