Nursery Decorating Ideas

Tons of nursery decorating ideas right here waiting to inspire you! Decorating a baby's room is an incredibly satisfying project, especially when you enter that "nesting" stage where you have sudden boundless energy to paint the ceiling at 3:00AM. (Please note: this may not be as much fun for your partner when you are ordering them around at 3:00AM, "Move that chair..." "No, try it on the other side of the room...") but I digress. Nursery! Decorating! So much fun!

The following pages have projects and ideas to get you started and to get your creative decorating juices flowing.

If you are on a limited budget, not to worry because so am I! I'm not even going to suggest you buy that $4000 crib with the $1000 crib sheet set, there are plenty of websites that will give you those "helpful" suggestions. These tips and projects are for the folks who want the $$$ style on a limited budget and are willing to roll up their sleeves and get a little creative. This is where the fun begins!
