Modern Airplane Nursery Idea
by Ashley Franks
Modern Airplane Nursery Idea
We have worked really hard on our nursery idea for little Roman's room and we are pretty much finished!! The room is 16' x 17', so we had a TON of space to work with. I put a queen size bed in the room to help fill the space. There is still plenty of space for him to crawl around and play. I've really tried to be "crafty" and budget throughout the process. It's been a blast!!!
His crib bedding is really simple. I wanted a clean, crisp look. We registered for it at Pottery Barn Kids.
The pillow on the glider matches his bedding and has his initials on it.
To make the room feel taller, I mounted the curtains to the ceiling and I fell in love with these airplane finials at Land of Nod from Crate and Barrel.
Roman better love airplanes because his toddler bed is already set up!
The bedding on the queen bed is navy gingham sheets with a plain white duvet cover and an airplane quilt and shams from Pottery Barn Kids.
We framed airline maps and hung them above the bed. We picked random cities in the US to frame.
I got matching gingham lampshades for the bedside tables and of course a few airplanes to spice it up!!
I didn't want to buy a separate changing table, so I just put the changing pad on the dresser.
I just fell in love with this step stool!!! The metal airplanes behind it still need to be hung from the ceiling. That's our finishing touch!!
There is also an adorable hand painted rocking horse that Matt's grandmother gave us and a handmade blanket that my mom's friend made.
Here are the finished paintings that I did for Roman. They are done with acrylic paint that I had left over from college. I even had the blank canvases in our storage! Virtually free artwork!!
I bought these shelves from Target and filled them with baskets and the gingham liners from Pottery Barn Kids. I needed to tie in the gingham theme from the other side of the room plus we really needed the storage.
That's all!! I can't wait for Roman to see his room!!! I know he won't completely appreciate our hard work, but I've thoroughly enjoyed the entire process.
