Decorating The Nursery



This week I have finally cleared out the spare room which will be baby boys nursery, hooray! Ever since we moved into this house last September the room has been used simply as a storage room even though I had my desk in there too! With the built in wardrobe emptied of it's boxes and finally put up in the attic out of the way and many items sold on I can now get to work on painting and decorating the nursery once I've bought some new paint brushes, CW Plant Hire have a great range of painting and decorating supplies which I will be looking into hiring. You may have recently seen my inspiration mood board here for the nursery and how I would like it to be when finished. I usually change my mind a lot, so no doubt this will change 100 times before it's actually completed but I'd like to think that I can get it done within the next few months and be finished before Christmas.

To be honest the room itself doesn't really need much doing to it, just a splash of paint to freshen the walls up and I would also like to paint the wardrobe doors if I can decide on what colour. I'd like to keep the room as neutral as possible so have opted for whites and creams along with grey. I recently popped into our local B&Q and picked up a few colour cards so I could choose a colour for the walls. At the moment they are a cream magnolia colour which the rest of the house is painted in too from when we moved in. It's nice enough but I would like it to be a little bit brighter in his room so have decided on a off white colour. 

Once the walls are painted I plan to make one wall a feature wall with these wall decals or similar black triangle ones which will hopefully look super cute! I was thinking of the wall where the cot will be against but I'm still undecided. His wardrobe is a built in one which was already in the room when we moved, I may paint the shelf at the top white and also the inside walls to freshen it up. I decided to buy the cubed unit and wicker baskets for more storage as the room is pretty small! That way I can keep everything neat and tiny stored away in the boxes. There's also plenty of room at the top behind the two wicker baskets for more boxes which can't be seen. I was planning on inserting another clothes rail but I thought I could just keep the smaller sizes on there and then everything else can be in the chest of drawers.

So there are my plans for the nursery, I will update you along the way when I've done more to it. I'm aiming to have it all done before he arrives just as I won't have time afterwards especially looking after a newborn and a toddler. When Amelia was born she didn't even have a nursery, her room was full of boxes and I didn't complete it until she was nearly one!

When did you have your little ones nursery ready?

  1. Aw, how exciting! Your plans sound lovely. We used Dulux cotton white everywhere in our house. It's such a nice off white colour. Not too white but not too creamy either! I'd recommend painting the inside of your wardrobe a nice grey colour. It will look lovely against your nice white baskets. Have fun! Xxx
