I’ve been meaning to post this for almost 6 months now, so please forgive the backdated intro & bad pictures. I’ll probably be updating this within the next few days.
A recent trip to IKEA (bless the Swedes!) proved instrumental in putting the finishing touches on my daughter’s nursery–which has been in the process for the last 11 months, which, incidentally, is how old she is. Shame on me!!!
First on my list were some IKEA pants hangers (only a dollar each) to hang the prints I colored from my Johanna Basford Enchanted Forest coloring book. I even colored them to represent the four seasons. Overall, a seriously thrifty, whimsical, & fun(!) way to decorate P.J.’s nursery.
Here’s a close-up:
P.S. If you’re curious, I used Stabilo marker pens.
Here is the gallery wall adjacent to her crib (not the best photo quality, but it was taken an hour before bedtime).
I got most of my frames from IKEA, though the far left is Threshold from Target.
Here’s a close-up of the painting my best friend Megan did for P.J.’s first birthday:
I bought this toy storage cube from Target’s Room Essentials line (it was even cheaper than the IKEA version). I got the wire baskets from the Target dollar section for $3 each and though I had originally planned to spray them all the same shade of metallic, I decided to keep them different & colorful for the nursery. I also got the hamper from the Target dollar section for $7 to hold her many, many stuffies.
Here’s a close-up of her IKEA shelves & trinkets:
That’s all for her nursery ‘makeover’, and though it may not look like much because of my phone camera, it’s my favorite room in the house–light, colorful, whimsical, & less cluttered than anywhere else in the house. A happy place for a happy little girl.
