Tuck’s Nursery Tour

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.

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 :: 
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.

    This is just gorgeous…stylish but just right for a baby too.

    I particularly like the maps & the quotes you have used too.

    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!
