Spring Nursery Ideas

 

Spring and babies seem to go hand in hand so it is no surprise that lots of moms are hatching plans to decorate the nursery accordingly. Here are some tips to ensure your new life has a cheerful nest for romping!

Chose a spring color palette: Robin’s egg blue is great for boys and girls and Benjamin Moore has a beautiful version called Bird’s Egg. Martha Stewart paint chips are genius with tabs that flip down to reveal complementary colors. I chose Tidewater and Bone Folder and I swear I can smell fresh rain every time I walk into my son’s room.

Mix the Old and New: I used an antique dry sink as a changing table and a simple white crib from IKEA. To save money I purchased a glider on craigslist and had it re-upholstered in the softest indoor outdoor fabric I could find. After a year the chair still looks brand new!

 

Find Cheerful Airy Textiles: I had bumper pads and Window boxes made with fabric found at studiobontextiles.net (wired). Every time I see the little birds on the wire I smile. Chose something complementary for closet drapes and throw pillows. A soft rug is important, I recommend feeling before buying to ensure it will be soft when your little lamb starts crawling.

Form Needs Function To Survive: Take the doors off the closet so you have easy access. Hide a mini fridge for storing breast milk and snacks (mine is full of Easter candy) under a throw made from extra fabric. You will need a lamp and small table next to the glider for drinks, binkies and your cell phone.

Accessorize With Unique Finds: Antique baby rocking chairs, quilt racks for blankets and birds nests are cute ways to style the room. I collect vintage baby rattles and displayed them on a shelf with one of my favorite belly photos.

Don’t Forget Artwork: I am a photo freak so I waited to hang anything until I did a newborn shoot. There are thousands of brilliant artists on Etsy or DIY by framing fabric, words, vintage baby clothes, scrapbook paper or illustrations from children’s books. You can even purchase mismatched frames from a thrift store and paint them in a coordinating paint color (flip the ends over on the Martha Stewart paint chip).

Unless you are a Duggar, most people will not have many opportunities to decorate a nursery so have fun creating the ideal nest for your little Chickie.

  1. The boys found a robin’s egg in the yard and it’s sitting in our kitchen. If I have a hungry little chick squawking away at me in the morning I’ll send it your way :)

  2. Spot on with this write-up, I truly feel this site needs a lot additional consideration. I’ll almost certainly be once more to read significantly much more, thanks for that info.

  3. I love the mini-fridge suggestion. I am definitely doing that next time around! Poor Gabe got quite the stairmaster workout bringing me snacks while I spent entire weekends breastfeeding Calvin in bed. :)

  4. I have got one recommendation for your website. It looks like at this time there are a couple of cascading stylesheet troubles when opening a selection of web pages within google chrome and safari. It is functioning fine in internet explorer. Possibly you can double check this.

    • Thank you so much for alerting me to an issue with the site. I have looked at it in ie as well as safari and can not see the issue. If you happen to get a minute could you tell me exactly what you are seeing that looks troublesome? Thank you so much for your time! I am striving to make the site better and appreciate all feedback.

  5. This looks so great! With 3 of us pregnant right now, we will definitely be using some of these great ideas! Thanks for sharing on “Strut Your Stuff Saturday!” We hope to see you this friday! -The Sisters

    • Thank you so much for checking in Sisters and congrats on the trio on their way! I will definitely check in Friday, I am working on a new post now for the party!! Thanks again for the comment, it made this newbie bloggers day!!

  6. Superb blog! Do you have any helpful hints for aspiring writers? I’m planning to start my own site soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you suggest starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m completely overwhelmed .. Any tips? Thanks a lot!

    • Hi there!
      Thanks for the props. I would recommend paying for a domain and hosting. I bought mine through hostgator and so far I have been happy with them. I use WordPress.org as my web developing software. I can use a lot of plugins and it has a lot of flexibility. Good luck and have fun!
