If your new year’s resolution is to create your dream nursery, or even to revamp your current one, this post is for you. We are in the slow, slow process of adopting, so I have had a LOT of time on my hands to work on our nursery. I’m so excited to pass along some of my tricks and tips to you today! We’re on a tight budget, so everything I’m about to share is super low cost and budget friendly.
1. Don’t buy an expensive set of matching furniture. Instead, mix and match furniture pieces from flea markets and second hand shops. As long as the colors are similar, varying styles don’t matter. The crib I got for just $20 from an online swap site; the armoire I found in the deep discount section of a local second hand shop.
2. Create more focal depth in your nursery by hanging décor from your ceilings. I made these DIY hot air balloons from paper lanterns and burlap covered party favor boxes for around $2 each.
3. Instead of bulky, pricy bookshelves you can use spice racks on the wall to display books within easy reach of tiny hands. By showing the book’s cover, instead of the spine, children are more likely to show an interest.
