Modern Color Baby Nursery
by Shawna Fosket
Modern Color Baby Nursery
I was inspired by modern baby rooms with bright vibrant colors. We didn't find out what we were having so it needed to be gender neutral. I thought the bright colors were fun and playful but could work with either gender.
We bought a cream 5x8 rug from Home Depot. For wall decor, I made a picture frame of our dog when he was a puppy. I printed photos with a large white border (photos were 4x6, white border made them 8x10's), took them to OfficeMax to laminate the photos, and applied grommets at the tops and bottoms. I got 'S' hooks from Home Depot to join the photos and tacked them onto a wooden dowel (also purchased from Home Depot). We hung the photos with picture wire.
I purchased tennis racquets on a garage sale and hung them on another wall. Above the dresser we hung a mirror that we painted white. By the closet, we applied an Uppercase Living wall decal.
For accessories, we set out a photo frame and some stuffed animals (the giraffe was from Target, Carter's).
We purchased a hanging shelf for the closet to store toys and clothes. The dresser has lots of storage, we plan to store most of the toys and clothes in the dresser. The changing table also has lots of storage. We purchased a white canvas tote from Wal-mart to store lotions, baby powders, and creams. The crib also came with a bottom rolling drawer which houses blankets and play mats.
It took us about 3 months, but it was not continuous work. The stripes took a bit longer than a solid color wall, but it wasn't all that difficult. The laser level helped out greatly!
The baby's quilt that I made took the longest portion of time, but it turned out great and I'm proud to show it off so it was worth the effort.
My favorite part was seeing it all finally come together. I had envisioned it for so long, it was nice to see it come to fruition.
My husband and my sister helped paint. My husband helped me put the furniture together. My husband helped me move the furniture around and decide how to arrange items.
I love the striped walls and the colors. It really makes everything pop!! I love how my quilt turned out as well! It was my first attempt at sewing a quilt, so I was very proud when it was completed.
