Winslow's Nursery!

Y'all! I am ready to have a baby! His nursery is FINISHED! I can't wait to share photos, and I will do my best to make a source list as well in case you are interested in where I got something.  If you have any questions, just leave a comment and I'll do my best to reply soon!

I love the way his nursery turned out.  If you want to go back and look at my inspiration gallery, go here.  I'd say it stayed on target pretty close!  I am loving that most of the things in the nursery we did ourselves too. I love a good DIY project!


Our Little Boy's Nursery

 I bought the changing table/dresser from a thrift store in Raleigh for $20 y'all.  TWENTY dollars!  It was pretty beat up so I did a good sanding, primed, and painted it red.  Then I distressed it and added burlap knobs from Hobby Lobby.  I love the end result and it was the perfect antique piece that I was looking for.

 This might be my favorite part of this room: the reading nook.  Hubby built the window seat, my mom and I made the cushion with leftover quilt pieces from his bedding and canvas drop cloth, and I painted the window seat white. It also opens up for a toy box too! 
 The little fox is from my stepsister and stepmom and it came with a cute little book.

 My mom made the curtain and I painted brown stripes on the bottom. 
 Chevron rug from World Market for $60!

 The book ledges are just 1X2's that I nailed together with finishing nails.  Super super easy.  Then I stained it and hung it on the wall with little L brackets from Lowe's. 
 His crib is from Craigslist (originally from a really nice furniture store for over $900!) We bought it on Craigslist for $150.   His bedding I made from an old quilt I purchased on eBay. I bought the bumper pads for 50% off at Hobby Lobby, and then once I made the bumpers, they just fit in like a sleeve.  The chevron crib sheet is from Target. The little sock monkey blanket is from my mom but she got it at TJ Maxx.
 It was hard to get a photo of his mobile, but I made it from felt and stuffed the inside with pillow stuffing.  This is the first project I made for his nursery. :)  I love it. 

This piece of furniture, my husband made and I stained it a dark walnut.  The baskets are from Target and the vintage egg basket is from an antique store in Raleigh.  The lamp is a thrift store find that I spray painted orange.  My mother-in-law made the diaper cake for my baby shower. 

 There was a fan in here, but it was really rickety and only would work on high so we took it down and made our own light fixture- a chicken wire basket from HomeGoods that I removed the canvas inside and we bought a pendant kit from Lowe's for $20 and installed it.  I love the vintage look it gives the room.
