The Triplets Owl Nursery

I’ve been wanting to do this post for awhile, and when I saw that Kelly’s Korner was having a link up, Show Your Life – Kids Rooms and Nurseries I knew this was a great motivation to finally get the babies owl nursery on the blog. Unfortunately it’s taken all week to get the room to photographing stage! It’s really hard to keep a tiny triplets nursery tidy. (Who am I kidding, it’s hard for me to keep anything tidy.) Anyway, I’ve just managed to remove the boxes of clothes that don’t fit anymore, mounds of blankets and various boxes of  miscellaneous items. Even still, there’s some things that remain like the storage under the cots. Got to put all the spare nappies somewhere!

So here is the view from the door.  I chose an owl theme, since owls are popular at the moment and a great gender neutral choice to suit both the 2 boys and a girl.

The other side of the room. Another friend made the cute owl mobile on the wall. Most of the owls have been gifts.

 A few details from the room. A friends mother in the US blessed the socks off us by making each triplet a beautiful owl quilt. Another friend blessed us by giving us two cots they had stored. I would have loved three matching cots, but it really wasn’t in the budget. At least they are all white. The sleigh cot was ours previously. I made the bunting for my baby shower. I think it makes the nursery look nice and cheerful.

The cupboard. It’s a bit of a squish to get in one side since there’s a cot in front of it, so I don’t put things we use every day on that side. (Plus it houses wrapping paper, always an awkward one to store!) The other side, is absolutely chockers with clothes. I don’t know what we’ll do as their clothes get bigger!

There’s a simple little picture above the door which is one of my favourite inclusions in the room, for sentimental reasons. It’s a copper picture that my grandparents made me for my 1st birthday. I love that there are three little ducks. Perfection!

I love the floating shelves we bought from IKEA and Bunnings. It’s a great spot to put some special things given to each child.

A closer look at each shelf. Grandma has given all her grandchildren a special teddy bear. They also each have a very special Royal Selangor pewter object. Their money boxes were given by their Great Nana, and the piggy banks by a Great Aunt. They kind of have an over supply of money boxes, there’s more on the other side of the room too! But they are all so cute. Never to early to start saving. They are Accountant’s children after all!

Thanks for taking a peek!
