Location: Columbus, Ohio

After months of scheming, planning, and DIYing, we finally finished the nursery for our baby boy! We put together this eclectic vintage modern room on a budget coming in under $700 total for everything.

Saving money with lots of thrifted and reused items and handmade projects, we were able to splurge on a few bold pieces like the striped rug that really makes this room pop! Bright and playful fabrics used for pillows, frames, and even to cover a lampshade bring life to this little boy's adventurous room!

Source List:

  • Dresser- vintage purchase from Boomerang Room in Clintonville and painted white with black hardware
  • Lamp- thrift store find painted black and fitted with a DIY lampshade from Cotton + Steel fabric a a kit from I Like That Lamp
