When I found out I was pregnant I was super excited about designing our nursery! As an Interior Designer I worked on a lot of showrooms and kids’ rooms were always my favourite part. You have so much more creative freedom in children’s spaces and you can get away with more adventurous colour schemes too! The sad part was that when the time to finally design our own nursery I was too sick to really enjoy it and I couldn’t do all the things that I had planned. I did still manage to put together a simple room on a budget that was perfect for our little guy.
Striped Art – I bought two Ikea Lack tables on Black Friday, threw away the legs, and painted on the stripes and animals with acrylic paint.
Fox Art – My mom gave me the collage frame and created the “woodgrain animal tracks” in Photoshop. I removed the glass from the centre frame and added the wood fox that my sister-in-law found at Superstore.
Deer Art – I created the artwork in Photoshop and added it to an old Ikea frame I had in my basement.
Mobile – I adapted a Wood Painting Kit from Target, punched holes in the tops of the birds and hung them from dowels using fishing line.
Closet Organizer & Bins – I covered the front of the bins with a fabric that I found at a local quilting shop.
