Caspians Nursery Makeover

Here is a look at Caspian’s nursery. I’m about 8 months late on this entry, but better late than never right? I wanted it to have a soothing serene feel to it, and for him I liked shades of aqua and light blue. In the beginning I wanted a mickey mouse theme, but then I changed my mind as the room started looking tacky.

Here are some before pics:

To spruce up the room I just moved some furniture around, added some floating shelves, a rug and valances.

It’s amazing what a difference adding just a few pieces can make. I felt like the whole room was transformed by adding a rug, valances, and a few pieces on the wall. Simple as that. AND i did it all on a budget. I didn’t want to break the bank because I was simultaneously decorating Valentino’s room. Click here to see how his room turned out.

I used a lot of stuff that we already had, and I switched their huge stuffed animals. I put Caspian’s huge mickey mouse stuffed animal in Valentino’s room as he had a lot of reds, and I moved Valentino’s big white bears to Caspian’s room as it seemed to be a better fit. I also spray painted the big wooden letters hung above Caspian’s crib. I made the pom pom garland hanging from the valances and sewed the little rain clouds hanging from the floating shelves. Yes, I actually sewed something! CLAP FOR ME!! You wouldn’t appreciate my excitement about sewing something unless you knew the old me, who was so undomesticated that my cooking skills only went as far as boiling water.

The valances, rug and little baby chair were purchased from Pottery Barn. The crib and furniture are all from Amazon, and the floating shelves are from Target. The baby lamp is from Babies R Us, and the wall prints are from Etsy. The glider was from Walmart and cost less than the baby blue chair from Pottery Barn. Crazy huh?

Originally I wanted to find a big ancient map of the Caspian Sea and surrounding areas, frame it, and put it above Caspian’s crib. However, that was impossible to find, so his name in wooden letters availed.

And here is Caspian, just hanging out doing some yoga, enjoying his room…..
