So John and I have nailed down a place to live. We won’t be moving until April 1, fools that we are , so until then I have time to pack, pare down, and of course….obsess about decorating. I won’t be doing too much, because I’m doing Operation Penny Pinch (thanks Katie) but I’ll definitely do a bit of prettifying, especially to Embry’s room.
Pinterest, AKA Awesomeness sent from above, has lots of ideas for a DIY Nursery, and just random baby nursery stuff in general. I don’t know why I am developing an “I can totally do this” attitude to the DIY stuff, but I’m going to roll with the confidence and try a few things.
Harbor Blue from Pottery Barn Kids (Benjamin Moore’s Line)
Accent Colors: Orange, Teal, Yellow(?), Green(?)
I like this:
Still not sure if I want to go dark or light or white with the furniture…
I will probably go by price on the glider, and get this style:
And for crib and dresser/changing station (I’m just putting a pad on top of a dresser) we could go:
For the color...which do you like?
As for the DIY Items:
Wall name: Definitely this classic style versus the hanging from a ribbon style. I’ll just paint it in one of the accent colors or use scrapbook paper with fun designs in the accent colors to cover the wood letters.
Or I can go this route w/ the yarn:
just nix the flower and pretend it’s mounted on a wall.
Above the crib or changing station I’d like to make something cute to hang from the ceilings. The poms I see all over pinterest are cute, but too girly for Embry’s room. I saw a cool yarn design that I hope I can pull off.
I’d do it in all the accent colors. Super cute. The tutorial is HERE if you’re interested.
What do you think? My mom thinks the wall color is too pale..I may warm it up..but not sure. I’ll be back with pinterest inspiration for the living room and bedroom!
What color is/was your nursery? Did you do any DIY items? Know where to find inexpensive nursery furniture?
