Vintage Circus Nursery

This post is sponsored by Expressions Vinyl. All thoughts and opinions are my own. Also, Expressions Vinyl rocks.

I am very excited to finally share my little guys room with you. I have always love the circus theme for a room and I was finally able to do when I had my little guy Ryder. He is already 2 and yet I have never shared his room before. A few of the elements I have always had and then I recently added a few things that I think completed the room. I wanted the room to have a Vintage Circus vibe and I hope I accomplished that.073

The cute hanging baskets are from Home Goods. The lit up “R” is from an antique mall in Mesa, Arizona.072

I love the posters that are pretty cheap on eBay and the canopy over the crib is a Ikea Hack. I made it a while back but don’t have a tutorial! Sorry!!

I cut out the stars using my Silhouette Cameo Machine. I got this Dark Blue Vinyl from Expressions Vinyl.

Each one is between 10-11″ and I used about 10 stars. If you don’t have a vinyl cutter, you could easily cut these out with an Exacto knife and vinyl.  The stars are just so perfect with the Circus theme. My little guy loves them.

The amazing quilt is from our good friend, the talented Kerri of KB Cute.075



I love this stadium chair! I got it from The Old Brick House, which is a local boutique here in Arizona. I also love the little toy basket that has the cute oversized lion in it. The basket is from Hobby Lobby. The cute little elephant is from another local antique mall, and it was soooo not cute when I got it. I repainted it to fit the style of the room better. 079

The cute changing pad is also from KB Cute. I just love her stuff!077


This locker set is super amazing! I love how the cubby open and I love that there are so many cubbies.086

The crib sheets are also from Kb Cute.082

The little floor runner is from target and it adds just a bit of texture. 083

I love how cute his room turned out. Better yet I feel like he can grow with it because the decor is not too “baby boy” or nursery.

What do you think of his room?

    What a fun theme! Such a great idea to do a circus for a nursery with animals and color and cheerfulness. It turned out really great.

    Can you share the ikea hack for the canopy? I’m wanting to do my wedding circus themed but my husband talked me out of it so now we are doing a circus themed nursery for our boy! Would love an easier way to do the canopy!!
