their version: my version

You know how it goes...you get on Pinterest and see an image like this:

nautical nursery

You think, "I want that room!"
But how to make it happen?
How much would it cost?


Well here's my version:

Start with this color on the walls
Benjamin Moore Marine Blue



Except try this little trick to make the paint chalkboard paint


So you can have a fun wall like this somewhere in the room
for a kid's room - chalkboard walls (just buy chalk paint!)



Then instead of looking for an expensive boat blue print, try framing some similar fabric

Boat fabric!
via Etsy

Simply attach the fabric to the wall using staples, double-sided tape, or small nails. 
Frame it with trim- similar to this idea from BHG
remember for a playroom.  love the trim used as a large frame for the all the art.


The nautical flags make a big impact so they would have to be replicated.
Land of Nod makes a great and inexpensive banner.
Hang it or frame some individually!

This would be an "extra" but this print is adorable and perfect for the theme.

If you are itching to clone that sleek and shiny furniture, look no further than good ole IKEA.
NYVOLL 3 drawer chest IKEA Drawers with integrated damper that catches the closing drawers so that they close slowly, silently and softly.

NYVOLL 6-drawer dresser IKEA Drawers with integrated damper that catches the closing drawers so that they close slowly, silently and softly.



And set the room aglow with a strikingly similar white lamp...


Another extra that I just might have to splurge on if I were seriously doing this room...
