hudson’s nursery details: part II

Today’s post rounds out the tour of Hudson’s nursery. If you’re getting caught up, you can see more here and here.

The animal prints are from Berkley Illustration on Etsy and are framed in Ikea ribba frames. They were one of the first things I chose for the room. Once I decided on them, Zach got me a couple for various holidays. I was showing them to my team at school, when one of my colleagues realized that she and her husband had been giving one as a gift. She ended up getting the staff to sign it as part of our baby shower gift- such a thoughtful idea!

035We got the bed and dresser at a moving sale- they are Stanley Young America brand. Seriously, the only thing I don’t like about this bed is the fact that we might not be able to find another one if we ever have another peanut sharing this space. For real, if you have one of these beds you want to sell me, let me know.


I love the woven texture on the headboard that adds an interesting masculine edge to it, and the light that’s hidden underneath the molding will be perfect for bedtime reading.

030There are two drawers on either side that are the perfect place to stash toys.

067I made the quilt for Hudson’s first Christmas present. I’ll share more details later, but that thing was definitely a labor of love.

068The bigger sham is the Navy Color Frame Standard Sham from Serena and Lily. The smaller one was a birthday gift for Hudson from my dad and his wife- it is the FILL’ER UP Large Applique Monogram Pillow Cover (12X16) by Calicodaisy Handmade on Etsy.

066The bookends are the Menagerie Bookends from Serena and Lily, which were a Christmas present from my dad and his wife. Are you sensing a theme here? Instead of requesting clothes or toys (which we can find at yard sales and can be outgrown) for holidays, we’ve tried to stick with things that Hudson will have for the long haul. We’ll see how long we can get away with this for…

027The rocking chair was mine when I was little. It was used in our living room, so the blue velvet worked at the time. I love how well it works in the room. The vintage Boy Scout backpack was a $3 yard sale find. Of course, no little boy room would be complete without everyone’s favorite mascot watching over him. #wolfpacknation

And there you have it- the scoop on acute little Angle’s humble abode. Hope you’ve enjoyed the tour!

hudson’s room details: part I

Now that you’ve seen a general overview of Hudson’s room, I’ll break things down a little bit. Ready for a photo bombardment? Ok, go:

034The bookcase was made by my great-grandfather. He was a master woodworker, and most people on my dad’s side of the family have pieces of his displayed in their homes. My dad wasn’t using this anymore (he says it was more of a quick, functional piece as opposed to the more artistic things that were his signature), and we happily took it off his hands.  I love that we were able to bring in several family items to Hudson’s room- it helps personalize things a little bit.

I got a bunch of the green metal locker baskets at a yard sale a while back, and was so excited to use them in Hudson’s room. Most of them are stored in his closet for now, but this one fit perfectly on the shelf and was the perfect place to store little by essentials.

053The Donald Duck bank belonged to my gandfather, and the sweet cowboy boots were Zach’s when he was little (apparently he wore them all the time). My mother-in-law recently gave them to us, and I sort of felt I like I won the lottery. I am in love with those little guys! The duck and the boots made perfect bookends for some extra-special books (yes, the title of the one on the end is I Love You, Stinky Face. It’s one of my favorites- total Angle family humor!). The circle cards on the ring are from my shower, and we use them almost every night as we’re putting Hudson to bed.


The embroidered alphabet was in my nursery as a baby (my aunt originally made it for my cousin, so it’s made the rounds through our family). The mat and frame used to be lavender (along with everything else in my room), which I remedied with a little spraypaint.014The bumper is from Pottery Barn Kids via Craigslist. My original plan was to skip the bumper altogether because most of what I found seemed to be too “themey”. I loved that this one was boyish while not competing with the other elements in the room.


The chair is the Pottery Barn Spencer chair (we got it from the Mitchell Gold+Bob Williams outlet). Yes, white chair. Baby room. So far, so good. The drapes are Pottery Barn Kids Sawyer drapes via Ebay. Lamp from Bed, Bath, and Beyond (from our wedding registry). The paper crane mobile was made by the staff at our school as part of our baby shower. The cranes are made out of book pages. We love it!

050The laundry basket is from Pottery Barn via Craigslist. Hudson loves it- that boy takes his laundry duty pretty seriously. The pouf was a clearance find from Target a while ago, but they brought it back!

015The campaign dresser was a Craigslist find, and I was able to pay the girl I bought it from a little extra to paint it for me (we were in between houses at the time, so she also held it forever- very thankful for that). The green was a risky choice for my neutral-loving ways, but I love how it makes it a little more fun. The panda was a gift from my mother-in-law (she got it at a yard sale we went to together, but I think it’s from World Market). The globe lamp was a $3 yard sale find, and it’s one of the things people always seem to point out. The vintage truck was a gift from a friend from a yard sale we went to together. The books below it were both birthday gifts for Hudson, and they are favorites of ours (Little Blue Truck books).


Part II coming soon!
