Sunshine and Stripes DIY Aqua Nursery


A cheerful nursery filled with DIY projects because we wanted to put a touch of love and creativity into maximizing this small space for our baby girl. I've never really been a fan of traditional pinks, purples, or themes in nurseries, so I chose some fun colors and textures to make it unique. Saving a spot above the crib for the Top Secret name . . . coming soon!

Design Inspiration

Space-saving, textures, DIY budget projects

Decorating Style

I obsessively photoshop ideas together to see what works before I purchase items online! It's fun and helps because I'm a bit indecisive!

Favorite Items

I love the way the 3D wall tiles turned out. I wasn't sure if I should use them. It was a bit time intensive to double-stick tape them to the wall and paint them, but they came out better than I hoped!
