Our Home Tour: Peace. Love. Baby Cayden’s Room1:00:00 AM
Welcome to my baby’s room, please come in, kick off your shoes and stay a while . . .
Our home is a rental home (hence the builder beige walls), it has 5 bedrooms and 2 1/2 baths. We’ve lived here now for almost 3.5 months and finally I am beginning to feel settled. I’ve decided to begin a “My Home Tour” series. This tour will begin with my darling, 10 month old Cayden’s room. His room has evolved from a “nook” area in our master bedroom back home, up north, into his very own room here in the South.
The decor of this room is what I like to call a “geometric jungle animal” theme, I have a hard time committing to just one thing, and I’m not really into matchy-matchy theme rooms. So we began with his crib bedding that I purchased at Overstock.com. I wasn't in love with it, but I chose this set because I wanted something that coordinated well with our bedding, so the colors were perfect! Brown, gold, a creamy beige and I added a few pops of baby blue to break up the monotony of the earth tones. The tab top curtains are hung by upholstery tacks, not because I’m too cheap to buy a rod, I’m just too lazy to put the rod up, lol. The rocking horse was handed down from our 6 year old. (I'm continuously tweaking, even as I was taking pictures, I was moving things around).
I love this display. Collages of Cayde’s first few months and one of my daughter and I while I was pregnant with him are displayed over the changing table.
His dresser was bought at Burlington Coat Factory for $99, it’s made by Bassett, and it is as solid as they come, it takes quite a few people to move it. I eagle-eyed this thing in the stores for month’s while it sat on Clearance, until they dropped it to a price that I was willing to pay for it. It was worth.every.penny! Did you peep the Red Sox hat? Bostonians through and through!
In an attempt to start my new year’s resolution of being more green, I repurposed some cardboard boxes with receiving blankets to make decorative storage boxes to fit in the dresser’s cabinet.
The bottom bins were purchased at Family Dollar, 3 for $5!!!
This cabinet houses wash cloths, extra blankets and his books.
This canvas was purchased at Babies R Us and was a major splurge of $29.99 or something like that, my hubby insisted that we get it.
I’m sure you’ve seen these before, Ikea square mirrors, gotta love these things, they're so versatile, they go perfectly with his bedding theme and they’re CHEAP!
I purchased his convertible crib at Target and I actually like it a lot, it’s sleek and sturdy, too bad the babe won’t sleep in it!
Geometric shelves display his first stuffed animals, football and piggy bank (up high to keep his older siblings from “borrowing” his money) :)
My Goodwill table. This table was purchased for $4.99, I had planned to paint it, but I decided to “try it out” in the baby’s room and figured it worked as is.
I also like how the round drawer pulls echo the style of the drawer pulls on his dresser.
I love this photo collage of my then 1-month old little angel. The pattern and colors of the crib bedding remind me of a giraffe, that's how I ended up incorporating the jungle animals.
It’s a little weathered and worn, but I like it. I also repurposed a lap pad as a drawer liner.
