My little cowboy is turning 2 this month and I wanted to show off his Cowboy Nursery. When we built this house I knew I wanted to do Ralph Lauren’s Indigo Denim wall treatment.
Yep, that is paint, not wallpaper. It is a simple but time consuming process (totally worth it). My husband installed the white trim shelf and hooks around the room. We left the ceiling and upper wall the base sand color of the rest of the house. A sheep skin rug warms up the berber carpet.
The white crib in the corner of the nursery was purchased in ’99 when I had my first boy. It came with a light wood finish. I had it sprayed white and scuffed it up a bit.
Shout out to my mom for letting me “borrow” her vintage ride on horse. Giddy up!
A few accessories help pull the look together. Baby Gap sold a t-shirt and bandanna blanket that has been dragged all over our house, yard, neighborhood, it’s supper soft! I found this guitar at a local DEH outlet. After scouring my Borders store I knew I needed “B is for Buckaroo” as a piece of art. And last, the little white puppy pillow is from ZGallerie.
When my husband’s grandma Jessie passed at 99, we inherited this awesome vintage farm painting. I knew it would look amazing on the denim wall, and boy does it ever!
Instead of having the builder basic closets, my husband and I decided to install our own. Since I knew this was going to be a small nursery, we removed the slider doors on the closet, installed two Home Depot closet towers in the dead spaces on either side of the opening. This left space for the changing table and a shelf above. The adjustable shelves in the towers allow for frequent reorganizing.
The janitorial supply isle at Home Depot provided great supplies like a bucket turned trash can, a perfect replacement for the nasty Diaper Genie (have you ever emptied one of those? NASTY!). Long bins act as storage for my simple changing table. A messy coat of white paint warms up the sterile galvanized metal finish. Follow that up with rough sandpaper and these babies are indestructible.
A cozy chair is a must in a nursery. I have fallen asleep many times during 2 am feedings. Now it is the perfect chair to read a bed time story or sing a nighttime lullaby.
This room is one of my all time favorites. It is very versatile, just take out all of the western accessories and this room can grow with my little boy. What’s next?…dinosaurs, sailing, or maybe rock and roll?! Stay tuned.
