Location: Lees Summit, Missouri
Sometimes a budget can be the best thing. When we first moved in I painted every room in our house a different color. BRIGHT colors I should add. I've since repainted, and after learning my lesson I really wanted the nursery to be all white.
I knew it would be all white whether we had a boy or a girl. It makes it feel fresh and clean. Most of Henry's room was DIY, or I stole pieces from other rooms in our home. The yellow ladder was a DIY project as was the chalkboard wall and the turquoise dresser. All of the picture frames were thrift store finds that I spray painted to match the nursery. My husband and I whipped up Henry's banner all in one evening. The crib is from IKEA and the rocker is from Pottery Barn. It's bright and cheery and makes 2 a.m. wake up calls a little more relaxing.
