Sloane’s Nursery Reveal


I am super excited about how little Mr. Sloane’s room is turning out. Although it is not 100% finished (and may never be), it is pretty darn close so I thought I would share some pictures!

This is the view from when you walk in to the room.


I had bought a dresser off Craigslist for Bents room (because we moved his dresser/changing table to the nursery) and the dresser had this mirror attached to it. I had been looking for the perfect mirror to put his monogram decal on…and it just so worked out that the mirror detached from the dresser and I used it for the decal project! Double win!

It’s not very often things work out that perfectly. Especially with Craigslist items. :)

I decided to go with a gray and white theme. I realized I was kinda out of choices. P’s room is green. Bents is done in blues. So Sloane…well….there weren’t a ton of choices left for the colors of his room if I wanted it to be different than the other two.

At first, I thought gray and white might be too drab for me…but his room has now officially become my favorite of the three! Especially with the hint of teal!

“Circa”, our giant elephant that P got from Aunnie, became my inspiration for the nursery!


We hired a painter to paint our wall stripes. He did amazing! Seriously, some of the straightest lines I have ever seen!

Another thing that I love about the nursery is that every piece of furniture is something we already had. This dresser use to be mine in college. My dad painted it a light gray and it turned out great!


The white bookshelf, to the left, use to be in our old office (before we re-did it). My dad also painted it white for us! 

And, of course, the glider was also in Bents room! Oh how I love that glider!

The changing table, to the right, came from Bents room as well.

I got this cute little elephant wall piece at hobby lobby on clearance! Score!

I had a friend of ours mom make all of the bedding for me! She had never done a crib set before, but she did AWESOME! It is exactly what I wanted and looks perfect in the room! She also made the curtains for me too!

I could not have been happier with how it turned out!


We ended up getting Bents a new crib and letting Sloane use the old crib. I had debated whether I would get Bents a big boy bed or another crib, but that child is such a fabulous sleeper that I am not about to mess it up. So, a new crib it was. We shall see how much longer before he’s crawling out.

The only thing I don’t have done….the wall above the crib. Right now it is blank. My original vision was to do the mirror with the monogram decal above the crib, but it looks so much better as the entrance piece to the room. So, now I am on a hunt for something for over the crib. Any ideas?


You may think this lamp is nothing great, but this lamp came from B’s basement. Another little something that I wanted to take to remember her by! I will have to dig up the “before” picture, but I spray painted it silver and bought the lamp shade at Big Lots (by the way, I hadn’t been to Big Lots in ages until last week….not as terrible as I imagined). It fits the room perfectly, not to mention, it makes me think of her everytime I look at it!

There you have it, Sloane’s nursery project is almost complete! 

What do you think?

I happen to ADORE it!

My husband says he feels like he may puke when he sits in there because of all the funky patterns going on! Ha! He says the walls “hypnotize” him. My thoughts: Great! Maybe they will hypnotize you in to changing all the poopy diapers. Exactly what I was going for!

UPDATE: I had my 37 week doctor appointment today and I am dilated 3 cm’s and 70 % effaced! I am hoping that means baby SJ is on his way soon! Once I was dilated to a 3 with Bents, it wasn’t long before he came. Maybe just a couple days.

    Question for you: please, please do tell where that elephant is from?! Baby Jackson NEEDS it!

    I think it is fabulous! I love the original color choice and the stripes are the perfect shade of grey! Have you thought about getting Kim from Tiny Prints to do a painting for over the bed? I think she was opening up her wait list again. I bet she could do something fun to match the room!

    Mandy, you were great to work with and your vision became a beautiful reality. What baby wouldn’t be happy in this room. Loved the fabrics you chose and that you gave me some liberties. Thanks for thinking of me to help put baby Sloane’s room together.

    Gorgeous nursery!! I was wondering where you got your glider? Also, what is the color grey used for the stripe?

  8. says

    LOVE LOVE LOVE your nursery! I blogged about because I thought your approach was so different. The layering of color and pattern is beautiful! By any chance, do you remember where you purchased your glider? I love the fleur de lis all over it.

    What color gray did you use for the wall color? Also it looks as if you painted the ceiling gray too. Is this correct? Also what white paint did you use? I am horrible at decorating so trying to copy ur look. Thanks!
