See how a grey and white themed room can make for a wonderful and calming striped nursery. The elephants are so much fun too!

Hi, I’m Mandy from House of Rose! I’m a boy mom, fountain coke lover, diy wannabe who loves to decorate! Lucky for me I have a dad who can make any Pinterest project a reality! For the last 2 years we’ve been doing project after project including this nursery, my fancy fireplace, and lots more! We are currently adopting our 4th child from the Philippines and I quit my full time job to blog. You can read more about how I did that on a site that my husband and I have called Dollars and Roses. I hope you enjoy my gray and white elephant nursery!
I’ve posted pics of SJ’s nursery before, but not since it’s been completely finished. And not since I”ve learned how to use my Canon T3i better.
When you have 3 boys…trying to come up with another “boy themed” room is not easy.
I’ve done blue. I’ve done green. So I knew I wanted to do something more modern and light for SJ!
Who doesn’t love gray and white stripes? And elephants?
Gray Stripe Color: Benjamin Moore Gray Owl (OC-52)
Thanks to Tonya from Love of Family and HomeI now have this lovely personalized birth announcement sign to match his room!
Most of the furniture in SJ’s room was hand-me-down. That’s what happens when you become baby #3.
This changing table has been through all three of the boys and it’s still going strong! I found those adorable wall elephants on clearance at Hobby Lobby!
This lovely piece of furniture…use to be mine in college. We did a quick little paint job on it and a hardware switch and voila…it’s like new!
All of the bedding was custom made from a family friend. I picked out my fabric on Fabric.com. It is a Michael Miller fabric and I just love the pop of teal!
Again, staying on the “hand-me-down” theme…we have the refurbished bookcase that almost went in the trash. I talked the hubby in to letting me keep it and paint it white. His trash is my treasure.
The chair is my FAVORITEpiece in my entire house. Literally.
It’s from PoshTots…and it’s such a statement piece. Not to mention, comfy!
Another sweet sign made by Love of Family and Home!

Ahhhhh! My heart melts when I read it!
Here is a view from the entrance of his room.
This mirror actually came on a dresser that I found on Craigslist and I had it stored for awhile. I really thought I would never find a use for it.
I added the custom monogram and I think it totally makes the entrance very elegant and welcoming. I can’t remember where exactly I ordered the monogram from, but it was somewhere on etsy.
Do you love or hate the curtains? It was the one piece in the room that my husband was like, “HUH??”He felt like he was being hypnotized. Hehe! I kinda like the extra funky fabric personally.
More elephant love…
…the boys actually like to pretend he’s a horse and ride him.
I also ordered these elephant vinyl prints for $5 on etsy and then put them on picture frames. The background is just wrapping paper!
I will be sad when SJ grows up and wants a “big boy” room. I want to keep this room forever!
