A Glamorous White and Gold Nursery for Elena


I wanted to create a glamorous, but calming and relaxing space for my baby. Something that could grow with her.

Design Inspiration

The inspiration was my love for gold, and all things girly. I wanted to have a feminine space, without being overly "baby" feeling, so that the room could be a space for her as she grew up. Being a wedding planner myself, I took inspiration from popular wedding decor.

DIY Projects:

Mobile - I saw this project on Style Me Pretty. It seemed very easy to do and I thought it would compliment the nursery perfectly! I ordered tassels from PaperChainPress on Etsy, and got started. I created the round top by purchasing a wire ring plant stand at Dollarama. I then hung the tassels at varying lengths from the wire ring. I covered the ring with a ribbon so you didn't see the tied tassels. I added string to the top to hang it from the ceiling.  It was THAT easy! Having the tassels pre-made, made the whole process much easier.

Gold Wall Prints - These were very pricey to order as Gold Foil prints when doing so many on the wall. Instead, I purchased gold scrapbook paper and white card stock from Michaels. I printed shapes and words on the card stock, and used an exacto-knife to cut the shape out. I then put the gold scrapbook paper in behind and bam! looks like a gold foil print! I purchased all the frames from the dollar store to put them in.

Change Pad Frame - This was another easy DIY for Grandpa to help with. Purchased wood that he cut to the appropriate size of the change pad, nailed them together and covered with white paint. To keep it from sliding around, we added non-slip feet from the dollar store.

Favorite Items

Our favourite item has to be the glider. It is so nice to have quiet time in the nursery, rocking Elena to sleep.


Never underestimate yourself. When you see inspiration on Pinterest, and other websites/blogs, and you absolutely LOVE it, but think you can't possibly handle the DIY aspect of the project? Try it. When making a space for your new little one, it is so rewarding to be able to sit back and know those favourite pieces in your space were made by you. with love.

What exact gold spray paint did you use for the IKEA chandelier?


Friday 11th of July 2014

Rustoleum Metallic Gold Spray Paint. I used this brand for all of the gold pieces in the room - the chandelier, the nesting tables, and the farm animals. It adhered great to the items!
