I’ve been enjoying playing around in baby land these last couple of weeks. Of course my mind immediately wanders to design and the other day I fell in love with furniture company,Nursery Works. Specially I fell in love with their uptown collection that is designed by House of Honey.
Now they are a bit (ok a ton) out of my price range, but I’ve already been trying to figure out ways I can do a DIY version.
Now when doing a look for less you need to keep in mind that’s okay to not get every detail exactly the same. You need to be open to some tweaks.
My crib version is a bit curvier and doesn’t have two drawers underneath, but for $379instead of $1,500 I think you can make it work. Add some campaign style pullsand paint on some trim in an accent color on the drawer and sides and we are in business.
I was able to find a file cabinet that fit the bill to mimic the look of the Uptown changing table. It is only $359 and comes in white (image was only available in espresso). The drawer fronts already have detailing that looks like the trim pieces in the original so I would just paint them out in an accent color and switch out the pulls with the campaign style ones. With the originals coming in at $2,700 I think I would work a little DIY magic.
