Calling all Batman fans! This mom created the most adorable Batman Nursery for her son! Even Batman himself would love this nursery! See how Jaimz created this awesome space. Disclosure: this post contains some affiliate links.
“It all started with the name.
A year before my husband and I were married, which is nearly 7 years now, my father passed away. We always knew that when we had our son, we would honor my father’s memory by passing on his name, Bruce.
Shortly after finding out we were having a boy, we had decided upon the first name Grayson and then of course adding the middle name Bruce.
One night, we were just sitting together and said aloud, Grayson Bruce…wow, what a strong sounding name. Then…at the same time…we locked eyes and said very loudly, “BATMAN!” For those of you out there who are comic book fans…you of course would know that Dick Grayson was the original Robin. Who then later becomes Nightwing, but I digress.
Both names so wonderfully give homage to the Batman-verse and we couldn’t help ourselves, we HAD to theme the nursery.
Putting it all together:
It started with the muslin swaddle blanket I stumbled upon on Modern Burlap. I just loved the bat masks on it and the monochromatic look.
Our crib, dresser and rocking chair were gifted to us from grandparents in the family. They allowed me to pick out what I wanted for the room. No matter the theme, I just loved the grey colors and simple design of the furniture.
From there it was just hunting around to find just the right elements for the room. I wanted to keep it simple because, after all, the room is quite small but just right for a nursery I’d say.
I wanted pops of yellow that would really stand out so I turned to Etsy for some of the items. I found the Batman & Robin mask pillow on Etsy and requested a custom print with the yellow chevron.
I then found an iron on decal for the “Even A Superhero Has To Go To Bed” pillow. I loved that the bat mask on the pillow was similar to the mask on the swaddle blanket.
Then when my childhood friend found out about the theme, he gifted me his Batman lunchbox he actually used in school. I remember that thing! It is proudly displayed on one of the floating shelves in the room.
Over several months I’d stumble across little things here and there. Hobby Lobby had the Dark Night wooden art piece that I just HAD to have.
I was equally excited when I found the wall decals of the same bat mask style. (Also on Etsy – Sellers listed below)
While attending a local art fair I met an artist who makes his own screen prints and then sews them into dolls…when I spotted his Batman doll I couldn’t resist and purchased it as a hopeful lovey for our little Grayson. I even found a Batman themed teething toy!
To continue the pops of yellow, I made a minky changing pad cover, spotted the yellow tray table on Amazon, and put together a ribbon mobile (which I have yet to hang). Then we received the most epic custom gift…the Bat Quilt.
A friend of mine made the quilt as a baby shower gift…even top stitched it in a Batman theme using a super fancy Viking sewing machine.
Now, here I am 36 weeks and ready to meet our little man!”
