Soleil Moon Frye Helps Dads-To-Be Create The Perfect Nursery For Their Twins (VIDEO)

James and Randy are two expecting fathers who are in for a big change: They're having twins! To help these parents-to-be, Soleil Moon Frye and the "Home Made Simple" team step in to create the perfect nursery built for two.

To keep the makeover DIY-friendly, the team created ambient birdhouse nightlights that cost under $10 and re-purposed Randy's old desk into a changing table.

Watch the video above to see the sweet surprise when these fathers see the finished room for the first time.

"Home Made Simple" airs Saturdays at 9 a.m. ET on OWN.

  • Blue For Girls
    Chip Lay
    Blogger Joni Lay found her "baby blue" room paint on the more aqua end of the spectrum, a shade that could easily suit either a boy or a girl, especially since it's anchored by black and white. An arrangement of family photos above the changing table stand in for overly babyish art and double as a "family tree" of sorts.
  • Dark Walls

    Chocolate brown stands in perfectly for the more predictable pink in this twin girls' room by designer Natalie D'Urso of Milka Interiors. D'Urso brought in feminine flourishes by way of polka dot wall decals, pastel bedding and a set of pink suitcases instead, which means there's no repainting required if the room ever assumes another use.
  • Grown-Up Patterns

    Sleek surroundings (like the New York City skyline) call for equally streamlined sleeping quarters for one Manhattan-based baby. Design firm Lily Z. brought the traditional boy blue into more neutral territory, pairing navy with gray and yellow, throwing in some more grown-up nods to new life, including a Womb chair and an Egg lamp from Hive Modern.
  • Real Artwork
    Trevor Tondro
    A James Rosenquist screenprint titled "for the young artist" was the inspiration for Tilton Fenwick designer Anne Maxwell Foster's daughter's room. "People are often scared to buy real art for kids' bedrooms," Foster's design partner Suysel dePedro Cunningham says. But "it is impossible for a room to be too babyish when you have amazing art to anchor the room," she adds. To balance it all out, the duo added less expensive whimsical elements like a custom mobile from Etsy made of leftover fabrics from the room.
  • Black & White
    Maria Agustin
    Black and white are the ultimate equalizers, especially when layered over a gray backdrop as they were in this little lady's room. Patterns like polka dots and trellis keep the space from feeling too stark, while the wall decal from Urbanwalls pretty much sums up how we feel about the space.
  • A Mini Man Cave
    Men's suiting served as the inspiration for this "mini man cave" designed with items that could easily transition from one space to another. "If it can't be used in any room in my house, I don't want it," Project Nursery user Krob wrote.
  • Used Goods
    Heidi Geldhauser
    For her son's animal-themed nursery, designer Erica Loesing scoured Craig's List and thrift stores for the perfect sideboard-turned-changing-table and a collection of creatures, which she painted all the same hue. Other found objects include a mid-century ottoman that she had reupholstered and a vintage metal basket that holds baby blankets now, but could easily stow toys later on.
  • Fashion-Inspired
    Kelly green and white stripes are a dead giveaway to the inspiration for this room -- the original Kate Spade shopping bag. To create the look, Project Nursery user awightwick recommends buying a laser level for the painting job and using a credit card to seal painter's tape before painting stripes. It will make for a clean rip when you're done.
  • Save The Sex For Last
    Kelly Stuart
    Not only was fashion editor Violet Gaynor too busy writing a book throughout her pregnancy to decorate her baby-to-be's nursery, but she also left the baby's sex a surprise until birth. That means she was forced to keep the tiny office-turned-nursery neutral, which was a far cry from the lavender wall-to-wall carpeting that covered the space when it served as her own bedroom back in high school. Check out the adorable little person who occupies the room now.
