ChangingTableDetail_rounded_cornersGrayson is now two months old and I just finished hanging the last pieces of art in his nursery. It is finally ready to show you all. I thought that I was going to have everything ready before we had our little man, but then he arrived four weeks early and my progress came to a grinding halt. I’m excited that it is finished now; I was starting to think Grayson would be entering kindergarten before I got his footprints on the wall.
ChangingTable_rounded_cornersThe changing station is one of my favorite parts of the nursery. The dresser was a craigslist find. You can see its transformation here. After attaching a changing pad and adorable changing pad cover from Ivie Baby it was complete. We have decided to rock the cloth diapers, so the glass jar you see contains wipe solution (because cloth wipes really are easier if you are already doing cloth diapers) and we keep Motherlove diaper cream within reach. Alphabet art has a found a soft spot in my heart and I can’t get enough of the “Love You” nightlight.

NurseryTour NightLightWhen you walk through the door the first thing you see is the crib on the far wall.  The crib is a special item in the room because the grandparents united forces to get it and an organic mattress for baby Grayson. It is sweet that the place where he rests is such a love filled gift.

Art Wall & CribAbove it are two art pieces I snagged and Grayson’s footprints. When you get your baby’s footprints from the hospital they are each on their own little piece of paper. I scanned them and used Illustrator to format them and alter the color. Then printed and framed. I got a screamin’ deal on the frames from Aaron Brother’s. Buy one get one free. Amazing.

NurseryTour_RoomViewI love our rocker. It is a chair that for many years lived in my dad’s office. I would occasionally catch him napping in it at the end of a long day. It is cozy, and tufted, and green velvet. Could you ask for more? The pouf makes the perfect foot rest, adds a pop of color to the room, and is a seat for my hubby who often plays yahtzee with me while Grayson nurses. The two dip dyed teak side tables were my splurge. I saw them in this nursery and couldn’t help but swoop them up. They are also so handy for all the things I end up working on or snacking on while taking care of our little man. NurseryTour_ChairCornerCozy Corner Resources:

NurseryTour_BookshelfA big book shelf is a necessity. Gotta have a spot that accommodates our family’s love of books and storage in general. Nothing beats IKEA’s cube shelf for the price. I like the clean lines and styling each square. It was fun to get out the adorable toys Grayson has already been given and find them homes in his nursery. I can’t get enough of the pirate in his boat. On top of the shelf there is an art print I designed and screen printed and a picture of Grayson still in my belly. The train is mine from when I was a wee one.

The nursery is so perfect! I love all the little details and the eclectic collection of artwork. I would expect nothing short of fabulous from a darling designer :)

What’s the wall color? Great minds must think alike because I am also planning a mint green nursery!
Miss you so much!

Yeah they do :) It is called Jack Frost. I can’t remember the brand, but I got it at Lowe’s. It is a little bluer in some light, almost an aqua. I

I love everything about it! It’s so fun and sweet, and the colors are perfect. I have that exact chair in turquoise, inherited from my grandmother who passed away when my daughter was 3 months old. Mine didn’t really go with her nursery decor, but it was otherwise perfect because it’s small, comfortable, and I often thought of my sweet grandma while rocking my baby. K.

Thank you so much! The chair sounds amazing! I love pieces like that, that aren’t only beautiful, but hold special memories.
