Sweet Caroline’s Nursery


This was the nursery we made for our first daughter Caroline born in May of 2013.  I really didn't want to break the bank on the nursery so I spent a lot of time online looking at ways I could DIY, or save money.

Design Inspiration

So many things ! Shabby Chic, Pinterest, Etsy, a bird fabric I found on Carousel Designs, Chevron, and my love for DIY-ing.  I wanted to create a space that would be happy and soothing for our baby.
