Lincoln's Light and Bright Nursery

Lincoln's nursery is one of my favorite rooms in our home. I spend so much time in there, I guess it should be. I love how light and bright and airy this room feels. It is warm and inviting, and as I sit and rock Lincoln in the comfortable glider, I love to take in all the fun, bright details of his room. The contents of this room are the perfect blend of old and new bringing back wonderful memories of time gone by. I have rocked all five of my baby boys in the glider, spending many sleepless nights holding, feeding, and dreaming about what was to come. We've put each one to bed in the crib, quietly tip toeing out of the room in hopes of a peaceful nights sleep. I love that this furniture has stood the test of time and made it through five boys.

To make the nursery extra special, I added many DIY projects. As I worked on each one, I excitedly anticipated the arrival of the new baby boy who would complete our family. I painted the walls Light French Gray by Sherwin Williams and painted the trim white. I sewed the quilt with organic cotton that I selected from Birch Fabrics. A wonderful friend embroidered Lincoln's initials on a solid white square that perfectly completed his quilt. I borrowed my Dad's scroll saw and hand cut each letter out of birch wood for Lincoln's round name sign. I added chicken wire to the back of an open frame, creating a fun place to hang pictures and memories of our sweet boy. I made the colorful mobile out of paint chip samples from a local paint shop. I enlisted an etsy shop owner to create the "There is No BUDDY like a Brother" print. The perfect addition to the room of a baby boy with four older brothers. I made the curtains and crib skirt from fabric I purchased at Carousel Designs, for Jack's nursery four years ago. I am so happy with how Lincoln's nursery turned out, and I hope my son will enjoy it as much as I do.

I love floating book shelves filled with board books, they add so much color to the room.


This night light from Target has been a must have item for the nursery. It puts off the perfect amount of light to see to feed and change Lincoln during the night, without waking him too much. 

The button "L" art was made by my Mom, Lincoln's Grandma.
