Decorating a Nursery

Time to Turn That Guest Bedroom Into a Nursery!

When baby makes three, it's time to take that extra bedroom in the house and convert it into a darling nursery. To kick off our nursery makeovers, I'm dishing on how I turned my scary old guest bedroom into a nursery with the hopes you will share yours with us, too! Join our Revamping Baby's Room group over in the LilSugar community and share your before and after pictures. Your room and style could be featured on the site.

To see the room and all of the improvements I made, just

During my first pregnancy, I paid attention to every detail to ensure she and I would both enjoy every moment in her abode. I chose to paint stripes in a gender-neutral green and decorated around that. I picked a white matelasse bedding with sage scalloped trimming and matching gingham sheets for her white crib. I mixed up the prints a bit with a toile glider that just so happened to have gingham piping, too. I picked up the bookcase at an antique flea market, painted it white, and replaced the knob with a delicate bird-adorned pull I scored from Anthropologie. And instead of spending a mini fortune on wall art, I painted a few animals and framed them with yellow gingham paper and white frames from IKEA. The final touch was hanging the gifted hot air balloon in the corner for my baby to gaze at as she lay on the changing table.

I can't wait to get started on our nursery. I have all the furniture and decor purchased but we have a renter living in that room right now and we told him he could stay until the end of October. That will give us 2 months to get the room ready for the baby.

We'll be doing this soon, hopefully ! (although the "guest" room is currently a "kitten nursery" for foster kittens :))

Great transformation! We had to do this, too. I think I took before pictures of our spare bedroom/storage area/general messiness that is now the nursery. I'll join the group and post them if I can find them.
