Luke’s Vintage Truck Nursery


When we found out that we were expecting a baby boy, my husband immediately said that he wanted the nursery to be truck themed.  Not being big on themed rooms, I told him we could do truck accents.  I love what we did and so does my husband - he's even told me that he wishes we could do our bedroom like this. ;)

Design Inspiration

We had these three truck pictures that were purchased at an art fair.  I knew that they had to be included.  Also, we found some replica tin oil and gas signs.  The main fabric print was found at Target.

Decorating Style

I think I'm traditional with some, slight modern touches.  I like spaces to look great, but also be functional.

Project Details

The crib, changing table, and chair were purchased from Pottery Barn Kids.  The side table was found online - it was an unfinished wooden table that we painted navy.  The bookcase was also found online as unfinished wooden cubes that we screwed together and painted.  The dot print fabric is from Target.

Favorite Items

I am most proud of the bookcase.  Orginially we were going to buy a bookcase like it from Land of Nod.  However, we decided to piece together our own instead.  I made the bench cushion and we painted it all to match the room.  We ended up saving about $750 by doing it ourselves!


Buy Frog Tape (painter's tape) and a quality laser level.  The paint job took forever, but is worth it in the end.  We had to re-tape about 10 times.  Also, bring along some patience and big bag of energy! ;)
