When you look at the many pictures of nursery decor shared by other moms and dads, you will notice that many of the lights are either homemade or fixtures that were found in thrift stores, rewired and refurbished to save money AND to fit the vision of a DIY decorator with big dreams for their baby's first room.

Shop the thrift and consignment stores for old fixtures that can be cleaned up and rewired.

Nursery Chandeliers

A chandelier for the nursery might be an elegant light beaded with crystal or a delightfully casual ceiling fixture made from capiz shells that often doubles as a mobile to entertain a little one in the crib.

DIY Nursery Lights

Nursery Lamps

Table lamps for the baby's room come in modern styles in trendy flower, star and moon shapes as well as beautifully detailed replicas of vintage baby lamps popular in the last century.

Nursery night lights that plug into the electrical socket provide just enough "glow" for mom and dad without waking baby.

Nursery Floor Lamps

Floor lamps for the nursery come in styles with shades that complement rather than match the rest of the light sources. For example, a lamp with an ivory shade might be placed near the changing table area or on the baby's dresser in a style similar but not an exact duplicate of the pink chandelier on the ceiling above. The key is to stay in the style and color scheme while avoiding the "matchy-matchy" look of a set.

Large rooms often require the use of several table lamps in addition to the ceiling fixture to serve as task lighting.

Please make plans to visit us again soon to see more DIY light fixtures and to share your own ideas for decorating a nursery using unique, one-of-a kind lamps and fixtures.
