Nursery Tour!

I know you've all been losing sleep over this.

I have.

Just kidding. I've been losing sleep because I think that's what you are supposed to do when you are about to have a baby. I just wanted to fit in! Anyway... Here is the nursery! I love how it turned out. I'll try to tell you where everything came from as we go:

Banner: My BFF Ashleigh. (Who really needs to blog her nursery soon!)
Letters: Most of them are thrifted, some are from craft stores.
"You are Loved" wall hanging:  Hobby Lobby
Quilt: My mom made it. I love it.

Rocking chair: Thrifted. {PS it's really uncomfortable so I'm not going to use this one. But it's cute, right?!}
Rolling cart: Thrifted. I love it. It was $3. It's my favorite. Of course it was an eyesore, but yay for spray paint!
Bookshelves: Ikea spice racks.

 I literally don't think I could be happier with how the stripes turned out. My husband is the BEST!

 Dresser/Changing station: Thrifted and painted. 
Picture frames: Thrifted and painted.
Big safety pin: Hobby Lobby (Also Ashleigh had this idea first. But our babies are going to be BFF too so it's okay.)

 My grandma made the quilt that's on the chair. I love it.
Chair pad: World Market
Lamp: Thrifted (It's from Pier One though)

 Little safety pin: Hobby Lobby
Truck: Okay, cutest thing... My DAD made this when he was a little boy! My Grandma saved it all these years. After she passed away I got it. Love it.
Stork: A gift from some of our Special Needs kids.
Printables came from here, here, here, and here. The internet and cool people are a beautiful (and frugal!) thing!
"Shhhh" sign: Thrifted. (It says "the prince is sleeping" on the little round part.)

We also added this little guy because Josh's dad (who passed away February, 2013) always told him to "do right" and we want to pass it along to our kids. 

 Thank you to my awesome husband for hanging all.the.letters. He is so patient when I'm wanting to put more holes in our walls.

This was Josh's idea as well. He loves MMA. A lot. And so will our baby. He is already pretty good at throwing punches. :) Anyways, I came home one day from work and said "OH I SAW THE CUTEST THING ON PINTEREST FOR THE MOBILE!!! We have to do it! It's clouds and fluff and blah blah blah..."

And he said "He needs a punching bag." So we went with that. It's awesome and unique! If you aren't my Instagram pal.... well... you should be first of all. And secondly, you can watch this little baby in action here

I think that's it! I don't think we are ever going to feel "ready" to have this little man. But having a nursery that is complete sure does help! :)


  1. SUPER SUPER DUPER CUTE!!! I love the sayings... not that he can read yet, but it puts the energy in the room of love and hope and goodness.

  2. It's adorable! Looks like something right off Pinterest!

  3. I love it. It's the cutest ever! :) just like he will be!

  4. I love that you have books to read him. That is one of Pipers favorite things to do and it's super cute when she picks one up and goes " blah blah blah yah yah yah da da blah." pretending to know how to read.

  5. I love that you have books to read to him. Reading is one of Pipers favorite things to do and it's super cute to see her pick up a book and say "blah blah blah yah yah dad da yah blah." as she pretends to read.
