Let me start by saying, I am not a photographer. That being said, get ready for the best pictures this blog has ever seen. They aren’t the best because of how they look, but they show the best/most exciting thing ever. How’s that for an introduction? Let’s take a peek into Baby Davis’s nursery!
The idea for this room started with my crib. I knew I wanted to use it, and I love the classic look of it. Before we even knew that we were having a boy, I knew it would be in there. The next purchase was the wall art. I found those at Dirt Cheap for about $3 apiece. I bought them thinking I could work them in somewhere in the actual living space of the house, but they just lived in the closet for awhile. They’re “paintings” on wood, and I liked that better than just a similar print.
That dresser was a Craigslist find. I always knew it would be a changing table, but it had a previous life in our bedroom before we settled on our current dresser. It was already refinished and painted, and I love it! The drawers are really deep and are already housing diapers and some other baby necessities.
When I saw this pin (links here), I knew I needed that rug. The more I got to looking, the more I thought that the tomato red color just wasn’t what I was going for, but I loved the style! I googled the brand, and found the one we settled on. The colors are much more muted than the other one we looked at, but they still match the pictures on the the wall.
The final piece of furniture is a wardrobe that came from my grandmother’s house. It belonged to her mother, and I’ve always thought it was so cute! It even has a cute old-fashioned key that opens the mirrored doors. The drawers are deep, and I have a feeling I’ll be storing quite a bit in this piece. I’ll probably put his sound machine and maybe a picture on top since it’s not too tall and is close to the door (so I can turn the machine on, lights off, and slip out quietly).
The only other thing I want for this room is another basket that I can put books in. I’m on the hunt for something wide and trough-like (if that makes sense) that I can put next to a floor pillow or pouf of some sort to make a reading nook.
I love the way his room turned out, and I can’t wait for him to be here, so I can put him in it! Even Keith likes it…I know men aren’t typically into décor, but he got to keep his duck on the wall, and there is definitely nothing frou-frou about this room, so he’s on board! I’m sure we’ll add more things as we close in on these last few weeks (I can’t even…), but as of now, we are calling this room done!
Crib Sheet (Mine came from Target, but I couldn’t find the link. It says “Purple on Cream,” but it doesn’t look very purple in real life.)
Crib Skirt (tutorial – Yes we did use binder clips to attach it to the spring bottom.)
Curtains (Marshall’s, $19.99 for two blackout panels…winning!)
Burlap Basket (Hobby Lobby)
Art (Dirt Cheap)
Mattress (His mattress is nicer than ours…welcome to parenthood, I guess.)
