The past couple of months John and I have been slowly getting the nursery ready for baby girl Martin’s arrival in 2 1/2 months. I thought I would share with you all of my inspiration and where you can find some of these items to make the perfect room without spending too much money.
When I first found out it was a girl, I was all about the nursery being the typical pink and grey color scheme. As time went on, I began to feel inspired by the paint that was already in our nursery room. The color can be described as a grey-greenish paint (see slideshow below) and I thought it would go perfect with a color scheme of corals, blush pinks, mint green, and gold. The colors brought out an idea to accent with arrows and feathers as well as other cute finds that will pull the whole room together. After some research on Pinterest, I came up with some fun items to put on the walls and turn this bland room into a cute nursery!
I bought these fun gold dot decals from Amazon.com (200 in a pack) and chose a small wall right when you walk through the door to make the room pop out as soon as you enter. I wanted to condense the dots towards the corner and have them cascade and disperse as you moved down the wall. For not being the best DIY woman, I think I did a pretty good job!
This room is small, so I knew that storage would be very important in order to create a functional space that she could grow in for a couple of years. We decided to purchase the white (to match our crib and dresser) 6-Cube Organizer Shelf by Threshold at Target. As shown in the slideshow, we will use this as multi-purpose storage for books, toys, and blankets. To dress up the counter space of the organizer shelf, I found two bottles in the 1 dollar section at Target that would work as makeshift vases. At Michaels, I chose some fake hydrangeas that went with the color scheme and placed them in the makeshift vases. Super cheap idea to create a cute space!
My next Pinterest project was to find a garland strand with the color palate of the room that could hang above the crib. The final project will have the garland strand hanging centered over the crib with the name of the baby above that. BUT because we are not sharing our name, we are waiting to hang this piece up until we have made a decision. I found the garland strand at Amazon.com and it will be pictured and linked on this page.
Last but not least, let’s move on to the crib. We decided to go with a white crib to go along with the overall white trim throughout the house, and personally I really like a white finish. I have registered for a few cute fitted sheets through Babies R Us that showcase feathers and arrows in the colors of the nursery. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE. For now, we purchased a solid coral fitted sheet from Babies R Us so that our adorable niece can test out the crib when she comes for my baby shower in a few weeks. It was a difficult task to find a bed skirt that I liked from the places I registered so I branched out to Amazon and found what I was looking for. I went with the Peach to Coral 3 Tiered Ruffled Crib Skirt. Now, this specific item was a little more of a splurge (John don’t read this part!), but I didn’t want to buy a complete crib set when all a baby really needs is a fitted sheet and eventually a bumper.
The nursery is not completely finished yet, but I am completely obsessed with it so far. Hope you enjoy the pictures! I have attached the links below to some of the items I have purchased for reference.
