Baby Girl Vegetable Garden Nursery Ideas

When sister's baby girl, Julia, was born, I offered to help design her nursery. My sister did not want your run of the mill baby design, so we came up with some baby girl vegetable garden baby nursery ideas that we thought nobody else had used and went to work!

The baby's room is small, with only one window that we covered with a roman shade. We fashioned a pull tab for the window treatment out of ribbon and felt that was very "vine-like" in appearance.

The nursery are painted in a soft eggplant, purple color. Here and there we drew and painted pictures of little critters that are seen in gardens; a cricket, a lady bug, and the rear legs of a rabbit hopping away for safety.

After the walls were painted and the window treatments were completed we decided to customize some furniture, one of the best baby girl vegetable garden baby nursery ideas that we had, actually. What we did was to take an old bureau that we found at a flea market and paint a border around the bottom of it. The decorative painting technique included green shoots that looked like the tops of carrots growing underground.

After the dresser was done, we sewed a ruffled slip cover for the nursery rocking chair that looked like the leaves of a cabbage. This design turned out to be great for late night feedings since the "leaves" double as a blanket!

This is a sweet and unique nursery and definitely not "run of the mill".
