It was so fun to plan Vera’s woodland nursery. Here is my moodboard that inspired the end result. I wanted to go for a baby girl woodland nursery that wasn’t too girly (but I just had to paint the walls a fabulous blush pink/coral 🙂
And here are photos of the nursery, we are so happy with how it turned out. Here are some details:
Branch Mobile – I DIY-ed this by finding a branch in our backyard and hanging strips of fabric leftover from the quilt along with gold ikea ornaments. (I also added that cute little bird on the top of the brand, held in place with jewelry wire 🙂 We hung it from the ceiling with fishing line and tacks so it has a great “floating effect” above the crib.
Gallery Wall & Deer Head – I knew I wanted to do a gallery wall above the changing table/dresser. My mother-in-law did an amazing job by making the faux taxidermy deer head from this tutorial! Other elements on the gallery wall were mostly from my basement. I framed three photos of Matt and I, one of our engagement, one from our wedding, and one of us with the ultrasound of baby 🙂
You Are Our Greatest Adventure Sign – Inspired by the Etsy listing, Matt & I DIY-ed this sign by using strips of pine wood with danish oil (it is the same wood and oil used as the closet – more details on that here). Then, I cut out the saying “You Are Our Greatest Adventure” on white cardstock paper using the Silhouette machine and used spray glue to adhere it to the wood.
Upholstered Rocking Chair – Don’t you just love that chair?! I searched long and hard for an upholstered rocking chair that wasn’t uber expensive. P.s. It’s from TARGET! Check it out here, I took a leap of faith and ordered it without being able to sit on it to try it out (it is an online only product, but I’m pretty sure we COULD have returned it to the store if we didn’t like it, but luckily – we love it!)
Gold Foil Tree Decals on Gallery Wall – I used the Silhouette machine to cut out simple triangle shaped trees on gold contact paper. The best part is that the contact paper is already sticky on one side, so I simply “stuck” them on the wall in a grid pattern! I love that these have a geometric aspect to them so they can be trees or more like arrows, either of which goes great with the woodland theme. I think it really added to the feature wall.
