DIY Fabric Garland for the Nursery

We’ve been checking off nursery projects like crazy lately.  One of my favorite projects that I finally completed was a DIY fabric garland for the nursery. Not only was this project super easy and cheap, but I LOVE the result!  It takes a large portion of wall space and it only cost about $20 to make.  Here are the supplies I used: 6 yards of fabric in various colors (look for a 50% sale at JoAnn!) rope or twine scissors I found Little Miss Momma’s tutorial to be the most helpful.  Depending on the fabric, I either ripped or cut long strips of fabric.  Most of the fabric was easy to rip, but, for whatever reason, some of it worked best if I cut it.  […]



Crown Molding Update & Nursery To-Dos 7

We finally finished getting the crown up in the nursery this weekend! Of course, no DIY project is free of mishaps and mistakes.  And curse words.  We made a few mistakes along the way that hopefully a little caulk and paint can cover up.  But all that really matters is we have a room of completed crown molding now! Before and after: We (well, Adam) still have to caulk the seams and nail holes and paint, but the hardest part is done.  I have a bunch of tips that I need to share because there was definitely a learning curve.  And since we don’t plan to tackle crown molding in the other two rooms for quite awhile (since we’ll be rather busy with a newborn […]

Blue Paint in the Nursery 6

We’ve been making tons of progress in the nursery since the holidays.  I picked out both blue and pink colors before we knew the gender so we’d be ready to go when we had time to paint. The blue we went with is Timid Blue from Sherwin Williams.  (I also chose Fancy Pink also by SW if it would have been a girl.) Timid Blue turned out to be the PERFECT color.  I absolutely love it.  It’s a little green, but mostly blue.  The color changes constantly throughout the day which I love.  It’s pale and soft and not overwhelming but very pleasing to look at.  I’ve been admiring it for a week since Adam painted! I seriously struggle with picking the right paint colors.  […]



Baby Boy Nursery Inspiration 1

Now that we know we’re having a baby boy, we can finally start on the nursery!  I’ve been scouring Pinterest FOR-ever for the perfect nursery inspiration and have it narrowed down to some things I like. I definitely gravitate towards light colors and a calming, sophisticated look.  Isn’t this nursery ‘dreamy’?? Hahaha. These two pictures below may be my favorites I found to date.  I love both gliders, especially the first one.   Lots of people have asked me what the ‘theme’ of the nursery will be?  I think ‘themes’ used to be really popular back in my parents’ day, because both of our parents seem really concerned about my nursery theme.  There won’t really be a nursery theme, but there will be a couple […]
