Judd's Nursery

The baby boy's room is finally ready to share!! In fact, it's ready for baby boy to get here too. Just 7 more weeks and we will get to share his room with him. The room designed with love just for him.
Until his big debut...I am excited to share with you all!
Welcome to Judd's little space!
I painted these letters for both kids' doors. Ava's is pink with green & white striped ribbon.

I have always wanted a yellow nursery and said that if we had a boy I wanted to do primary colors but no theme, and so this is what emerged.

Here is the main view of the room and the striped wall. I had a hard time deciding on yellow or gray walls and in the end I went with Benjamin Moore's "Haystack" for the walls, with the gray stripes on the main back wall in Sherwin Williams' "Essential Gray". I got the rug this past weekend at Ikea, so that explains why it's still kind of lumpy. I guess I need to try and iron it.

I found the big letters at JoAnn's and painted them red. We also added the chair rail on that one wall.
We decided to reuse Ava's furniture as it is the crib, dresser, and armoire and it really took up too much space to convert and put in her room in this new house.

The bedding is from polka tot designs. I chose the "Taylor" bedding for my inspiration but added in all the reds as it was solely yellow and gray.  

Changing table/dresser wall. I ordered extra fabric from polka tot designs and one of SheShe Made's seamstresses made the window treatments, the pillow, and the nightstand cover. I am very pleased with how it all came out!!

Here is the nightstand covers she made. The red overlay is gray on the bottom so I can switch it out. The circle arrangement on the wall is basically just various fabrics hooped through embroidery hoops. I saw this on pinterest and had to do it! I got the polka dot diaper/wipes basket from Container Store.

Here is a close up of the curtain. It's yellow damask. I NEED a blackout liner or something under it. I just haven't found exactly what I'm looking for yet.

The glider used to be in our living room in our old house and although I hate the color of it in the nursery, sometimes I just have to tell myself to let things go. Haha! I will want it in there for those late night feedings I know. I got that precious knit blanket at Ikea this past weekend. The laundry basket is from Container Store.

This is his coming home outfit hanging on the wall. The wooden train is part of a train set was given to my brother by my nanny when he was a little boy. My nanny passed away when I was 11 and it always was a special "toy" in our house. It's also one of the very few things my mom didn't give away to Goodwill. I want to find a small stand up "J" to put in the green boxcar.  

I got this red toy chest on Zulily for a great deal. It's similar to the ones at Land of Nod, just made cheaper basically:) I plan on keeping his swaddle blankets, stuffed toys/animals, and teether toys, etc. in these bins. The name blocks were purchased on Etsy and I am very happy with the quality! His bookends are baseball players. The tiniest bit of a "theme" (if you can even call it that) is baseball. That was dad's choice as he is an ex baseball player. He has a few more baseball trinkets around the room as well. The shoes were monogrammed by yours truly and I sure hope they fit him to complete his coming home ensemble.
There is also a painting with my favorite boy quote going up above the toy bin. It had a little mishap during shipping but we can't wait to see the finished product soon!
So, there it is!
And now we wait for this sweet little bundle's arrival. In the meantime, I will continue to go in his room daily and "straighten" up all the letters, blankets, and pictures that Ava takes down to "play with" on his floor.

After having my girly girl in April of 08, and spending oodles of money on one of a kind boutique, monogrammed clothing (with hairbows to match), I decided it was time to learn this trade myself before I went broke! I learned how to sew, embroider, and make hairbows in a matter of 3 months. What started as a hobby has turned into a dream come true. I quit my job as a teacher and now work from home when the little one sleeps. My life as a mommy and a boutique clothing designer/manufacturer/monogrammer is truly the best of both worlds!! I have big dreams for the future of my family and the future of SheShe Made. Thanks for joining me as I blog about the journey. Let me know if there is a bow or outfit you'd like custom made for you! Email me at and thanks for stopping by!
