Ben’s Nursery

While I’m trying to get myself all revved up to work on baby girl’s nursery (is it just me or is it harder to get motivated when it is an arctic tundra outside???)  a friend sent me a few photos of her little boy’s adorable nursery, so I thought I would share! Plus I think baby boy’s rooms are hard to decorate for, and I loved her style! Her baby is due here in just a few weeks, and she has done such a great job decorating with a nautical theme!


I think this is the perfect example of a themed room.  It is cute and coordinating without being over the top!


Baby Ben is one lucky little guy!


I think my favorite part is the fabric pendant over his crib… what’s yours?

Thanks Sarah for sharing!!


Little Boy’s Blue Room

I shared Kaley’s precious yellow and gray nursery yesterday and while I was there I thought I would snap a few pictures of big brother Cooper’s room.  While I take 0 credit for Kaley’s room, I get to take about 1% credit of Cooper’s since I helped KT paint the stripes in here when Amy was pregnant (apparently paint fumes and pregnancy are not such a good mix).  We used a laser level to help with the stripes in this room, and it wasn’t nearly as hard as I thought it would be.  I love the way his nursery turned out!

It is transitioning a bit from a true nursery into a toddler room, so over the past year things have moved around a bit, but the stripes and the basic furniture in the room have stayed the same since he was a baby.  Ready to see it?


They’ve had a jungle animal theme going on in this room and you can see he has an awesome giraffe watching over him while he sleeps.

They are big Disney fans, so of course Mickey get’s the best seat in the room… Cooper’s super cute Pottery Barn Kids chair.


And in case you were worried that little sister was the only one with a GINORMOUS teddy bear… Coop has his very own.


The room is filled with fun sentimental things and inspiration for him to grow up happy and healthy as well, just like Kaley’s!


And don’t worry, Aunt Bethy put her incredible talents to use in here too.  She painted this for his room based off of the invitation to Amy’s baby shower for Coop.  How incredible is this?


And Coop wanted to show off all his fun stuffed animals… so I can’t leave this post without a shot of the superstar of this room!!


Yellow and Gray Nursery

This is one of those awesome projects that I take absolutely 0 credit for, except for my excellent choice in friends.  My BFF and I have been inseparable since the first day of high school (where I bounded up to her with entirely too much enthusiasm and just wouldn’t take no for an answer on being friends).  But we’ve been through a lot together and I imagine we still will since hopefully we have a lot of life left to live together!

She just had her first daughter and they did the nursery up right!! I just had to show you guys! Amy’s not a super girly girl, so pink and/or purple isn’t really her style, but they nailed this Yellow and Gray themed nursery.  I went over last week to snap a few pictures and I had the best tour guide (Cooper, the very proud older brother).  But enough chatting… let me show you the pictures!


KT (the dad) painted these chevron stripes himself.  How amazing is that accent wall?? There is an area with a high recessed ceiling where they chose to hang a crystal chandelier and I think it adds the perfect amount of girliness!


How do you like that dresser?  It is an IKEA hack, they spray adhesive-d  (yes I know that’s not a word, but its true) some yellow burlap onto the front of the dresser and framed it out with molding.  Perfection!

The room is filled with personalized touches and inspirational sayings.  I love this cute tree decal with the bookshelves. And both big brother and little sister have coordinating giant bears.  Its so cute how much Cooper loves his bear and I am sure Kaley will as well!


A closer look at some of the details, this is one of my favorite kid songs… and in case you can’t read the Cinderella artwork it says: ‘Love like there is no midnight’.


Miss Kaley will most definitely be surrounded by love and encouragement and I think this room is the perfect embodiment of that!! 


Her changing table is just a shorter version of the same IKEA dresser that they covered with burlap.  And her Aunt Beth who is CRAZY talented painted all the canvases in the room.  (She’s also the one who made the awesome cookie favors at my brother’s wedding shower)


Did you want a sneak peak of my awesome tour guide? He’s precious… and I’ll show you a quick peek at his room tomorrow (PS… its awesome too!)


And there you have it… a fabulous Gray and Yellow nursery!!


Big thanks to Amy and KT for letting me share Kaley’s nursery here on the blog!

Update: I shared Cooper’s awesome room here.
