I’m excited to share with you baby’s mini nursery in our newly redone (but not yet revealed here on the blog) master bedroom. Baby should be here any day so I can’t wait to put this space to better use.
As you can tell, I went for a really elegant, neutral color palette to match the rest of my bedroom.
I got the glider on Craigslist for a steal! It was still in the plastic and about $100 cheaper than all of the used ones I found. I got the grey ruffled pillow from HomeGoods.
Remember the DIY Silhouettes from Christmas time? They made they’re way upstairs into our bedroom after Christmas. I got the gold scrolly applique from Hobby Lobby for 1/2 off!
This little bookcase was a freebie and I gave it a little makeover with chalk paint. I’ll show you more of that next week. It desperately needed a makeover. I got the little baskets from Hobby Lobby too for 1/2 off.
Here’s a look at the other side. You can also kind of see the layout of this little nook in our bedroom. It’s the perfect spot for baby’s stuff.
I found this cradle on the side of the road in perfect structural condition but it needed painted badly. I first painted it black but after redoing our room, I wanted it grey. I used Glidden Olivewood and made DIY Chalk paint to paint it. Then, I gave it a coat of Minwax paste wax. I loooove the distressed grey with the white satin and minky bedding I made. I also made the mattress out of some 4″ foam from Joann’s and a vinyl shower curtain to make it water/fluid resistant like a typical crib mattress.
This awesome rug came from HomeGoods too for only $16! I love it!
It’s kind of hard to see the print but the drapes came from HomeGoods too. They’re curtains are awesome quality and not expensive at all! I made the gold bay window curtain rod from a conduit and this tutorial. The tutorial is awesome and you can get a huge window curtain rod for under $10!
…and one final look at this side. I really love how it all came together! Now little baby, come out!!!
