Finn’s Nursery

Despite the fact that Finn has yet to sleep a single wink in his nursery, it’s one of my favorite spaces in our entire house.

When we found out we were having a boy, it didn’t take long for me to start daydreaming about decorating a boy’s nursery. Since Aven’s room is so girly and whimsical (post coming soon), I was looking forward to going in a totally different direction.

Brandon and I knew we wanted a feature wall where the crib was, so that was our starting point. And then after seeing this amazing nursery on Pinterest, we decided on a rustic woodsy theme, using mostly neutral colors. (I purposely steered clear from elements that make the room look too baby-ish so we can keep most of it for a big boy room later on down the road.)

I am SO happy with how it turned out! And props to my husband for building that awesome wall.

Just like every other room in my house, it’s still a work in progress. The dresser is beat up but it has a lot of sentimental value, as it belonged to Brandon’s step-mom Joy, who we lost just over a year ago. I plan to paint it at some point. I’m also on the lookout for the right lamp to put next to the glider, as well as a way to incorporate Finn’s name somewhere in the room. Oh, and we still need to raise the crib mattress back up from when Aven used it! #oops

    Hi! I love your nursery, especially your crib. Can you tell me which one at Babies R Us it is? I can’t seem to track it down. Thank you!

      Hey Lindsay! Thanks so much. That crib was originally my daughter’s, so it’s about 4 years old now. I think Babies R Us may have discontinued it! I did a quick search and this one is the most similar, although ours is a true white and I can’t tell if this one is or not: https://www.toysrus.com/product?productId=118930226
      Thanks for reading!
