Precious Nursery

Lauren from

has an amazing eye for design, DIY skills and decorating talent. She has the sweetest nursery makeover from top to bottom. Click HERE to see her original posts with details on what she purchased, links and the awesome budget. You won’t believe the cost breakdown. She rocks!

Here are a few pictures of the before and after:

Here’s where we started when we moved in:

Oh and picture a sports border in between the orange and ‘dinge’ colored paint. In our zest to remove it, we forgot to take a true before photo.

We (AKA the Hubster) did a lot of painting and construction, including new hardwood floors from Lumber Liquidators, adding beadboard, and all new trim:

To get the nursery to this point:

So there’s a little bit of history for you. Without further ado, here is the (mostly) completed nursery:

I am sooo in love with our new window seat bench and cushion. It opens up for storage and is a comfy cozy place to sit and survey the neighborhood or read a book. I made the pillows myself (and I’m pretty proud of it too – I’m NOT a sewer by any stretch of the imagination) I think I’ll make a few more, but sewing is tough when you’re 39.5 weeks pregnant. The window seat cushion is also a custom piece from Jayna @ RockyTop Designs on etsy.

I painted the tree and the hand-me-down dresser for the nursery and added fabric leaves to the wall for a little added texture. We also replaced the wooden knobs on the dresser with white and metal ones (we couldn’t decide between white or metal, so we did both). It’s amazing what you can do with a little paint!

I really can’t find anything I don’t like. I love the custom bumper, the soothing color scheme, the little accents (that owl and fox are adorable!), the glider and the window seat. It’s all so pretty!

Lauren – thank you so much for sharing your awesome nursery makeover with us! I think that little Violet is one lucky little girl! Best of luck in the next few days. I’ll be thinking of you!
