Boy’s Striped Nursery

I realized the other day that I had never taken any pictures of The Littlest Apple’s nursery, and I wanted to document it since we’re about to make some big changes!  I actually added some items back in for these photos (the crib bumper, the changing pad) to show it originally looked.  Like most first time mommies, I agonized over every little thing for months and months before The Littlest Apple’s arrival, so I might as well share it with the world!

These next two photos obviously show some things we’ve added more recently, The Littlest Apple’s art wall (planning a more permanent solution for his big boy room):

and the train table which is gigantic and not getting played with very often…


Wall Colors: Main wall color is Benjamin Moore Faded Denim.  Stripes are Benjamin Moore Mystical Blue (the light color) and Blue Suede Shoes (the dark color).  Since the bedding was striped, we just used a few stripes in each corner (all different!) to prevent stripe overload.  My favorite stripes are the ones behind the chair.

Crib: Target.  Don’t be afraid to use white for boys!

Crib bedding: sheet and crib bumper, Pottery Barn Kids; navy crib skirt, BabiesRUs (would have liked a longer crib skirt!)

Rug: Pottery Barn Kids Ethan Rug

Chair: Pottery Barn Kids Dream Rocker with White Twill Slipcover.  I explored many cheaper options, but kept coming back to this one.  I got it for my birthday the summer The Littlest Apple was born, and I still absolutely LOVE it.  This chair has been used and abused for 3 years now, and still looks great.  So many memories!  I sat in this chair and pumped while The Littlest Apple was still in the NICU.  I nursed in this chair every 2 hours for months and months and MONTHS when the pediatrician was telling us that The Littlest Apple needed to gain weight.  We sat and rocked The Littlest Apple in this chair (and bounced around the room) for hours on end when he had colic.  And we sit in this chair before every nap and every bedtime to read stories.  I LOVE this chair, but unfortunately there won’t be room for it when The Littlest Apple gets his new bed.  BUT, it will have a new home in our master bedroom, and I can’t wait to use it there, too!

Blackout Roman Shade: Pottery Barn Kids (no longer available).  Keeps the room REALLY dark…but The Littlest Apple still gets up before 6.  sigh.

Wall Letters: Pottery Barn Kids Lowercase Letters

Bookshelf: actually an old bathroom shelf from Target, with feet broken off.  Time for a bigger and sturdier shelf!

Lamp: Target

Changing Table: Target

Changing Pad Cover: BabiesRUs

Diaper Caddy: Pottery Barn Kids Sabrina Diaper Caddy

Dinosaur Wall Art: Target

Train Table: Imaginarium from ToysRUs, a birthday gift from us for his 2nd birthday last year.

I’m sharing this post with The Lettered Cottage Nursery Linky Party.

  1. The nursery looks great! I love your idea of a wall art.

  2. I love the room! I really like how you painted the walls…so cute! Thanks for the cute comment on my blog, and good luck with your little tornado!

  3. Stephanie and Stacey- Thanks for stopping by and commenting. To comment on both of YOUR comments, I am a little concerned about whether my little tornado is going to destroy his wall of art! I want it to be the entire WALL, not just up high, but we may have to revist this plan….

    omg – my mom got my little boy a train set very similar to the one that you guys have and he uses it NON-STOP. on one hand it is annoying to play with a train track EVERYDAY, on the other, it keeps him entertained for hours… my sister, katie, i think talked to you about the chalkboard spray paint, but don’t know if she’s seen the pics. they are pretty awesome and i may have to steal it!

  5. I love this nursery! And, I think the art wall is really cool– even without permanent frames:-).

  6. Very nice nursery.. I was in search of such designs for my son and finally got it on your post.. I am glad I visited here and come to know about it.. I was wondering to know what is the total expense on making such nursery?

  7. I went to check out that post after I’d read these comments–Finn’s room is too perfect because he hadn’t arrived yet! But still, agreed. ;p

  8. Nice furniture.Its great.You have made really a great job by sharing this post with us.I like this & would like to read your more updates.Keep in touch with us in future too.
