Modern boys nursery for baby Ben

Categories   Nursery + Kids Room Decor

Such a sweet, modern boy’s nursery and newborn shoot today by the lovely Erin J. Saldana. Ben’s mama and papa wanted to be both “green” by using what had been passed down from others, and frugal at the same time. Perfect combo, actually! They also had a great eye for design and put together such a nice space for their little guy.

The pretty wood stars are made from paint sticks cut to different sizes and screwed together. Genius!

They painted an accent wall in his room with a loose herringbone pattern.

They also painted an old dresser bright green to keep with their whimsical theme. Isn’t it so fun? Plus hung a peg board above the changing table for necessities. It’s so functional and adds such a nice graphic element to the room. Wait til Ben is sitting up and ripping things off the wall. LOL!

And they made the beautiful mobile from scrapbook paper.

Congrats to mama and papa for creating a sweet space on a budget for their little one… and for making such a yummy baby too.

Kelly - Such a great color, right? We're not quite sure of the exact brand they used, but this Sherwin-Williams, Envy green is pretty close: http://www.sherwin-williams.com/homeowners/color/find-and-explore-colors/paint-colors-by-family/SW6925-envy/
