Gender-Neutral Nursery Makeover
This room, from John and Sherry Petersik of younghouselove.com, boasts a gender-neutral scheme with a green base, pops of pink accents, and a bit of floral fabric. The pear-green walls are cheerful without being overpowering. The light aqua ceiling feels like you're staring up at the clear blue sky.
The closet door was removed in favor of a floral homemade floor-length curtain that can be pulled to the side for easy access. Adding a second hanging bar along with open shelves introduces even more function and storage.
A window-lit corner is the perfect spot for a reading area. A circle chair, footrest, and cozy throw are the perfect combination for a relaxing afternoon.
An asymmetrical arrangement feels anything but formal and showcases a collection of personalized pieces. This adds to the made-just-for-you feel of the room.
This leggy six-drawer piece for $20 was a bit worse for wear before. Luckily, a little sanding, staining, and painting solved the issues. The stained-bottom-meets-painted-top effect mimics the two-tone crib in this room.
Line the drawers with patterned wrapping paper to add even more personality. Storage here and in the closet keeps everything organized and easily accessible.
Building two floating shelves lets the homeowners show off kid-friendly accessories. Add a lip to make it easy to tuck in books and stuffed animals, keeping them easily corralled.
Create three airy orbs with a bit of florist's wire, then add faux hydrangea blossoms to each sphere with a quick thread stitch. For just $12 you can make a light and breezy accent that hangs from fishing wire above the changing table.
