Description

Having a farming and ranching background on both sides of the family, we pulled a collection items from numerous family members to create this western themed room for our little cowboy.

I wanted to create a western a nursery that would grow with my son. I pulled inspiration from the many sentimental family items that I already had in my home, including my dad's leather baby belt, my great-grandparents longhorns that hung over the fireplace at their farmhouse, my husband's grandad's coatrack, and so on....

Advice

DON'T SETTLE. If you don't find what you want keep looking. As far as bedding is concerned, I recommend getting a custom set. The cost is comparable to store bought sets and it makes your child's room and bed different from everyone else. Plus you can get exactly what you envision.

    So cute! I love the tiny wagon on the shelf, and how you used a galvanized tub for the diapers. I love how you used different materials to spell his name out over his crib.

    I just noticed your pillow on the chair. Check out my web site….Gracie LaRae’s Boutique. I have a diaper cover set and blanket for a little buck-a-roo.

    Jennifer,

    Thanks! You can’t tell from the picture, but my dad’s first little leather belt with his name on the back is also on the shelf. The room has lots of little details, but that’s what makes it so special.

    Hi Larynk, when I was pregnant with my son, I have always dreamed of a western-style room, but no matter what I saw online I always found it very tacky. Not this one! I really love what you did with the room and with the theme! I’m sure Jett is loving every minute of it!

    Ysczabel,

    I felt the same way when I was trying to find ideas and items for the room. I wanted something that could grow with him. I feel like I achieved what I wanted to and hope he enjoys it for years to come. I appreciate your comment because it’s nice to know that I wasn’t the only one that felt that way! By posting pics of Jett’s room, I hope I am able to give others insipration that they aren’t able to find elsewhere. Thank you so much!

    Thanks Bri! Now I’m ready to help make special rooms for Beau and the girlies. We will have to make Ryker a big boy room. It’s easy to make things special when you have a family that as full of love as ours!
