  • Brandee Gonsalves

    Where did you get the ABC framed artwork from and the mirror circles? The room is super cute. Love the colors =) great job!

  • Sara

    Where did you get the striped fabric on the curtains?

  • Hollyjwsmall

    I love the alphabet collage and all the pictures in the room. Great Job!!

  • Starlight Juliet

    Where did you get the idea for the stripes? It’s brilliant! Great job.

  • The Unglamorous Mommy

    Brandee Gonsalves,

    Thank you!! The alphabet wall was a DIY project. I ordered unfinished wooden letters in different sizes and fonts. I painted to match the room and mounted on a piece of wainscoating that we framed out. The mirrors are from Hobby Lobby. They are the mirror plates that you use to put candles out on a table. We attached them to the wall with a ton of Command strips.

  • The Unglamorous Mommy


    The striped fabric on the curtains is actually ribbon. I added some white fabric to the dot panel to give it length. I then found ribbon in different widths and colors that matched and randomly glued them in rows to the fabric. The same treatment was done to the lamp shade, a pillow, and the diaper caddy.

  • The Unglamorous Mommy

    Starlight Juliet,

    The stripe/boxes for the wall just kind of came to me. My husband had no idea what he was in for! :) The stripes on the curtains, lamp, pillow, and diaper caddy were DIY with ribbon. I wanted to mix up patterns in the room while keeping with the same set of colors.

  • The Unglamorous Mommy

    Thanks everyone!!! We are so proud of our little man’s room!!

  • Megan

    Do you have a link for where you purchased the unfinished cubes?

    Agreed! What a great idea!

  • Brandee gonsalves

  • Ysczabel

    Love that collection of signages or logos by the door.It gives a vintage touch to a modern-looking room. I also like those circle mirrors.

  • mely.madden

    Hi, I love your room and it gave me ideas for my son’s playroom. Where did you get the vintage signage?

  • The Unglamorous Mommy


    I got the signs from and the mirrors are candle holders that you put on tables. I fastened them to the wall using Command strips.

  • Marissa

    Where did you get the mirrors above the changing area?

  • rachel

    Are the photos from a photographer out of Hood River Oregon?

  • Samantha

  • Lindsey

    Your room looks awesome. I was wonder what website you found your storage shelves?

  • Amy

    I see that you posted this a while ago, but I would *love* to know the names of the paint colors that you used. They are exactly what I am looking for to use in my son’s room.

  • Jayme

    I have purchased the same fabric for your curtains as the bedding for my son from Target. I couldn’t find any curtains to match though and love yours. Did you find the bottom half at target? I coudn’t find them?

  • Beth P

  • Karen D

    I think this may be the question of the day about the storage cubes and bench. where oh where did you find them

    I love your whole nursery! Where did you find the lamp? I know you made the shade, the lamp is adorable and I am looking for something similar! :) Great job with everything!

  • Bree

    Karen is right, that IS the question of the day! I thought I saw a DIY on this photo for the cubbies but now cant find it! So please tell us, where did you get your cubbies? I want to be sure to get something sturdy enough:)

  • Nikki

    Very cute room! I did the same thing using bookshelves as a bench! As for the others wanting to know what kind, I used these Hope this helps!

  • Bree

    Thanks Nikki! Wondering if you are able to paint it since it’s particle board? (I’m thinking not) and are you able to use the middle as a bench–is it heavy duty enough? Thanks! :)

  • Jennifer Powers

  • Lori Wyatt

    And I think they already come in different colors :)

  • Tiffany

    Lowes also has the bookshelves. I have one that is unfinished, and looks like I should go back and buy 2 more now :)

  • Brady

    I found a place to get unfinished wooden storage that looks similar:,0

    Looks like it’ll cost about $304 to get the same configuration as they have in this nursery – 2 – 4-section cubes (2 x $90), 2 – 1-section cubes (2 x $27) and 1 – 3-section cube (1 x $70)

  • Autumn

    I love the room. You did an amazing job! I have been wanting to do a bookcase just like this. I feel like you created the room I have been planning and pictured in my mind. I was so excited to see your pictures. I know you said the fabric was from target and I’ve seen some of the bedding in this pattern but was wondering if you used a sheet for your fabric or how you did it….? Also wanted to know if you could share where you purchased the wooden cubes to create your bookcase. Again, I adore your work and would love to hear back soon. Thank you!

  • Diana

    Love the blue paint color- please post the brand/name of it…and great job!

  • Alena

    Love the idea for the bookcase/bench. Where did you purchase them from?

  • Jolenec

    FYI- it looks like she used bookcases instead of cubes. you can get them cheap at IKEA and just paint them and stack. just a suggestion. the seat cushion tutorial can be found on interest. you use plywood, foam and wrap fabric around and staple. i love the room- wish i had the space to make the book cases.

  • Ashley

    Where did you get the ABC sign?
