The Red Tractor Nursery

After we lost Sawyer, I never planned to change his bedroom.  It would be a baby nursery shrine and I didn't really want anyone in there touching anything since it was ready for Sawyer to come home and sleep.  However, after a few months of being pregnant again, I felt the exact opposite.  I had to change everything.  The room had off white walls and a zoo theme.  I needed a change.  I needed to remember that this baby was a different baby and needed his own room and own decor.  I moved the furniture, decided on a new theme, and got to work painting walls.

I become quickly engulfed with his new red tractor nursery theme.  My husband works at Equipment Technologies, which produces shiny red tractor sprayers.  Therefore, the tractors had to be red- no John Deere Green in this house.

I really love the way it turned out.

I'm waiting for Mark to raise the crib bed this weekend- we used it with Delaney so it was dropped.  The adorable decal is from New Wave Signs from etsy.  My sweet sister-in-law sent us this super soft blanket with his name stitched on it and I can't wait to wrap him up in it.  I'm sorry the rug is wrinkled and off centered and YES I will get outlet covers before I put a baby in there.

The book shelves are spice racks from IKEA (Thank you, Pinterest).  At $3.99 each, we couldn't build shelves for cheaper.  I slapped a coat of red acrylic paint on them and hung them up.  I found the tractor blueprint on zulily and it is my favorite piece in the room.

I used this blanket as my color inspiration- I wanted all of the colors in the blanket to be present in the room.  It is super soft and really well made.  I found it on etsy from First Crush Designs.

The upholstery on my old garage sale glider was pretty beat up, so rather than repairing it, I bought a new blanket and pillow.  I NEEDED the pillow because of the red tractor.  It is also from etsy, of course- the shop is Polka Dot Apple, and she has a ton of super cute designs.

Mark brought this home from work, since it was difficult for me to find tractor "sprayer" toys and decals.  Not everyone wants a pesticide spraying machine sticker on their baby's walls, but I love incorporating what Mark does into the baby's room.

And now...all I need is a baby and the room will be complete.  We have three weeks and counting and I am definitely counting...


  1. Love your nursery! Adorable! What a unique and meaningful theme!

  2. Love everything about this nursery!

  3. If you have more than five acres and plan on doing some plowing, hauling, heavier mowing and adding any attachments then diesel tractor is probably more suitable than gasoline powered tractor.
