Because mom-to-be Jen loves owls, she decided to do an owl themed baby boy nursery for her son Colton. Her first challenge came when she discovered that everything owl themed for babies is made for girls and in pink. Jen forged ahead and made her own crib bedding, curtains and wall artwork.
“The beadboard is wallpaper that we put up and painted white with the beaded molding. Then we painted the top Navy Blue.”
Jen added inexpensive furniture that looked expensive and her own little touches. She made the curtains, crib skirt, mobile, lampshade, and art herself. “
“If you don’t know how to sew, use sewing tape and an iron! I made my own curtains and crib skirt and even fixed the lampshade. Use lots of fabric in different colors and prints to make it your own! We love the finished product!”
“My favorite nursery detail is the tree branch decal because it ties the whole room together.” Jen chose a giant tree branch decorated with little owls and placed it in the corner so that the branch is ‘hanging’ over Colton’s crib.
Now all that’s left to do is wait for Colton to arrive! Thanks for sharing his room with us Jen!
