OWL NURSERY DECOR

Our Baby Girl's Bright Green Crib and Owl Baby Nursery Theme Decor
The first item we bought for our baby girl's owl nursery decor was Scarlett's baby bedding set. It's called Brooke and came from Pottery Barn Kids. The fabric is very colorful with colors ranging from pink and green to a pretty shade of aqua.

DIY OWL NURSERY DECOR
The touches of bright green in the owl baby bedding were what inspired us to paint the baby's crib green. The baby bed that we painted is a Jenny Lind style that was initially white. We primed it and then painted it green. We chose to spray prime it because of the spindles. We used Kilz brand spray primer that we bought at Home Depot and then spray painted it using Valspar's Garden Green from Lowe's. Spray painting and priming the crib was actually pretty easy. Giving the wooden crib a makeover to match our vision for Scarlett's owl nursery would have been more difficult to paint using a brush because of so many spindles.NURSERY WALL DECOR
I bought a set of alphabet cards from this etsy seller:
We also bought a few extra letters so that we could spell out our baby girl's name since we had some duplicates (a's and e's, mostly). To make the wall hanging, my husband hung some fishing line and I used brightly colored mini-clothespins to hang the letters on the invisible line.WALL PAINT COLOR
The aqua blue paint color of the nursery came from Lowe's home decorating center and the name is Grand Hotel Mackinac Island Blue. THE BENEFITS OF DIY NURSERY DECORATING IDEAS
As far as any other details - we had a lot of fun putting things together and doing it ourselves and it actually saved us quite a bit of money, too. Etsy was a great resource for finding the alphabet cards and the custom prints that I had framed.
I'm really pleased with how it all came together because I wasn't quite sure how it would all turn out. :) What is your favorite part of your baby girl's nursery?
Oh, and my favorite part of the baby's room has to be the "Penguin Classics" that I bought. They are the the fabric covered books that are on top of the wardrobe. They're just really fun and cute!From the webmaster:
