The first thing we did was PAINT! When we moved into our house this room was Lavender.... precious, but not for my son. I painted the walls Sweet Pea Green and then we tore up the floor (it was a lovely thick carpet in Teal). We installed (well mostly my husband) laminate wood flooring to match our crib and then re-did all the trim.
I had an idea of what I wanted the tree to look like, but I totally lacked the confidence and know-how to actually paint it on our wall, so, I hired my husband's cousin who paints and she painted our beautiful tree complete with our birdies. I absolutely LOVE how our tree turned out.
Next I put up vinyl lettering above the closet. My sister had this poem in her nursery and I loved it:
Cleaning and scrubbing can wait till tomorrow, for babies grow up we've learned to our sorrow.... So quiet down cobwebs, dust go to sleep, I'm rocking my baby and babies don't keep.
I made the pillow cover for the rocking chair and the skirt under the crib (which is reversible to match the pillow). Framed some little baby feet and our nursery was good to go. Hope this inspires you to do something fun with your nursery! Tell me what fun things you have done (or wish to do) with your nursery, I would LOVE to hear your ideas!
