Show Me Another Grand Baby Nursery!
Better late than never! That’s what happens when a grand baby is born during Christmas season.
I have had such a blessed year by gaining 2 new grand children; Layla Elizabeth in July and Barrett James in October.
My daughter Katy and her husband Ben decided to wait until the due date to find out what they were having. In today’s time that could cause a lot of people stress when decorating the nursery. However, we enjoyed putting together a fun, colorful, gender neutral nursery. We are spoiled with access to a fantastic children’s fabric store @Graham Kracker in Midland who carry a wide array of fabulous fabrics, and mae all the custom bedding and curtains. In Show Me fashion you must first pick your theme/colors.
Katy loved Orange and Turquoise with a mixture of fun prints! Coordinating with the rest of her house she picked stripes and floral prints. She took the diamond fabric and had @SherwinWilliams match a paint color for the ceiling of the room. Painting the ceiling a color is a great option when ther is alot of pattern/color in the room. Katy had to use her negotiating skills with Ben, but in the end he agreed and even did the painting!
Next, Katy chose to re-purpose a dresser that belonged to her dad, Jim as a kid. She chose to paint it turquoise.
To dull the old finish and prepare it to paint, a de-glosser or liquid sand is used. This is available at @HomeDepot or @Lowes. With a t-shirt rag wipe over all the surfaces with the de-glosser following the manufactures instructions. Paint the furniture with @delta Ceramcoat acrlylic paint available @HobbyLobby, or @Michaels.
Tip: After desired color is achieved, use a wipe on poly varnish which is easy to apply using a t-shirt rag, follow manufactures instructions. Apply several coats for maximum protection. Matt, semi-gloss and gloss finishes are available.
Katy has a very eclectic taste and enjoyed mixing all the fabric choices and colors to create the perfect bedding and room for the new baby (boy or girl)!
What a fun room! The hand me down dresser sports a fresh coat of paint and the orange lamp adds a pop of color!
Re-using and repurposing an old piece of furniture is fun!
In addition to the crib bedding we also carried over the fabrics to the twin bed.
I hope you enjoy getting a few new ideas for a nursery!
