Baby E's Completed Nursery

Without further ado, the completed nursery photos! Just to keep you up to date, here's been the progression:

-Before
-Sneak peeks
-Sewing projects
-Project details

We are super happy with how it turned out. I think it's the perfect gender neutral nursery for the little guy. There is plenty of leeway to change and adjust things as he grows and develops his specific interests.

This will be a photo heavy post (the best kind really).  I will also try and list where I sourced certain items.


Here are some before and after shots...






Luke did a great job building the custom closet on the left side of the nook.  It leaves some space on the right side for a little reading area for when he gets older.  I have grand plans of making a little teepee tent for that side.

The wall color is Metropolitan by Benjamin Moore.

Whew.  Thanks for following along this decorating journey with us.  It's been fun to do all of these projects together for our little guy.  Who wants to make a bet that the next kid's nursery doesn't look this good??  Haha.  I sure I hope I can find the time to do all of this again - I had SO much fun with it.  I guess time will tell.

Up next: Birthing this baby!

  4. Wondering if I can feature as a before & after on Apartment Therapy? Sorry I didn't see an email address for you. Email me at alovelylark@gmail.com if you're interested. Thanks!

  5. What a lucky baby!!!! I've never seen such a beautiful room. You and your husband should be very proud of yourselves.

  6. Stopped over from AT - this is a great room! We are due with our first in June and don't know the gender, I could see this easily working with boy or girl. Can you share where you found the fabric for your DIY sewing projects? Perhaps you mentioned it on another post, but I love the color combos.
    Our nursery is currently in the "repair-the-plaster" stage...LOTS more to go. :)

  9. Looks AWESOME! And you had a reasonable budget, too! Not all of us can spend $20,000 on a nursery so I'm thrilled to see lots of Target and IKEA on your list!

    1. Thanks so much. That was one of my biggest goals - to be creative and not spend a fortune. Proof it can be done :)

  12. I saw this on Pinterest and am in love with everything! Especially love the pop of red from the side table and the Spoonflower fabric you used.

    How did you go about hanging the plate above the crib?

    1. Thanks! I actually just super glued a safety pin to the back (it's a melamine plate) and then hung it on a nail!

  13. This is so fun!! I love it all but my favorite is the wall above the crib. Where did you find all those adorabel prints in the frames?

    1. Thanks! Various places, the Portland map is from a vendor at the Portland Bazaar, some from etsy vendors as well :)

  14. This is so completely darling! We're building a nursery now and it's a blank slate for our June baby. Thanks for the lovely inspiration!

  15. Hi Brooke! I'm also chiming in because I'd love to feature your nursery on The Sweetest Occasion in our new Nook column. Once you're all settled in with baby maybe we can chat? I'm more than happy to coordinate with Lauren as to not overlap with a potential Apartment Therapy feature.

    Hope you're all doing well! xoxo

  17. Hi Brooke!!! I have a dark basement w knotty pine and was curious how you prepped the wood before painting. Did you sand it down? What about the grooves? Congrats on the adorable nursery and more adorable soon to be son!!

    1. We washed it down (you can use TSP) then did a light sand followed by three coats of primer (use oil based with a good stain blocker) then did two coats of paint.

  18. Small room, big personality. The pop of red from the small side table was a nice touch as well as the other small colored items you put around the room. I love the space-saving idea of having the dresser function as a changing table too. You guys did a great job on this nursery. I love it!

    1. Thanks Allie! I'm finding it helps having a cute room, especially when you spend so much time in it. It makes me happy to look around at all of the cute stuff :)

  21. I love the nursery, it's beautiful! Do you remember the name of the larger print in the picture gallery or where you purchased it? Thanks!

    1. I am going to have to pull the print out of the frame and see who the heck makes it (baby is sleeping in there now - shhhhhh!). I got it at the Portland Bazaar about 2 years ago - before I was even preggars. I will update once I get the deets :)

    2. Thanks so much:) Was just visiting Portland last week, you guys live in an amazing city!

  22. I'm expecting a baby boy in September and, out of the hundreds of nursery photos I've looked at, yours is easily the most adorable and creative. I'm from Portland but live in LA and would love to introduce some NW elements into my nursery. Can you tell me where you got the Portland print on the gallery wall above your crib? I would greatly appreciate it!(I believe this might be the same print that the commenter above is referring to.)

    1. Thank you Danielle - that's so sweet. Congrats and good luck with your baby boy! I am going to have to pull the print out of the frame amd see who the heck makes it (baby is sleeping in there now - shhhhhh!). I think yours is the second or third request. I got it at the Portland Bazaar about 2 years ago - before I was even preggars. I will update once I get the deets :)

  23. This is so cute, so funny because the nursery i have pictured in my mind has some of these elements in it. Too cute, I'd love to know the etsy that the moose head is from. I like that it's not too big or too small.

  24. Love this nursery. I am using it as inspiration for my baby boy nursery. Are you happy with your rug? I know you said it was from Rugs USA. Is it the slate trellis? Would love to know before I purchase it. :)

    ReplyDelete
  25. Oops. Just saw where you said it was the slate/blue. Does it make the walls look bluish? Doesn't look like it from the pictures.

    ReplyDelete

    1. Hi Michelle! I'm flattered - thank you! I am VERY happy with this rug. I would highly recommend it. In my opinion it does not make the walls look bluish. The wall color reads exactly like the photos in person.

  26. Love. Love. Love your nursery! I was looking around Google for a loose fox/woodland themed nursery, but nothing in our color scheme came up...until I found yours!! Thank you for the inspiration. It's going to make our little man's nursery amazing :)

  27. Where did you find the rocker/swivel base? I've only seen them online for $75+ and I'm just not willing to fork out that much.
    I love the nursery!! It's so cute and fresh and bright =]

    1. Hi Emily!
      We got this one:http://www.perfectfit.com/15349/159869/Springs-Edgewire--Clips/Rocker-Swivel-Base-With-Legs.html
      They had a location is Portland, so we picked it up and saved on shipping.
      Good luck!

  28. I absolutely love your nursery! Do you have a link to the fabric that you made the cornice boxes out of?
