Lindsey and Justin Daniels wanted to start a family right after they tied the knot back in 2009 — they had stable jobs, good income and a lovely 4 bedroom home. After two years of struggling to conceive, baby Foster is finally here! Come take a tour of this lovely new baby boy’s nursery…
Child’s Name: Foster Everett
Child’s Age: 1 month
Location: Columbus, Ohio
What was your inspiration for the room?
I started out wanting to use giraffes for his room but just make them accents and then I decided to add in some alligators and elephants for their colors!
Describe your decorating style.
I like colors and homemade elements. I did quite a few DIY projects for his nursery. I am not a fan of dark wood so I wanted to work around white furniture.
My frame wall and pictures in it are probably my favorite decoration. I love the “best chair” that my parents got for us, it is SO comfortable.
Do what you like! Don’t think that you have to pick a bedding/room set from babies r’us (or any other store) and have everything “matchy-matchy” and most of all HAVE FUN!
Wainscoting: We actually put this up ourselves with the help of a friend’s father who is really good at home projects. We also painted it ourselves. We had our trim paint matched to paint this.
Walls: We painted the walls powder blue from Sherwin Williams.
Dresser: Hemnes 8 drawer dresser from Ikea
Bookcase: Hemnes Bookcase from Ikea
Crib: Graco Charleston from Target Find it HERE
Glider/Rocker: This is a “Best Chair” that my parents got for us for our nursery!
Giant Giraffe: This was a gift from my father-in-law and we love it! It’s a Melissa and Doug from a toy store in the mall here Find it HERE
Frame Wall (above dresser): I got the frames for this project from all different stores on clearance and repainted them with the extra trim paint from the wainscoting. I made the shadowbox (DIY project directions on my blog HERE ). Some of the other frames are filled with scrapbook papers that I liked and others were with printables from blogs that I had found. There is a DIY on my blog about making a frame wall HERE
Curtains: I made the curtains myself. I couldn’t find ones that I liked that were long enough for my large/tall windows and had darkening material behind them so I decided to make some. There are DIY instruction for making curtains on my blog as well, just click HERE . I also make the cornice board at the top of the curtains to match! Directions are HERE .
Bedding: Bedding set was “scallop pique” from Pottery Barn Kids but they no longer make this bedding set. The sheet is another sheet that they make because I did not care for the plain white sheet with it.
Shelf above crib: Made by my husband and father-in-law
Blocks on the shelf over the crib: Found on etsy!
Blocks on the bookcase: Made by me. I actually made these for maternity pictures and HERE are the directions to make them.
Small Green Table: Made by my husbands grandfather a long long time ago.
Blue Table with diaper cake on it: An antique store find from years ago!
Chandelier: Pottery Barn Kids Peyton Chandelier with green shades
