As a wife to a military man I know that we won't be in one spot very long but I like to make all of the houses we've lived in feel like "our home" even the short term rental we were in for just over 6 months. I wanted to make our baby girl's nursery warm and inviting and I wanted to work with what we had, which was blah military base housing! I know that doing an all neutral room can be risky but as I decorator I willing to take on the challenge, bringing in tons of texture and some metallics my sweet girl's nursery went from military drab to totally fab.

I didn't want to spend tons of money on a room that we were moving out of in a few short months so everything in the room is pretty much a DIY. I faux painted the crib to give it a weathered grey Restoration hardware look. I used curtains from a previous house across one of the walls in the bedroom. The wall had two windows and instead of using two separate rods I used a long rod and let the curtains hang all the way across the wall. This made the room feel cozy. The dresser was given to me by my mom and I used Rub n' Buff and white paint to give it a stripped paint treatment. The cane rocker was gifted to me by my bestie.
When I finally finished Sloane's nursery it was Christmas time and I thought that the addition of a vintage aluminum Christmas tree tucked beside her crib was just the sparkle her room needed; I almost couldn't bare to take it down.
