All of a sudden my little baby is seven months old and not so little. I really don’t know how that happened so quickly, but it did, and I figured I better hurry up and share his nursery with you guys before he has grown out of it.
I’m not going to say this room is perfect. There are still several things I’d like to change (I’m looking at you, ugly rocking chair), but I am still really happy with the way it has come together. And since we used furniture we already had, we were able to completely change the look of the room for about 300 bucks. [Be sure to see my nursery mood board and the before pictures here.]
Anyway. Come on in! Let’s check it out.
Of course, the cutest part of the whole room is my handsome little man. But, there’s some other good stuff in here too.
Like that hot air balloon mobile. I really like it.
You can see my tutorial on how to make a simple crib skirt here. The crib sheet is from Target. The diamond baby quilt was made by my mother. The rug is from RugsUSA. The basket is from Target. I got two curtain panels for 20 bucks (steal!) from Home Goods, and I made them longer by adding the navy panel to the bottoms.
I’m pretty happy with those little lobster paintings, and I will be sharing a tutorial on how I made them soon.
That little yellow dresser used to live in my grandma’s basement. It could use a little love (some new hardware for sure), and I’m not sure if I want to paint it or not. But right now it’s a good place to keep some toys.
The lamp, lampshade, and fox figurine are from Target. I painted that little fox watercolor and made the ladies love gentleman print (inspired by this print). The pirate ship collage is a Hollie Chastain print.
This side of the room is maybe my favorite part. When we moved into this house one of the first things we did was take out the closet doors. Putting the changing table into the closet really increases the useable space in the room.
I painted the design on the wall in the closet nook back when this was my daughter’s nursery, and I loved it so much it was the one part of the room that I really didn’t want to change. You can read more about how I did it here.
We added a little bar into the corner to hang up all of the cutest clothes. The hot air balloon print is from Somewhat Simple. I got that wooden letter from Joann thinking I would paint or stain it, but when I put it in the room, I loved the way it looked so I just left the natural woodgrain as is. The crochet star garland is courtesy of Alice Remembers.
What do you think? I feel like I am constantly still figuring out my home decor style, but I think this room comes pretty close to capturing my style.
Linking up at some of my favorite parties.
