before and after // boho baby nursery Makeover


It has taken us forever to get this post together. We did this room half a year ago! This room belongs to Casey's niece in Casey's brothers house. We knew when we took on this project that this wouldn't be any ol' baby's room. (Casey's brother is lead singer of a heavy metal band. For real.) We knew that pink walls weren't going to cut it. We wanted it to be just girly enough, but still be something that her brother would like. There were some doubts in the beginning about the black walls (basically everyone thought we were crazy for having black girls nursery... Casey's mom especially) but in the end everyone really liked the results.
The first decision we made was the wallpaper. We had some ideas in mind, but you kind of have to be flexible with your ideas, because wallpaper options are limited. It is SO hard to find exactly what you are looking for. There is a lot of wallpaper in the world and a LOT of it is bad. So very bad. We were looking for a needle in a haystack that didn't cost a small fortune (all the fabulous wallpaper does of course). Since we knew we weren't going to be going the traditional girl nursery route, we stayed away from girly wallpaper. I will say that there are a lot of great girly wallpapers out there, just not exactly what we wanted. This jungle leaf wallpaper was the inspiration for the rest of the room The leaf print is silver metallic and so fun. We decided to paint the walls the same color as our dining room- cracked pepper by Behr.

*Side note- this black is great. If you are thinking about painting black and are really scared about it being too dark, use this one! It's not SO black, but you definitely think it's black. It's just softer.
Casey's stepdad, Richard, installed laminate flooring in this room. This was a major improvement from the painted red flooring before. Ick. We were also lucky enough that he also applied the wallpaper because it takes him 2 seconds. I'm confident it was take us 89 days at least...
We knew we wanted to have books displayed on a bookshelf like this, so we ended up DIYing it for close to nothing, compared to $12 for one (shorter) shelf. We filled the shelves with books about women and life lessons. This part was really fun and now I want to own a bunch of children's books.
This moon was created just by putting some sticky hooks on the wall in the shape of the moon and twisting the wire back and forth between each. The same method was used on the triangle in my own room
