Pick two or three furniture pieces that will be the focus of the baby nursery.
Whether it’s a changing table, the crib, or a set of bookshelves topped with toys and other baby items, decide on 3 key pieces that will serve as the main focus of the room. Don’t overbuy furniture as it will clutter up the baby room. Map out where you want everything to be placed so you can blend different pieces and accents to create a balanced look.

Look for used furniture you can paint yourself.
Search local classifieds or auction sites like eBay for lightly used furnishings that you can paint and decorate yourself. Some used baby furniture might still be in great condition and only need a minor touchup. Other furnishings may end up being a major DIY project but you will save a good amount of money on these basics in the end as well as giving you the chance to make your room stand out with furniture color choice. Don’t forget to use No VOC paint.
Use toys as décor for the baby room.
Oversized plush toys, a stack of games, or an assortment of learning toys are some essential items to have in a baby room and can also serve as decorative pieces! Set up a toy area in one corner of the room and stack up different types of toys. This will quickly become one of the main focal points of the room and also add some color to the space.
Decorate with nursery room wall decals.
Wall decals are an affordable alternative to painting a bare wall with a design. Remember that labor costs for decorating a baby room are usually some of the biggest expenses for the room makeover. Save yourself some time and money by picking up a pack of fun wall decals. Take your pick of Disney characters, storybook characters, animals, cars and planes, or even full-wall murals that can just be stuck to the wall in seconds. Some of these decals are reusable and these can be taken off the wall without causing any damage. If you do want to splurge a little, consider ordering a custom decal with the baby’s name.
Sew your own curtains for the baby room.
Head to a local fabric store to check out their sale or clearance section. Many fabric stores are overstocked on popular reams of fabric and will offer some great discounts for even smaller cuts of fabric.
