Tuck's Nursery Tour







This room was a fun project to put together over the course of my pregnancy.  I found out Tuck was a boy early on (15 weeks).  Tossed all of my ideas about a girly french room right out the window, and started thinking about boy nurseries.  I don't know if there's much of a theme.  If so, maybe "mischievous peter rabbit goes traveling on an adventure and gets happily stuck out at sea".  My favorite color from the beginning of time has been a really soft shade of turquoise, so it was fun to put touches of it all over.  Everyone that comes into the room always remarks how peaceful and calming it is, and that's what I was going for. 
The crib and changing table were both major scores from Craigs List.  go craigslist, but also, you scare me.  and I digress ... the nursery is just packed full with love and so much of it was gifted to Tuck.  like the painting of the baby with his shoe off... that hung in my grandmother's, mother's, mine, and now tucks nursery.  heirlooms are THE BEST things in life.  And just so many thoughtful gifts sprinkled around his room.

ps:
Just so you know, nesting is real.  I had it real real bad too.  I tore curtains down, and sent bags upon bags to goodwill.  It was a little crazy over here (:


Here are more details.  Leave a comment if I missed something, and I'll try and source it for you :: 
Furniture:  wrought iron crib and changing table (craigs list find of an older pottery barn crib.  I paid $150 for both of them! steal.  Similar / similar), chair found at marshalls (similar), glider (same but mine has brown piping), both side tables are old as the hills.  and one was actually painted that color about 5 years ago. // rope chandelier

Linens:  anchor / whales  / curtains are from ikea / rug /

Prints, Map, and photos:  Jessica Lorren (three swiss photos together) // Oh My Deer Handmades (EE Cummings and I love you more than tongue can tell)// Jeremiah 1:5 via Love Juliet //  Southern Weddings Shop   (LOVE NEVER FAILS)// Sarah Tucker (big center ocean photo from our trip in Dubrovnik), TUCK garland  // The Map // Zepheniah print

Golden "T":  was painted gold but originally from anthropologie

storage:  all purchased from michaels, even the one that houses his toys.

  32. To go along with your post from tonight, I'm finally breaking out of my silent reader shell and screaming I LOVE TUCK'S NURSERY! You did an absolutely incredible job and the traveling theme is delicious and so sweet!

    ReplyDelete
  33. I adore Tucks nursery! When we designed our nursery, I tried to throw a "theme" out the window too and I love how you described yours... filling his room with so many sentimental items and things you love can only make it a very happy and peaceful place to dream and grow. I'm with @Jessica that linen album is beautiful and if you find out where you received that from I'd love to know!
