Reagan’s DIY Room


Once I found out I was having a girl, I started collecting all kinds of inspiration for creating a vintage, crafty room for her!  I had a list of projects a mile long - it was a good thing I had almost 5 months to finish it, it took every bit of it!  I started with a bird/owl/tree theme but it ended up being more of an eclectic mix.

Design Inspiration

I was inspired by many things I saw on Etsy and various craft blogs, as well as wanting to include several items I had saved and collected to create a vintage feel.  Several things in her room were saved from my own nursery - I think if something has a story behind it, it is so much more special.

Decorating Style

Eclectic, for sure - I don't like anything new!  Flea markets and estate sales are my go-to places for design - I love to find something grungy and fix it up to look amazing.  I am constantly "projecting", as my husband calls it!  I don't like a shabby chic look, I prefer more of a mid-century vintage look with some modern flair.

Project Details

The only items in her room that are new are the crib (from JC Penney) and the white storage tower (from Ikea).  Everything else was handmade or repurposed.  The changing table was a linen chest from Craigslist.  The tree bookshelf was inspired by this fabulous one on Etsy:  The bird mobile over the crib was made from this tutorial:  The wallpaper on the ceiling (one of my favorite things in the room!) is Dandelion Mobile by Miss Print and was purchased from this website:

Favorite Items

I love the wallpapered ceiling, I love the changing table, I love the bird mobile, and I love the barnwood mirror, but I think my favorite thing is the tree bookshelf - it is so special since it was made from wood cut on my grandad's farmland, and I hope it will be a cherished heirloom for Reagan in the years to come.

Tree Bookshelves That Creatively Display Collections In style

[…] For the kids’ room, you should consider a tree bookshelf with low shelves so the kids can easily reach them. This one looks very cute actually and it’s made entirely of wood, without using decals or wall paint.{found on projectnursery}. […]
