Black, White, and Wood Tones

“Vintage modern gender-neutral nursery” – that’s Mama’s description of my all-white nursery with black triangle decal accent wall and vintage wooden furniture. Mom loves my nursery – it’s her favorite room in the house. Based on the amount of love and work she put into it, I see why! I like it a lot, too. My favorite part is the newly new “Montessori” area. It has a mirror, instruments, my rocking chair, and lots of wooden toys.

Mom took these photos to remember my nursery before we transition to a toddler room. Dad stayed up a lot of nights painting the walls and ceiling completely white and removing the door from the closet when Mommy was in her “demanding nesting” phase. Mommy didn’t finish the entire room before I was born – she kept adding to the design over the past year. Want to know how she create a vintage modern nursery all for less than $400? Keep reading to see how she made it happen! But first, the pictures:

Mom says:

“Aside from the sunken cost of things that I already owned an used in or revamped for his room, this came out to be $369 that we spent over the course of a year, with most of it being an upfront cost. Some cribs alone cost more than that!”


You can create an amazing room for your baby, even on a small budget! Mom & Dad did just that when they made my vintage modern gender neutral nursery. If you want to photograph your nursery, too, Caden Lane has some good photography tips to teach you how to do it. What type of nursery will you give your baby who you make their budget-friendly (and eco-friendly) nursery? Whatever you do, I know it will be amazing.

Shopping, Style & Clothing, Thrift
I shopped at thrift stores to stock up on their gender-neutral clothes before Greyson was born.  We wanted to be surprised so we opted to not find out his gender!  I found the cutest newborn clothes, and it was exciting shopping for our baby-to-be.  Now, we go to the thrift stores together and find all of the cute baby boy clothes that he can fit.  We love holiday sales where we get half off of all of the clothes at their already low prices.  It is even more fun and exciting anticipating his next stage in life and the upcoming season. When I shop, I buy his clothes a little too big.  It would really defeat the act of saving money by thrift shopping if I buy clothes that are too little, right?  We had fun taking photos of Greyson’s first thrift haul.  We made this haul in November and the clothes are for the winter season.  He was 2-3 months old and we purchased 3 month and 3-6 month clothes.

What We Found for Baby at the Thrift Store

Some of our finds include zip-up footed onesie (we love those better than button-up footed onesies), plaid button-up shirts, Christmas pajamas, baseball tees, an All-Star baseball outfit, sweat pants (which are soooo cute on babies), and a corduroy overall and plaid button-up outfit.  Brand name finds include Carters (plaid shirts), Gap (pants/sweats), Okie Dokie, and apparently Pooh has his own brand of clothes, too!  Read about how a Winnie the Pooh shirt was my first official thrift store purchase when I was a young girl.  Josh’s mom kept the Pooh bear book from when he was a little boy, so now it’s like a family heirloom.  It further establishes Pooh Bear as a special part of our family story! baby surrounded by clothes from thrift store baby surrounded by clothes from thrift store baby surrounded by clothes from thrift store Carters baby clothes found at a thrift store Carters baby clothes found at a thrift store winnie the pooh outfit from thrift store and heirloom book Join us on social media by following Old World New Baby on Facebook and Instagram, and by using the hashtag #oldworldnewbaby for your natural and thrifty baby adventures! xoxo mamas, papas, and tiny human caregivers Addie
