What do you get when you put some revamped dressers, animal toys, and a toddler in a room? An eclectic nursery that’s cool enough for a baby boy named Atlas! We’re touring Lana’s, of Making a House a Home, nursery for her little man on our baby blog today. Its exquisite design and DIY elements are quite impressive and yet it’s still functional and fun! We’re suckers for a good collage wall, especially one that incorporates a ukulele, a quote-able banner, and a ceramic turtle shell. Did we say how cool this room is already?
Atlas’s mom and dad did a great job of making this room fit (and safe) for a baby, while still being a space he can grow up in. Lana, the creator, says of how it all turned out: “Atlas loves to play in his room, and read books, and it’s super functional. We have a few more plans for this space (I don’t know if I still feel these curtains. I would like to find a softer rug. We may break down a wall to open up the room as A grows….), but for now it’s working out great.”
And because we know you’re wondering about the amazing (12 drawer!) dresser Lana says:
We married the campaign dressers we rehabbed and bought a piece of reclaimed wood to seamlessly create a top. The dressers were a $200 find off craigslist in New York and the reclaimed wood was $130 from a local spot here in Nashville. For $330 we got ourselves 12 functional drawers with a ton of storage. It works way better than the chair and a half I was trying to force in this spot.
