Baby Keith's Unique Nursery
(Lebanon, OR, Oregon USA)
Baby Keith's unique nursery with homemade baby crib made from hardwoods including maple, oak, and black walnut woods that dad dovetailed.
Our baby, Keith's, unique nursery has been decorated on a tight budget. Since my husband is very talented and creative, we combined our loves of different outdoor things with our decorating goals for our boy's room.
My husband is an arborist and loves trees while I am a horse person also with a great love of nature and animals. As you can see from the photos, our personality traits are evident in the nursery décor.

: There are many amazing natural features in Keith's nursery but the crib is outstanding. Is this a family piece? A
: My husband built the baby's crib himself using an assortment of hardwoods including maple, oak, and black walnut woods that he dovetailed together. As far as handed down, family pieces; the dresser was my baby dresser that I used 28 years ago.Q
: Did your talented arborist husband also paint the nursery wall tree mural
with the cute baby forest animals? A
: He did hand paint the tree mural PLUS he made the sponges that he used to sponge on the leaves himself as well as the stencil pattern that we used to paint the rocking horse border. Q
:The room has a very homey, personalized feel to it that usually comes from using decorative items that have special meaning to mom and dad. Are there any items that were yours as a child other than the dresser that Keith will also use and enjoy? A
: The rocking horses, baby mobiles, stuffed animals and other baby things were mostly ours that we had in our rooms during our childhoods and the nursery rocking chair was my mother's. Q
: I love the pretty, blue wall hanging over the crib with the baby's name on it. Did you make the crib quilt yourself or did you have it professionally made?A
: The blanket that we hung above the crib was a gift that was handmade by a friend. From the webmaster:
