Please Note:

From 2011-2016, we had an inspiration blog featuring nurseries, baby showers, parties, and portraits that were submitted to us by photographers, designers, and parents. We no longer accept submissions or post new blog content, but we have left the archive here for those who have saved this content, or for new readers looking for inspiration.

Max's Cars and Planes Themed Nursery

Cars and Planes Themed Nursery

With pilots and mechanics in the family, a cars and planes themed nursery was perfect for baby Max, and his mom Deanne put a lot of love into creating for him. Max's dad Brent is a mechanic, which provided a great opportunity to convert mechanic shop items into fun nursery decor. A drip pan was converted into a magnet board, while hubcaps made for great wall decoration. More DIY items can be found in the custom bedding and curtains, sewn with love by Max's grandmother. Deanne also used a cute advice tree that the guests at her baby shower made in the nursery's palette. Everything came together to result in a space that is truly personal to this sweet family. Dana Laymon Photography captured the beautiful photos, and you can see all of the photos submitted over in the full gallery!
