Zachary's Something Old, Something New Nursery

My Room

Name: Zachary
Location: Oklahoma City, OK

We have put a lot of love into our 1940's home, and baby Zach's nursery was no exception. Not long after we found out there was a baby on the way we set to work on making his room a fun and useable space.

We tore out two original built-ins (a book case and a desk) that had seen better days. Partly because we liked the look and partly to patch the holes made by tearing out the built-ins, we put up wood wainscoting around the entire room. This was a lot of work and a much bigger job than we had anticipated, but the final result is beautiful.

The rest of the room really came together after I chose the curtain fabric (Premier Prints - Hooty Village). We bought a Craigslist armoire to use for clothes storage and refinished it in Annie Sloan's Barcelona Orange. The crib is the Harper from Giggle, which we love! The Jenny Lind changing table was actually used in my own nursery when I was a baby. It had been tucked in my grandmother's attic all these years. We also purchased a glider and ottoman from a local baby shop.

Our favorite accessories:
Spray painted trophies from our childhood collections
A buffalo print from The Animal Print Shop
Custom Fletcher and Fox arrows from Etsy

We love the space that we created especially for our baby boy. It has become our favorite room of the house, which is good because it is where we spend a great deal of our time!
