Modern DIY Nursery Reveal

Emma Grace’s nursery has been so much fun and I’m really happy with how it has turned out so far.  It was really important to me that while designing her room I take into consideration being able to have the room grow with her.  There were very few things that we actually bought that I didn’t change in some way or another either with fabric or paint.  The entire nursery was done on a very tight budget.  We didn’t mind spending money on things that were going to be key permanent fixtures in the room like her closet organizing system, new closet doors and trim as well as a crib that will convert into a toddler bed.  I also saved a TON of money by fixing up old furniture (her dresser and rocker) while creating other custom pieces from scratch (her bedding, side table and changing tray).  There are still several projects that I want to do before I really consider her nursery “done”.  The wall her dresser sits on has plenty of room for a bookshelf which she desperately needs since her books are all stacked up in her closet and on her floor.  I’m also embarrassed to say two of her walls are still blank and need artwork!!  I have a couple of fun ideas in mind so stay tuned!  I hope you enjoy taking a peek at into Emma Grace’s fun, modern, DIY nursery!

Once Emma Grace started pulling up we had to drop the mattress support down and take out the bumper we updated her crib with a bit of paint!  You can find all of the details here!

    • Hey Melissa! I actually created the monogram myself and it was pretty simple! To start I figured out how large I wanted my monogram to be and in a word document started by making her last initial as large as I wanted the monogram tall. Then I sized her first and middle initials accordingly and printed the three letters off and cut out around them. I then took the fabric I wanted to use, ironed it out smooth and then ironed Heat and Bond double sided heat bond onto the fabric. Next I took the letters I had printed and used them as a stencil to trace out the monogram onto the back side of the fabric on the Heat and Bond. I then cut out the letters, peeled the backing off, placed them where I wanted them on the fabric for the cornice and ironed according to the directions! It was a simple project that I think made a big statement in the room. Please let me know if you have any other questions and I’d be happy to answer them for you!!!

  5. I absolutely love the DIY window treatments and would love to know how you did the letters for my own daughters room. We’re working on her nursery now and she’s due in August! Thanks so much!

    • Thanks Angela!! Congrats on your baby girl! Emma Grace was originally supposed to be an August baby 🙂 It was actually a pretty simple project. I figured out what size I wanted the letters and created a template on the computer with a font I liked and printed it off. I then took my fabric and applied HeatnBond to the back (awesome product btw!) on the paper backing of the HeatnBond I traced my letters flipped over and then cut them out. Then all that was left was to iron the letters onto the second fabric that I used for the valance. Overall a quick and easy project that looks great and didn’t take much time or supplies!
