Jackson's Nursery


Welcome to Jackson's Nursery

Now that we are finally settling into a good routine I wanted to show you Jackson's Nursery. We've been working on his room almost my entire pregnancy. As most pregnant Mom's will tell you, the nursery is such an important thing. I felt like it was my gift to Jackson and wanted him to feel at home in his new room. Crazy, maybe?


My goal with Jackson's room was to make it contemporary to go with the rest of our house. I'm not a huge fan of character nurseries but just fell in love with the Dwell Studio's Owls.



So when my cousin said she could make a mobile that looked like the Dwell Studio's Owls I was so excited. It turned out great and Jackson loves to watch the owls and trees spin around.



Next we needed something to decorate the walls and I had some wall decals in mind I had seen on Etsy. I think they go really well with the Dwell Owls.


I then added some elements on a shelf to pull the room together and give it a more personal touch. I found the these mercury glass owls at West Elm, the picture was cross stitched by my aunt, my Mom found his initial train in Amish Country and the "family" statue was give to us when Jackson was in NICU by my Mom's friend. Also, I put a pacifier jar on the shelf. I saw this on a design site and thought it was a perfect element for a nursery. Plus a great way to not lose pacifiers!


I love doing DIY projects so I had to make sure to include some of my handy work in Jackson's room. These pictures were featured in this post.


To handle Jackson's cloth diapers, I added a bin on the top of the dresser next to his changing pad to store the diapers in. Also, we have a pail with our Planetwise wet bag to store the dirty diapers.

Great job! I'm sure Jackson LOVES it!

I love the DIY art (nicely done) and the family Willowtree Angel is perfect! Very nice touch.

Hope you're enjoying every moment of having Jackson home!

My nursery is still not finished! It's painted, there is a changing table but currently it holds stuff meant for the walls and the crib is in pieces! I'm sure Sam will be staying in there sooner than I would like! Right now he sleeps in the bassinet level of our pack'n'play and I used to keep diaper stuff on half and he slept on half but he's getting so big and wiggles so much that diapers get less and less room. Also, I love my planetwise wetbag. I got a thirsties one to travel with but it has so many seams it's not as watertight.
