Parenthood was a bit of a surprise - and an exiting new adventure - for Jenn and LeVaughn. The couple works with the BABY MAKES 3 team to create a royal atmosphere for their daughter, with new painting techniques, no-sew curtains, and a unique family decor project.
Fit for a Queen
We return to the home of Jenn and LeVaughn to complete their daughter's nursery, taking care of some child-proofing needs and adding the final decorative touches just in time for the new baby's homecoming.
Alex and Aaron's early dates together included late nights on the lawn of an observatory, which gave our couple the idea for a celestial-themed nursery for their baby girl. The project gets started with cloud-inspired ceiling trim and a sensory wall. A local muralist joins in to help create a "stellar" growth chart.
This episode opens at the home of our grandparents-to-be, converting granddad's office into a daytime nursery space. At Alex and Aaron's, the BABY MAKES 3 team will build a moon-themed wall bookshelf, add a star ceiling, and show parents how to create a time capsule for their newborn.
Home Is Where The Crib Is
Space is an issue, so the BABY MAKES 3 team is looking to make the most of every inch. The crew gets a start on baby's fairy-themed nursery by converting a crawl space under the steps for storage or play area, creating a built-in dresser in the closet, and designing a starlit ceiling.
As The Potter Wheel Turns
Pottery is an important part of the culture in Mat's hometown in Slovakia, so the BABY MAKES 3 team takes the couple to a local pottery studio to create a special family keepsake. They add some painted fairies to the walls and finish the amazing illuminated ceiling. Finally, a child safety walk-through ensures everything is ready for the new arrival.
It Takes A Community
Tracy and Brad give a tour of Pacifica, the environmentally conscious co-housing community where they live. The BABY MAKES 3 team discusses how they'll work to create an eco-friendly nursery using materials that are safe in every respect. They build a pipe bookshelf, begin their update of the bathroom, and build a book stack lamp from scratch.
Tracy and Brad continue their journey to parenthood by working with a local bookbinder to create a journal for their baby. At home, the BABY MAKES 3 team are putting down eco-friendly carpet tile, building a book-themed signpost, and fitting out the nursery with other organically fashioned projects.
Boy Or Girl
Anna and Joe want to wait to learn the gender of their baby, and this decision shapes the design of their nursery. The BABY MAKES 3 team begins with a plan to bring the outdoors inside with a reclaimed wood wall, explain how to refurbish an old dresser, and help the jump rope champs fashion a personal project to inspire their baby.
With a specially milled lumber, the BABY MAKES 3 team helps the parents lay out a pattern for the accent wall. They open the room up for access with a Dutch door, then show parents how to anchor furniture to the wall for child safety. Camping comes inside when they add a play tent in the nursery for baby.
Run for the Roses
Katherine and Bryan left their hearts in Kentucky when they moved away and are looking for ways to share their Bluegrass roots with their new baby.
The Kentucky-themed nursery with reminders of horses and the Derby, old barns, and rolling hills is completed.
All Star Baby
After 18 years together including taking in a special needs teenager, Schrita and Shante welcome a baby of their own. Sports brings them all together.
Tight restrictions on painting and modifications for this family living in an apartment are no match for the Baby Makes 3 design team, and they hit a home run.
Beaches, Books, and Baby
Liz and CJ have chosen to use one of the larger rooms in their home for the nursery, creating a coastal-themed space that mom and dad can enjoy as well.
Drawing from the peace and tranquility our couple found during vacations at the beach, our coastal-themed nursery is completed.
Baby Makes 4
We're in the home of Marley and Michael, who have been surprised with twins - a happy challenge for first-time parents. The Baby Makes 3 team is here to help.
Side By Side
Travel is important to our couple, and they want to share their sense of worldwide wonder with their twins through an adventurous travel-themed nursery.
Crib for a Cub
Kate and Alex renovated a tiny 1930s mill house down to the last 90 square feet. That's baby's room with a cozy safari-themed twist.
The Baby Makes 3 team visit Carolina Tiger Rescue with the parents-to-be for a lesson in how this safari-themed nursery can give a child an appreciation for animals and nature.
