Wynn's Room by Rob and Megan

Before we did many DIY or home improvement projects around our house we completed the nursery for our daughter, Wynn.  This was also before we had a blog, so we thought we would share it because it is our favorite room in the house.


Here is a photo of the room the day we moved in, and at the point we began putting the nursery together it still looked like this a year later.  Rob began by laying Brazillian Koa flooring in the room and in the closet.  We then bought a zebra rug from Overstock for around $60.00.  That's our boy Barkley not looking very happy.  


 Rob then used mdf board to create wainscoting around the room.  He framed out the wainscoting but left it as plain wall inside each "box"   We painted it white and then painted above with Valspar's Woodlawn Silver Brook. We knew we were having a girl but liked the look of blue in her room.  


We ordered a decal with Wynn's name from A Hint of Chic Boutique on Etsy  and a ribbon mobile from Polka Dot Skies on Etsy. Our furniture is by Cocoon and we purchased it through WayFair.
 I framed coordinating scrapbook paper because I couldn't find any artwork that really matched the look that I was going for.
I
 I was able to get a matching bookcase from Target and decorated it with some of the gifts Wynn received at the shower.
Here is the finished room. We got some drapes from Tuesday Morning and added a chenille glider from Babies R US.  I guess I should take an after picture since Wynn is now two and using this room. Just picture books all over the place instead of on the bookshelf.  :)


Thank you for stopping by!

  2. What a sweet room for Wynn! The wainscoting is beautiful and the zebra rug really makes it fun and modern! Decorating a nursery sure has come a long way since the days of Sesame Street and Winnie the Pooh and that's a good thing!

    1. Sharon, thanks again for your sweet comments. We really wanted something that could grow with her and even work when she's off on her own. I didn't want to have to redecorate as she grew up. She has lots of stuffed animals and books everywhere now. :) Megan

  12. I have to tell you, I LOVE seeing rooms for little girls that are neutral like this! Not everything has to be pink and flowered--this is such a breath of fresh air.

    2. Apparently, my memory is going :). I stand by my comment from 4/19/2012 and my only update to my comment is that I can't believe that Rob added that paneling. It is AMAZING. Really well done.
