A Project For
A fun, manly nursery with vintage, rustic and modern accents.
For our little boy's nursery, I wanted a fun manly room with vintage, modern and rustic accents, without having a "theme." I stuck with a basic color scheme of red, black, wood grain and yellow. The majority of the room's contents are more grown up than your typical nursery, but we didn't want to limit the decor to only appealing to his infant and toddler years.
I tried to incorporate elements of our life, all the while keeping it vintage. We paid tribute to our alma mater, Texas Tech University, the farming and ranching heritage we were raised in, and our love for music, hunting and sports.
Industrial. Vintage. Sports. Americana. Rustic.
Much of the decor accents we already owned, were a DIY project, or I picked up in a junk store!

My favorite items are the red and yellow wooden arrows! How fun!? And the rocker is a close tie. I wanted an overstuffed rocker/glider so bad, but was not willing to fork over the $400+ for a new one. Luckily, I found a used Pottery Barn rocker at a consignment store for $80! And it's so comfortable!
