Neutral Baby Nursery - DIY

 Long before the birth of our second son, I started to think about his nursery. :)

I wanted it calm, warm, and relaxing.

A room I could go to, to nurse, change, enjoy and love my baby boy :)

I had such a pleasure working on this room! It was extra special to me since we didn't make one for our firstborn because we were in the middle of major remodeling!

It came out pretty close to what I had imagined ;)

The beautifully stars were by Martha Stewart that i purchased at TJ Maxx, Crib was from CL the Sheep Rug from Ikea. The beautifully bedding set is by Wendy Bellisimo and borrowed to me from my good friend Olga :)

I wish the yellow was lighter....Oh well ;)

Imagine sign I got at Salvation Army for like a $1, if not 50 cents.

The Gliding Chair and ottoman, we purchased off of CL :) For $50! ;) The IKEA table from CL for $6! Originally $60!!! It had a little water damage, hubby sanded it down and spray painted with $4 paint :) Voila!Lamp and curtains also lent to my from Olga :)

The changing table, dresser combo was Free of of CL :D SCORE!!! You will not believe it but I just wiped it down with a rag :D It has some nick-knacks but is amazing condition :) Did I mention it's a PALI brand? :D

The gorgeous shelf was also from Olga :)

The mobile was also from Olga :)

And this is the little guys that lives in this room ;)


Paint - $40
Crib - $224
Dresser/Changing Table - $0
Sheep Rug - $25
Table - $10
Little square shelves from Goodwill - $1
