A Neutral DIY Yellow and Gray Nursery


We wanted to do a neutral nursery because we did not find out the gender of our baby.

Design Inspiration

I looked a lot on Project Nursery for my design inspiration.  I also knew that I wanted to incorporate a rocking chair my late grandmother used.  I also wanted to do as many DIY projects as a could so I could really put all my love into this room!

Decorating Style

I like modern and clean styles.

Favorite Items

The rocking chair that I reupholstered and repainted myself.  It was my grandmothers who recently passed away.


I think DIY projects add character to the nursery.  If I did not know how to do something I watched youtube videos!  There are so many blogs as well that are inspirational!
