i’ve been SO excited to share with you nolan’s finished nursery. i absolutely love how it turned out and often find myself sitting in his room just because i love it so much. it’s hard to believe that he will be here in less than two weeks (hopefully..). i didn’t have a theme for the room and was open to tying in as many colors as possible. my main goal was to make as much as possible.
i picked out the fabric for the quilt first and then based everything else off of the colors and patterns from the fabric. i ordered most of the quilt fabric from fabric.com and etsy.com. my mom carried out all of the sewing duties and it’s easily my favorite part of the room.
she also made a coordinating pillow with the scraps. aren’t moms the greatest?!?
i found this little guy at target and decided to spice up the lamp shade and even made him a matching collar. i decided to name him “watt” and every time i look at him i crack up. i hope nolan loves dogs as much as i do!
this train set was given to us by our family (thanks mike and katie!) and it’s bailey’s favorite part of the room. she initially tried to eat them, however now she just goes up to them and sniffs. i wanted something in nolan’s room that had his name on it, without it permanently on the wall.
i ordered these wood frames online from cut it out and found acrylic paint that matched the quilt. b painted all of them and we debated whether or not to put pictures and prints in them- but decided against it for now. the clock is from target.
see that mobile in the window? i have a few changes i want to make to it and then i’ll share, i promise. (remind me if i forget, i think i’ll be busy the next few months).
the changing pad cover was made by… ME and i was/am so proud of myself for it. love how it coordinates with the room i have a few other fabrics waiting to be made into covers as well.
i also made the bunting with some of the left over fabric from the quilt and some bias tape.
i also used some of the left over fabric to make some additional wall decor. super easy and love how it turned out. all you need is some embroidery hoops and coordinating fabrics. i used fabric paper to make the hoop with bailey, b and i, and the one one the top right is an article about my grandfather. the two mirrors are from hobby lobby.
i plan on continuing to add things as i learn more about his personality. i wonder if he will like bright colors like his mom or more neutral colors like his dad? we shall see!
