DIY Sailboat Nursery


A sailboat themed nursery for our first son complete with a compass so he will never loose his way.

Design Inspiration

My husband has been a sailor since he was a kid, so it seemed like a perfect fit.

Project Details

I used low fume interior paint from Sherwin-Williams.  It only took 1 coat and it is holding up beautifully!

I purchased laser-cut wood sailboats from Etsy and painted them myself.

I designed a compass with a local print house,

Favorite Items

My favorite item is the compass, but I love how the sailboats came out, too!


I looked and looked at pictures online (thanks, Pinterest!) and took little pieces from here and there to create my own design.
