Welp now that Liam is almost 8 months old, I thought it was about time to share this space with you. If you follow along, you may remember us working on this space. It used to be a feminine vintage guest bedroom, then it was a big mess and finally we started turning into a little boy’s nursery with a wood feature wall. I knew I wanted a wood wall with a slight twist because we did one in Jack’s nursery too. And then I saw this in the pottery barn catalog and it became our jumping off point. I knew I wanted the nursery to have a similar rustic style as Jack’s but feel a little more modern. I also wanted it to have some of the same elements as Jack’s room in case I ever wanted to combine their rooms so I chose the animal busts, animal prints, metal monogram, and another handmade quilt made by my mom.
Sometimes it just takes awhile to get all the final touches. I went around and around about what to do for window coverings because what I really wanted were roman shades but geez they are expensive! I just couldn’t justify the cost. So my mom and I talked through other options. We ended up with our own solution that looks like a roman shade and closes completely but for only $50. Yay! I may have to do a separate post on that. You guys also helped me pick the light! Thank you! I went with the pottery barn one and I love it. The last few things I added were the Be Brave & Courageous print, the arrow pillow, the metal baskets on the shelf, and the knit dog (Liam’s Christmas present) :). I love how it all turned out, it was a fun project!
Psst I just realized the shelf is dusty haha. Ah well!

Can you tell me where you got the animal prints?
Hi Katie, the animal prints are from Tiny Kiwi Prints on etsy: https://www.etsy.com/shop/tinykiwiprints?ref=l2-shopheader-name
Hey Kelly! Do you have a blog post anywhere for how you did the wood wall? We’re thinking of doing something similar. If you don’t have instructions anywhere, is there a blog or post somewhere that helped you create it?
Thanks so much!
Hi Melissa! Fun! We used this DIY as a guide! http://www.thriftydecorchick.com/2012/08/diy-wood-planked-wall.html Even though our end result was different! Let me know if you have any other questions!
Beautiful room! Just wondering how you did the window treatment, it’s a really nice alternative for hanging panels and a great way to add color 🙂
