Tripp's Nursery Reveal

Thursday, July 7, 2011

Well, we are now able to room in with Mr. Tripp. He is doing great and cruising through his milestones for discharge. We don't expect it to be too much longer now. Since we are staying with him and he sleeps most of the day, I thought it was a perfect time to reveal his nursery. We had so much fun putting this room together for him. Richard put up crown moulding and painted the wainscoting and walls. I envisioned the room with "pops" of red, but I love the color so much that is kind of "popped everywhere." Enjoy the pictures. Little baby Tripp will be enjoying his room in no time!

View from the front door looking in. We did floor to ceiling faux panels in indoor/outdoor fabric. Perfect for little boy durability! The dresser is from Ikea, but has been dressed up with vintage faucet valves. The glider has been recycled from all of our kids and worked great in here too. It is accented with an organic quilt made by Richard's Mom and a furry pillow from Homegoods. Wall color is misty gray from Sherwin Williams.

I had the lamp stand, but recently added the burlap drumshade from Target.
Here are knobs close-up. They were a great etsy find. at $1.25 each. I was lusting after $8 knobs from Anthropoligie, but could not justify that cost with needing 12 total. The shop is called scrapyardgirl...go find her!
Red painted crib. This was Mia's old sleigh crib from Pottery Barn. Yes, it has the drop rails...those have been fixed. The crib skirt is Glenna Jean Cooper fabric. The red paint is fire engine from Sherwin Williams. Above the crib are embroidery hoops filled with fabrics from the room and also some fun ones that Richard picked out. Including baseball, underdog, and camo.
The Letters!!! These are my favorite part. I would love to say that I made them, but I can't take credit. If you have a lot of time and don't have a toddler or a huge pregnant belly, these could be a fun DIY project. I ordered mine from "A work in Progress" on Etsy.
Daybed and Letter wall. I have put a daybed in all of the nurseries and it works out so well. It is a great place to sleep on those rougher nights or an extra place for guests. My favorite part about it is that the room is ready to go once the child outgrows the nursery and needs it to be toddler friendly. Just remove the crib and glider, bring in an art table, and converted! The daybed is an old army issue bed from Craigslist also painted the same red of the crib. The back pillows are from Ikea. The rest are custom made by Richard's Mom.
The red shag rug is from Ikea. We are going to have a lot of fun playing on this super plush rug. Mia loves it already! The book shelf and zigzag shelves are from Ikea. The plaque is from a craft mall that I just happened upon. It could also be a DIY project with wood and stencils. Mr Tripp already loves his paci, so I am glad to have a whole jar ready to go for him!

View from the glider to the door.

Close up of the shelves. My original vision was to have red and white chevron curtains that would mirror these fun shelves, but that search came up empty. I have seen where you can take a stripe fabric and make it into a chevron, but my seamstress did not deserve that headache!

Tada! That is Tripp's room. Better late than never. If you want more specifics on anything in the room, let me know.

  10. WOW! I love this room! I think the chevron shelves and alphabet wall are especially awesome! GREAT JOB!

  11. Hi, I saw your amazing nursery on Ohdeedoh. I read that you used a paint sprayer to paint the crib red. I've been wanting to do this for my next baby and I have some questions. Did you have to strip and prime it first, or did you just blast it on? Did you put some kind of finishing coat on it after? Was it glossy or semi-gloss paint? Any info you could give me would be much appreciated.
    Congratulations on your new little boy, he is adorable and your daughter is a beauty.
