Navy and White Nautical Nursery


blue and white boys nurseryThis totally cool nautical theme nursery with a pirate feel was designed by Elaine from Our Semi-Homemade Life. The white beadboard is a perfect contrast with the blue and really makes the nursery feel nautical (hubby installed the beadboard). Star Spangled (color 450-7) paint from Pittsburgh Paints is the perfect color of blue painted on the walls. To purchase the five foot white ship vinyl decal click here. The bumper is from PBK.

blue and white nursery
Elaine spray painted the oar and captain’s wheel (purchased at Michaels) with white gloss paint. The dresser used to be dad’s as a child and was painted black to cover the oak.

“It’s a pirates life for me” vinyl decal can be purchased here.
Sweet child size rocker with matching bear and pillow.

What a wonderful, awesome nursery! Thanks to Elaine for sharing her son’s nursery with our readers.

  38. Hiam says:

    Okay, okay. My two cousins want me to look at this theme. My name is Hiam and I love this! I have a son who is going to be an Olympic sailer someday…at least that is my dream since I didn't make it. I think this nautical theme would be fantastic for my son who loves blue and white and will be spending lot of time in the water on a sail boat.

  39. Big12gonewild says:
    November 16, 2009

    Thank you for your inspirational posting Hiam. My son is 7 and wants to be in the Navy so I am going to take a similar design a put a dash of red in it to remind us of America. Some good ol' fashion red, white, and blue.

    Thanks Elaine for your design ideas!

    Loved this nursery. I am also doing a nautical nursery for our baby due in January 2011. I would LOVE to know where she got her mobile from?
    I am having a hard time to find cute boat mobiles. Thanks
