I’ve got a few more finishing touches to go on Baby P’s nursery, and most involve getting crafty. Just a few last finishing touches and we should be good to go!
1) Window treatments
Baby boy’s nursery walls are light gray, and there is one accent wall with thick gray and white stripes. For the window treatments (which will go against a gray wall), we are thinking white curtains (blackout on the reverse) with a single gray stripe to carry it through onto the wall without making it too matchy matchy. Thankfully, my MIL is helping us out and has a vision for this!
Working on a version of this adorable, custom mobile using gray, white, navy and red. So cute! (Source)
3) Nursery artwork
There are SO many darling designs out there to choose from, but they can be expensive! I am going to try to make my own, using some of these as inspiration:
4) DIY Growth Chart Ruler
I love the idea of tracking Baby P’s growth and seeing these bright fun numbers run up the wall! Lots of cool options on the color/design of it, too. And you better believe this is something T is all over…after all, he’s the DIY master! (Original source, option, option)
5) Letters for the pegboard
We loved the look of this tool/pegboard and have something similar in the nursery. Once we decide on a name, I want to get wooden letters in his initials to attach to the board for a pop of color! That said, this will be one of the last things to happen! (Source)
And in terms of other baby-related projects, I’ve been pinning a ton of newborn photo ideas…there will be tons of those around the house for sure!
Mommas- how have you decorated your nursery? Any cute Pinterest finds out there? Share in the comments- I want to hear about it!

I cannot WAIT to see your nursery!!!! You guys are the best at DIY and it’s going to be awesome!
Aww thanks so much Katie! I can’t wait to take the final “after” pictures- woo hoo!
I love all these ideas! The pegboard is awesome and will be such a great space saver too! Of course our nursery is totally different since it was for a girl, but we did the stripes on a wall and a decal on a wall. And we have since added a stuffed animal net in the corner to the ceiling to help with storage. They get so many stuffed animals so quickly!
It will be SO handy to have diapers, wipes, etc. off the changing table and easy to grab! What kind of decal did you go with and what color stripes? That sounds super cute!
Oh and I remember that animal net- I had one of those and LOVED it!
We went with a green color scheme with dark purple and a few pink accents so we did her room in a light green and then one accent wall with a little darker green stripes. We got a tree with purple flowers for another of her smaller walls. It turned out so cute! Children’s rooms are so fun to decorate!
Oh that sounds darling! Love it!!
