Pin It When my first child was born, I dove into decorating her nursery. I was never a big fan of pink so I went with my favorite colors, teal, green, & browns. I found the fabrics and went from there. I painted the room the teal color in the fabrics (though admittedly I was never quiet satisfied with the way the color turned out).
We were SO blessed by a sweet family who GAVE us the crib, changing table and rocking chair. We purchased a book case and my dad had the furniture refinished in a soft yellow to match the fabrics I chose.
I made the window treatments using the paisley fabric and filled the bookshelf with books and toys from my childhood.
I made the bumper pads and bed skirt for the crib and purchase a canopy to hang over the bed.
For a wall hanging, I purchased plastic box photo frames and put the different fabrics used in the room in the frames. Total cost for the wall hanging ended up being less than $20. Then I painted the letters of her name and attached them to the outside of the boxes.
I made throw pillows for the room. Quite possibly my favorite accomplishment was designing and hooking her rug by hand.
Finally, I purchased a mobile from the clearance section for about $7 and used the base for my own mobile design.
I so enjoyed rocking my baby girl in her nursery knowing that I worked so hard on it just for her.
