Tips for Creating a Minimalist and Simple Nursery in Your Mid-Century Fixer Upper
In case you are looking forward to making some adjustments to the fixer upper you have been handed down to for the sake of creating some room for nurseries and the like, you will have some parts affected while others may just remain as they were anyway. For example, it may be possible or you to consider removing some of the parts such as the paneling in the kitchen and living rooms so as to make them more spacious, feeling more airy and fresher. However, for the nursery needs, the paneling in the bedroom may be left. Most fixer-uppers are often found in a set up of the traditional ranch formats, having a long hallway in the back and bedrooms on both.
First and foremost, deal with the carpeting there is in the house as you make attempt at creating such a new look in your fixer upper. Think of removing such old threadbare carpets that often happen to be in such fixer uppers for they often happen to be such that have lived therein for several years and as such quite worn out.

In your effort to make the room look more beautiful, think of adding such items such as rugs of the right color like the pink area rugs right in front of the crib and these do serve to make the room feel a lot warmer.
After you are done with this, it may be just as advisable for you to consider adding a dresser to the nursery. In the event that you happen to not know the gender of the baby yet, as it may be that they are still unborn, then it may be advisable for you to go for the plain and neutral items of furniture and accessories. The perfect color schemes for such are gray, white, green and white. Find some of these items from an online store that deals in such items of furniture and furnishings for your nursery. In between the crib and the dresser, consider adding a handmade swan baby rocker which can actually be made by a local craftsman in your area.
A handmade mobile would as well be an ideal addition to the crib, having it hung right above the crib. This may be simply created using paper star cutouts and a simple rod and ribbon hanging mechanism. The one fact about these is that they happen to be so light and delicate enough to hang safely from the ceiling and as well stay high enough away from the reach of the baby in the crib.
One other item of furniture that you may consider adding to the room is an old rocker.
