Franklin’s Rustic Woodland Nursery

We didn’t find out the gender of our baby (it’s a boy!) which meant I wasn’t able to do anything for his room ahead of time. I could have done a more gender neutral theme, but I really wanted two separate looks depending on what we had, so I waited. And finally, after about six months, it is complete!

Since my husband is an arborist, I chose a rustic woodland theme for Franklin’s room to honor this part of our lives. So, here it is! And I have included the sources for everything below. I hope you enjoy!

There are a couple of little things I would like to add when I come across them, but that’s just it.. it takes patience to find the right pieces!



  1. I just LOVE it!!! I never did get our nursery blogged… and it has changed so many times since then! Oops! We stuck to gender neutral (boy/girl twins), but I’m so looking forward to going all out on a boy room and a girl room when we separate them. I love how personal and meaningful this room is to your family, and to think you did the bulk with a newborn… wow!

    • Thank you, thank you, Katie! Hahaha that is how I was with my first two babies! Whoops! I also haven’t even gotten my daughter’s current room blogged. I suppose I should get on that! So Appreciate your kind words!

  2. It is absolutely perfect! I love all the DIY touches…especially the wood wall and the hanging shelves. It is such a great nursery, and will transition so well to a little boys room. I love how you got everything in all different places…I do that too.

    • That was a main goal of mine! I wanted a nursery that didn’t have to be completely re-done later down the road as he got older. I appreciate your kind words!

  3. Wow!!! This turned out absolutely adorably! <3<3<3

  4. Such a beautiful space! I’m definitely pinning a few of these ideas. Thanks for sharing!

  5. Love how you did this!! It looks so cozy for a boy or girl!

  7. Oooooh my goodness that room is ADORABLE. I love the woodland look and that accent wall is gorgeous. Y’all did SUCH a good job!

  8. Love everything!! Shelves and those curtains!! Do you know if they still have them on way fair? I tried searching everywhere on their site with no luck. Or what they are called I love them!

    • Hi Kenzie! Yes, I just searched again for them and they are called Swiss Cross Curtain Panels and they come with a set of two. They ARE sheer, so if you want them to be darker, I suggest putting cheap blackout panels behind them. That is what I did!

  9. Oh wow this is beautiful!! You did an amazing job. I was trying to pick one thing to mention, but I love it all!!
    Thanks for sharing at #MMBH. I’ve pinned to our MMBH board. :)

  10. Thank you for sharing the set of signs you purchased from me!!! I absolutely love the nursery, adorable!! I just discovered this & was beyond ecstatic:)

    Can you tell me the paint color name you used on the walls?

  12. So many fun touches in his nursery! I have boy girl twins that have a loosely themed woodland room going on, also. I’m dying to know about that bench custom made from California. Do you have a source? Was it a friend, or a specific shop? I would love to know!

  13. I love this nursery! I would love to make the shelves for our little guy’s nursery. Do you have DIY instructions? Thanks!!!
