Harry Potter Nursery

Guysss! I am so excited to finally reveal my Harry Potter Nursery for baby Logan on the way! I am 37 weeks today, so only about 3 weeks left until he’s here and we are so ready for him to arrive! Ever since we found out it was a boy I knew I wanted to do a Harry Potter inspired nursery theme. I didn’t want it to be too over-the-top Harry Potter so I toned it down with more neutral colors/blues (my favorite!) and added a vintage touch. Just warning you, this blog post is very picture heavy! Scroll along to see all the details, including where things came from to help inspire you to make your own nursery 🙂

Logan’s name was one of the most daunting tasks of this nursery. I created the letters all by hand! It took me probably a month to complete because it was so tedious and I could only work on it for so long at a time. Check out this blog post for a tutorial on how I made them.

Looking in from the hallway…I just love it so much! I often just sit in the glider and look around at all my hard work.

Made floating shelves out of the Harry Potter books! I used Umbra Conceal Floating Shelves to make them which are awesome because you don’t damage the books at all! I needed a creative way to place our video monitor, instead of mounting on the wall, and this was the perfect solution. The top shelf has the Golden Snitch, second shelf has a Cornish Pixie, and I made flying keys that are hanging from the ceiling! The keys are from Etsy and I made the wings by printing a wing shape on vellum paper and cutting them out.

The blue table is a nightstand from Ikea (Vettre), Harry Potter trunk is what the box set of books came in, the Owl is a sound machine we got as a gift, and the thing to the left of the owl is our AngelCare baby monitor.

I love our custom book storage area! I bought the blue wire baskets from Hobby Lobby. I created the liners to the baskets using Duck Canvas from Joann. The rod the baskets are hanging from are made from pipes from Lowe’s! I did something similar in our 1/2 bath as well. Making things from pipes is fun!

The wire basket hanging thing was one of the first things I bought for the nursery (from Hobby Lobby)! I thought it would be perfect to go with a Harry Potter nursery because it kind of reminded me of things that you might find at a train station and looked kind of vintage. In the wire baskets I have the 3 books from the Hogwarts Library set, Harry Potter stamps my husband gave to me in my Christmas stocking a few years ago, a letter addressed to Harry, Harry Potter alphabet cards, and my Godric Gryffindor collectors card that I got from my Chocolate Frog.

The shelf is also from Hobby Lobby (love that store!). We visited Harry Potter world last year and I am so glad I kept the packaging from my Chocolate Frog and Every Flavor Beans because they came in handy for decorating! The Ollivanders wand box is also from our trip (I kept the wand inside). The little lantern is from the store At Home, mini Hogwarts Express is from Amazon, the cork letters were from the Michael’s dollar bin that I bought forever ago, and the glasses and owl were a gift.

This is one of my favorite things in the nursery…it just adds a nice little Harry Potter detail! For those of you that don’t know… Lumos = creates light on wand tip & Nox = light off  🙂  The cover is from Etsy.

The lamp (from Hobby Lobby) kind of reminds me of a lit up wand and Fluffy (from the Universal Studios store who actually makes snoring noises) is guarding the “Sorcerers Stone” enclosed in the trunk (also from Hobby Lobby haha).

Curtains are from Overstock, they are blackout curtains and I thought they looked like a fun addition to the nursery. Can maybe make a stretch saying the squiggles are wand movements 😛 The glider was passed down to me from my sister and the green actually works well with the room. The Hogwarts Express print is from DreamMachinePrints on Etsy.

I bought this mirror at Ikea forever ago and it was hanging up in our condo. My Father-in-law accidentally scratched the back of the mirror when he was hanging it which made a big black spot right in the middle of the mirror. It was a happy accident because then I knew exactly what to do with the Head Boy pin that came off the diaper cake my mom made. Perfect little addition to cover up the mistake!

This is another favorite of mine in the room! I got the birdcage from the At Home store, the owl light from Amazon, and the plant hook /chain is also from Amazon. The owl turns on and becomes an awesome nightlight for the nursery! Logan will have his own little owl just like Harry Potter… I think we need to give him a name!

I made the Mommy’s Little Muggle onesie using iron on transfer sheets that you print out. I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out the letters before ironing them on. I also made the mini taggie crinkle blanket for entertainment during diaper changes! Sewing is my latest hobby (just got a machine for Christmas!).

This amazing quilt was made by my best friend’s mom! I bought a bunch of fat quarters off of Spoon Flower in prints I loved for her to put together. 3 of them have Harry Potter things on them. The green squares have the Deathly Hallows symbol, the turquoise ones have random Harry Potter symbols, and the grey ones have glasses with a lightning bolt on them! The rest of the squares either have owls or random patterns on them.

I was so excited to see Pottery Barn came out with a new line of bedding that included lightning bolt sheets…perfect for my Harry Potter nursery!! The owl pillow is from At Home and the little owl blanket was a gift (Carter’s brand).

The owl frame and the 3 blue/grey frames came from At Home. I created the print “I solemnly swear that I am up to no good” that is inside the owl frame and the 9 3/4 print. The Quidditch and lightning bolt (made from spell words) prints are from Etsy. Under the Quidditch print is a metal envelope (from Target) containing a Hogwarts acceptance letter w/ envelope it came in and Hogwarts Express ticket (from the Wish app). The metal owl hanging on the right is holding his pacifiers and pacifier clips (from At Home). I love the owl clock, it has a cute little moon pendulum on it! And Hedwig (was a gift) is sitting on top of his diaper storage! And yes, those are cloth diapers! We plan to start using them after he grows out of size 1 diapers.

The nursery furniture is the Eco Chic line from Babies R Us! I hope you love my Harry Potter nursery as much as I do!

  1. Absolutely love all the little details! Would you mind sharing how you did the letters? We just found out we are expecting a boy and I’ve changed my idea on the nursery theme to HP! I’d rather make the letters than buy them and yours look fantastic!

    1. Hi Mary Beth! Glad you love all the details! I’ve been meaning to make a short tutorial on how I did the letters. I think I’ll make that my next to do when I have time (a little hard to do these days with a one month old). Good luck making your own Harry Potter nursery! Check back soon for the blog post!

      1. Thank you so much! And perfect timing! I was about to wing it 🙂 I just started painting so maybe I can get to making his name next! Hope things are going well with your little one.

  2. I absolutely adore this nursery! I am wanting to do a HP inspired nursery when we have a baby! I love the way you kept it modern but tied in the HP theme!!! I am curious to know how many fat quarters you purchased for this quilt?

    1. Thank you! I got 10 fat quarters. I purchased them from Spoonflower when they had their half off fat quarters sale last year.

  3. Love the HP nursery. My son and daughter-in-law are expecting their second baby boy in February and they are doing a HP nursery. I love the owl light can you tell me how it is powered? Is it corded or battery operated? Thanks for the nursery post it gave me lots of ideas since I’m not from the HP generation!

    1. Hi Kim! The owl light has a cord and is plugged in. We have it connected to an outlet that we can use with a switch. We love it for late night runs into the nursery!
