My Baby Boy's Nursery

Hi everyone!!

So, I have been waiting so long to be able to do the following:

1.  Get pregnant.
2.  Plan my baby's nursery.
3.  Blog about it for everyone to see! :)

So, today is a dream come true for me in a way! I have looked at so many other blogs of baby nurseries and have always dreamt that someday it would be my turn, and it finally is.

There is a good chance things will still change, I'm 33 weeks pregnant so that is 7 weeks left where my anal/picky self could change things and I probably will, but for now I am happy with it.

As I have mentioned, we ended up doing Safari theme.  Here's the tour.  This memo board is on the wall when you walk in:

Here is looking in from the front door:

Here is the wall to the right:

And the wall opposite of the crib:

That banner with his name was made by my sister-in-law for the shower, it was so beautiful I had to hang it in the nursery!

Here are some close-ups:

The closet:

I did everything on a serious budget.  For anyone who doesn't know, Wal-mart has amazing deals on baby furniture and not everything is crap there. That's where we got our crib.  That was the only thing I bought brand new for the nursery (besides decorations and closet stuff from Ikea.)  The rocker was gift from my mother-in-law and the changing table I found on Craigslist. It was normally $400 from Bergstrom's and I got it for $100, AND she delivered it to me in her truck! Bookshelves were from a garage sale (as seen in my last blog post) and the love seat used to be in our living room. :)

Let me know what you think!


  1. LOOOVE it! You did a great job Mama...he's gonna love it!

  2. Love it!!! Possibly the cutest baby room in the world!!

  3. Its absolutely stunning Stevie! It looks so well put together. My favorite are the wooden animals on the shelf.

  4. Yes! I love those, too! Where did you get them?

  5. Thank you ladies! I had so much fun with it. The wooden animals we found at TJ Maxx Home Goods! :) We're hoping their scary faces don't scare Cole, hehe!
