Real Western Cowboy Baby Nursery Theme

by Jan

My son has a real western cowboy baby nursery theme! His room is decorated using authentic tools and equipment found on any working ranch or farm. For example there is a pair of gorgeous chaps in the changing area as well as rope and lariats used as wall decor.

The decor is rustic yet very understated, tasteful and in my opinion, fabulous. This room has basically everything we dreamed about for our son's nursery.

Ashley of A Picture Life Photography did an amazing job taking the nursery pictures as well as putting together some wonderful ideas for portraits of Chase and his gorgeous mom and dad that I'm saving till last.

In the old westerns, the first thing we see when riding up to a ranch is a large, wooden gate with the name of the ranch or the family's name with their brand on a sign. A similar display behind this little cowpoke's crib makes a dramatic statement in this western cowboy baby nursery theme.

The blend of western themed decorations, books and toys on display on shelves is brought to life with a pop of red from a bandana draped on the side of a storage bin alongside a photo framed in a cow print frame.

The quote in the original artwork made me smile and wonder how many southern girls have wished upon a star or in an earnest prayer before bedtime that their cowboys came with instructions?

The rusted, metal star and the personalized sign with Chase's name, cowboy boots and a hat on it is too cute!

And..speaking of instructions; do any of you actually know how to rope a calf with one of these? Somehow, I think this little fellow will be learning rope tricks at a very young age if Dad has a say in the matter.

This western nursery also has a soft side.

Ashley does a nice job of showing us the sweet side of the room in her photo of a toy sheep wearing a cowboy hat snuggled in the baby's bed.

Her ideas for a cowboy themed newborn photos and other are what keep me coming back over and over again to A Picture Life Photography Blog

Her choice of colors and textures is spot on. The rustic, twig chair, the cowboy hat and baby Chase napping on a sheepskin rug are masculine enough to make a proud daddy happy with a touch of sweetness for mom.

This picture of Daddy giving his son a kiss brought a joyful tear to my eye. Seeing the love this big, tough cowboy has for his son made my day.

Authentic Western Nursery Decorations
by: Kat

I'm from Texas and my husband is from Kentucky and we are so excited to have found pictures of this room! We didn't have a clue as to how to begin and the stuff that is in the store is so cheesy that we almost changed our minds about decorating in a cowboy theme. Thanks!

Western Nursery Woodworking Project

I would love to include a "ranch gate" similar to the one in these nursery pictures. My husband has woodworking tools and skills but would need instructions for the project. Does anyone know where to find a diagram with instructions for making a gate like this that will be attached to the nursery wall?
