Ryerson’s Nursery

While we still have yet to decide on a name, seriously biggest struggle this pregnancy, everything is ready to go for baby. When I say everything is ready to go, I mean everything is ready to go. Our bags are packed, the bassinet is waiting in our room, the living room is prepped with a change station and as of this weekend the room is 100% ready to go. I debated back and forth on posting this before babies arrival as I wanted to title it something other than Baby Number Three’s Nursery but I guess for now it will do and I can always come back and change it once we have met our new little dude.

Preparing the babies room has always been one of my favourite things about being pregnant. With Hazel we had her room ready months in advance, I blame that on being eager new parents. We didn’t know her gender so her room was kept fairly neutral, grays, whites and pops of yellow. It was a very calming room and I would spend hours in it waiting her arrival, you can see it here. With Everett we found out his gender and I wanted to make some small changes to the room, add in a few more boyish touches, yet still leave it fairly neutral. So with a little paint and a few new decor pieces we switched it up for his arrival, see it here. His room was completed a little closer to his arrival but we were also working on Hazel’s big girl room at the same time.

With this room, I had ideas for both genders and as soon as we found out we were going to be welcoming another little boy I set out on making my visions come to life. As much as I loved the grays and whites we had previously I wanted something completely fresh this time. I had dreams of a crisp neutral room with pops of greens and woodland animals. The first thing to go from the previous nurseries was the refinished rocking chair, I had actually sold it long before we found out we were expecting. Instead I wanted something a little comfier and cozier, so I picked out this gliding chair from Wayfair. The price point is perfect and so far it has proven to be quite comfy. Both the cat and I enjoy curling up in it 😉

Of course the more time I spent going in and out of the room, the dresser started sticking out to me. As much as I love white furniture it just wasn’t sitting well with me and on a whim I decided it needed a little make over. I partnered with the Spruce Collective, using their furniture paint in Oak Moss, to give it a face lift and I am beyond happy with the results. Hands down it is probably the best furniture paint I have used and I have done a few refinishing projects. I have already told Ev our dresser is up next and I will be heading back for another can. I finished off the dresser facelift with some new brass hardware that Hazel helped me pick out.

One of the biggest changes to the room was our crib. While our previous crib was in near perfect condition,  again it just wasn’t sitting right with the rest of what I had going on in the room. So on another whim off it went and after quick trip to IKEA we had a simple and neutral crib to complete the room. Now most importantly, and probably one of the focal pieces of the room, are the woodland themed prints above the crib. When I was originally sourcing out our Christmas cards I stumbled upon these prints on Minted and instantly fell in love. The hardest part was narrowing down which three prints I wanted as all the animals were just too cute! I went with the brass frames which we tied in with the brass hardware on the dresser.

Now of course I am saving the best for last. Hands down probably my favourite thing in the whole room, and the last thing to be completed are the hanging shelves that Ev built for me. I had been back and forth on what type of shelves I wanted above the little bookcase but was so indecisive of what I wanted. It got to the point where I was like just throw up some shelves with brackets and let it be, but he wouldn’t listen and insisted we were going to make my idea of hanging shelves happen. At this point I pretty much left it in his hands and I am so happy with how they turned out. While they look like they might move quite a bit, they are actually very sturdy and have yet to budge an inch from the wall. I was eagerly excited to fill them with little mementos, Oak Mocs passed on from Everett, our tattered but much loved board books, a little Cactus and pot from Three Corners Artisan, the Heirloom Bunny Rattle from From the Seeds and most importantly the letter board from Shop Words and Co, (use code cheerio15 for 15% off until Friday February 23rd) which I will be using to document our milestones this time around.

    That rope shelf and blanket ladder is so perfect with his crib! Love the simplicity of the neutrals in his nursery!
