Modern Vintage Nursery

We recently welcomed a new baby into the world.  Meet Luke :)

Luke L Newborn-114

I wanted to wait until he was here and had his photo shoot before I shared his nursery.  It’s been a work in progress for awhile now and we were able to complete it before he arrived.

I knew I didn’t want a specific theme or color scheme for the nursery.  I wanted the room to be something our baby could grow into.  We had a few vintage pieces we wanted to incorporate with the newer modern pieces.  We also enjoyed tackling some DIY projects for the room to keep it personal and affordable.  I made the changing pad cover, the throw pillows and the triangle quilt.  My husband made the window valences and my Dad made the changing pad holder that he attached to the dresser.  Luke also has three other handmade blankets from other loving family members.  He was also gifted a handmade cradle by a family friend.  We keep the cradle in our bedroom but still want to share a photo of it.

Some of my personal favorites in the nursery are the mobile, the wooden sign above the crib, the vintage toys on display and the rug!

Before this room was a nursery, it was really just a room for all of my husband’s music & sports stuff.  We thought it would be cool to keep the record player in the nursery.  This way we can introduce the baby to music early on…and also because we don’t have enough room downstairs for ALL of the record collection.  Might as well store some in the nursery!  We also had to put some of my husband’s guitars away but thought it would be nice to keep one on display in the room.  The only other thing that stayed was the futon.  However, I did get a new cover for it to spruce it up a bit.

    Hi. I absolutely love your nursery! I found this on project nursery when searching for a rug for my sons nursery. This one is exactly what I have been looking for. I clicked on the link for overstock, but I cant tell from the picture if this is the trellis gray or the diamond gray. Would LOVE to know.
    Thank you so much!!!

    I know your father made the changing pad holder but I would LOVE any instructions he could supply so that my baby’s grandpa could also make it. My email is

    Hello, love your classic nursery. I am also planning a nursery for my baby boy due in November. I originally planned to go with BM Classic Gray, but now thinking Revere Peeter. Did you lighten the color any?

    • eatdrinkglam says:

      I did not lighten it at all. I did Revere Pewter through most of the house and I will say that it definitely looks more beige in some rooms than grey. I think it all depends on the lighting and the furniture colors. I highly recommend SW Light French Gray as another option too. I did that in our Master Suite addition (sharing on blog soon) and really liked it.

    Hi there, I love the triangle quilt you made for your son! I found it on Pinterest. I was wondering if you could tell me what the fabric is that’s white with gray spirals. Thanks!! :)
