Sweet Striped Nursery turned Big Girl Room

Two years ago today was my due date, unfortunately
my little miss was extremely fashionably late (10 days).
But regardless, it was time to turn her nursery into
a big girl room.
Here is her sweet swiped nursery before:

and here is the after:

Sorry for the lack of natural light, I actually kind of like it,
I think it makes it look extra cozy and welcoming!
The room was a hodge podge of DIY projects,
that came together quite nicely.

Here is a $10 side table I bought:

And here it is with a fresh coat of paint and some
Anthropologie handles:

The headboard, pillows and bedskirt were made.
The bedding was not.

It's girly, it's cozy, it's calm, and it's sweet!

So my budget for the project was $100 which made for
some creative projects. But luckily I could re-use a few
things from the nursery, and the bed was a hand-me-down.
So here's the breakdown:
DIY Bedskirt- $9 (can't beat $3/yd fabric!)
Bedside Table- $10 (had the paint)
Knobs-$16 (splurge!)
Sheets- $12
Comforter and Sham- $42
DIY Lamp- $4 (had the shade)
Wooden Bunny- $5 (West Elm)
DIY White ruffled pillows-FREE (had fabric)
Tan Pillow with Doily- had in nursery
Monogram Sign- had in nursery
Curtains- had in nursery (Pottery Barn Outlet)
Rocking Horse- had in nursery
Rocking Chair- gift from Grandparents

I know, I went over, but only by 9 dollars,
so I'm ok with that!

Linking up with:


  1. I love that you totally incorporated a lot of the stuff that you already had. I am now brainstorming of all the things I can do with my little guy's existing stuff to make a big boy room!

  2. Wow! Amazing! I love everything. The Anthropolgie handles are adorable.
