From the moment I found out I was pregnant, I was designing this baby’s nursery. I knew regardless of sex, I wanted a woodland theme.
Here was my inspiration:
So basically it would’ve incorporated that coral color if the baby turned out to be a girl…
But it turned out, we were having a boy for baby two.
I was very sick from weeks 10-39. I had awful morning sickness, SPD or symphysis pubis disorder where your pelvis basically feels like it’s shattering every time you walk or stand, plus gestational diabetes.
That being said, designing was about the extent of the work I could do. I was very fortunate to have one of my best friends and her awesome fiancé staying with us toward the end of the pregnancy.
All the gray walls were painted by my friends and my husband.
These birch tree wall decals from Amazon took them all day to install. For one, our old home has textured plaster walls. Also, these are not just peel and stick. You have to use a transfer paper and it comes with a limited amount. So don’t throw any of it away! You’ll need it again and again! However, I loved how they turned out and they are still sticking 3 months later despite the textured wall. If you do have a spot that wants to peel, just use an Elmer’s extreme glue stick.
The little owl lamp and shade came from Walmart. The custom signs came from Old South Design Co on Etsy, but maybe my favorite is the owl plush because it plays Hayden’s actual heartbeat.
This spot features two more signs from Old South Design Co (absolutely love the little man cave one!) and I made a spot for Annabelle’s rocking chair to sit near me so she can enjoy reading time. My mom brought the other tiny rocking chair for Hayden. He will be able to use it and rock with us before too soon.
I actually did most of the manual labor here 😂
I ordered this custom mobile off Etsy from Four Glittered Geese. The bedding is by Sweet Jojo Designs.
Finally, the changing table was a find by my dad when I was pregnant with Annabelle. He handcrafted the railing around the top and added it to the upcycled dresser.
My mom found those pictures of the bear and moose at a thrift store, but my fun find was the birch tree laundry bag, another Amazon find.
It’s not a perfect space…
But it’s come a long way from this boring space (for a “before photo tour of our home click here)…
…And Hayden sure seems to like all the contrasting colors and shapes!
