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.
