H's nursery took a long time...we couldn't agree on anything, I drove my husband crazy... but at some point it kind of all just happened. The room consists of a mix of new, repurposed and DIY projects. A lot of love went into this room.
I knew from the beginning I wanted something he could grow into, something that said 'little dude' opposed to 'little baby'. I love the current geometric and native trends across the web and we just mashed them together. I also had a lot of help from a very good friend of mine who loves interior design, she put together a few mood boards and we got some inspiration from there as well.
I'm very eclectic, I love for things to not match, but flow. My husband is pretty much the opposite...can see why we couldn't agree in the beginning!
DaVincni Jenny Lind Crib: Target
Fjell Dresser: IKEA
Rocking Chair: This was an antique I purchased and we refinished it, my dad did the stain and my husband and I did the upholstery.
Geometric Rug: Overstock
Curtains: Purchased plain white from Ikea and I made an arrow stamp by hand and then hand stamped the curtain panels.
Book Shelves: DIY
Wire Basket: T.J.Maxx
Bed Sheet & Changing Pad Cover: I sewed them myself using Sarah Watson Indian Summer patterns.
Art Prints: Paper Sparrow on Etsy
Mobile: This is a paper dream catcher that was started at my baby shower, guests strung up a feather and made a wish for our new baby boy.
Initial H: DIY using pallet wood (stained) and screws, my husband screwed every last one of those in there, time consuming but it looks awesome!
Its really hard to pick a favorite item, mine I think would be the bedding and my husband's would be the art.
My advice would be to take your time, don't let it stress you out. I made that mistake in the beginning and once I decided to just let it go it all just fell into place. And make it part of 'you', who you are and the things you love, after all that is what your babe will be. And be open to change, because you never know what can happen. 2 weeks after bringing H home from the hospital an oak tree crashed through the nursery ceiling destroying everything. Luckily H was in the bassinet in our room and we are all okay but now we have to start from scratch...minus the crib, dresser and art. Good thing I love decorating and DIY'ing!
