Today I'm starting my new series "Handmade Nursery". Mostly everything in here is handmade or refurbished or thrifted in someway. Here's a sneak peak at the whole nursery, in later posts, I'll divulge on all the how-to details of each project. I wanted this nursery to be super neutral with pops of pink. The color on the walls are Crisp Linen White and Water Chestnut from Glidden.
click). The lamp was taken from the guest room. The mirror was something I have had from years back at my moms house, and the dresser was given to me (makeover post found here).
The ladder in this corner was a DIY project along with the hanging frames (tutorial here). The dresser was my old childhood dresser that I painted and updated. The crib was a gift from my mom. I love the curve detail. The room definitely needed it because of the straight lines and angles of the board and batten.
This lamp was a find I got on clearance from Home Depot back during the summer. Its just been sitting in the garage. I brought it to the nursery just to see what it looked like, and fell in love with the look. It's totally non-functional, but I don't care :)
The curtains are from Ikea. $5 for two panels, they look like the tulle I used for the crib skirt (which you can't see in the pictures, sorry). The rugs were also from Ikea.
Board and batten: approx $70
Glider: $100 (walmart)
Curtains: $10 (ikea)
Rugs: $40 (ikea)
+ other supplies for crib skirt, ladder, hanging art: approx. $15
Total cost on my part bought specifically for the nursery: $235.
For other costs, the crib was $180, the Home Depot lamp was $20. I think that's about it.
Hopefully I'll start getting a little bit more time to get some more posts up soon!
