Nursery Tour

So excited to finally share Tenley’s nursery! Don’t mind the sleeping baby in the crib. Nap time is the only time to get anything done these days! There are still some things I want to add, but wanted to go ahead and get this nursery tour up on the blog.  I tried to link everything too!

For whatever reason, I wasn’t originally planning on having a glider in the room. Crazy… I know! I don’t know what I’d do without one now! This Eddie Bauer glider and ottoman are on the smaller size which I love. It’s the perfect fit for her nursery!

I love the Pottery Barn/Restoration Hardware feel of this lamp from Threshold.

The sheer white curtains (from Home Goods) play off the hobnail detail of the little jar on her side table and add a girly touch to her neutral nursery.

How cute is this little side table?!  It’s so mini… I love it!  I happened across it at one of my many trips to Home Goods and it was ONLY $39!   I sit in the glider with her before nap time, so my side table must-haves are swaddles (find the wire basket here), books, and pacis.  I love storing her collection of soothies in this vintage hobnail jar (was able to find the exact one here). Anyone else have pacis all over the house?!

I searched high and low for this dresser!  I originally wanted the Hemnes Dresser in gray-brown from Ikea after seeing it here.  Once I saw it,  I had my mind set on it.  Boy was I disappointed to find out it was no longer available at Ikea! So then the search began for that unique gray-brown shade.  I couldn’t find ANYTHING I liked (other than a few from RH Baby & Child that were WAY out of my budget).  I was convinced I would have to DIY my own until I stumbled across this beauty online at Rooms To Go Kids of all places!

I was at Hobby Lobby looking for artwork for the nursery and found the two square quotes, the gold “T”, and the artwork with the three arrows.  The two pieces at the top two corners are DIY projects that I’ll do a post about soon! I knew I wanted a wooden arrow to complete this wall gallery, so I showed my mom some Pinterest inspirations and she made this one!

This acrylic tray was an item I bought for my baby shower and thought it worked perfect for holding these items on her dresser. Tenley isn’t old enough to play with these wooden blocks, but for now they display her birthday. The gold fox was a quick DIY craft, the moccasins are from Baby Gap, and these cozy hats are from Carter’s and Burt’s Bees.

I love, love, love displaying her cute little moccasins! The two white pair are from Monkey Mocs and the gold pair are from Barnyard Babes.

One of my first nursery purchases were these two storage baskets from Target.  Both baskets are from the Nate Berkus line but are no longer available; however Target always, I repeat ALWAYS, has cute baskets in stock!

Gotta have stuffed animals too! I know this elephant and super soft bunny from Sugarboo & Co. will soon be her favorites.

By far my favorite part of her room! This little glass box contains all of her hospital mementos: “I’m a Girl” info card, both her hospital hats (the one the hospital gave us and the white bow hat off of Etsy), her foot prints, our hospital bands, one of her hospital bands, and the heart beat/contraction bands.  I’ll probably add a photo of her from the hospital too.

I love the simple, clean look of her Babyletto Convertible Crib.  I stumbled across this gray star throw at Home Goods. It ties together the neutral look of her nursery but still has a fun print. Also, I love how the Threshold Eyelash Rug brightens up her room since the carpet is a darker neutral tone.

My dad always sang this song to me when I was little, so this sign from Between Me and You Signs is a sweet touch for above her crib.  The white garland next to it is just torn strips of fabric I had lying around tied onto jute rope.  Let me know if you want to see a DIY tutorial on that!


A reading nook was a must when I was creating her nursery.  My favorite memories as a kid are of my parents reading to me.  This bookshelf, lamp (this style is no longer available at Urban Outfitters) and pouf help create this simple yet special part of her nursery. I knew I wanted a gray pouf for this corner, but didn’t want to pay the $99 price tag I kept seeing online.  I happened to come across this one at TJ Maxx and it was only $25!!

This canvas is above her bookshelf in the “reading nook”. I purchased the alphabet wood art from Bookhou Designs on Etsy (this item is no longer available, but I found a similar style here). The color of the wood blended into the wall color so I glued it to a blank white canvas.  Of course she has to have one of my favorite books as a little girl, “Pat the Bunny.”

I hope you enjoyed this nursery tour as much as I enjoyed creating it!  Can’t wait to design her “big girl” room in a couple years!
