Honestly this was one of the hardest projects I've ever done, and for the most part I'm absolutely loving it. My husband played a very big part in the theme for this room, we spent a lot of time together DIY-ing everything and a lot of bantering back and forth about what should go in the nursery and what shouldn't... aka I had to draw the line at a real deer mount and a few others lol ... I wanted this room to be soft and still feel like a nursery. Trying to keep it from looking like a trophy room was well lets just say interesting haha. The first project we did was the hanging shelf and we actually based that project upon doing a navy and orange color scheme keeping the colors warm... and I just couldn't get my husband on board with the orange... and the navy actually just made the room way too dark. This space is TINY and has a very small window, so the lighting is terrible and after seeing the warm colors it was clear that we needed to go softer... SO if I could... aka If I had the energy... and hope to down the road... I would distress and white wash the hanging shelf to give it a softer "feel" as it's a little too dark for my liking but it'll do for now!

We really saved a ton by DIYing just about everything with the exception of the crib, chair and side table. I hope to find the time and energy to share our DIY's on my blog but we'll see how the next few weeks before baby play out.


Due to individuals using my design and re selling it as their own I will no longer be sharing the measurements for the barn wood back drop. I'm sorry if this has caused an inconvenience but it was not intended to be shared for those purposes

    Oh my goodness! Im so sorry to leave you ladies hanging! It didn’t send me any type of notification for y’alls comments!

    Ashlyn: I sent you an email with the diagram if anyone else would like measurements contact me via my blog and i’ll send it over… hoping to have time now that we are out of the newborn days to post a DIY

    Audrey: We made a cross brace on the back to stabilize the unit together, and we used the appropriate wire for hanging artwork for it’s weight with eye hooks that safely threaded into the back of the brace. Then we set a 50 lb dry wall anchor into the wall. My husband used a heavy duty construction screw so that the unit could hang like any other art work from it. The initials are hollow and super light weigh we just used good size nails for the letters. Each letter had multiple eye loops welded into them already so it stabilized and secured it. Good Luck!

    Lindsey, Lauren and Cat: The pouf is threshold it was purchased back in January I believe. Hope you ladies are able to find it!

    Candace: The barn wood is a combination of layers of stain, white wash, stain all while using steel wool for sanding. The two stains were

    Lauren: The paint color is Valspar and it’s called Atlantic Schooner #4004-6C It also has different washes over it

    Again ladies, I’m so sorry I haven’t gotten back to you sooner, hope all of this helps. I’ll keep a better eye out for comments now! Happy Decorating!!!

    Beautiful room, I’m sure it will grow with him. You may find you need to move the changing table when the baby is 6-9 months old. Babies are very curious and it will be difficulty to keep them from interacting with the board above the changing table. Also, if you every plan to use any ointments/lotions on your child’s skin, know that it will end up on the wall. Consider paint/wall choices that are highly washable. Babies investigate everything and are more flexible than we every give them credit for.

    I do my best to respond to emails and comments but as a mom of 2 under 2 and a business owner any email inquiries with this request will not be responded to. Again I’m sorry for any inconvenience, the situation is unfortunate and I’m super disappointed that this has happened. I will do my absolute best to respond to other emails.
