MiM: Nautical Nursery Reveal and DIY List

Posted on
Categories DIY, Make-It MondaysTags , , , ,

I shared my twins’ nursery on my own personal blog last month, but I am so excited to share it with the HDYDI readers too! This was certainly a labor of love- full of imagination, budgeting, hard work, many DIY projects, countless tutorials (both reading and writing of them), and many late nights of work after my husband got home from work. We finally finished it, with enough time before our little peanuts arrived to just sit back and enjoy our work. I hope you like it too!

If you want to see the entire post on my personal blog (and individual pictures), please go to: http://doyledispatch.com/house-tour/nursery/

Below the pictures, you will see a source list and my DIY list. I was really fortunate to have the time to do a lot of crafts myself. While I sometimes overspent on fabric or notions, I knew that I had underspent in other categories, which allowed me a bit of freedom for a slightly more flexible budget.

  1. A glider was passed on to me, and I am so grateful for it even after 20 months! We have a tiny nursery but I can’t imagine not having the chair in it. It’s where we read bedtime stories every night, and have a nurse and a cuddle first thing in the morning. And for those days where my little guy is not feeling well, being rocked to sleep in my arms is the best comfort. When we are done with it we will pass it along to someone else. It did not come with an ottoman, and we borrowed one for a time, but it was unnecessary and ended up acting as a table for the laundry basket.
