Hello! Since COVID is as bad as ever and we are still stuck at home, I figured it’s about time I give you all a nursery room tour! I still have a few projects I’d like to do in this room (when is any space truly finished?), but for the most part, it is complete.
When I was pregnant and started planning their nursery, I was so bored with most of the gender-neutral nurseries that I was finding on Pinterest. Most are neutral colors and everything but fun. It really bums me out that boy nurseries are especially dull and that most fun colors are labeled as “girly”. My goal was for our boy/girl twin nursery to be anything but neutral! My rainbow babies deserved a fun and vibrant space that made them as happy as they make me.
The first pieces I got (that I kind of designed the nursery around) were these “Lagoon” Babyletto Mini Cribs. I found one on FB marketplace and family gifted us another one to match. I LOVE these cribs and am now a huge advocate for mini cribs. There really isn’t a need for full-size cribs and it just saves so much room, especially if you’re a twin parent and need to fit two cribs in one room.
One of our most used spaces (unfortunately) is our diaper changing station. This rolling cart is the perfect storage for all of our diaper changing and feeding staples. I love that we can repurpose it when the twins get older. I’ll probably use it in our future playroom for craft supplies or other kids activities. I can not recommend this changing pad enough! I love that it sits perfectly on top of any dresser and it can easily be wiped clean (unlike changing pads with fabric covers). This dresser is one of my most sentimental pieces in the nursery because it was actually my mom’s when she was a kid, plus it ties in some mid-century vibes into our nursery. Since our home was built in the 60s I’m trying to incorporate some decor from the era it was built in. Our Diaper pail is the Ubbi, it has a perfect seal and never smells! While it’s a chore to regularly empty it, I’d definitely prefer that over having to take diapers to the garage after every diaper change. Definitely recommend!
Now for the fun stuff, the play area and toy storage! I couldn’t find any toy storage that I loved, so I bought this storage bench on Facebook Marketplace and painted it yellow for a pop of color. I just put toys directly in the shelves but they are the correct size for cube storage if that is something you would want. These pillows are from Target’s Pillowfort collection and are intended for the kids to use while looking at books. The yellow bench perfectly matches this Ruggable rug which is the dream kids room rug! It is machine washable so I can easily clean it if we have any accidents (which we definitely do). The twins also spend so much time playing with their Everearth activity center, another Facebook Marketplace find of mine!
For wall decor, I started out with a gallery wall featuring art from people and artists I love. A lot of these pieces are one of a kind but I will link some sources below this photo…
I absolutely love and will forever treasure this Elton John quote banner. My mom and I worked together on it and it makes me so happy!
On the other side of the nursery, I painted this rainbow mural. It is exactly what the space needed and will serve as a perfect photo backdrop as the twins get older.
