Baby Boy Bird Theme Nursery

Welcome to baby’s room! This is our home nursery where our littlest one sleeps and poops and plays. Right now it is accented in blue with a bird theme, but when my daughter was a baby, it was accented pink with a circle theme. We painted green so that it could go boy or girl depending on what colors we added to the decor.
This is what you see when you first enter the room.

The wall art I drew on with black sharpie. The room has an underlying bird theme and I thought a baby bird with his Momma was perfect.
I love the white furniture contrasting with the espresso. Don’t feel like you always need your colors and stains to match!
The DIY pom poms above the crib I made from two packs of tissue paper that cost $3.50 total. They are secured in the center with a paperclip and hung with fishing line. You can learn to make your own tissue paper pom poms with the photo tutorial on my blog.
Almost everything in this nursery was gifted to us or sources secondhand. If you read my blog, you know I think secondhand is the man. I write a lot about how I find secondhand deals on Craigslist and I have a successful post about how to find the great garage sales.
This white changing table is a seriously useful piece of furniture since I cloth diaper!
If you swing around to the other side of the room, this is what you see.
Those IKEA bookshelves hold tons of toys and books for my kids--they are GREAT! I think it's meant to be used standing up, but I just flipped it on its side and its even better.
The adorable decal on the wall was the initial inspiration for the room's colors and theme. If you’ve seen my Dr. Seuss room, you know I probably should’ve just painted this on the wall myself instead of buying a decal. It’s been up since the first week we moved into our home 4 years ago; I’ve just been too lazy to create something more personalized.
The mobile hanging in this corner was a DIY craft my friend Lexi and I made out of toilet paper rolls. We cut them up, painted them, and hung them with fishing line from a wire bent into a circle.
These glittery branches are so pretty, I used them to decorate my Christmas tree this last year, too!

Last is the closet...
As you can see, I use shoe organizers to hold my baby's clothes. This way I don't really need a dresser; all his clothes hang in the closet.
