Kate Middleton is due to have her second prince or princess soon and that means we have royal baby on the brain. It seems we’re not alone in this because we’re seeing A LOT of royal baby inspired nursery designs floating around on Pinterest. We’d love these lux looks for our own little princes and princesses, but the fact of the matter is that we don’t all have kingly coffers. Don’t let that stop you! Here are royal baby nursery design ideas that anyone can do!

Give thrifty decor the Midas Touch.
These ornate frames give a room instant elegance and can be found pretty easily at thrift stores. Most of the time they don’t look this nice when you first find them, but with a little Midas Touch (aka gold spray paint) you’ll have gorgeous, glitzy glamour.

Make lux lighting for less.
Chic chandeliers seem to be a staple in regal looking nurseries, but they can ring in at hundreds or even thousands of dollars. Try DIY for a show-stopping chandelier that has all the drama without costing all the dough.

Create a canopy fit for a little king or queen.
A key piece in a royal baby nursery design is the bed crown and canopy. Ironically, this canopy is created using a simple set of queen sheets. (Maybe that’s more punny than ironic, but we think it’s kind of funny either way!)

Give old furniture a grandiose facelift.
Embellish and adorn old furniture to make it fit for a king. Almost anything can be painted to make it look like it belongs in a castle! This piece was made using lace as a stencil – so clever!

DIY dramatic drapes on a dime.
There are oodles of ideas for dramatic drapes on Pinterest (you’ll find some on our Pinboard below). Some use cheap sheets. Some are affordable drapes that have been embellished. Some you sew from scratch. Whatever you choose, hang them high and wide to make your windows seem bigger. And use the trick from the photo above – hang them using a curved shower curtain rod to amp up the opulence!
One final tip, to keep the room from looking like the king went mad, keep the color palette simple. Neutral tones appear to be the most popular and chic looking, but you can go bold, too – just try to stay a bit monochromatic.
