My daughter-in-law and I wanted a whimsical type nursery but still wanted it to be masculine. We searched and searched for some type of inspiration to help us with a theme. Finally we came across a photo of a little girl kissing a frog prince and the theme was set. We knew from the beginning that we wanted a black and white color combination and finally settled on green for our third color. From that point we let our imaginations flow…
What brand and color of paint did you use? We used Valspar signature colors in Fresh Parsley, Black & White in a satin finish.
If you added stripes, polka dots or other paint effects, tell us how you did it. We added striped to the bottom part of the wall by taping off 12 in. sections and painting in alternating colors of black & white. For the top border of the wall we created a connecting diamond shaped pattern using a diamond stencil I created out of cardboard. I used a small circle sponge to add metallic gold dots where each diamond meets.
What brand of crib did you buy? Where from? Davinci Kalani convertible crib in Ebony purchased at Walmart.com.
What brand of furniture did you choose? Where did you buy it? Enchanted-Embassy Glider, Black with White piping- Walmart.com.
Changing table – The Bella Collection by Savanna in black -JC Penney.

How long did it take you? Was it easy, fun, difficult? What was your favorite part? This room was a true labor of Love…
I enjoyed every minute, difficult or easy in the process of designing this nursery, from the time I stitched my first stitch to the very last drop of paint. The process from start to finish was approximately 2 months of working weekends.
Did you do the entire nursery on your own or did someone help you? Who? What did they do? I wanted my grandson to have a room worthy of the prince that he is…
I created and did most of the work with the inspiration and ideas of my daughter-in-law to help along the way.
What do you love most about your little one's finished room? My favorite part of the room is the crown bed cornice custom made by a friend of mine…
It truly sets the theme of this Frog Prince Baby Nursery.
