Our DIY Neutral Nursery


My husband and I are expecting our first child this November and couldn't be more excited! After deciding we didn't want to find out the sex of our baby, I had to think up something gender neutral for the nursery. I am in love with the end result!

Design Inspiration

The inspiration started with some bedding I found at Babie's R Us. It is cute owl bedding! I have always loved owls, but am really in love with aqua at the moment. After deciding on those two themes, the rest of the nursery just fell into place

Decorating Style

I don't know if I have a decorating style....I love anything bright, colourful and fun!

Project Details

espresso crib and dresser: SEARS, rocking chair, light and pictures shelves: IKEA, bedding: BABIES R US, and lots of DIY projects including: pennant banners, paper art, felt owl, toy box, fabric drawers, embroidery hoops and more! You can find all those projects on my blog:

Favorite Items

I have a few: the painted owl, the book shelves and the fact that our first teddy bears are in there too!


You don't need to spend a lot of money to make a room look nice. There are so many DIY projects in this nursery which saved us some money, but also makes the room even more special!
