Bryce's Beach Themed Nursery

Bryce's Beach Themed Nursery

When we started trying for our first child we were on vacation in Cape Cod and my husband came up with the idea of doing a beach themed nursery. We used a light blue paint, because our nursery is a small room and we didn't want a darker color that might make it seem smaller. My mother painted a beach mural on one wall and then an accent wall with a wave and some boats.

The crib is by Munire and we bought it at USA Baby. The changing table/dresser is from Target and the armoire we found on craigslist. The glider chair was also found on craigslist and the ottoman was bought online and then slipcovered.

We used the Little Fishies crib bedding from Pottery Barn Kids. The curtains were purchased with the bedding and then we added blackout shades for naptime.

For extra lighting, we added a white paper lantern from Pottery Barn. We thought it continued the beachy look and was a nice soft light for middle-of-the-night feedings.

Most of the wall decor and accessories we bought while we were on vacation in St. Augustine for our babymoon. Some of the pictures are actual pictures of my husband's sand castles that he built on various vacations. The shells, starfish and sand in the shadowboxes came from our vacation as well. The cabana over the closet was hand-made by my mother.

Most of the baby things are stored in the armoire or closet. My husband re-built the closet to add shelves in the middle and 4 smaller racks instead of one big long one. We have a few little bins on the floor for books and toys.

It took us a while to complete everything just because we were on a limited budget and also because it was quite difficult to find crib bedding that was beach-themed. I had lots of help from my mom and husband. My mom did all the sewing and creative painting and my husband put together all the furniture, painted the main wall color and built the closet. We also had a friend come in and do the scripture on the wall - 1 Samuel 1:27 which says "For this child I prayed and the Lord has granted me what I asked of him."

What I love most is that when you walk into the room it is calming. Also, that we put our hearts into it - my favorite part was adding the little creative touches. I also love that it is full of memories from the past and to come.

I love it - I'm a sucker for the beach and the room is really tranquil. I really like the idea of using actual sand castle photos - Bryce will be very happy in this room surrounded by family memories I'm sure!
