Leo has a charming, friendly room to grow with him. His mother Stephanie fills us in: We wanted something bright and cheerful for our little boy's nursery, so we opted for white furniture and bright greens and blues. We're not traditional people and didn't want the traditional baby nursery sets you can find in various stores.

My jumping off point was the Dwell crib sheet and a green chevron fabric I found online. From there I made the crib skirt and valence and found some grey dots to refinish the cushions of an old glider my Mom had at her house. We got the crib from Kijiji and went with an Ikea storage unit and dresser.

The side table is a piece I found at a garage sale and repainted white. It was lot of fun to put the pieces together! You can find more info on my blog here: l
