I cannot believe that baby Ollie is already here. I took these photos about a week or so back but with all of the activity around our house, I never shared them with you! I really had a certain look I wanted for his room in mind and I am so happy with the way everything turned out. I specifically wanted to incorporate travel and adventure aspects along with navy and mint into the color scheme.

Our first purchase for the nursery was the "Adventures Awaits" sign from Hobby Lobby. Pairing that with Oh Joy!'s crib bedding and a few extras from some of my baby showers, Ollie's nursery came together so simply! I cannot wait to highlight for you our amazing pegboard that Dusty built for the nursery. Inspired by Shanty2Chic, it turned out perfect.

One of my favorite pieces of the nursery is this Peter Pan quote by Ever N After, an Etsy shop that I stumbled upon during my pregnancy and fell in love. Each design is handmade and made to order. Brittany's wooden signs are beautiful hand lettered calligraphy on stained wood and she never uses any stencils! How talented!!

The quote "Little boys should never be sent to bed, they always wake up a day older" in Peter Pan allowed me to have a bit of Disney woven into Ollie's nursery without having a Disney-fied room. I sprinkled a few other Disney items throughout including a Oliver & Company Oliver plush toy, Disney Mouseketeer hat, and Mickey and Minnie, of course. However, Brittany's rustic wooden sign is by far my favorite. It is truly something that you cannot get from a store.

    Hi there! I was wondering if you had any plans for the pegboard above the changing table. I would love to make one for our little boy coming in May! Thanks!

    Thank you so much! Can I ask how you hung yours? Like what kind of hardware you used. Thanks again!

    Hey! Do you mind telling what kind of Crib and Dresser that is? I’m looking for something like that!

    Hi Heather! I absolutely love this pegboard. In fact, my husband and I built it this weekend for our baby’s nursery. I was wondering how you attached the letters to the pegboard?
    Thank you!

    How did you securely hang your letters that spell baby? I’m having a hard time figuring it out so that they lie flush against the bored and I don’t have to worry about them falling off. Thanks in advance!

    Hi Leah, Hali, and Sharma McDonald!

    The letters and arrows are attached with pegs from IKEA. I found that these pegs are a bit smaller than standard US pegs (for whatever reason) so they do not stretch the peg holes in the board at all! As for the arrows, I cut the pegs in half and hot glued them so they stay flush.

    Hi, I love the peg board you did, I know you used the shanty2chic plans and custom made the size to what you needed, may I ask what size is yours? I like the size you did and find their size just a bit awkward, thanks!

    Hey Megan! I believe it was close to a 4 ft by 3 ft size. We honestly measured out the dresser and made it a bit smaller width than that. We also just pencilled in on the wall the height and went from there. The lanterns actually came from the lawn and garden seasonal area from Target about two years ago; however, Pillowfort has some similar that they sell now. The arrows came from Hobby Lobby and was spray painted!
