Project Nursery Complete

The nursery has been completed for a few weeks now, I'm just a little late writing the post. Here it is, a vivid, fresh, and budget-friendly nursery.

Armed with a few thrifty finds, inexpensive framing techniques and DIY doings, this nursery is mind stimulating for baby to enjoy.

Asher's room was fairly plain so Gerald and I installed the chair rail molding to give it detail.  I painted all the walls white on white and the ceiling down to the chair rail french white by Benjamin Moore.  I made the drapes for a previous project but were not in use anymore so they found a new home.

The crib was a great find.  I wanted either a very modern white crib with black detailing or a detailed wooden crib, just this color, and that's what I found! I made the crib skirt.

Above the crib are colorful art prints. I purchased six white frames and printed the free art.

 A fireplace mantel was used for a wall shelf.  Here you can view the DIY mantel shelf project.

The wooden frames below were thrift finds, the lamp and other accessories I already had or were gifts.  Inside the wooden frames are more images I found online and printed.

I used a vintage suitcase to put Asher's books in...

The rocking chair was an easy DIY upholstery project.

And a little big bird chair for Asher...

Another DIY project was transforming this antique dresser into a bright fun piece. See the  dresser makeover here.

The baskets above are change stations I setup, one for each floor of the house.  The lamp was a thrift find. I painted the base yellow and reupholstered the shade with white fabric and black satin ribbon. 

I wanted an all white nursery with punches of color.  Many of the items I already had like the striped rug, big bird chair and wooden animal carvings from our travels.  I have a small obsession for owls so you'll see lots of them in the room. I tied in Asher's heritage with a printed native prayer, Glooscap images and storybooks and sweet grass.

Here is what I spent:

Molding $25
Paint $90
Kijiji Crib $40
Kijiji Dresser $50
Owl Knobs $20
Kijiji Rocker $30
Thrift lamp - $6
Picture frames 6 @ $2 each = $12
Printed poem $8

That's it for the nursery, it was a fun room to tackle, my first baby/kids project!
