I am continuing Tuesdays post "Orange Rocker" with a complete look at Doak's nursery and decided to dedicate the next couple posts to him since he turns 4 months old today!
He has inspired me to be super creative while staying on a budget. Between the details in his room and his baby showers there were a ton of great DIY ideas that I would be glad share.
|Color scheme |
Wall Color: Stormy Cove-Valspar
Fitting for the theme, "Calm Before the Storm."
Accent colors: Chocolate, orange and avocado.

|Bella hanging out on a Target area rug. The colors are perfect and I found it in clearance for $30!|
|Large DIY mirror for super cheap! $12 total|
tip: I hung nine mirror tiles and added round natural wood discs to each corner to complete the look. The dresser, tables and futon are natural colored wood so this was a great way to tie it all together.
|I absolutely LOVE the wall decals from Dali Decals. The tree was the first idea for the room. Everything else just grew from there.|
I mixed two different decals to get this look. I used the tree decal with the birds flying to create a windy storm effect.
|I used three birch colored LACK side tables from IKEA for only $10 each. I placed storage bins underneath for books and toys. I liked the table idea instead of a bookshelf because he can use them to play on and the will eventually become his nightstand on either side of his full size bed.|
note: His crib turns into a full headboard and footboard. Always thinking about function for the future.

samples worked out
wall art, pillows and a gorgeous
|I used wood hooks with his initials, Doak Walker Molitor, for his hat collection. Found them at Michael's in the dollar section!|
|FILLSTA Lighting fixture from IKEA|
LOVE the bird decals on the ceiling
|I used the 6 drawer Malm Dresser from IKEA and added a changing cushion instead of getting a changing table so that he can use it throughout his teens.|
note: Doak is crazy about the carpet samples above, as you can see, so changing his diaper is simple because there is something to grab his attention.
|I use a $12 laundry drying rod to hold his cloth diapers. They are conveniently placed next to the "changing table" and add a bit of color. |
Best part: We are saving money, saving some room in the landfills and he looks adorable in them.
|Babies up! : )|
