Colorful Gender Neutral Nursery Full of DIY!


From the moment I found out I was expecting I was so excited to work on a nursery for my baby! We decided to be surprised by the baby's gender so I created a colorful nursery grounded by shades of aqua and turquoise. Everyone knows that welcoming home a new baby is very expensive, so I looked for unique ways to keep the costs low and the adorable factor high!

This colorful rug laid the groundwork for a truly colorful, fun nursery. My "why'd the chicken artwork" is the perfect, cheeky piece for a little one's room. I took the pic myself while on vacation with my hubby in Key West.

I used a small swatch of the curtain fabric to make a custom pillow. This chair, which belonged to my husband's great grandmother, was given new life with a fresh gray upholstery job.
