Instagram Room Tour…Bennett’s Gray & Aqua Nursery

We LOVE Instagram!!  So we thought it would be fun to do a little room tour of Bennett’s Nursery since it probably won’t be a nursery for much longer.  They grow up so fast!!

Well here we go!  For some interest above the crib I painted horizontal stripes framed in with some white trim, added a simple shelf, a framed art printable and a chipboard letter painted white.

This darling side table was husband’s when he was a little boy…I have painted it a few times so with some work we tranformed it into this seaglass gem!

This dresser has been passed around to a few rooms in the house and found its way into  Bennett’s room.  I brushed on a fresh coat of white paint and added new hardware.  On the side of the dresser I attached a peg rail to hang misc items from.  The changing top was from PB Kids that I painted with Martha Stewart Interior Paint – Seaglass.

My super sweet and talented friend Dawn from Sassy Talk made this for me and it is a keepsake I will forever cherish.

Store bought curtain panels are never long enough so with a little help from my trusty sewing machine and my girl Martha Stewart, these panels from Home Depot were perfect once I added a band of fabric across the bottom.

Needing additional storage, I removed the doors to the closet and made my own version of built-ins.  I also added decorative paper to the backs for a little extra flair.  This cubicle piece and fabric bins are also by Martha Stewart at Home Depot.

This little elephant is one of my fave pieces in the room.  I found it for $2 at the thrift store.  A little spray paint and it made the perfect decorative accessory.

This lamp was repurposed from the previous nursery and happened to match the entire scheme perfectly.

I searched and searched for a sweet little lamp and found this one…the original lamp was pink and brown, but with a few coats of high gloss white spray paint, I was all set!!

 This little guy was also pink at one time but now he is a soft gray thanks to some more spray paint!

The final stop of the tour is with the fab little rocker we found a few years back at Pottery Barn Kids.  I have used it in the last two room and the kids LOVE it.  It adds just enough whimsical touch with its rocking horse presence and cabel knit coat (;  They don’t have this one anymore, but here is a link to a similar one

All of the wall paint was Behr Paint from Home Depot

Here are the colors used:

Wall Color – Dolphin Fin (gray)

Stripes – Banana Cream (yellow), Glacier Bay (Aqua) and Dolphin Fin (Gray)

    I’m interested in the crib bedding you paired with this nursery. Where did you get it?
    Thanks in advance!

      Hi Nikki! I actually made the crib skirt from a set of window panels and the sheets came from Pottery Barn Kids (;

  2. Lisa says

    Hello! I’m also interested in purchasing the “you are my sunshine” print. Any info would be appreciated.

    I love the ladder shelf, any chance you can share where it came from? I’ve looked everywhere for one that size for our small nursery.
    Thanks 🙂
