Eat Drink & Be Mary: Safari Nursery Reveal


Safari Nursery Reveal

FINALLY Cole's nursery is 100% done.  I am so so in love with how it all turned out.  

When we first found out we were pregnant, or if I'm being honest I definitely had a pinterest board going before we even knew, I had a hard time deciding what theme I'd want to go with for a boy's nursery.  And after many, many hours on Pinterest and Etsy I came up with safari.  

To see my original inspiration and plans for the nursery check out THIS POST.  

Once we started buying pieces and putting the room together many of my original ideas changed, but I'm OBSESSED with how it turned out -- and good thing because little man and I spend a lot of time in their together.  

So let's get to it.  Everything I can find links for will be linked at the bottom of this post.  

We were so so blessed to be given TONS of hand me downs from my SIL including this crib that grows into a toddler bed.  Which worked out perfect because boy or girl I knew I wanted a white crib.

Bosphorus Moroccan Trellis Rug (white & grey) | Rugs USA

White & Grey Pom Curtains (similar, similar) | Nate Berkus

Oh Joy! Zebra Print Crib Sheet (similar) | Target

Changing Pad Cover (similar) | Target

Wood "C" | Hobby Lobby

Mirror | Target

Elephant Basket | TJ Maxx

"I Love You" Sign | TJ Maxx

Fun Fact: Cole LOVES laying on this changing pad.  I have no idea what it is.  Even when he was a teeny, tiny newborn he'd just lay and stare usually towards the mirror - odd since it was when he could only see maybe 12 inches away so he couldn't make out anything in the mirror.  Now he still loves laying there squirming, wiggling, kicking and cooing away.

Elephant Poof | Walmart

A comfy rocker/glider was one of the things I wanted most because hello spending A LOT of time in here.  And this chair that my parents got me (and on amazon prime too, winning) is perfection.  It's the perfect grey, comfy - trust me I've spent countless hours in this chair the last 2 months - easy to assemble, and doesn't cost an arm and a leg.  I should mention that Thomas doesn't find it all that comfy but he's 5'11 and is just too tall BUT he doesn't feed the babe so that's a-okay with me.  ;)

I know I said we're 100% done above, but the decor ontop of this dresser I'm not totally sold on.  Mainly the safari box needs to go (I mean it's a gift box for goodness sake), but I don't know what to fill the spot with...suggestions?

9 Cube Organizer | Walmart (painted BEHR Jet Ski)

Confession: My mom and I bought the set of 4 canvases BEFORE we knew Baby T was in fact Cole, but I had just started thinking that I was having a boy.  We found them at Home Goods, and y'all know you never know how long things are going to last there and they were seriously perfect for the safari theme I had been dreaming up.  No worries we made sure we could return them if it ended up being a girl, haha.

Also, the animal hook board is a DIY project that finally completed this nursery.  I found a picture of a similar one on Pinterest and I am in love with how it turned out.  I think I'll throw up a quick how-to post soon on how we ended up doing.  

Boppy Lounger - Amazon
Boppy Cover - Amazon
Hanging Wall Organizer - Walmart
Sound Machine - Hatch Baby (also on Amazon, Target - basically everywhere)
Cool Mist Humidifier - Target

And that's it y'all.  I am so so in love with how this space turned out, and as you can see we love Target and Home Goods, haha.  There were definitely some changes from the original inspiration and how I pictured the set up in my head but that's bound to happen.  And I'm 100% obsessed with the end result.  

What theme did you do your nursery in?  What is your go-to home decor store/website?
