When I saw Aimee’s newly rehabbed nursery on a budget, linked up to Thrifty Treasures, I thought it would be a fun room to spotlight on my Feature Friday series. Aimee is expecting a new little one in November and the new baby will be in this room and her older son, Jack will move to his own big-boy room at that time. It’s such a cute space, I wanted to share it!
You can see what Aimee started with. Some not so attractive 70’s paneling that really needed some attention. Aimee’s thoughts on doing this room in a serene and neutral palette:
I wanted the room to have a natural, nature-inspired feel and wanted it to be as calm and serene as possible. I know that you’re “supposed” to have bold graphics and colors for a nursery to help with your child’s sensory development, but I was totally selfish and decided that the room would be about what I wanted.
Inspired by our friend, Layla, she painted horizontal stripes on the walls. Very cute! I love the old song verse that Aimee added on the wall: His Eye is On the Sparrow and I know he watches Me. Love that!
A look at the corner of the room. They added beadboard to the ceiling, which Aimee says is her favorite part of the room. Aimee found this toy chest at Goodwill and painted it up to match the room. Adorable!
She found the tab-top Martha Stewart curtains at Goodwill and sewed brown fabric from WalMart to the bottom to make them longer.
Thanks, Aimee for letting me show off your room. Drop on over to Aimee’s blog, My Pink Life, for even more pics and info on the room redo.
