Harper's Little Man Nursery!

I am a delinquent mama. We moved several months ago and I never posted photos of Harper's new nursery. We call this room his "little man room" because we decided to go more classic and less baby. He was already 6 months old when we moved so it didn't make sense to me to do another themed nursery. I wanted something that he could grow with. Harper's sweet Nana gave him a giant giraffe for Christmas and it is the perfect final touch for his room. I still have a few more crafty projects up my sleeve for fun decorative pieces that I want to put on his bookshelf but I think it is pretty much as close to finished as it will ever be. It could be years before I have time to do daily craft projects again!

  • The crib is by Baby's Dream and it is the Legendary Safety-gate Crib is espresso.
  • The wall decal is by Back-40-Life. It is a wonderful Etsy shop with lots of fun decorative decals. The family that owns the shop is actually local. They are from Greenville, SC! 
  • The bedding is "Master Blue" by Hoohobbers. We love the pale green, blue, and beige combo. 
  • And we have a sleep sheep on his crib. I recommend this for every expecting mother. Harper still loves it every night. It is a cuddly plush toy that provides soothing sounds to help your baby sleep. We got the travel version because we are always on the road.

  • The glider is by a company called, "Four Seasons." The green fabric was a perfect match so I was thrilled! And it is a slipcover. So if Harper decides he hates green one day, I can just change the cover and not have to worry about buying a brand new chair!
  • Our sweet friend, "MiMi" made the window treatments for Harper's room. It was such a gracious gift. Thank you, thank you, thank you Mimi! I had a hard time finding pre-made boy valances. All of the cute ones were so girly. These couldn't be more perfect. 
  • And I found the cute little owls at West Elm. They reminded me of Jonathan Adler without the huge price tag! 
  • I love the blue stripes on the one wall. We decided to do just one wall so it wasn't overwhelming. We used a metallic paint so it has a nice shine to it in the light!
  • I found all of my artwork in the nursery on Etsy. It saved me HUNDREDS of dollars! Expecting mom's look here FIRST. Trust me. All of the Etsy artists custom do the colors to match your room perfectly. The "Little Man" print was found here. And the fox and owl print was found here.
  • My mom bought the giant giraffe from Imagination Station in downtown Spartanburg. It is the perfect addition to the room and Harper LOVES it!
  • I found my piggy bank and frames that are on the book shelf at TJ Maxx Home. They were CHEAP! I think the bank was $12.99 and the frames were all less than $8. 
  • I bought the scripture that is above Harper's closet from Back-40-Life too! It was about $12.
  • The changing table is the matching dresser from Baby's Dream. 
  • I got a matching Hoohobbers hamper and had it monogrammed with "Clothes" & "Towels"
  • Bird Ave. did his "Oh Baby" print. It is actually a little paler in real life. He matched the colors PERFECTLY for the nursery! Check him out here. All of his prints are adorable! 
  • And the little animal watercolor illustrations were found here. I had them matted with a burlap and pale green matte.

  • And this is the last little nook of Harper's room. It is actually right when you walk in his door. 
  • I bought the white cube shelving system at Target.
  • I bought the prints at this Etsy store! They CRACK me up!
  • I bought the plastic container at Pottery Barn Kids outlet and the finger puppets inside at IKEA.
  • The giraffe frame was hand painted by an incredible artist! 
  • The lion toy on the shelf is made of cordorouy. I LOVE IT! And it is sooo soft. We bought it at Imagination Station too! 
  • I found the airplane globe at TJ Maxx Home. 
I hope you all like Harper's room! It is my current favorite room in the house. Next up, the master bedroom!
