When we finished renovating our nursery last year, I was expecting a baby but we didn’t know if it was a boy or a girl. So we kept the nursery on the neutral side. Since Violet was born, I’ve been adding little feminine touches here and there.
This is by far my favorite room in the house. Is that weird? I love all the textures and creamy colors. It just feels so warm and COZY!
This is a great way to do free art in a nursery! I hung a frilly pink dress on the wall using pins, then put an old frame around it. I think I had found the frame at Goodwill a few years ago and painted it white.
I found the changing table at a yard sale and, of course, painted it white. No surprise there! Nothing fancy but it does the job. All of the furniture in the room was either thrifted or given to us or made by us.
We decided to keep this brick wall instead of putting drywall over it, which would have made it look newer. And we decided to keep the electrical pipes exposed. This room was built onto the house at some point, so this used to be an exterior wall. I just painted it a cream color.
I wanted a lot of texture in the room, and I think this brick brings texture as well as character. The window looks into Jack’s bedroom.
The green cabinet is a laundry shoot that I wrote about in this post. The mirror was a $10 find from Pottery Barn Outlet.
I handpainted the lettering and made the crib bedding. Just don’t look too closely! I’m not exactly a great seamstress! I made it myself, because I just couldn’t find anything that worked for me without spending a ton of money.
Here is what the nursery looked like when we bought the house. Paneled walls, tiled ceiling, concrete floor – pretty much a disaster. We just used it for storage for the first few years that we lived here.
