Nora’s Nursery


This whole process was entertaining & definitely filled my pregnant days with a lot of projects to pass the time. I wanted to create a space that was bright/inviting and colorful. Rather than limiting myself to a certain color scheme, I implemented a variety of colors.

Design Inspiration

One of my first projects was the yellow dresser. After I completed that, I let my mind flow from there!

Project Details

My main goal in creating this little haven for Nora was to  be queen of DIY and be very thrifty. Considering our budget, I had to be creative. Some of my favorite projects.....

-Frames above crib= $5, purchased at local thrift store & spray painted silver

-Dresser= FREE!(given to me by my sister) repainted yellow=$10  and new knobs=$35

-Bedding=$45, fabric found at

-Rocking Chair=FREE! (lovely sister once again) Fabric for cushions=$10 @

-Owl & Girrafe on bookshelf= $5 for fabric

Favorite Items

My favorite item would have to be the dresser/hutch. Brings a lot of color into the room.


You really can create anything on a budget if you are creative and do a little research

Yes, I'm replying a year late. Better late than never, right? Sorry! I madeNora's crib bumper using fabric from Joel Dewberrys meadow line, the flower fabric i am not sure of the designer. Hope this helps a bit
