A Woodland Nursery For Our Baby Boy!


Woodland Nursery Before and After
Finally! The nursery is finished!!

Woodland Nursery
I am just in love with how this Woodland Nursery turned out for our little man!!

Woodland Nursery barn door and bunting
I added these lanterns from Home Goods and this bunting banner from Nurtured Soul Designs on Etsy!

Woodland Nursery lanterns
I used a plant hanger from Lowes to hang the lanterns.

Woodland Nursery crib

Woodland Nursery blankets
How adorable is this blanket with this little fox and raccoon, found at Babies R Us!? And the striped crochet blanket was made by my SIL!! You can check out her work via Yarn at Heart!

Woodland Nursery triangle shelves
My hubby made me these cute triangle shelves from some left over reclaimed wood!

Woodland Nursery DIY ceiling fan
This ceiling fan was part of the house when we moved in and I wasn't a fan of the brass, but once I started decorating the room and using brass accents (in the lamp and the hardware), I thought I might just leave it and paint the fan blades!

I painted them to match the dresser and I love the way it came out! Plus it saved me over $200!!!

Woodland Nursery crib bedding
For the crib bedding, I used a brown, tan, and orange plaid flannel. The fitted crib sheet is from Land of Nod. I decided to do a teething bumper instead of a full crib bumper since my first 2 boys chewed the front of the crib. I used a quilted brown fabric and made my own piping with the plaid fabric to tie it all together!

With my left over fabric, I made this cute little blanket too!

Woodland Nursery hospital door hanger
This adorable door hanger was made by a super talented friend of mine!! You can find her custom calligraphy work and more here! She made this for us to use at the hospital on our door, and now it hangs on the nursery door at home! I just LOVE everything about this!!

Woodland Nursery
I found this little end table at Home Goods. It has a rustic finish and I am always obsessed with any furniture that has this 'X' detail!!

Woodland Nursery metal moose
How cute is this little metal moose!? Found at At Home!

Woodland Nursery pinecone deer head
This is the deer head made of pine cones that my MIL gave me! It was part of her Christmas décor, and was then used at my baby shower for décor! Now it hangs in the nursery!!

Woodland Nursery rug
The rug is from Target and can I just say this is one of the softest rugs I have ever felt!! I was so surprised by the quality of this inexpensive rug. Perfect for little ones!!

Woodland Nursery field guide wall art
I wanted to make some unique wall décor for the nursery. I made this Field Guide in photoshop and printed it on brown cardstock. I bought this wood slice at Hobby Lobby and then glued the print to it! Added some jute rope and hung it on the wall!

In addition to the field guide, the burlap letter 'T' was a gift from my SIL, and the outdoor sign is from At Home.

Woodland Nursery be brave have courage explore
And last but not least, I really wanted some kind of quote in the room. When I came across this quote, I  knew it was the perfect one! First I thought I would order the quote from a decal company on Etsy, but then I decided to "be brave" myself and hand paint it on the wall. I know, crazy right?!
Well, I used the projector on a ladder and traced it with pencil first, then I used a burnt orange paint and a small paint brush to paint over it. I added the triangles in between to tie in with the other triangles in the room (the crib sheet and the shelves)!

Love what you see? Click on the links below for step by step details on how I put the nursery together!

  2. How adorable! Makes me **almost** wish I had a young one again!!


    1. Thank you Tania! Nurseries are so fun to design, but I might just have to rely on client's babies from now on instead of having more of my own lol!

  3. Oh my goodness this is the cutest nursery I've ever seen! Awesome job! Thanks for sharing on Work it Wednesday!

    1. You are so sweet! Thank you so much for the compliment!

    1. The wall paint is Universal Khaki by Sherwin Williams. It is a khaki with a very subtle green undertone. I love it!
