After 9 months of planning, Peanut’s nursery is finally DONE (minus a baby)!!! I am so thankful for all those who helped along the way. 

I originally wanted a nursery set that all matched from Buy Buy Baby but quickly realized that the matchy matchy look just wasn’t for me. From there, I decided to create something visually appealing using a mixture of woods and colors.

You can find the tutorial for all of these projects on my DIY craft blog, designsBYmcm.



Rob got a chance to paint the wooden prop plane I found in Lancaster after a Boeing Stearman, one of his favorite planes! It was also his idea for the parachuting turtles 🙂

Since I LOVE my Cricut, I knew I wanted to use it for some of the pieces. For the ABC piece, I used the following cartridges; Storybook, Tear Drop, George & Basic Shapes, Plantin Schoolbook, Create a Critter, Doodlecharm, and Speaking of Fall.

Rob and I really liked these two quotes and wanted Peanut to see them everyday. The one on the right I plan to say to Peanut every night before they go to bed.

The bedding is from Target and was the inspiration for the entire nursery. We looked at several cribs but fell in love with the Gulliver Spindle Crib from IKEA. The mobile was inspired by Pinterest however, I made the mistake of not looking at how they created it so I had to do a fair amount of altering to get the product I was looking for. The wall decal is from a site called Word Decor ~n~ More. 

My best friend, Michelle, made these for Peanut for Christmas. She is so crafty and even created generated pictures of what Peanut would look like based on pictures of Rob and I. We hung them using cabinet knobs from The Home Depot.

We purchased the dresser and nightstand unfinished from Derbyshire and my Mom stained them.

The bookcase was a gift from my Mom at Peanut’s Shower. It was from Wayfair. The shelving on the right is from Improvements and I thought it was a great addition to the room.
