I was inspired to make a nursery that incorporated dad's hunting hobby and our numerous family camping trips. I also wanted to complete the project on a modest budget, utilizing mostly hand-me-down furniture.
Arrows- they are everywhere! The term "glamping" also stuck with me and helped inspire me to create an outdoor theme fit for a princess, with girly elements and gold accents.
Eclectic, Vintage, DIY, Budget-Friendly

A special "thank-you" to our photographer Missy Timko of Powder Blue Photography for capturing our nursery so beautifully. The nursery, along with photos from both our Newborn shoot and Maternity shoot can be seen on her website (link above).
The mobile! It is made with an antler from a deer hunted by baby's grandfather. While I was hesitant to do this project at first, it came out wonderfully and uses something that would otherwise be neglected.
Do It Yourself! Your child's nursery is the perfect place to create a unique DIY project that showcases your love and creativity. I scoured Pinterest and Etsy for ideas like the mobile and painted antler decor. When my daughter grows up she'll be surprised to know what all Mommy made especially for her!
