Well, we knew when out little boy was on the way what the nursery theme was going to be. We are a hunting family and reading my husband’s mind (no matter what other cute themes I saw), I knew it was going to be CAMOUFLAGE!
So here are some nursery pictures.
Notice all the stuffed animals aren’t traditional.
I set out when planning to find all the forest animals I could find to fit with the theme and expose our son early to the things that we love. It was so much fun looking for them and then finding the elk, deer, squirrel, coyote, eagle, big horn ram, and black bear.
The nursery was pieced together with craigslist finds and frugal ideas to compliment our camouflage.
Crib and Changing table/dresser was $400 (retails for $1200).
Pottery Barn style rocking chair $150 (similar retail for $500-$800)
Creative Frugal Ideas:
Wall name art
Items needed: Branch, coordinating ribbon, small pine cones, letters, paint, glue gun, and poster putty.
Shelf with Mason Jars
Items needed for shelf: Wood, router, brackets, liquid nails, drill, and screws.
Items needed for Mason Jars: old mason jars with lids; and various natural materials such as moss, pine cones, and pebbles.
Aren’t they cute?
