Nursery Reveal: Eli's Baby Boy Nursery

Pssssttt ... looking for all the details and sources? Check out this post. 

Alrighty guys, the time has finally come for me to show you all photos of the nursery. (Truth be told, I'm a bit nervous!) This has truly, truly been a labor of love for Mike and I and we're thrilled with how it turned out (We're pretty sure Eli loves it too). Every time I walk in I can't believe that we have such a special room in our house. It's been therapeutic for me to put this room together and has been a huge part of me getting excited for and falling in love with our little boy before he entered the world.

Today's post is going to basically be a massive photobomb - over the next couple of posts I'll try to go around the room and show you the details - and since it's pretty much one huge DIY project - I'll try to break each thing down for you all so you can see how we put it together.

To give you an idea where we started, below is a quick before picture. If you remember from the early days of the blog, this room was deemed the"library" - aka junk room. We really didn't touch it when we moved in, it just became a store house for anything we didn't have a place for:


But now, it has a much better use - the nursery!

  1. Gah! I have such talented friends. This is fantastic! Love the mix of colors, textures and patterns that don't seem to go together when you see them individually, but it comes together so well in the room. And so much better than a traditional powder blue room for a baby boy.

  6. Source for the light fixture? I love the tiny pom pom garland over the wall art. What a cozy space for you and your little one!

    1. Hi Michellesayshi - It's kind of complicated... the main fixture came with the house (an old flush-light mount) - we just removed the cover and added the shade from the Eden Pendant Lamp from CB2. You can find it here: http://www.cb2.com/eden-white-pendant-lamp/s616641?a=501&device=c&network=g&matchtype= Thanks!

  7. I would have loved doing something like this in my boys' nurseries a few years ago. What an inviting space! I'm curious if you have plaster walls. Our home was built in 1924 and looks very similar. I have problems attaching anything with much weight to our plaster walls. How did you attach the bookcases?

    1. Hi Rhonda - we do have plaster walls - they can be such a pain, right? I ran this question across my husband, and he said he used a plastic anchor with the screw, like this: http://www.homedepot.com/p/Unbranded-14-16-x-1-1-2-in-Green-Ribbed-Plastic-Anchor-with-Pan-Head-Combo-Drive-Screw-25-Pieces-00507/202187098#.Uo1dEWTXT5k We've also used something more heavy duty for items that need to hold a ton of weight (like the coat rack in our living room): http://www.homedepot.com/p/WingIts-World-s-Strongest-Fastener-Super-Duty-6-Anchors-RC-MAWSD35-6/202552914#.Uo1dqWTXT5k

  9. The whale pillow. THE WHALE PILLOW!! I must and I mean, MUST, have it. Please tell me it was an easy hack or something I could easily get from Canada. The entire room is adorable. That moose? So. Cute.

    1. Hi Melanie - I actually sewed the whale pillow myself! I just picked up all the fabric and pom trim at Joann's, then made a simple envelope pillow with the pom trim around the outside. For the actual whale, I drew a silhouette of a whale on a piece of fabric, cut it out, and used iron-on transfer to apply it. Then I just top-stitched around the edge of it to make it look "sewn" on! Hope this is enough info. Sorry I don't have more for you!
