Heath’s Nursery Room

So when my husband and I found out we were having a boy, we knew we wanted to make him an awesome room with old wood and deer horns but still keep it a little modern with clean lines and colors.

My husband really out did himself….


He wanted to make a little corner porch that the crib would sit on.  All the wood was taken off my great great grandparents house that is starting to fall apart.  We thought this would be a great way to repurpose the wood that has a lot of sentimental value to my family.  I did my part by making the fitted sheet and stuff bear, haha…

Paul also made the deer horn chandelier out of sheds that he has collected over the years.


He also made three large arrows to fill up the space between the porch and door.


In the reading nook, he made a very modern tree bookshelf that works awesome without using too much space.  He also made a cornice board out of the old wood for the window.  I cut out arrows and his initials out of vinyl and mod podged them to the cornice board.

For his changing table, we got the Hemnes chest of drawers from Ikea.  Paul made the changing pad box out of the old wood and I made the changing pad cover.  We painted a blue square on the wall above the changing table and cut out his name out of the old wood.

For the knobs, Paul cut little pieces of deer horns.


For the last wall, I recovered our Ikea futon and two pillows.  I also made my very first paper piecing wall hanging quilt that is a deer silhouette.  Last but not least, Paul made 6 picture frames out of the old wood to put Heath’s newborn pictures in.

We are so happy with the way it turned out and it proves that boys can have awesome things too.

Keep in touch!

    BRAVO! The triangular nook for your baby Heath in one corner of the nursery is so COOL!
    Using the old wood from your great, great grandfather’s house for paneling is fantastic as it highlights the royal blue crib in the center. So many other parts of the decor tie in with this like the 6 identical-sized wood picture frames for Heath’s ever-changing growth. Reveals all the LOVE from Mom and Dad for their new arrival. THANKS for sharing your photo shoot. Sarah in Minneapolis
