If you’ve been following me on Instagram stories, you know that last week I did a major DIY project—I removed the texture from the walls in Jack’s room—more on that another day. The good news is that it’s finally done, painted (we went with Benjamin Moore’s Seattle Gray) and put together and I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out!
It’s bright, colorful, sweet and cheery—everything I wanted in a nursery. His room went from looking the worst, to looking the most complete of any room in our house!
The centerpiece of his room is his adorable Wave Crib from Nestig, a brand new company with stunning, sustainable cribs. They have a no inventory model which means your crib is made-to-order and isn’t collecting dust in a warehouse somewhere. Love their low waste approach!
It’s also beautiful! It was very easy to put together and converts into a mini crib, standard crib and toddler bed, which is awesome. I won’t have to buy another bed for a long time.
I wanted his room to have color, hence the addition of this colorful rug. I came across this one and just fell in love with the whimsical pattern and colors and it’s even better in person. We got the 8×10 which fills the room nicely.
My designer friend said rugs should be 12-18 inches from the wall. This is a little closer, but the next size down was way too small, and she said it’s always better to go bigger than smaller. Smaller makes the room look small.
Onto the art! Have you guys checked out Juniper Print Shop? It’s sort of like a more curated version of Minted. The prices are unbeatable too. I found these cute Landmarks prints and loved the simplicity of them. The Dino print is also from them and I just thought it was fun and kid-like!
The white frames came in a set of two and were only $50! Frames can be so pricey, so I was thrilled with this. Especially since they were big and had mats.
For the bigger dinosaur print, I found this fun magnetic poster frame hanger that was SUPER easy to put together (and only $26)—literally you lay on edge of the art on one end and pop the other side to the top and it sticks together. It reminded me of a kid’s classroom and again, I just thought it was fun and informal.
The dresser in here is one we already had from Owen’s old nursery—it didn’t fit well in his new room. It’s old, but this one is similar and has a cute mid-century modern vibe to it that I totally love.
We still need some drapes in here for when Jack actually starts sleeping in here, but that’ll be an easy addition! I’m thinking these in the oatmeal color with a black or gold rod—can’t decide on the rod yet. I’m so so happy with how it all turned out and can’t wait for him to use this room in a few months, or whenever he decides to start sleeping through the night!
For now, we’ll use it for play time and naps—he seemed to adjust well yesterday! He’s such a little chunky cherub baby!
Thanks for following along the nursery project, I’ll be sharing more on how to remove the texture from walls soon, but for now, let’s just enjoy how smooth they are!
