Behold, the Nursery!



It's finally finished. After months and months of dreaming up and creating Finn's Alaskan nursery we are done and I couldn't be more happy cause I was losing all motivation to finish it (the belly is getting big and the energy is running low). As I have said before we decided to go with a rustic Alaskan, outdoorsy theme. There's lots of wood, lots of plaid, and much of it we created all on our own. The next few blog posts will be about how we created the different elements in the room. So stay tuned!


We moved into our home with the room looking like this. Yellow walls, and see through chiffon drapes. No thanks.






The crib is the Graco Charleston, I love the cherry wood. And the little tree in the corner is plastic. It is from Tai Pan Trading in West Jordan. The quilt I made for Noah a few years ago, it's a photo quilt. I made the burlap crib skirt. The wall hanging on the right side is a vintage souvenir tablecloth from Alaska we bought online.



I love Marv the moose. We got him from Zgallerie, he was our first purchase for the nursery.



The gallery wall was a fun project. We got linus bear on the left from this Etsy shop. My aunt Mikelle made me the blue print on the far left it says "I Love You From Here to Alaska." The rest are photographs, the far right photograph is of my pops. The oar in the middle that says Skagway was actually found in Skagway, Noah and I carved it while we were there for the summer.



Pallet book shelves. These are probably my favorite part of the room.



This switch plate was purchased from this Etsy shop.




We received this wooden rocker as a gift. It was a thrifted find.



I made these curtains out of  white linen and Noah made the curtain rods.





We got the blue dresser and vintage lantern from a consignment shop called The Old Flamingo in Salt Lake City. The adorable wood grain lamp shade is from Land of Nod. The lamp stand is from Ikea. The photos are of the grandparents.




Hanging pendant lamp. This was quite the project but I love how it turned out. The shade and cord is from Ikea but we added a little rustic charm to it.






The sheepskin rug is from Ikea, as well as the moose rocker (we painted it brown, it was originally red). Lucy certainly fits in well with the nursery. (She loves the rug).


We are so excited about Finn's cozy little space and can't wait for him to be here to enjoy it. 
Again, I'll be posting about how we created the DIY projects for this room throughout the week. 

Let us know what you think of Finn's Alaskan hideaway!
