Flowers and Moon Nursery

by Stephen Romitz
(Statesville, NC, USA)

Our nursery design was inspired by a bolt of material we came across years ago which lead to having a chair recovered.

What brand and color of paint did you use?

Valspar paint in buff yellow and also pale ivory.

What brand of crib did you buy? Where from?

It was loaned to us from a relative. Unsure of the brand name.

What brand of nursery furniture did you choose? Where did you buy it?

We are all about refurbishing furniture found in thrift stores and that is what we have done for this room.

What nursery bedding set did you use? Where did you buy it?

The bedding was found at Target and some was custom made.

Tell us about your window treatments, nursery lighting, rugs, wall decor and accessories. Where did you buy them - were any handmade?

The curtains were found at Goodwill and pom poms were added from clearance pom poms found at Mary Jo's in Gastonia NC.

The cornice boards were made to match the chair we had recovered.

We purchased a moon light from Amazon.com. The ceiling light was purchased at a thrift store in Pittsburgh, PA. It was modified from a hanging light to a mounted fixture.

The table lamps were painted white and were found at a garage sale. The shades for the lamps were found on clearance at Lowe's.

How did you store all your baby goodies? In baskets, on shelves?

Baskets that were decorated to match the room decor. We couldn't find baskets we liked anywhere so these were brown originally. They have been painted white and decorated with material found at Hobby Lobby and Michael's.


room also has a closet with shelves and a place to hang items. Totes were bought at Walmart for the shelves.

How long did it take you? Was it easy, fun, difficult? What was your favorite part?

The project took about 2.5 months working on it a little here and a little there between working. Nothing about it was easy from the picking colors to deciding how to arrange the room.

Choosing all of the stuff to fill the room was fun. I had to have a ceiling feature that was difficult to ensure it was done right with lots of cutting and math.

The wainscoting was also a challenge with an old house and nothing level.

The favorite part is the final result of the canopy over the bed. The canopy began as plain white hoop and tulle' from IKEA. The canopy was then decorated with matching embellishments from around the room. Even the picture stands from picture frames on the wall were re-purposed to use on the canopy.

Did you do the entire nursery on your own or did someone help you? Who? What did they do?

Other than having the chair and cornice boards covered by a professional the design and work was completed by my wife and I.

What do you love most about your little one's finished baby room?

The fact that we are blessed to be awaiting the arrival of our little princess. My wife and I have struggled to get to this point and now at 45 we are about to have our first child. For room itself, my wife loves the canopy and I love the ceiling.
