Nursery on A Budget

Being on trend while still on budget while designing your dream nursery is obtainable! Designing your dream nursery into a Pinterest worthy space can seem impossible when considering your small budget and your design expertise consisting solely of binge watching HGTV’s Fixer Upper. With any overwhelming project, the first step in the design process is to develop a budget that works best for your lifestyle. Once you have committed to a budget, begin organizing your vision of your dream nursery into an inspiration board. The visual will make the design and shopping process that much easier!

Trendy nurseries don’t have to break your wallet. The key to creating a nursery on a budget is to make the space appear expensive and stylish. Knowing how to mix high end pieces that are worth the splurge with trendy inexpensive decorative pieces will be pivotal to the design process and your wallet. Cribs are typically a splurge worthy essential but appeal to your budget in the long run when the crib is convertible and can grow with your little one. Other furniture pieces in your nursery are all unique and splurge worthy to the new mother.

If you want to get the most use out of your furniture pieces, consider ditching the old school rocker, and instead using a decorative but comfortable chair to sing your little one to sleep. This chair should be neutral and consistent with other parts of your home decor so it could be incorporated into your living room or guest room a few years down the road! We love the antique yellow chair in this bohemian inspired nursery that would fit perfect in any room in the house!


A dresser refurnished to be a changing table is an inexpensive and easy way to save money. The dresser acts as a great way to mask the baby’s essentials and can also be reused in the future in other parts of your home! Using a gender neutral color scheme such as whites, grays, and tans will help with this transition from nursery to all over home decor! The white dresser above that was refurbished to be a changing table is the perfect fit for that gender neutral nursery. We love the way they added star knobs to make the nursery sweet and magical to fit their baby's personality!

Shop discount retailers to find trendy, inexpensive decorative pieces for your nursery! We love shopping at our favorite places like HomeGoods, Marshalls, Target, Hobby Lobby, and World Market to bring trendy pieces to the space on a budget!

In our California Dreaming Crib Collection, this relaxing nursery is perfect for your little beach babe and easy to recreate! We shopped discount retailers for our details in this nursery to help inspire and stretch your budget to its full capability!  HomeGoods is a great place to find all those little knick knacks that make a space personalized and unique! We found the wooden "3" for $9.99 and added the white basket to declutter the room for $29.99! Marshalls is also great for decorating on a budget. We found the neutral jute rug with a pop of turquoise at Marshall's for $19.99 and the white wooden sailboat for $7.99. We are loving Target's home decor lately! We found the white lamp with accents of natural wood and the artificial aloe plant to add warmth to the space! 

In our Navajo in Gold Crib Collection, this baby bedding is perfect for a bohemian nursery with Aztec detailing! We love this tan and white basket from HomeGoods ($19.99) that adds texture while still appealing to the overall color scheme. World Market has a great selection of unique rugs that we love! We were so excited when we found this tan and brown jute rug that sets the entire space! We love decorating side tables with fun items that match the theme of each nursery! We created this side table by adding Target's white schoolhouse inspired side lamp with metal detailing. The white and brown picture frame that holds priceless memories was found at HomeGoods for a cheap price of $7.99. If you love the little chevron decorative box  like we did, we found this little gem at World Market!

We loved creating this sweet and clean nursery with our Gray Bunnies Crib Collection from our Three Wishes brand! This nursery is perfect for a sweet girl or boy to create a gender neutral nursery. We shopped at HomeGoods to find budget friendly pieces to add to your space. We fell in love at HomeGoods with this grey and white wicker basket ($49.99) to hold all those stuffed animals that accumulate with time. A cheap way to bring high end decor to a nursery is adding decorative books to a side table. You can find decorative books that infuse things that you love in your nursery by stacking them on your side table to add dimension and height. (Check out your local thrift stores for great finds on decorative books!) We included a mirrored keep sake box from HomeGoods for $7.99 to top our book collection. 

In our Poppy-fields crib collection, navy and floral patterns welcome Spring into your nursery! This nursery is perfect for your sweet pea to blossom and grow in a fun and bright space. We incorporated different patterns and details of navy blue to emphasize our crib bedding. We infused a bohemian pattern in the accent rug that we found at Marshalls for only $12.99! Target was our saving grace for this nursery as we were on the hunt for the perfect pieces to blend navy touches in our decor. The navy candle from Target (which smells heavenly) was used for a decorative topper for our stacked books. Target's little polka dot bowl and ceramic potted roses is perfect for creating a trendy side table for your nursery. White brightens any nursery! We found our antique white side table at HomeGoods for a bargain of $49.99 and our sweet white picture frame for $7.99!
