Hudson's Nursery Reveal: A Celestial Space

I promised you a room reveal, and that is what is happening today! This room was a labor of love and patience. It was also a lesson in repurposing. If you have been around here for any length of time, you probably saw Leighton's nursery. It was Peter Pan/Neverland themed, and Nate and I did a lot of crafting, refinishing and building to make it perfect.

You will notice that some of the items from Leighton's nursery have been reused here for Hudson. It worked out that the two rooms ended up with similar colors in their color palette. The base of the rooms are different though. Leighton's was centered around a book. Hudson's is centered around this quilt.

My Nanna is amazing and has made quilts for both of my boys. For Hudson, she did her first ever triangle pattern. It turned our beyond amazing and I can't wait to use it in his pictures. Until then it is just the bright pop of color the chair needed (we did the same thing with Leighton's quilt).

The handmade touches don't stop there. The side table by the chair was made by my Papaw for Leighton's room. It is chunk of tree trunk that he shaped and sanded down smooth. Then Nate stained and sealed it.

The mustard yellow bowl is my mom's handiwork. She has been super into felting and made both boys a bowl for their rooms. This on is holding breastfeeding things for me right now, but it will serve a long life in holding things for this little guy too. Leighton also thinks it makes the perfect hat!

Get the look:

Don't worry, I added my own handmade touches too. Nate about lost his mind helping and watching me make this star garland, but it was worth it. We traced out stars on felt and then cut them out with fabric scissors. If I was on my game I would have gotten the fabric backing that you iron on and then run the felt through my Cricut. Hindsight...

I also tried using iron-on fabric fusing tape to hold the stars together. That didn't work so I tried fabric glue. Again, didn't work. Hot glue came through in the end!


And I about lost it making the vinyl wall cling. Honestly, I am still annoyed with it. It won't stick in a few places and we keep having to smooth it out again. Luckily it is just the bottom of a few letters, not entire letters. It is still super annoying though. We have tried a hair dryer and that hasn't helped long-term. Anyone have any suggestions?

The bed skirt and rail covers are my Nanna's handiwork again. She made everything for Leighton's room too as you can imagine. The fabric has little gold specs in it that make the marble print look like outer space. It is some really, really cool fabric.

Another thing I ended up making was the silver spaceship for the wall. I had seen a light-up one and a few other super expensive versions and I just couldn't justify it. A piece of poster board, an exacto-knife and some paint did the trick! You can see the step-by-step on my Instagram story highlights.


I had seen someone else hang baskets in their nursery instead of doing shelves and I thought it was a great idea! I found these at At Home and then we used 3M Command hooks to hang them. Perfect for holding pacifiers, baby powder and some swaddles. 

All of that is centered over the changing table that Nate built for Leighton's room. When Hudson is out of the diaper phase, we will take the changing table part off and the boy's can use it as a desk (which is what the base really is). 

And that is the room! The picture frames will have pictures of us and Hudson eventually. What do you think? Anyone else go crazy and do DIY/craft projects when you are on a time crunch?

Thank you for stopping in! Less than two weeks to baby!
