Owen’s Nursery

I finished Owen’s nursery before he was born but I didn’t have time to write this post! So here are a whole bunch of pictures of his nursery taken before he was born. Now the room is a lot more lived in and a little messier but so far I think Owen loves it!

Here is a reminder of what it looked like right after we moved in:


Fairy stickers on the wall with green and purple paint. Awesome.


And here it is now! Dan was amazing and added the built in bookshelves as well as all the board and batten. I painted my blanket chest that I built in high school (Dan has one as well!).


My mom bought us the amazing glider and we love it. It is so so comfortable and I have already put it to good use in the past few weeks with Owen!


I made the artwork above the dresser myself. I copied some things I have seen online but I really love it.


I bought the dresser on KSL and re-finished it. My mother in law sewed the changing pad cover for us. We have since moved the blue laundry basket into the closet and added a diaper genie to the other side of the dresser.


The cute polka dot knobs are from Hobby Lobby and the silver pulls are from Lowes.


Here is the inside of his dresser with all his clothes ready for him! We have SO MANY clothes, I can’t even believe it. I only put 0-6 months in the drawers and closet and they are totally full.


We are actually doing cloth diapers (I know, just when you thought I couldn’t get any more granola…) and we started last week and so far it is going really well! I may do a post on that at some point. But we are still using disposable sometimes so they are ready to go in his dresser.


I love all the awesome books we have so far and I can’t wait to read them to Owen! I hope he gets my love of books and not his Dad’s…


I made the animal artwork with my Silhouette.


My mom and sister have bought a bunch of adorable wooden toys that I absolutely LOVE! My mom gave Owen a sweet wooden train set for Christmas that I didn’t have on the bookshelves yet, but it’s so cute!


The awesome quilt was made by Dan’s cousin, Vienna and I absolutely adore it!



We love Owen’s room and I’m so grateful that Dan put up with my crazy ideas and that he worked so hard to make it look awesome! Owen loves it too and he has been sleeping in his crib for about a week now and he has been doing great. We put a lot of work into this room and we love it!
