Wednesday (Thursday) Wants: Woodland Nursery

Sorry for the late post – I really have to get used to this Chinese time difference!  So bear with me  . . . and speaking of bears . . .

I based this weeks Wednesday Wants on a woodland nursery.  Being around the panda bears and in the beautiful Bi Feng Xia Gorge area just inspired me to be all woodsy!  See the treasury on our etsy shop (and why not buy one of our t-shirts while you’re there?  Like the US Forest Service onesie for example *wink*).

Try painting a large tree tree above the crib and hanging the leaf mobile on our treasury from the ceiling.

Use this potterybarnkids.com picture for inspiration (the birch shelves are no longer available - bummer)

Add bird houses on the wall for decoration and turn some of the “branches” into shelves by painting shelves in the same color of paint or getting natural wood shelves.

Inspiration photo (collect branches from the woods and mount them to the wall over the tree branches you painted), Could be used for extra hooks as well!

Finish the other walls with an owl clock and woodland friend themed alphabet poster.  Frame some baby photos with twig frames and hang them around as well!

Lay the green grass blanket on the floor as a rug and strategically place the rustic wood table and toadstool “growing” out of the grass.  Don’t forget to give your kiddos an activity for the room with these awesome salvaged twig crayons!

Keep your forest-loving kiddo cozy with this awesome woodland themed blanket and a matching owl pillow.  A fox can keep them company as a lovie (I’m sure you recognize this guy!  We are in LOVE with every creature that sleepyking makes!).

Add some much needed hanging and shelf space with the tree book shelf.  Keep books tidy with these two cute bear cub book ends and add the squirrel, and maybe a deer, to keep them company (strategically place the vintage figurines around the room).  And what’s a forest without a garden gnome??  Maybe he can go by the crib or the table.  Don’t forget some woodland themed wool toys!
