remember way back when we teased you with the inspiration board for baby f-bomb’s vintage-modern music themed nursery? well we’ve been hard at work turning that bad boy into a realty ever since, and we are so excited today to finally reveal the full real-life nursery tour.

the reading corner is one of our favorite parts of baby smith’s room. we painted ikea spice racks to hold our favorite childhood books and cozied up a moroccan pouf with a sheepskin rug, but our favorite DIY is this genuine 1946 westinghouse radio. we scored a broken one on ebay for $29, sprayed it baby yellow to match the room, and added gold striping tape to stay true to the radio’s original style.

we always think gallery walls are a great way to work in meaningful pieces. for smith’s we hung vinyl records painted in the room’s color palette, his dad’s acoustic guitar, artifacts from his parents’ favorite music (jackson 5 for mom, phish for dad), and the very best part – an ad from a 1954 michigan newspaper advertising smith’s great grandfather’s band playing at sophie’s tavern every friday & saturday night.

to fancy up this cube storage unit, we used faux leather drawers from target to hide some baby supplies, and stacked bobo the dinosaur atop of gold books leftover from smith’s parents’ wedding centerpieces. not to be forgotten are the totally rad custom name blocks and guitar teether from one of our favorite etsy sellers, little sapling toys.

as soon as we found out baby f-bomb would be a boy, we started dreaming up his perfect nursery. something that would feel cohesive without being too themey, retro without feeling antique, and cool without feeling decidedly un-babyish. after spotting a vintage wood, mint, and brass 1950′s stereo cabinet on a shopping trip one day, we knew that would serve as the inspiration for our baby boy room. and just like that, a color palette and moodboard for this f’in music themed nursery were born. stay tuned for the full f-bomb nursery reveal soon!

1. RETRO PENDANT LAMP

2. FRAMED ALBUM ART
we are framing some of our favorite retro album covers as part of a gallery wall over smith’s crib – starting, naturally, with this orange jackson 5 beauty

3. ROCKING CHAIR

4. MOROCCAN LEATHER POUF

5. TOSS PILLOW

6. GUITAR HANGER
along with the framed album covers, we’re also hanging our acoustic guitar in the baby’s room – looks great and gives easy access to play baby f-bomb some jams!

7. WOOD & LUCITE CRIB
we love the mid-century shape combined with modern lucite on this crib

8. BRASS SIDE TABLE

9. PAINTED VINYL RECORDS
because no f-bombs & cupcakes project would be complete without a little DIY, we are also painting thrifted vinyl records in our color palette to create an installation in smith’s gallery wall

10. DINOSAUR BOOK END

his baby isn’t due for another 2 months, but he is already the proud owner of LOTS of books! we plan to keep them organized with this adorable faux leather bookend by zuny

11. MID-CENTURY DRESSER/CHANGING TABLE
we love choosing pieces that can grow with baby, and purchasing a dresser (we don’t hate on craigslist for a vintage-looking find like this!) that can be used as a changing table is a great way to do that. in a tiny nursery this is also a great way to stash some baby supplies in the drawers below

as decorators on a budget, z gallerie is one of our top shops for chic decor that doesn’t leave us thousands of dollars in debt. but, like most twenty-somethings, we are decorators often operating on an extremely tight budget that makes z gallerie pieces a bit of an f’in splurge.

enter our latest, easy breezy diy: recreating z gallerie’s gilded bird’s nest placemats with a little help from ikea & our ever-present stock of metallic spray paint. to recreate the look for yourself, all you’ll need are ikea’s SNÅR placemats and a bottle of gold (or silver!) spray paint.

remember that easy breezy part? we’re serious. spray paint as many of these little suckers gold as you’d like (note: it may take a few coats to make sure you thoroughly painted the mats), and bam! you’ve got some gilded, modern placemats that will elevate the shit out of your table setting without anyone guessing they’re an ikea hack.
