Black and White Decor Ideas for Nursery


Ashley found a white dresser at the thrift store. This is where I asked her what color and she said glossy black and I said what? Black gloss is very hard to paint so I compromised and said semi gloss please and she agreed.

  1. Sanded
  2. Primed
  3. Painted three coats
  4. Added gold knobs

Step 2

To give the room some pop Ashley added nursery accessories such as a modern style chandelier, a black and white rug and a gorgeous round crib which is from her first baby’s nursery. Theo her first born is already in a bed at 15 months. So it does help that she did not have to purchase another crib.

I was searching for something unique for my daughter black and white nursery! So when I was approach by Custom Star Map to collaborate with them. This was a sign from the stars that this would be perfect for the walls. It’s a great way to cherish life’s greatest moments. I choose to create a map with the baby’s name Preston, his birthdate and location. The location is very cool because they have it like a map with longitude and latitude.

  1. You pick a color.
  2. You personalized it with any font type you like.
  3. You pick the size.
  4. Map location of the event.

It’s super easy to create a custom star map!
