My son Cash's Vintage Music Baby Nursery was inspired by an idea I had one day when I saw my husband's guitars sitting in the office.

What brand and color of paint did you use?

I can't remember the exact names of the paint colors.

What bedding set did you use? Where did you buy it?

The baby crib bumper is from Pottery Barn and the bedskirt was handmade by my mom.

Tell us about your window treatments, lighting, rugs, wall decor and accessories. Where did you buy them - were any handmade?

There are a lot of hand made/ do-it-yourself ideas in the nursery.

The wall decor is made up of a bunch of albums that we bought for next to nothing from an estate sale. We added the Johnny Cash one in the middle at the top.

We made the wall letters by spraying plain wooden ones red and then mounting them on tea stained song book sheets - my mom's idea!

My mom came up with the idea for the window valance which we made from a shelf with the back broken off. We painted it red, added old records and attached sheet music material which we also tea stained to match the backing of the wall letters.

The lamp was a plain black one originally. We painted parts of it, added some fringe and transformed it into a vintage music lamp!

The only detail left to be added is a big red tin star above the bed.

Did you do the entire nursery on your own or did someone help you? Who? What did they do?

I had a lot of help from my mom!

What do you love most about your little one's finished room?

I love that it's a boy's room after having so much pink frilly around me for so long. It all came together perfectly in the end.

Your nursery has inspired me for my little boy. I would love to find the same bumper you had but have been unsuccessful. I do have to ask, where did you find the tin for the surrounding wall??? Way clever idea!!
