Baby Boy's Room

Baby Boy Turner's room is just about finished so I thought I'd share! The main colors are gray, teal, black, and white with a splash of orange! It is very modern with lots of geometric shapes and clean lines. I'm not really into baby stuff so it's more on the grown up side but still fun, I think! I love how it turned out but I'm most proud to say that by using items we already had, thrifting, using gift cards, and shopping smart we only ended up spending about $300 on his room! Most people spend more than that on just the crib or the chair!
crib: IKEA GULLIVER $99.99
rug: IKEA VIDSTRUP  $79.99
chair: IKEA (have had for years- bough second hand)
art: Target $19.99
silver curtain rod: Target $16.99
gray curtains: Walmart Sun Zero Millennial Arya $10.48 ea
Whale Sheets: Babies R Us High Seas Sheets $17.99
Wall Color: Benjamin Moore Wickham Gray

 This is his changing station/ dresser. All of his clothes are washed and organized according to size/in the dresser. Diapers and wipes are in the basket next to the changing pad and creams and meds are in the metal basket on the shelf above.

 dresser: antique (bought 19 years ago)
polka dot basket: Target $6.99
shelves: IKEA Ekby Osten shelf with Ekby Lerberg brackets $21.98 (for both)
geometric bear on top shelf: Target (holiday collection) $15
 This is one of the shelves that I used to use for my shoes. I was somehow able to condense my shoes down to one bookcase so I could keep this one in his room for toys, books, blankets, shoes,  and decorative items. I'm still tweaking this a bit and obviously I need to add photos to some of the frames.

bookcase: IKEA Billy $79.99
turquoise wire basket: Target $9.99
stuffed shark: IKEA $8

The cat on the top shelf and the silver clock under it were my grandma's who passed away in June. It was really important to me to have some pieces of her in his room.

 I put the ottoman under the window for more seating but it can also slide over in front of the chair so we can put our feet up during those late night feedings. The ottoman is filled with diapers! I have  couple of orange pillows that go against the window but they were in the wash when I took these photos.

 art: Etsy Lil' Surfer $19.99

 The start of his shoe collection

 behind the door storage for robes, baby carrier, diaper bag, etc. I've seen lots of couples register for 2 separate diaper bags so to save money I decided to find one bag that both my hubby and I like and this vegan leather backpack was the perfect solution! I am so in love with it! It's so cool you would never know it's a diaper bag!

Ergo Baby carrier: eBay $25 (saved $100!)
Diaper Bag: Nordstrom The Honest Co. City Backpack $150 (Christmas Gift from my parents!)

If I didn't source something it's probably because it's something we've had for years that I pulled from another room in the house, or it was gifted, or thrifted! But please don't hesitate to ask if you have any questions!

Now all we need is a our baby boy!

  6. You can tell so much thought and love has gone into his room. I love the book shelf area the best. The blueguitar, the art wall your husband did, the shark and his shoe collection are ball so cute. When is he arriving Lindsey? 2016 will be a great year for you and your family.
