There is no denying that baby nursery items can be incredibly expensive. So, if you want to decorate your child’s bedroom without going bankrupt, it is best to stick with DIY designs. If this isn’t a task you have tackled before, you may be a bit uncertain about how to get started.
The good news is that we have outlined all the tips and tricks you need to know in this post. You will only have to make these concepts come to life. Then you and your newborn will be able to enjoy a tranquil and peaceful space.
Create Magical Lighting
As you may be aware, you should be careful when installing lighting in an infant’s room. This is because you can’t just rely on traditional bright light bulbs alone. While these may work some of the time, you often have to keep the lights in the nursery dimmed. This allows your newborn to fall asleep after a midnight feeding.
Fortunately, you can do this in a soft and magical way. Install Christmas lights on the ceiling so they look like stars. Since they give off only a muted glow, they will offer just enough light. They will also work to make the nursery look warm and cozy.
Paint Your Crib
These days, it isn’t a good idea to build a crib by yourself. Sure, it’s possible, but modern baby furniture has to adhere to strict safety codes. In fact, most crib accessories and essentials have to meet certain standards. This ensures that your little one is safe every time they are put down for a nap.
However, you can still dress up their crib! You can, for example, paint the crib to match your chosen paint template. This way, you could create a nice sense of cohesion. Just make sure to use non-toxic, baby-safe paint for this project.
Convert a Bookcase Into a Baby Closet
Do you want to minimize how much money you spend on baby furniture? Then this hack to turn a bookcase into a closet will come in handy. Best of all, it is incredibly simple to construct. All you need is a bookcase, some tools to remove a few shelves, and a tension rod.
Remove several of the middle shelves of the bookcase. This is the area you can use to hang your little one’s clothes or store larger baskets. The tension rod will be placed here at your desired level. Since bookcases aren’t as stable as regular closets, it is a good idea to fix it to the wall so that it won’t topple over.
Create Display Boxes Out of Wine Cases
Do you want stylish and creative spots? Then turn your wine cases into display boxes. All you have to do is fix the cases to the wall, with the hollow portion looking out. You can paint these or even place wallpaper just behind them to enhance the effect.
You can then keep toys, pictures, or anything else you like here. You could even set up this fixture right above the changing table. This way, you will have diapers and other changing accessories on hand whenever needed!
These are some of the ways you can decorate a nursery by yourself. There are so many options to choose from and you are sure to have a lot of fun with these projects.
