Dads, moms, NASCAR fans, virtually all car enthusiasts will love this vintage Route 66 baby nursery theme! When I showed these baby boy nursery pictures to my husband he said that he would be more than happy to have a room decorated just like it!


I have no doubt that he is serious considering how crazy he is for old cars and rusty old signs and stuff.

I would never agree to a bedroom like this but it is a dad's dream room for a son.

vintage car decor for your son's nursery room.


This is not the first time that he has suggested decorating our room with a collection of souvenirs and memorabilia that his family bought at roadside stands and service stations way back in the day. I confess that Tonya's baby boy nursery pictures have made the idea more appealing.

She and I share the view that a room for baby shouldn't look as if it popped out of a box nor should the design be too, too "themed", especially not a vintage nursery.

It's possible to get the look that you want without having a custom baby bedding set specially made. Tonya knew when she saw the Aiden Cocalo Couture crib set that it was exactly what she wanted.

The bedding helped her choose the wall paint color and inspired her to design the beadboard and trim similar to a project that she saw in a Lowe's Creative Ideas catalog. My husband dreads the sight of that catalog. Does yours have the same opinion?

The treasures on the shelf as well as the vintage road signs included in the gallery wall arrangement were found over a period of time. Every piece is so unique that it would be impossible to find everything at one time!

The eclectic blend of vintage memorabilia, road signs and colors are what make this baby boy's Route 66 baby nursery theme ROCK. That was the actual word the hubs used awhile ago in voicing his opinion, not decor. I didn't tell y'all at first because I wanted him to sound more sophisticated (read: less juvenile) until you knew him a little better.

In the spirit of keeping things from becoming too theme-y, a sock monkey that coordinates well with the retro atmosphere of the room, waits for a snuggle in the rocking chair surrounded by a rust and antique white houndstooth pattern throw blanket.

I hope that Unique Baby Gear Ideas' visitors have enjoyed taking a tour down memory lane with us via Tonya's nursery pictures and that you will visit her blog, Love of Family and Home to see even more pictures of her son's room as well as her latest projects.

R66
by: Krys

Love, love your son's nursery! My grandson that's due next month, is also going to have his room decorated in route 66. The room's painted w/a R66 border. We're using brown bedding. At her baby shower she got some signs & an awesome lamp. Other than that, we haven't found anything. Hobby Lobby is the only place we've been able to find stuff at. That's just signs basically. Any helpful tips where to look online our go? We'd be grateful. Enjoy!

Thanks,
Krys

I found the wall furnishings at Hobby Lobby. Inspired by this post, I went ahead and got some of them for my son's room today.

The store

I would like to know the name of the store where the OP found her decorations. I was about to give up on decorating my son's room like this one until I read that she found stuff in one location!

Please post!

Route 66
by: Anonymous

Saw this picture early today while surfing the web. This is exactly the look I am going for with my son's room. I actually took one look at this sight today and one thing from the room stood out to me, the Route 66 sign with the license plates behind it. I thought it was cool and was going to try to make one myself with real license plates.

Decided to go to a local store tonight to get started on the room and low and behold I found that exact picture. I brought my husband with me to have him help pick out his favorite thing from the "car" section of the store. We bought several things.

Came home and went back to this picture to show my husband where I had seen this picture earlier today. After looking around at the photos some more I realized that all the decor in the room I had just seen tonight and several of the other pieces I also purchased tonight as well.

I found it very funny this comment under one of the photos, "The treasures on the shelf as well as the vintage road signs included in the gallery wall arrangement were found over a period of time. Every piece is so unique that it would be impossible to find everything at one time!"

I actually saw everything in ONE spot tonight at the SAME store and I bought almost ALL of the SAME things!
