Our little boy’s room is officially complete! All that is missing now is a BABY! When I started thinking about the baby’s nursery I pictured a room that was calming, serene, neutral, and functional. I’m no interior designer, but I’m really happy with how the nursery turned out! Below are photos detailing the room and I’ve categorized them by area. Having this room complete makes the arrival of our boy seem that much closer and I can’t wait!
One of my favorite things about this area is the ribbon garland. I found a how-to on Pinterest and it was insanely easy to make. I loved picking out the ribbons to coordinate with the room and I thought it was perfect thing to hang above the crib. I also absolutely love the rug. It makes the room look cozy.
The Rocking Chair
This rocking chair is so special because it was the chair that I was rocked in as a baby. It’s only flaw was that it desperately needed an update. It was scratched up like crazy, so my husband and I sanded it and painted it white to go with the nursery. I love how it turned out! We also decided to hang our diplomas in the baby’s room. Maybe it will inspire him to love learning like we did.

The Changing Area
I’ve had this IKEA shelving unit for years and I never thought I would one day be using it in my baby’s room as a changing area, but it’s perfect for a nursery! I added some white boxes to store all of the baby supplies and I love how organized it is right now (hopefully I can keep it that way after baby arrives). The dinosaurs I painted gold and sprinkled with glitter for decor/favors at my baby shower and I love that I could use them for nursery decor on this window ledge.
I found the idea to use these IKEA spice racks as shelves in a baby’s room on Pinterest, so I can’t take any credit for this hack, but I’m totally obsessed with it! I love that I can hang a few of my favorite onesies on the bottom one and it’s the perfect place to put family photos and books. Not to mention the adorable little alpaca that I cross-stitched myself (I’m pretty proud of it). The rose gold ‘baby’ balloon is left over from my baby shower, but I thought it would be cute on the wall until it loses air which I’m sure will be very soon. I’m planning on hanging photos of the baby in it’s place once he is here.
