Decorating our first baby’s nursery has been something we have looked forward to for years! We are “Old Souls” and have always loved all things antique and rustic. Antiquing is one of our favorite hobbies and it has paid off! Our nursery is filled with items and decor that are meaningful to us and represent our personalities. Since we are expecting a baby boy (Rhett Easton Childs) we knew it would be easy for us to incorporate our passion for the outdoors and all things rustic. We can’t wait to be parents and for our little man to make his arrival at the end of May. Enjoy the tour of our baby boy’s room!
These blocks were found at a local antique store and the owl bank from ZGallerie.
We saw an idea online for a wooden accent wall and became obsessed with it. Brock built the wall and wooden shelf from scratch and it couldn’t have turned out better!
The floor lamp was purchased at Gander Mountain and the porcelain deer mount (A must have for Brock) was a gift from Stefanie’s sister + brother-in-law (it was originally purchased from ZGallerie and we mounted it to the wooden board that we found at Hobby Lobby).
More details that were antique store finds :)
We made this cute burlap banner (supplies from Hobby Lobby) however ran out of room in the nursery before it was hung. We are sure it will appear in several photos of our baby boy when he arrives!
This wooden shelf was found online at Pottery Barn.com.
The wooden childs chair is also an antique store find and Brock of course is excited for baby Rhett to wear the camo deer slippers :) The dresser is a family heirloom that has been passed down. It was “Distressed” by an artist at a local shop called Casual Elegance.
We replaced the dresser knobs with these unique knobs from Hobby Lobby.
We had custom bedding sewn by a fabulous seamstress named Bobbi, at a local shop called Casual Elegance.
Shelf decor: Ball mason jar given to us by my Grandma Betty (filled with random buttons), green distressed photo frame (waiting to be filled with a baby photo) from ZGallerie, and another must have for Brock was a shed antler he found while hiking.
Wooden rocking chair was a Craigs List find. The red/cream pillow was purchased at Target and the cream throw blanket was bought at Pier One Imports.
Our shabby chic crib was also found on Craigs list after browsing online for months. We knew we wanted a wrought iron crib but didn’t want to spend a fortune. We were lucky enough to find this crib that was hardly used. It was originally white however once we found out we were having a baby boy, Brock painted it light gray to make it more fitting for a boy’s nursery.
Brock’s amazing work on the custom accent wall he built from scratch!!!
This unique mirror is made from repurposed wood. Surprisingly enough it was found at Mejier and is part of the Katie Brown rustic collection.
Stefanie’s parents found this adorable little work bench at a local antique store. It is the perfect nursery accent!
The bag of antique blocks (which was a rare find that it still contained all the original blocks) and green rocking chair were both found at local antique stores.
This antique wagon is one of our favorite items in the nursery. It is an antique that we found a few years ago and had been using as a photo prop for clients.
Room Details: Curtain tie-backs were found at Hobby Lobby, the adorable knitter critter owl at Anthropologie and the cute green waste basket is an antique that was given to us by my Grandma Betty.
We are a bit obsessed with the burlap curtains with pom fringe we found on Etsy…Check out the Burlap Country site!
Shelf decor: Tin pale was purchased at Hobby Lobby, wooden pencils at Anthropologie and lantern was found at Gander Mountain.
We chose to remove the closet doors to expose the baby clothes and some additional details. The tiny clothes on the right were given to us by Stefanie’s sister. They will be Rhett’s first outfits while he is in the hospital :)
The gray/cream zig-zag printed rug was purchased online at Urban Outfitters.
The last image was taken by our dear friends Bobbi + Mike during our maternity session last week. View some of their favorites from our shoot on their blog! They perfectly captured our love for each other and this happy time in our lives!
