I was so happy to be able to decorate this nursery for my cousin Jenna & her husband Justin, who are awaiting the arrival of their first child. The jumping off point for the decor was the "you are my sunshine print" that Jenna bought on Etsy. I tried to further the 'weather theme' with a sun and clouds chenille blanket, a cloud mobile, and a bird wall sculpture above the crib. I made striped Roman shades for the four windows in the room, which you can find instructions for here. We decided to open up the closet space and make it part of the room, however I made a curtain door in case they need to close it off. I also covered the boring wood curtain rod with fabric matching that of the Roman shades. To see more of this nursery, check out my flickr photostream here, and for those interested, I will be posting instructions for making the cloud mobile and a few of the other things I made for the room in following posts.
