From 80s to Adorable: A DIY Nursery

Nurseries are a unique room in most people's home. They tend to hold a whole lot of things that will only be used for a few months before they are replaced by furniture and items that serve the next life stage. Rather than purchase all new and unsustainable baby furniture and accessories Jenny from Anything Pretty DIYed almost the entire room with things she had or used items she repurposed.

Instead of filling the room with generic big box store items Jenny from Anything Pretty filled her baby's room with personal items. Not only does this make the room personalized it allowed her to use things she already had:

Items with personal significance were also something I wanted to incorporate in the space. We have not shared baby boy's name with anyone (but my mother-in-law has a pool going if anyone is interested). However, the first initial is common knowledge. So of course I had to incorporate that. On the gallery wall are also photos we took at the San Diego zoo during our last vacation (technically baby's first). After he is born, the clip art hand and footprints will we replaced with his (and yes I realize my stand-in has a disproportionate hand to the size of the foot…I was just using those to make sure I liked the idea).
