Style Board: A Nursery Revamped

By Blissfully Ever After on Aug 31, 2012
The baby’s nursery has been a work in progress over the past year. I feel like I am so indecisive on his space because I haven’t found “the look” I was going for. The other day I decided to put together a style board to help put my ideas together and see it all together before purchasing items, making items, etc.

This is what I came up with….


What do you think? Does it scream little boy? J

#1  The crib is a dark finish with a masculine feel to it.

#2 A cubed storage solution will be used in the closet to store books and toys.

#3 I will be combining grey and orange colored fabrics along with the checked fabric that is in there currently to create a neutral pallet with a pop of color.

#4 DIY Galvanized letters for my son’s initials will go up on the gallery wall.

#5 A vintage car/truck theme is the foundation for the space.

#6 A galvanized bucket will be used for a unique way to store stuffed animals.

#7 DIY pendant light with a galvanized finished.

#8 Vintage license plates and signs = love

#9 Canvas storage bins offer clean, simplified organization. I will paint grey strips on them like the ones shown to flow with the rest of the space.

#10 And last but not least, the gallery wall. I feel this is the highlight of the room and adds the most character, details, and fun!

I have already started on some of the changes which included updates to his gallery wall, changing out of fabric styles, making pillows, DIY crib sheet, and DIY painted curtains. I hope to have everything completed by the end of this week and then I can MOVE ON to the other unfinished rooms in our home {all of them}. Haha!

I will keep you updated on the progress and provide tutorials on some of the items I am making.

Stay tuned!
