Infants and ToddlersBaby Nursery Decorating Ideas
One of the most exciting parts of preparing for your new baby is decorating the nursery. So many patters, colors, styles; the options are truly endless! Keep reading for a bit of guidance on creating the perfect atmosphere for your special delivery without breaking the bank.
If you are expecting a new baby, chances are you are looking forward to decorating a room especially for your newborn. A baby nursery is great fun to plan and decorate and you don't have to spend a fortune doing it! Even if you don't know if you're having a baby boy or a baby girl, you can come up with the perfect theme and color combination to really dress up an ordinary space into a delightful baby nursery.
Consider freehand painting if you're artistically inclined. If not, copy an image on overhead projector overlays and project them on the wall, painting over the image. The finished results will look like you illustrated the images yourself and you'll have fun doing it! You may even want to repurpose the image on your Baby Announcements. Make it a group project with help from friends and family if you want. On your Baby Shower Invitations, invite guests to stick around for a painting party.
Furnish. Baby furniture can be found at garage sales, thrift stores or online. The pieces don't have to match. Some of the most charming rooms are a collection of mismatched items. Add a fresh coat of paint if necessary. Include a rocking chair if you can and a nightlight in the room for middle of the night diaper changes.
Accessorize. If you're a seamstress, sew your own bedding and window treatments. If not, consider asking a friend or family member to help. Or, bargain shop and you are sure to find something perfect for your new little one. The hunt for that something special can be quite fun!
Personalize. For an extra special touch, personalize the room with the new baby's name. Paint it yourself or order online. Personalized wall decals are uniquely interesting. And don't forget to frame a copy of your Baby Birth Announcements for a simple wall decoration.
