My Baby Girl’s Nursery

I was super excited to do the nursery when I found out I am expecting a baby girl.  Of course, we wanted to be super thrifty, but I love how it turned out.  We had the crib and we reused the blue glider from my son’s nursery.  The walls are a soft peachy orange and I was inspired by a little red riding hood fabric I found that was used in the quilt.  My husband’s aunt is very talented and made the quilt hanging on baby girl’s bed.  I LOVE it.

All the furniture was from my son’s nursery but it is all hand-me-downs or from flea markets that we repainted and added new hardware to.  I made the name frames on the corner cabinet with the leftover scraps from the quilt.  The pictures above the changing table are illustrations I cut out of an old fairy tale book and framed in flea market frames.  The butterfly mirrors I found at Kohl’s.  The caddy on the changing table and the hanging box with drawers were hand-me-downs from my mom that I painted a corally pink.  The collage above the crib were all frames and mirrors I had and pictures I took or made (like the “C” and the ABC pic).  The vase with calla lilies was my grandmother’s and the mobile was $5 from IKEA.  The curtains and tulle crib skirt I ordered from Target, and they were both really low priced.  The only splurge was the rug (for obvious reasons) which I got at Pier 1.  I just loved it and couldn’t find anything else even close.  🙂

Here is the ABC pic I made if you’d like to use it!  I used all fonts that I created and which are available for free for personal use in My TpT Store.

My Toddler’s Big Boy Room

Since I am expecting a baby girl in September, we moved my little boy (2 and 1/4 years old) into his new big boy toddler room. It was really fun to do and he loves it.  As my boy would say, “My new room… It’s so nice!”  Here is a little collage I made.

I love interior design but we wanted to be super thrifty with the design.  The lockers were actually left in our basement when we moved in so we painted them orange and they look great and make nice storage!  Since my husband coaches basketball, we wanted a sporty theme for our big boy.  😉  The dresser was a hand-me-down from my husband’s grandma, and it looks awesome in green!  I also adore the bicycle knobs I found at Hobby Lobby.  During a 50% off sale they were just $1.99, and the little nickel knobs were just $0.97 at Lowe’s.  I recycled the area rug from his nursery, but it was only like $40 from IKEA.  I also reused the curtains, trunk and some of the decor from his nursery.  I found the quilt at Target and the striped pillow at IKEA.  I made the wall art and painted the frames I already had a navy blue.  The chair was my son’s grandfather’s when he was a child and they had it reupholstered as a gift for my little boy.  Love it.  I had sketched the picture of daddy playing football in college and it was a first year anniversary gift, which looks great in our boy’s room.

Here is the file I created and used for the wall art. I used all fonts I created which are available for free for personal use in my TpT Store.   I hope you love it and can use it!  🙂

YOU ARE AWESOME wall art file
