Nico’s Nursery


I have been wanting to share these photos for awhile now, but had been holding off because I wanted Nico’s name to be a surprise until his arrival.  Zack and I worked tirelessly on this nursery for a few weekends in a row to get those wall decals perfect and to make sure everything came together with the finishing touches.  We purchased these dressers when we first moved to NYC, and we saved them and used them in the guest bedroom when we moved to Brooklyn.  Rather than buy new dressers for the nursery, we figured these were the perfect color for the panda and monkey themed nursery we were planning.  We have already spent many sleepless nights rocking Nico in the glider, and have spent many hours in this room for his diaper and wardrobe changes.  He is currently sleeping in the bassinet in our room, but when he is older, we will eventually move him to his crib.  We hope Nico will grow to love his nursery as much as we do!











Dressers: Gothic Cabinet Craft / Little Castle Swivel Glider: Target / Little Castle Gliding Ottoman: Target / Window Panels: Sweet JoJo Designs / Book Shelf: Target – similar / Crib: Babyletto / Panda Bank: Urban Outfitters / Panda Wall Decals: Etsy – Decal Lab / Monkey Wall Decals: Etsy – Simple Shapes / Wooden Letters: DIY (post to come soon) materials from Michaels / Panda Rug: Uncommon Goods / Green Rug: Sweet JoJo Deisgns

Today is Zack’s first day back to work, and it’s my first day at home alone with my little man.  It’s definitely a lot of work to be on your own, and I applaud all single parents for being strong enough to do this!  I should probably be sleeping right now (sleep when the baby sleeps right?), but I wanted to take advantage of his little nap by getting out this blog post today.

We had a great weekend with my sister and her boyfriend in town as well as my in-laws.  My sister cooked us up a phenomenal meal, and we spent the two days hanging out, taking a little walk around the neighborhood, and snuggling our little monkey.  Nico is a lucky boy to have so much love and family around him, and I couldn’t ask for a better support system.

Hope you all have a great week!

  3. Hello,

    This room is gorgeous!
    How did you make the Wooden letters, and have it colored like that with the Pandas on it?
    I really love it!!

    • Thank you! I do really love the glider. The room actually just got a rehaul, because we now need to fit TWO cribs in there! I didn’t want to get rid of the chair…but we couldn’t fit two cribs AND the chair in the room…so the chair is now in my living room, because I couldn’t give it up! 🙂 Too many days and nights spent in there! I’m sure there are more comfortable chairs out there, but not for the price and I loved the design. And it is comfy enough for me! 🙂 Are you having a baby soon?

      • Having my first in February! Very excited but a little overwhelmed by all the decisions that need to be made!

        Most of the gliders that i think look good aren’t sold in stores so its hard to know if they are worth it unless there are reviews/recommendations. I hate the idea of spending 1200+ on an Restoration Hardware glider, but i also hate the idea of wasting $ on a chair that may not be comfortable. Thanks for your opinion! It really helps! Also, congrats on your next bundle of joy!!! How exciting!!!

      • Oh I totally know the feeling! There are so many things to do and so many things to buy! Who knew such a little tiny human could need SO many things! Good luck with the rest of your prep and planning. Happy to help and answer any other questions you have! I know it can be overwhelming. Congrats to you! 🙂 And thank you! It should be any day now for our next lil guy to arrive!

    • Hi Maria!!! The bamboo are more just different shades of green rather than grey. It’s hard to tell with the lighting, but the lines on the one stalk match the color of the other stalk if that makes sense! Let me know if you have more questions! 🙂 XO

      • Thank you. What color are the walls? I love the way your room came out and I’m planning on doing something similar for my twin boys. Definitely the Panda theme but my cribs are gray.

      • Your room looks great. I definitely want to do the Panda theme in my twins Nursery. What color are the walls?

      • Thank you! Sorry I am just now seeing this, I don’t know how I missed it. They are a grayish color with a warmer undertone like a brownish undertone as opposed to bluish.
