Teal and Lime Nursery


I wanted a bright and fun nursery for my daughter, and chose to go with teal and lime green. Not traditionally "girly" colors, but with a few feminine choices it's perfect for her. I built the changing table from an Ana White plan, made the galvanized bucket ottoman / toy box, recovered my husband's grandmother's chair (which was used to rock his mom, and then him, and now our daughter) and converted her vintage tv into a bookcase. We built the twin bed (Ana White's Pioneer bed) and I sewed the duvet with Freespirit Deer Valley fabric. And of course we needed the ubiquitous PB-inspired ruler height chart!

I used a painted IKEA chandelier in the closet (lime green, of course) with some sheer curtains to make it a bit funkier.

    Thanks so much! It may be my favorite DIY in the room. Other than the baby of course ;)
