Baby R’s Nursery


We wanted to create a nursery with pieces that were versatile and that we could use in the future. We focused on simple elements that would be easy to change out as he got older.

Design Inspiration

We started out with the Dwell Studio bedding and Jenny Lind crib and went from there. We have a mix of DIY, bargain shopping and watching sales at retail. Ultimately, we wanted everything in the room to be something that we loved. For inspiration we used Pinterest, Project Nursery and blogs we stumbled upon. I highly recommend seeing if you have a modern/unique fabric store in your area, it's a great place to be inspired.

Decorating Style

Classic with a twist of modern and cozy elements.

Project Details

Bird/Tree Branch Mobile - DIY

Bookshelf - DIY, from a recycled pallet

Pillow - DIY, by my husband

Clock - thrifted from Goodwill and then covered with scraps of fabric

Favorite Items

My husband made the bird/tree branch mobile. He spent a lot of time and effort creating this and I feel that it's a nice, personal touch in the nursery.


Buy only what you love. If you have to think twice, it's probably not meant to be. Also, putting together a nursery does not need to be expensive. Besides gifts, we spent a little over $1,000 for everything in the nursery (including most the furniture). Don't be afraid to try DIY projects, there are a lot of resources available that can help along the way. Also have fun with it... because this is a fun project you can do as a couple.

Where did you get the giraffe on the closet divider?

Hello! I believe it was JoAnn Fabric, if not you could always try Michaels. I bought I already painted. Good luck :)

Love the room but was wondering where you found the peddle car? I had a real one just like it when I was little and would love to have this for my grandsons nursery. Thank you for the wonderful ideas!

Yes it was from Hallmark :)

Hi there! The peddle car was a gift from my sister in law. I believe she said hallmark but let me check on the bottom to see the name brand. Stay tuned!

The round ABC bin on the floor next to the boookcase... Where did you get it? Also, how did you adhere the fabric scraps to the clock?


Monday 27th of May 2013

Hi- sure! We found the floor bin at a baby store but I found it online at the Land of Nod to give you the product name:

We adore it! So cute and the bin holds all of his stuffed animals.

We attached the fabric strips with fabric glue. Good luck :)

How is the Hemnes dresser working out as a changing table? We are thinking of using it too. Thanks!


Monday 27th of May 2013

It works out great, we love it! Plenty of room for all the clothes and we love the drawers at the top for all of the small stuff- bibs, burp cloths, socks,etc. I'd recommend getting a changing pad with a strap that can attach to the back so you're nice and secure :)

May I ask where you got those alphabet blocks? I love them!

Hi Cassie - absolutely, I got them from Dwell Studio. I found a link to them on Amazon:

Good luck :-)
