Nursery Room Remodel

I’m so excited to share the Nursery Room Remodel. I hope you’ll enjoy the before and afters as much as I enjoyed doing all the changes and bringing it to life.

Nursery with gray wood accent wall with a white crib, plant and a rocking chair.

nursery remodel-

With the birth of Elijah, we have officially outgrown our ranch home. Though we have a full basement and the older boys have their rooms down there, it’s getting really tight for our soon to be family of nine. We have been hunting for land to build but without success, so we are stuck here for just a little bit longer.

Nathan joined his brothers downstairs and we turned his room into the baby’s nursery, well should say “babies” nursery since there’s one more on the way.

I don’t like clutter and so we kept it to a minimal and I’m so happy with the results of the “less is more” look.

area rug-

The biggest problem I had was the Rug. It took 3 purchases and returns before I found the one I absolutely LOVED and here it is. It’s so soft and not too boring yet adds so much character to the room. What do you think?

I also just love the Foot Stool Ottoman. It was a little pricier than I normally like to spend but once I received it, I knew I wasn’t returning it, SO CUTE!

colors-

We had already changed the carpets to floors a few years back so I was in a bit of a pickle. The floors were a tan/brown with gray streaks and I wanted to do a gray accent wall. Hubby and I went to Home Depot and we found the perfect color. It brought out the gray in the flooring yet didn’t clash with the rest of the colors – love! It so beautiful in real life, the pictures don’t give it justice.

design on the main wall-

The color of the wall was a bright blue and we needed two thick layers of paint so the blue wouldn’t bleed through.

He then measured and painted the wood pieces for the wall design. Once he nailed them to the wall, we were just able to touch up the seams and the wall was done. I love it.

furniture & decor-

The room isn’t very large and I didn’t want to overdue on the furniture so I just purchased a simple Crib and a Dresser (both from Amazon, because I hate shopping). I was pleasantly surprised by how good the quality was on the crib and the dresser. 

I really like the look of the Ladder Bookshelf, I can continually swap out the decor on it as needed.

I found the rabbit prints at HomeGoods so just added a cute Rabbit Pillow and the Stuffed Rabbit and the Rabbit figurine as decor to the room. (The stuffed animal was so soft and Elijah sleeps with it, probably my favorite purchase).

Here are similar Bunny prints that we have on the wall.

finishing touches-

His closet door handles were the boring simple handles so we upgraded the Door Handles and they gave so much life to that side of the wall.

For the blanket, I purchased this White Throw Blanket that just was a nice finish to the room. I wanted something neutral and it’s sooo soft, love it.

plant lady-

I also purchased 3 plants for his room, please send help, this plant lady needs to STOP! But how could I pass them up! Aside from the stuffed animal rabbit, the plants were my favorite purchases, LOL. (Cause you know, a baby room needs plants, sigh!)

The large plant is called a snake plant and here’s the Basket I used as a plant holder.

plants explained-

Okay, can I take a minute to explain myself on the plants, please?

So, I spend time in that room, I will need to clean it and rock the new baby to sleep. I need something really pleasant to look at. As much as I love the look of diapers, and toddler toys, and bottles – the plants just make me HAPPY.

And of course, the green adds life to the white.

There!! I hope my explanation makes a ton of sense.

Can someone back me up on this?!

Here’s the room before we started the remodel. I’d say the changes are breathtaking.

Thanks for visiting, friends. I hope you enjoyed the post. 🙂

P.S. We get to find out whether a sister or brother will be joining Elijah in this room in just 2 weeks. #SQUEALS!

Though I’m almost beyond confident it’s another boy, we shall see.

Fondly,

Tim & Valentina

    1. Thank you so much for the sweet comment, Olga. We are excited and scared at the same time, one more life to be responsible for. If God entrusted this child to us, He will help us with everything needed. Have a most wonderful end of year.

    1. Thank you, kindly! Though I am holding my breath hoping the child is a girl, we will love the boy just as much.
      Thank you for being a part of our online family. Wishing you many blessings.

  1. Great job on the nursery! Love that it’s gender mitral and those bunnies!
    I was looking for a plant lady to ask…. where do you buy your plants from? I am looking into getting a few for my house and wasn’t sure where to start.

    1. Tania, Thanks for the sweet comment.
      Oh, how I love this plant hobby of mine (especially now that I can keep them alive). If you have HomeDepot or Lowes in your area, they both have indoor plants, or a nursery (though they are usually pricier there).
      Determine the lighting you have to work with, different plants require different atmospheres. Now I just water my ladies and gentlemen once a week (and yes, they all have names) and just a little trimming as needed. You can’t help but add to your plant family. I’d highly recommend a Fiddle Leaf Fig plant for a larger plant, it’s absolutely gorgeous!
      If you have any more questions, contact me via email, it’s under our CONTACT page. 🙂

    1. You are so kind, Olga. You’re making me blush here. Glory to God for giving me all I have and all that I am.
      Blessings upon you and your family.

  2. I absolutely love how you’ve designed this room! I don’t do well with clutter either… and the colors “and plants” are so calming. You and your husband are a great team!

    1. Thank you so much, Tamra! We really are a great team, I feel so blessed to have him. I’m liking your view on my plants, thank you, ha! <3 Have a MOST blessed end of the year.

  3. Wow, beautiful! Please come design my house and keep my plants alive! 🙂 Blessings to you as you get ready for one more tiny arrival!

    1. Oksi, thank you for the sweet comment. Well, to be fair, I did kill quite a few of them before we became friends and plants now know they are welcome in our home to stay, ha! 😉
      I’ll accept the blessings and wishing you and your family the same.

  4. Valentina, thank you very much for sharing, it is such an inspiration for me!!!
    I’m not a designer at all, so it helped me get some ideas!😍

    Thanks again

    1. That just makes my day, Natalia. Especially since decorating and design is my biggest passion and what I went to school for.
      We have our bedroom planned to post as well and we have been looking for land to build. So when we are doing that, I will definitely do tutorials and pictures there. I love something that looks great but is very affordable and simple – something everyone can be inspired by. 🙂
