I (like all of you House of Turquoise followers) am obsessed with all things turquoise....and have been for as long as I can remember, so you can probably imagine how excited I am to be guest blogging here today.

I have used many shades of turquoise in the paint and decor of our home, but today I want to share with you the baby nursery that I recently DIY'd (on a major budget) for our daughter Vivienne (Vivi), who is set to arrive this June.

Once we found out we were having a girl, I immediately started thinking about the nursery and all of the possibility that this room had. I knew that turquoise would be the main color (duh), and while I am not a huge pink person, I wanted to add pops of hot pink/coral to girly it up just a bit (but not too much).

I also knew that I wanted a retro post modern style and to do the entire room from scratch for less than $500. Most people would think this is an impossible task, but I am the self proclaimed queen of DIY on a budget, so I was determined to make it happen.

Here is where I started:

And after 3 weeks of some solid DIY work (and many cans of spray paint...and a protective mask of course), I am pleased to introduce our $425 nursery!

(After you check out the photos, feel free to head over to my blog to read -in detail - how I pulled off the entire room on such a small budget. I also share project tutorials and links to some adorable free printable nursery art).

To take a home tour of the rooms that we have updated in our house (on a budget, of course) feel free to check out my blog.

Thanks for reading!
