Neutral Nursery

We finally got a camera(thanks mom for the early Christmas gift)....so here is Baby Kelton's nursery!
We got an old armoire,pianted it white and added new hardware.  I have saved this old window for a couple of years and wanted to use it somewhere...it finally found a home in the nursery. I just love the way it turned out.



I really wanted a little something on the wall by the bed, but didn't want anything hanging over the bed...
so I came up with the idea of the tree and once I was brave enough I took a paint brush to the wall!  I just used the NO VOC Mythic trim paint for the tree and the left over Mythic paint from two other rooms for the green and blue leaves.  If this is something you have been wanting to do-go for it-you can always paint over it if it doesn't turn out as you had hoped!




I had beautiful oatmeal colored linen bedding made and I am so pleased with it.  




                                Etsy is a great source for good prices on custom made bedding. 



If you do not see exactly what you want-show them other pictures or give them measurements to help them create the exact look you are going for. For example, I loved this bedding, but wanted really large ties to create this droopy bow look.





                                          



The little changing table I painted a while back-it is now filled with clean baby clothes and diapers!
I have been packing for the hospital which is why there is "stuff" all over the top of the changing table.
I better get that bag ready...just two more weeks!


Since the room was so neutral, I choose a blue silk curtain and brought in color with a few self made art projects.  Who says blue has to be JUST for boys?!? I think the touches of blue and green throughout create a nice neutral, organic feel to the room and I could not be more happy with it!

Meredith, the nursery is absolutely beautiful! You did such a great job on the tree and leaves. I'm so impressed! Don't forget the Boppy at the hospital! It was a lifesaver but something you might not think about packing. Good luck!
