Brown Striped Nursery Walls - Dark and Light Brown Painted Wall Stripes in Our Baby Boy's Nursery

The plan for painting brown striped nursery walls all started when we were shopping for paint for the baby's room. We actually made so many trips to Lowe's that we now know many of the employees on a first name basis!

Initially, we had the thought that we would install a chair rail but realized that most of it would be hidden behind furniture.

I also thought that would wainscoting would look really good in the space and since our parents had some on hand.

My parents had three (3)sheets of wainscoting from a previous decorating project and the chandelier already on hand. So we only had to buy one (1) sheet of wainscoting, paint, and various other supplies.

After thinking things through a bit further we changed directions and came up with a more productive use of human and financial resources for the project. We decided to paint the stripes before proceeding with the installation of the wooden wainscoting. The vertical striped design would cost less than wallpaper and would add interest to the space.

And to top things off we would hang a mini chandelier in here. We had no construction experience whatsoever but we just researched nursery design a little on the internet, took our time and it turned out great!

It was really neat that we were renting two months ago and didn't think we'd be able to even do a nursery. But now that we own our own home, we have the nursery set up, the baby bedding looks lovely in the crib and everything is ready and waiting for our baby who is due in 30 days to arrive.

We completed this project at a cost of around $150.00 and painting the walls took about three (3) days of steady work. If we had bought all the supplies I would say that the completing the nursery's decor cost about $250.00.

Advice for Other Parents

I would advise other parents to look at the nursery pictures in the gallery here on Unique Baby Gear Ideas to see what others have done to get ideas on how to save money and time. I would also tell them that decorating a baby's room does not have to be expensive if they are willing to DIY some of the work themselves and buy secondhand furniture and fixtures.

Painting Brown Stripes
by: Cassi

I am also painting the walls of my baby's nursery in brown stripes. Well, actually, I am painting one accent wall in stripes and the other three in a solid color. It does take more time but paint is a lot cheaper than wallpaper and when I get tired of it or my son outgrows it; I will paint over it!
