I know that baby's don't really need nursery's, and if they have one I am sure they don't need to be color coordinated and pretty.
I figured with the amount of time I'll be spending in that room nursing and such, I might as well make it a beautiful space. Plus, I made it gender neutral so that I can use the same decorations over and over for future babies should God gift them to us.
I am not a beige person.... or a muted colors person. Unfortunately, most of the gender-neutral nursery decorations in the stores are beige, light yellow, or sage green. I like bright and bold colors, and I wanted that for baby's room.
So I decided to get most of the decorations from Etsy, where I could order custom-made pieces that were exactly the colors I wanted them to be. Luckily I found some great vendors who created very high-quality work for reasonable prices.
You might remember the nursery inspiration board which I shared a while back
So are you ready????
Here is a "before" photo of what used to be our guest room/office/everythingthatdoesn'thaveaplace room
When looking for ideas for wall decorations, I found this photo on Pinterest
So I purchased embroidery hoops on ebay and fabric from fabric.com to make this wall decoration. Very easy to make and I love the way it turned out
A family friend made the small quilt on the back of the rocking chair for us. Baby's growing book collection is in a basket next to the chair, as well as a basket with some toys
The one "splurge" I made is this mobile from Etsy. I was planning to make one myself but my super frugal husband told me to buy one instead, as he knew it would be a bit of a stressful project with everything else that is going on around here. I am happy with the results, as it is very well made. (And I am very thankful I can put my energy into other projects instead of this one)
Next to the crib is a hamper I found on clearance
I asked you all your opinions about the curtain fabric. It is also used in the quilt and the embroidery hoop art
So what do you think? Have I achieved a (somewhat) gender neutral room? Have any of you also attempted to put together a nursery from scratch?
