Baby Boy Nursery Completed!

Feb 28th, 2011

Decorating my baby boy nursery has been a lot of fun! In fact, it was hard to nail down which ideas I wanted to use since decorating a nursery is one of those rare delectable treats (in my opinion!). Decorating kids’ rooms and nurseries are my very FAVORITE (if you can’t tell!). Those that have been keeping up with the process won’t be surprised at the elements I finally chose, but I haven’t posted a picture of the room put together yet.

So, without further adieu…here is my baby boy nursery!

  It was such an exciting process! I loved every minute of it.

I still haven’t finalized the bedding situation yet, but the baby will be sleeping on our room for a few months, so I have a little while.

I have to also thank all of you for your comments and encouragement about my fussy baby. He has shown a slight improvement on the acid reflux medicine. I am definitely hoping that things continue to get better. Having a sad baby is very hard. Yesterday was a good day. Last night was rough.

Just do me a favor and disregard my typos for the next 6 months, will ya!? I’ll blame it on my fuzzy, getting no sleep brain.

I hope you like his room! :)

Your little boy's nursery is adorable — those owls are To. Die. For. Seriously. And I LOVE how big you made his name letters. Super cute.

  24. Brooke @ says:

    Your comment confused me…but then I remembered that my sister posted my owl project for me after I had my baby. Lol. I made them myself but my sister is one of the most creative people I know. :)

  25. Rebecca@This Present Life says:

    The room is beautiful! I agree that decorating your baby's nursery is so much fun! Yours turned out so adorable. I love the color on the walls, the owls, his name…everything!

    I hope you all find some relief (and get some sleep) soon!

  26. Brooke~ I so would not have come up with this, but I *love* it. The colors, the crib, the clean lines.
    Hang in there…I hope the medicine helps out. Hugs to you~

  27. Love, Love, LOVE it. Great Job…good luck with Baby Creed!!

  28. I love your site! You do so many amazing things and have great ideas! My mom has started her own site and has an etsy shop. I am trying to get the word out for her. Her site is If you like what you see would you please spread the word. She loves your site as well. Thanks again!

  29. I love it!!

  30. I love the way Creed's nursery turned out!

    I have 4 children. 3 boys and 1 girl. My boys all had an allergy/intolerance to dairy and soy. I tried acid reflux meds and cutting out all dairy and soy which left me eating chicken and rice with a little salt and olive oil most days. This didn't help and I reluctantly (with many tears) gave up nursing them and switched them to Alimentum formula. My youngest had to be put on a prescription formula Neocate. I finally had my sweet baby boys back. They grew out of their intolerances at about 1 year to 1 1/2 years of age. Good luck!

  31. Try taking him to a chiropractor…a pediatric chiropractor. It helps with colic, among other things. It worked for my babies with ear infections even. And WAY CUTE nursery too!!

  32. Really fantastic! I love the color of the walls with the black crib!!

  33. Just catching the end part here, but LOVE, LOVE the padded headboard in the crib..have never seen that before. The room color looks amazing, too, congrats! And, the fussiness gets better!

  34. I love it! The owls in the window frames are amazing. I must get going on my nursery design asap.

  35. I love the windows! And the wall color is great!! Very cute!!

  36. Heather says:

    I love this! What a great idea with the padded headboard crib, genius! I love love owls! So cute!

  37. The color is gorgeous, it just looks different then the color on the chip. This color looks more teal. Which I really love.

  38. I love it! I have been eyeing off owls as well, very cute

  39. My (Mobile) Home Life says:

    Ok, you KNOW you have to tell us the color in this room!

  40. I'm so in love! What a gorgeous and clean look! Job well done =D

    hope you are sleeping better!
