Our Nursery

When I first started thinking about the nursery I knew I wanted to keep it neutral so that we could use many of the big ticket items for future children.  More importantly, I wanted to create a space where I could watch my baby grow and evolve into a young boy.

I am a particularly sentimental person and I really wanted each aspect of the nursery to have a personal feel.  I made the decision to incorporate family heirlooms and handmade pieces to add that extra special touch to the room.

Frame and basket: Ikea, Yellow frame and art: Hobby Lobby, Clock, Lamp and shade: Walmart


Rocking Chair: Ikea, Pillows: Me (fabric from Hobby Lobby), Blanket and Pillow: MIL
I knew I would spend a lot of time rocking the baby so I wanted to make sure I created a space that was comfortable and convenient.  The nursing table is an heirloom from my family.  It is my grandmother's sewing table that had been her mother's and her mother's before her and so on.  She passed it down to me when I started sewing, but for now it serves a greater purpose.  The cross-stitched blanket was made by my mother in-law for my husband when she was pregnant with him.



I'm a reading specialist.  You can bet that our baby has already been read to and will be on a nightly basis throughout his life.  The artwork in the nursery is created by author/illustrator, Steven Kellogg, who my mother works for.  Our bookshelf is overflowing with great literature I've picked up along the way and so many of our friends blessed us with at our book shower.


Elephant nightlight: Walmart

Mobile: EDMobiles c/o

Since CT has started sleeping in his crib full time, I've realized the value of a well planned nursery.  Not only do I spend a lot of my time in here, but there are things that make life much more convenient so it's important to make it a room you love.

  3. My goodness look at all those books! I love books too, but I don't have that many for LM lol! I'm sure you're enjoying those! Lots to choose from. :) Love the grey and yellow theme! It's so cute. I seriously considered a grey and white theme before we went with the hunting theme but this is still one of my favorites!
