Come on in, take a look around ...
Many of the items in his small but cozy space are vintage, handmade, or hand-me-downs. (With the exception of a few IKEA pieces of course.) The walls are painted with Benjamin Moore Natura in Waterfall. The bed is the top half of a hand-me-down bunk bed. (It was where I/Jason slept when Jude was first transitioning to his crib, AKA a life saver.) It's also a great spot to store things.
My dad, Jude's Pappy, painted the anchor mural, which served as the inspiration for the rest of the decor. I made the mobile (click here for a tutorial) and the blanket (click here for a tutorial). The crib and other bedding are IKEA.
The curtains conceal the closet, which I have yet to clear of a lot of my own stuff. His bassinet holds all his stuffed animals (click here for more about the bassinet). The rug is a family heirloom that was once in Jason's (Jude's dad) room when he was little.
The dressers are IKEA, I got two small ones to allow for more flexibility in arrangement. One dresser also serves as the changing table. The map is Cavallini & Co. wrapping paper, and the cork board displays vintage month posters.
The anchor hook is from Monkey & Squirrel, the wave pillow cases are from Urban Outfitters, and the Sailor's Delight poster is from Brainstorm. Jason made the little copper sailboat when he was eight years old, and he found the nautical fan pulls at Home Depot of all places.
So there you have it. Jude's Nautical Nursery. It's not fancy, but it was made with love. Thanks for stopping by.
