A mature, neutral and clam baby boy nursery ready to grow with baby.

Design Inspiration

I wanted a neutral color range that would give me options in the future to make changes as baby boy grows.

Decorating Style

I strive for anything refurbished, antique, and second-hand. I love DIY- most of this nursery was.

Project Details

Crib: Jenny Lind inspired from Target. Has always been a favorite of mine.

Bedding: Crib skirt- it is actually a twin burlap bed skirt from I added pleats and sewed. The stitching can be removed and it can be used as a twin bed once baby boy is bigger. Bumper is from Serena & Lily. Sheets are from Target. 

Mantel: Second-hand, repainted by us. The center of the mantel is burlap covered foam and batting. This will be used as a focal point for the room now, and a headboard once baby is big enough for a twin bed.

Deer Mount: Donated by a family member. I painted it the same color as the rocker and the canvas signs above the window. White frame from Hobby Lobby.

Bookshelves: Hand-made by a family member. Painted in DIY chalk paint and distressed.

Curtains: Drop cloth purchased from Lowes.

Glider: Second-hand. Painted in same chalk paint as bookshelves.

Changing Table: Second-hand, repainted in chalk paint, top was sanded and stained. We added new hardware. This will be used as a dresser once he is out of diapers.

Mirror: Family heirloom

Coat Rack: Made out of a piece of old decking & 3 crystal door knobs from Hobby Lobby.

Framed artwork: Georgia crop map from Etsy. Frame at TJ Maxx

Favorite Items

I have many favorites in this room. The mantel is such a statement piece. The bookshelves are special since they were made by a family member. The changing table is beyond handsome.


A lot of the pieces are versatile. We didnt want to spend a ton when we would need to update it once baby boy was bigger. Go for what you love. Do not be scared to mix and match. Matchy matchy was NOT on the horizon for this room. Have fun!
