I have a secret to share with all of you today. This pink and green baby nursery was decorated for $150. Yes, you read that right and the figure is correct with no typos; $150.

I could have made everyone wait until the end of the tour to reveal exactly how much was spent decorating the room but that would have been jumping ahead of my story.

Zoey's mom, Delilah, began giving what was once the guest room a makeover to serve as a nursery knowing from the very beginning that she was working with a very limited budget.

To bring the project in within budget she repurposed items from other rooms of the home and basically put her imagination and creativity to the test.

Here's another spoiler; she passed with flying colors.

One of my favorite decorations in the room is Zoey's name framed by a lime green oval frame. This old frame had been in the family's garage until it was painted with green wall paint and put on display. The wooden wall letters were picked up on clearance sale for a song at Hobby Lobby but here I am jumping ahead of myself once again.

Baby Girl Nursery Themes great for a pink and green color scheme

The first step taken to transform the space and make it fit her baby girl's personality was to change the color of the walls from a dark (navy?) blue to a pretty combination of bright pink and lime green. It took a LOT of paint plus a coat of primer to cover the blue paint but as you can see the results were worth every bucket and brush stroke!

The combination dollhouse bookcase that belonged to Zoey's big sister and the armoire previously located in her brother's room were moved into Zoey's new room after the walls and trim were painted and the carpet was steam cleaned.

And then Delilah accomplished what so many of us only dream of; she found matching curtains at Walmart. I NEVER get that lucky, do you?

The crib belonged to one of Zoey's older siblings. Mom expressed regret that her crib was not white but I think the natural wood finish looks really nice in the pink and green baby nursery.

And of course we have to get a closer look at this sweet baby girl's bedding set!

The heart print crib duvet, Zoey's pillowcase, the green baby blanket and the large, green leaf were all found at IKEA. The coordinating pink fitted crib sheet came from Target. Delilah really has a knack for putting things together! I'm amazed at how well the circles and polka dots of the curtains and the hearts in the bedding go together not to mention how the colors all seem to match perfectly. Seriously, that is impressive.

The polka dot tins that we see on top of the baby's armoire at IKEA were in the bathroom section at IKEA and even they turned out to be a super match to the nursery curtains! The bright green storage bins came from Target and once again, the perfect color!

What a lovely baby girl nursery design this is! And it's all the more outstanding knowing that it only cost $150 from start to finish. I know that's really hard to believe but it's true. You can (and should) visit

I think that decorating a nursery for less than $500 would be impossible unless most of the furniture was given to you!

Less than $1000
by: Andi

I have made a list of everything we need for the nursery and the amount that I came up with that we would have to spend came to ten times (plus?) the amount that Delia spent on her project. Tonight we are going to re-visit our must-haves for the nursery and reconsider buying secondhand furniture where we had previously budgeted for a new crib and armoire. Thanks to Delia for the visual inspiration that a cute room can be achieved for less.

Most people spend more than $150 for the crib linens alone much less decorating the entire room for that. I'm very impressed with how you made the most of the money you had to spend and most of all, the results!
