Nursery Nook

With living in a one bedroom, 630sqft home, we found some struggles with making a nursery for the baby.

First off, standard size cribs are HUGE!! Huge if you only have a corner to put the crib in. We found a crib on CL for $50. It’s from Ikea, but its actually from Sweden, and its their apt size one- so smaller, much smaller than ours. So much so that you can’t find crib sheets for it, so I made some.
It was originally an unfinished solid wood colour, we sanded it and painted it with a environmentally paint. It’s as green, as green can be. The guy during the demonstration of the paint will eat a bit of the paint to show that its non toxic and there was no fumes either! 

Because we didn’t know the gender of the baby we wanted to be a neutral as possible. Our room is already painted grey, so that is what we went off of. 

I also spent some time making the mobile. I wasn’t sure what theme to do, but thought why not clouds, and then from there came the rain drops and stars. 

The LOVE sign I bought for our wedding but never used it, and the wood behind it was a random scrap that we found at Rona that we paid a few bucks for and then I also painted it. Brent added the LOVE onto it. 

I also saw lots of “nursery art” on Etsy, we wanted Biblical verses but I didn’t want to spend the money on them. So I made them, and got them printed at Staples on some good quality paper. (We also don’t own a printer) 

We already had the ladder and used that for storage. 

and boom, thats our nursery nook.
