Stone’s Vintage Bicycle Inspired Nursery

Want to see a unique but adorable vintage bicycle inspired nursery that catches your eye and draws you in? Just check out baby Stone’s amazing room his mama, Liz, and her hubby put together. This nursery that contains all refinished family-owned furniture is brought together with touches of bicycle themed wall art, decorative accents, and an AMAZING pallet Stone’s daddy made just for him.

How did you decide what theme or style you wanted for the room?

With our first son, Jett, we had a gender neutral room; yellow and gray. I wanted to go the gender neutral route again with baby number two. However, I didn’t want to repeat yellow and gray, so I decided to go with orange and gray for the color scheme. My husband has a passion for cycling, so I thought it would be perfect to bring that passion into the nursery and do a vintage bicycle theme.

What are the main colors?

Orange and gray

How did you bring it all together? Inspiration boards, Pinterest, all in your head?

I was first inspired by some things I saw on Pinterest and in bicycle shops. I shared my vision with my husband, because he would be the one who would create my vision to life. We are a great team for projects like this. I have the vision and he executes.

Where did you find the key elements and fun details?

We tried to use things that we owned or were received as hand-me-downs. My husband took his old bike apart and used the wheel and gears to create a cool mobile. He spray-painted the gears to match color scheme. He put a pedal on the wall so we could use it like a hook to hang the diaper hanger, and the bike reflector so we can hang towels on it. The pallet he got from the paint store where we got the paint for the room. It was something the store just had laying around and gave it to my husband for free. He took the pallet apart to make the jagged look and then painted the bicycle himself on there. He bought the letters for the baby’s name from Hobby Lobby and then screwed them on to the pallet.

Other smaller items were from an antique store and a bicycle shop.

My husband did the whole nursery with the help of our family while I was resting in the hospital with the baby in one night basically. I was pretty shocked when I came home because I didn’t know he was doing this.

How did you keep your room budget-friendly?

We used what we had in our home already, like my husband’s old bike. And the furniture was furniture that was in the family for years that my husband refinished when we were getting things ready for our oldest son’s nursery.

What do you love most about the room?

That it is unique and personal for our son. There is a lot of meaning and history in that one room. But my favorite is the pallet on the wall. My husband came up with that idea all himself - no help from Pinterest.

What advice would you give to other mamas about how to make their dream room a reality?

Find a theme that you can be excited about. Share that with others, and you can create a perfect nursery for your little one. You don’t need a ton of things to make it perfect. Having just one focal point can make the room whole.
