It’s a Boy! Nursery Decor

Thank you for all the kind comments on my last post about the Modern Bee book! This
year has been so full of exciting changes and the last few weeks have been no

Nursery Dresser

My husband and I made the move to Nashville, Tennessee
earlier this year, and we just moved again to a new house on Labor Day
weekend. One of the reasons was to make room for our new addition.

If you follow me on Instagram, you might have seen my announcement a few weeks back that we’re having a boy!

Nursery Shelf and Jars

My mom came to visit last weekend from Ohio, and she and I had too much fun putting together this nursery. And I couldn’t have done any of it without her help! She painted the walls, refinished the dresser, and helped me put up artwork around the room. A favorite piece is this antique wooden Pepsi crate made into a shelf. I’ve been jonesing for some blue-glass jars for a little while, and the cute cast-iron, antique bunny perfectly matches the . . .

It was my first time doing anything like this, but they went on super easy and they can be easily removed later on.

This rustic clock was an antique mall find, and the Pleated Boxes Pillow is from the Sew Along I hosted on Craft Buds last year. Of course, once you have some cute dresser drawers, you need to shop the Target clearance racks to find something to put in them. Thanks, mom!
I’m so thankful that my friend Veronica gave us this beautiful crib (not as difficult to assemble as I once imagined), and the super-comfy glider was another gift from our new neighbors! I’ve heard these will come in very handy. 🙂 The dresser and nightstand were lucky flea market finds.
Here’s a wide shot of the opposite side of the nursery. The window gives a lot of natural light, which makes me think this will make a great room for photographing sewing projects.

Thanks so much for taking a look! With the nursery ready, the next step is choosing a name. Although we’ve got plenty of time until January, it’s proving to be a pretty serious task.
