When Audrey sent us her insanely sweet nursery makeover we couldn’t wait to share the goods. Here’s her letter:
I really enjoy reading your blog and thought I’d shoot you guys a before and after that I’ve gotten some good feedback on my blog for! I know you guys are suckers for a good before and after, so I hope you enjoy this one. It’s a nursery that I did for my sister – she’s due in a few months with a little boy, but on modified bedrest so can’t do much in the way of creating a nursery. I’m a commercial interior designer by trade, but I thought I’d take a stab at some interior “decorating” and whip up this nursery for her (with the help of my family members) during a weekend visit. I hope you guys enjoy! Some tidbits about the makeover:
- We were definitely on a budget, so almost everything was from Ikea or Target, sans the new ceiling fan and glidder from Babies R Us.
- The paint color we used (blue) was Valspar – 5001-5B, High Noon – and low VOC for baby on the way.
- We did the bike mural by borrowing an overheard projector from my sister’s school (middle school teacher) and projecting a bike image up on the wall that we found online. I traced this bad boy with a white paint pen and then filled in with some ceiling white paint.
- The before picture was from before they moved in, so please excuse the heinous floral bedding and lacy window treatments.
Keep up the good work! – Audrey
We are suckers for a good before and after! And this one’s especially delicious. Here’s the granny-inspired before picture:
And the amazingly adorable afters:
Isn’t Audrey’s nursery makeover inspiring? It’s crisp and cute and oh so fun. And you know we’re crazy about that bike mural, right? That’s one lucky baby (and sister for that matter)!
