The Baby Nursery

Okay, so here is the post that I have been so excited to share! I had a lot of fun decorating the nursery. It's not extravagent but it shows lots of personality and comfort for me and my sweet baby to enjoy together. I am really glad that it came together just as I wanted it to.




I have put links with items that you can purchase online, just for your convenience.

The entrance to the nursery starts off with the DIY Burlap Airplane Banner on the door. Click on the link to see how I made this in just 1 hour.

To the left of the door is the wall between the entrance door and the closet door so I put the changing table there. The space was perfect to be able to fit the Diaper Genie right beside it and a storage- organizer on the other side. The Diaper Genie is an item that I highly recommend having. I love having it right there beside us. It's very convenient.

The Crib is one of my favorite pieces of furniture in the nursery. I love the dark wood and the style of the crib. It just goes so good with the antique style. I found it at a garage sale for $80 (Crib and Changing Table together which was a steal!)


Here is a close up of the bedding that I HAD TO HAVE from Pottery Barn Kids. I loved this set and was willing to spend the money because I Loved It So Much! I have plans to use it for a girl as well with just a few modifications/additions… ;) The name of the bedding is called Harper and HERE is the link if you would like to view it on Pottery Barn Kids website. Oh and it's on sale now!


We found these Paper Mache Letters at Joanne's Fabric Store and spray painted them white. My husband's idea was to put Levi's name above the crib using these letters… Kudos to my Babe! It looks great! I had originally wanted a mural but I am glad we went with this because it will be easier for when we change things around or re-decorate! :-)


In the corners of the room, on either side of the crib, we hung airplanes from the ceiling. It really gave the room a nice look and feel! I love them. The big plane came from Marshall's and the two smaller planes came from Hobby Lobby. They matched perfectly!


I had a wicker chest that I decided would make a nice toy box and it looked great once we set it under the window and put a few of my favorite wooden toys on top. It's also perfect spot to keep the diaper bag! I haven't put up curtains yet because I don't know exactly what I want… So, I'll wait for inspiration to hit! The Diaper Bag is another favorite from Pottery Barn Kids and Yes, it is on sale now too! Maybe I'll snatch another one up for my next baby! Since the one I have is monogrammed, I'll be lucky if I get to re-use it. 


I've always loved a small bookshelf on the wall beside a rocker/glider. 



And here is the whole setup with the ottoman, as well. Don't you like the Glider and Ottoman? You can click here to see how we refinished the base and the cushions!


Want to see the whole picture? Here you go! I made the DIY Framed Memory Board and you can see all the details by clicking on this link! The dresser was a $40 garage sale find and we just painted it White (It was a light wood stain before). I spent weeks and probably a couple months trying to find the perfect handles for the drawers… Finally, when I was actually in the hospital, my awesome brother-in-law was at my house repainting the old handles on the dresser and made them look amazing. They look antique (but with a fresh coat of paint) so it goes perfectly with the nursery! 


My sister made the Canvas' Letters sitting on the ladder. I was so in love with them when I opened the package and I thought they looked perfect sitting right here!

Last but not least, the top of Levi's dresser with his little big piggy bank and 3D ultrasound pic! :-)


Well, I hope you have enjoyed a tour of the nursery! I have been anxious to share it with y'all! Leave a comment and let me know what you think!
