Nursery Tour: Preppy Pink


We all love gushing over an adorable nursery so here to provide you with a peek of her daugher’s is Debbie, our first guest on DMB’s Local Nursery Tour. Enjoy!


This Nursery Belongs To: Jayden Mercy

Location: Dallas, TX

Room Size: 11 X 11

What was your inspiration for this room? My inspiration was a friend’s sweet puppy and/or honeysuckle pink and navy color combination. Though our little Jayden is our second baby girl, she is the first we got to decorate a girly nursery for since we chose to keep our first daughter’s gender a surprise.

What did you do first in this room? I don’t remember where I found the pattern we used on the wall but I knew we had to incorporate it somehow. Once it was on the wall, I painted the navy puppy silhouettes on canvas’ I found on sale (2 for $3.25 due to minor damage) at Michael’s. The rest of the room came together so easily after that!

What is one thing you are most proud of about this room? My proudest DIY project in this room would definitely have to be the white puppy pillow because I’ve never sewn a pillow before that. And the chandy/mobile would come in a close second! (Debbie also designed, printed and then framed Jayden’s birth announcement!)

What was one of the biggest challenges you faced? The biggest challenge I came across was finding bedding that fit the color scheme. So I bought solid baby pink crib sheets, a solid navy bumper and sewed up my own crib skirt. (Ps. I plan on turning the bed skirt into valances once they’re done being a part of the “crib bedding”)

Were you working with a budget when designing this nursery? Our budget: This room was created on a budget, of course. (We take good care of Ruben – he is currently our only source of income!!!) We spent more or less about $100. We already had most of the stuff. We painted the crib & changing table white. The glider was given to us by a friend who no longer needed it. We basically only bought paint, the mirror over the changing table, fabric for the bed skirt, canvases and curtains.
