Show Us Your Life: Nursery

This week at Kelly's Korner home tours the theme is nurseries! This is a re-post so I apologize to my regular readers. If you're here from Kelly's though, thanks for stopping by!
Here are some details about the nursery, including answers to questions I received in the comments or via email when I first posted pictures of his nursery.

Entryway of E's - this idea was inspired by Brittany from Perfect Harmony. She did a collection of H's on a shelf and I just loved the different sizes and shapes, and knew I wanted to do this somewhere in my house. The big E in the center is from JoAnn Fabrics and was only $2! It was plain cardboard and my mom mod podged paper on it. The horizontal striped E was a gift from my little sister, and I think is from Kirkland's. The rest of the E's came from Hobby Lobby, all during 50% off sales. I modge podged scrapbook paper on 3 of them (stripes, argyle, and polka dots), the white one was like that when I bought it, and the small blue one was black - I just painted it with craft paint.

Closet - The font I used for the labels in the closet is called Howser, and is a free download from Kevin & Amanda's Scrapbook Fonts. I cut the labels using my Cricut and a program called Sure Cuts A Lot. If you're a Cricut user, that program is a MUST-HAVE!! (More closet pictures & details, including the tutorial on the size dividers, can be found here.)

Alphabet Cards - My friend Ashley introduced me to these and I knew I had to have them the minute I saw them! They are by K & Company, and they used to be sold in stores at Michael's for around $7. I haven't seen them in stores in awhile, but you can order them online several places. I got mine on ebay from this seller and the total was around $10, including shipping. Then we just strung them on ribbon using miniature clothespins from Michael's. You also might remember the bookshelves from the tour of my old classroom. My mom re-finished these & stained them to match the rest of the furniture - I love how they turned out!

Airplane Mobile - The lanterns are battery operated and I actually randomly found them at Wal-Mart in the wedding decoration section. It was $10 for the set of 3. The airplanes are from Kirkland's. Patrick hung these using fishing line.
Wall - My mom & Patrick painted the stripes, and they are 6 inches thick. We just measured the wall & then determined how big we wanted the stripes from there. His name & the E are not painted on - they are vinyl and I cut them with my Cricut.


The picture on the far right is a nightlight I made. Here is a tutorial I did if you'd like to make one of your own.


Wall Decorations: The alphabet picture in the middle is Amy Coe but I got it at TJ Maxx for $7. The 3 little animals at the top were a Martha Stewart frame kit. I think I've seen them at Michael's, but I got mine at Big Lots for $2. The other frames were gifts. Further to the right is a growth chart that my friend Daysha gave to me - such a unique gift - I love it!



Well I think that is it! If I missed anything please let me know. Thanks again for all of the sweet comments! :)

  27. I love the nursery. It's so cozy and charming. Yep, that's how I would describe it...charming. It just makes you want to smile. And hello super organized closet. If our nursery had a larger closet I would so follow your lead, on the organizing. However, mine is so tiny with all the baskets there wouldn't be any room for the clothes.

  29. This is how I found your blog- through Kelly's Korner. When I saw your nursery, I knew I wanted to be your blog-friend! ;) Haha. I LOVE IT! It's great. You are definitely a talented decorator. Thank you for your sweet comments on my blog. I truly appreciate them. Manny is adorable and such a precious blessing. God bless you!

  30. I had to smile at this too, because I got a VARY similar {just red} alphabet art piece from T.J. Maxx for $7 for our son's nursery too! His hangs above his bookshelf, but I searched and searched for alphabet flashcards. I saw yours at Land of Nod, but I decided to wait to see how he grows into the space. Now, I'm anxious to actually get some up....
