THREE HOMEMADE WESTERN WALL SHELVES DECORATED WITH ROPE AND IRON HORSESHOE NAILS

Our baby's American Western Nursery Theme has many pieces of rustic, homemade furniture and decorations that were all made by myself and my uncle.

I believe that you will be as amazed as we were at how much money you can save by making your own nursery furniture and wall decorations.

Western Nursery Wall Décor ideas



When I made the three shelves for the wall, I decorated them by embedding rope on the edge that I then secured using iron horseshoe nails.

Homemade Nursery Lighting for a Baby Boy's Western Nursery


We made the western lamp that you see on top of the night stand using an old cowboy boot filled with rope. We also decorated the top and the bottom of the lamp shade with leather accents.

I handmade wooden planks that you see hanging on the wall. The Longhorns that I added were found at a yard sale but those Brands have been in our family for five generations (NOW 6!).

Creative Western Nursery Wall Border
We used a rope as a border for the entire room on the baseboards and in a circular design just below the ceiling. We also used handmade letters to spell the baby's name "CASH" on the wall above the bed.

Just to the right of the baby's name is an old mirror that was made from an old plow horse harness. That mirror had hung on the wall in my great-grandfather's house since the 1940s.

How much would it cost Unique Baby Gear ideas' visitors to duplicate your western baby nursery ideas?
The total cost of decorating our American Western nursery theme not including the cost of the baby bedding was about $500. That figure includes paint, the wood that we used to build our nursery furniture and the rope. Most of the decorations in the room are either family heirlooms or were handmade.

If anyone has any questions about any of the western themed nursery decorations or furniture, you can email me using the comments form on this page.

DisclaimerMaking my own crib and nursery decor worked well for me but I as well as www.unique-baby-gear-ideas.com should be held harmless from any resulting accidents or injuries resulting from the plans and/or advice.

I love this idea! Could you please send some info on how you made this crib? I really want to try and make one similar to this for my grandson. I have a fundamental knowledge of woodworking, just not sure where to start....

Thanks in advance.

We have recently just had our second child and he is using the crib as well.
If you know woodworking you can build something pretty awesome that will last forever.

Remember to look into federal safety guidelines if you want to try this!

No I don't have the quilt pattern, it was a gift.
The paint was from lowes, and I believe it is sand and dark brown.

To build the crib I didn't have a plan. I bought an old used crib at the flea market and took off all the hardware and just used the same measurements. You do need the bell drill bits. wasn't real difficult if you like the rough look. I would recommend taking off the federal guidelines for crib safety just so you don't miss any safety issues.

Maybe I'm biased because I live in a log cabin, but if I needed a nursery this would be it. Thanks!
