Baby Zeke turned one month over the weekend, so in celebration – we decided it was time to put together his nursery. As mentioned, the nursery was empty with the exception of furniture.
When creating his nursery, we had a few things I wanted to stay true to.
Affordable Furniture and Decor
With this being the second nursery we’ve done in the last year and a half – money is an object! In order to accommodate this fourth child with a room of his own, we had to renovate other parts of our house. The entire nursery was done for under $350.
Fun with No Theme
We wanted to keep the room fun, with no specific theme.
Keep the Brown Walls
With all the other rooms we had to paint in our house – I really did NOT want to paint (or have painted) yet another room!
Here are the results of our efforts.
The Nursery 1 of 13Brown walls stayed brown, with various pops of primary colors.
Wall 2 2 of 13I wanted a random wall, think that was accomplished :)
Wall 3 3 of 13I wanted to make sure we had something fun for Zeke to look at while changing him. He loves the colors!
Mirror of Fun 4 of 13I had this mirror from our daughter's nursery. Snake Stuffed Animal - $15 - Ikea
Flag Banners Decorate the Top of the Wall 5 of 13Flag Banners - $3.95 each (there are 2) - Target (look in the party section!)
Cubes and Shelves 6 of 13White Cubes - $10 - Target
Teal Shelves - $10 - Target
Stuffed Animal with Socks - $15 - Ikea
Other items were various baby gifts.
Photos 7 of 13Frames - $2 - Ikea
Z! 8 of 13This red "Z" I actually stole from his brother, who's name is Izaiah. :)
Fun Monster Canvas Art 9 of 13I fell in love with these monster art canvases over on Etsy. I loved the price even more.. $10 each! Yes, cheap and cute.
Flag Banner Curtains 10 of 13The flag banner curtains were a fun find! I think these tie the room together and gives us permission to add in various colors.
Flag Banner Curtains - $40 - Ikea
Corner Shelves 11 of 13The corner shelves were in the previous nursery. All items, with the exception of a frame were recycled goods from previous nurseries.
Monkey Grow Chart 12 of 13This monkey grow chart was a gift for our third child. The colors worked perfect, so we put it in Zeke's room.
The Before! 13 of 13Here is a shot of our nursery before. So glad to have this room near completion!
While this isn’t a designer’s dream nursery, for what we were wanting – it’s a winner!
Counting the crib and changing table (which were $200 together), we spent approximately $350 on Zeke’s nursery!
