This simple nursery design is something many parents can recreate. The parents made the fabric covered canvas pieces above the crib, and you can make a sign with your baby’s name by cutting and painting a sheet of metal, or by painting and connecting a set of wooden letters. The personalized touch of the parents’ favorite psalm, along with the framed quotation are loving additions to this little girl’s room.

Product Description:
Personalized name sign above the crib from a deal on www.pickyourplum.com and once it arrived the owner painted it raspberry pink.

The two flower art pieces hanging beside the name sign are made from canvas, fabric, quilt bunting and rosettes. You can view the entire project here: http://rock-a-byebradbury.blogspot.com/2012/05/diy-fabric-flower-art.html

The nursery plaque was an inspirational item on Shanty 2 Chic. You can view the complete tutorial here: http://www.shanty-2-chic.com/2012/02/psalm-139-art-and-free-printable.html

You can the owner’s post here: http://rock-a-byebradbury.blogspot.com/2012/03/diy-bible-verse-art-project.html

Also made was the toy box on wheels. which was taken from the post, Running with Scissors, http://projectsbyjess.blogspot.com/2012/02/crate-tutorial-rustic-herringbone.html

The old fruit crate was already owned. The owner sanded, stained and attached wheels to the bottom. You can view her blog post here: http://rock-a-byebradbury.blogspot.com/2012/03/fruit-crate-makeover.html

The changing table wasmon craigslist.com for only $35. The owner painted it white.
The hydrangea wall decals were purchased at Joanns and applied to the front of the table.

Inspired by a giraffe-covered blanket, this bright animal friendly nursery is airy and truly unique. One of the best element in the room is the pinwheel mobile, which is both visually interesting and unlike something you see in most nurseries. We love the reading nook that is already set up. Shallow bookcases are an excellent addition to small nurseries – you get to display your books without having to sacrifice a huge part of your wall.

Product Information:
The curtains and pinwheel mobile were DIY projects. The chair is vintage and the giraffe is from my childhood nursery. I found many of the pictures on Esty. Above the changing table are framed pages from old Charley Harper calendars. The owl lamp is from Target. The changing table is an Ikea Epedit bookshelf with drawer inserts and knobs from Anthropologie. The metal A on the shelf is also from Anthropologie.

These parents really pack a lot of design into a small space. The stripes, wall art, and green accents give plenty of visual interest. Inspired by the kelly green used in the artwork, this room blends neutral and bold colors in a way that makes sense. If you are fond of a particularly bright color, use tan or white on the walls and then use the furniture and art space as a way to utilize the brighter shade. This way you get to use the color you love, and you don’t have to try and cover up hot pink or neon blue walls in a few years.

The Nursery Book would like to add that Jessica, the mom and designer of this room, stated the following:
“All of the items in his room were handmade, handed down, or found off craigslist or thrift stores. With exception the rug is from Ikea, and was probably the most expensive item in his room. The crib was a craigslist find for only $30 (with the mattress!). The dresser/changing table was a thrift store find that we transformed. The glider was a hand me down that I recovered. The chevron fabric in the room was from fabric.com”

This room feels very grown up – the style would blend nicely into a home where you have chosen a minimalist style throughout. The framed art over the crib is something anyone can recreate. Just take your favorite book quote, or a poem or prayer, and print it out on thick card stock. Once it’s framed, this inexpensive art project will become a focal point in the room! We also like the big stuffed lamb, which brings a little whimsy into the otherwise modern

Maroon might not come to your mind first when you’re picking out nursery colors – blue and pink, or pastel variations seem more baby friendly. In this nursery, however, the dark color contrasts nicely with the crisp white birch tree décor and the bright white crib. We love the dual chandeliers, because they make the room seem elegant and draw attention to the focal area of the crib. The Irish blessing over the crib is a sweet way to top off a baby’s sleep spot!

Inspired by a modern farm house, this gray room is filled with sweet stuffed animals and bold patterns. The wooden ladder and farm animal toys give the room the slight feel of a barn, but not so much that the décor gets hokey. Thanks to the modern mirror over the dresser, which has sleek lines, and the crisp stripes, the room still feels modern and would fit right into a home that has a contemporary overall design.

The small hand-made touches in this nursery room really make it special. From the ruffle and bead chandelier near the window, to the ruffled lamp shade, the feminine charm is obvious, even though the design is simple. We also love the picture frame that was transformed into a bow holder. What a creative way to add a personal, and useful, touch to the girly nursery! This could never be mistaken for a little boy’s room.

This nursery really commits to its theme, from the hand-painted animal print dresser to the animal print letters that spell out the baby’s name. We love the over-the-top giant giraffe, and the faux brick wall behind the crib. With a lot of time and commitment, you can really transform your room into a magical place, and this nursery proves it. The continent of Africa is not only a great design piece, it’s also educational!

We love that these parents used words as the inspiration for the nursery décor. The quote above the cribs draws the eye right to that side of the room, and the metallic words on the shelf and wall are also sweet and give good character to the space. The corduroy chair looks oh-so-comfy, and it also has a sort of down to earth feeling that contrasts nicely with the modern edge of the dark wood cribs and changing table. When it comes to twins, painting their names on the wall is always a cute way to show that each child has his or her own space within the room!

When you don’t have a lot to spend on your nursery, welcoming twins might seem like a huge challenge when it comes to decorating. This nursery still has character, and was put together for less than $500. The bold green cribs add tons of character to the space, so the fact that there isn’t too much on the walls isn’t as obvious. Likewise, using a bold rug is a smart choice, as it draws the eye downward and away from the empty wall space.

Designer, Ashley DeLapp of Evaru Design, Notes on Products Used and Places It Was Purchased:

The cribs were recycled from Craig’s List. I sanded them down and painted them a glossy kelly green.
The paint was from Lowes, Valspar ‘Garden Green’; they turned out even better than I imagined. The rug and curtains are from IKEA.
The changing table and armoire were gifts from a friend, so I made them a little more special with hardware from Anthropologie.
The bedding was stock bedding from Baby Best Buy and I added pink pom-pom trim for some vintage flair.
The wall decals are from etsy, and idea I picked up from a Real Room on Project Nursery.
