Ethan’s Sailboat Nursery


Ethan's sailboat nursery was inspired by a trip my husband and I took while I was pregnant. We were walking along a dock looking at sailboats when the idea came to me to use this theme for Ethan's nursery.

Design Inspiration

I wanted to keep the nursery preppy which is why I chose the seersucker fabrics and the preppy sailboats design from Pottery Barn Kids. I am an avid reader and my husband does woodworking. We combined those two hobbies to create Ethan's book wall.

Project Details

Crib and Dresser: Munire, Majestic Collection

Preppy Boats Nursery Bedding: Pottery Barn Kids

Window Treatment: Custom-Made by Family Friend

The monogram above the crib was an easy DIY project. I simply covered a canvas in the seersucker fabric and hot-glued painted wooden letters onto it. I then put the canvas in an open frame and voila!

Mandy- I painted it onto the canvas by first printing the words from my computer, then tracing out the words into the canvas.

Diana- my husband built the bookshelves!
