DIY Nursery Decorating Ideas

Here are fun DIY nursery decorating ideas and projects for your baby's room. I know from experience that designing a nursery is one of the most exciting things you'll do in your home. Afterall, a baby coming means you are in full nesting mode! What a great time to have fun with decorating and try out a few do-it-yourself projects.

There is so much you can personalize here, from bedding to wall art to paint to furniture!

If you look at a few magazines you might get a little annoyed by the $8000 crib feature that so and so celebrity purchased for their little one. I just roll my eyes. Luxury items are beautiful, but what about the rest of us in the real world? Do it yourself! These are all ideas for those of us willing to get a little creative to acheive the $$$$ style on a realistic budget.

Jungle Themed Baby Room Ideas
Here are ideas for creating a jungle theme nursery, which is great for both boys and girls, which is probably why it is so popular with parents. Also great for shared rooms and playrooms too! Here are several ideas that showcase what we did on a shoestring budget in an apartment when we had our first baby.

We painted furniture, paintings, walls, made curtains and thrifted jungle themed lamps to make our baby room a style that would last a long time and would grow with our son.

Two fundamental things to keep in mind when planning out a baby room are comfort and safety. The space should be comfy for both you and baby. For example, don't buy a rocking chair or glider without trying it out first! It may look beautiful in a magazine, but when you wander in the room at 4 in the morning, comfort will be what you are most thankful for.

Some examples of decorating with safety in mind are using plexiglass instead of glass in framed art and not choosing decorations with sharp or fragile elements. Also, things should be hung securely and out of baby's reach. I am no safety expert (you can hire one to inspect your home) but these are a few ideas that should be obvious when you select decor items.

After all, it's your might as well love it!
