Cowboy Style Nursery
Vintage Wild West Lone Star Western Cowboy Style Nursery Theme in Burgundy, Red and Brown
I knew that my son would have a cowboy style nursery theme from the moment I learned I was having a baby boy. I am not a person that spends a lot of time decorating but I do know that the baby bed is the focal point of the nursery, so I wanted to create something out of the ordinary to draw attention to the crib.
The first thing that we did was to take two faux suede curtain panels to design the crib's teepee canopy. Then we made the wall cornice to support the crib canopy.
To make the support, we took a semicircle that we cut out of wood and then nailed the curtain panels to it.

We added fringe to the teepee and painted small Indian symbols on the fabric for decorations. To give it the full teepee look we attached five dowel rods to the top to look like teepee poles and then painted them to match the teepee.
The bumper pad is Pottery Barn Kids patchwork star in burgundy. I bought striped fabric that closely matched it to make a simple dust ruffle.
The cowboy style nursery chandelier was found at an antique store but needed shades. I found the red metal shades chandelier shades at Lowes in the lighting department. I had enough striped fabric left over from the crib skirt to make a matching cord cover for the mini-chandelier.
The red tin wall art that you see in the picture behind the chandelier was found at a craft show. We framed the tin with cedar then painted the frame black. At the left of the picture you can see part of a shutter next to the window. We also made that ourselves from four cedar 1x4s.
In the same area of the photo if you look closely you can also see a portion of the curtain. I took a euro sham and folded it in half then put the end of the fabric of the sham through a western napkin ring to attach it to a hook that holds the curtains up. I used three shams to create our cowboy style nursery window treatments.
The faux cowhide pillow that is sitting in the glider and the red and white canvas storage box that holds extra baby blankets on the other side of the baby's cowboy crib were purchased from Target. The old western cowboy picture
on the other side of the bed was another antique store find. The floor coat rack is used to display more western decor and with the vintage wall decoration the group makes a lovely arrangement of cowboy style nursery decorations.
I love my baby boy's wild western nursery
and hope that Unique Baby Gear Ideas
' visitors will as well. I feel like the decor will grow with him and he will enjoy the homemade items that were made to decorate his room with such love for many years.
