Baby Boy’s Nursery Tour

It may have taken us a while to get this done, but I’m happy to say that our nursery for Baby Darroch is officially complete!

This was before…

I’m going to do a few decorating tips for nurseries in a seperate post but, for now, I thought you’d all appreciate a tour!

I love it!
One view – with his cot, changing unit and day-bed!

Just one drawer of his clothes.

Another view.

Some more of his clothes.

Some of his teddies. That seahorse is a cult baby product – apparently it sends them to sleep!

Baby bunting!

His little cot! Which is actually quite massive, considering how small he will be.

His little shoe and towel collection. This shelf was a bargain from eBay. Keep an eye out for this and other tips in another blog post.

The top half of his changing unit, complete with newborn nappies, wipes, cotton wool, Sudocrem, a little push-car, our first card off a wonderful friend and his monitor.
Underneath, we have a collection of blankets and muslin cloths, the all-important maternity pads (lovely…) and breast pads (delightful…) and then a small percentage of our nappy stash (thanks Mum and Dad!) and some baby toiletries.

I love the little gift bags we’ve been given and I think they make lovely decorations!

I hope you like it! There’s one view of the room I haven’t shared, as it reveals his name, which I will save for when he arrives.

I really enjoyed putting this room together, despite how hard it has been to get to this point. We’ve removed woodchip wallpaper (which took days), pulled up old carpets, had the room replastered, endured Soot Gate, where our entire house was black, and cleaned and decorated.

Despite the amount of work we did on the room, we still did it on a budget. I’ll be sharing my tips in another blog post coming soon. It’s applicable to decorating any room really, so hopefully it’s useful.

As for this nursery, there’s just one thing missing…

    That's such a lovely room!!! I see you have pampers nappies & wipes – I'd buy bulk! You won't go wrong & it will save you some pennies! I tried all sorts of wipes before settling with pampers. And huggies nappies? RUBBISH!
    Love the gift bag idea; it's very sweet! I'm getting so excited for you!! Xo

    What an amazing little nursery! Me and the boy are planning ours too, but since we don't live together it doesn't have to be done for a few months. Will definitely be referring to this post and the one before it for advice!

    I hope you'll have many wonderful hours in there with your little baba!

    […] second hand and it was perfect at the time (have a blast from the past at a very old-school nursery tour of his in my old house if you’d like, back when I used my phone for photos), but it was […]
