This post is a little bit late, but I wanted to post about our nursery!
With baby #2, we chose to find out the gender because we a) didn’t have time to do a dream nursery and b) we didn’t have our home with Baby #1. Drew’s nursery was already a butter yellow and we just kept it that way and decided to decorate around it. We didn’t do much, but enough to make it his. With Blake’s room, we wanted a true nursery.
I searched Pinterest and finally found what I loved. Rob had other ideas. The room is the smallest of our four bedrooms, so I wanted to keep it light and clean. Rob wanted dark and “masculine”. He painted his plan as a surprise….and then he repainted 🙂
Here was the inspiration:
I thought maybe it was too intricate, but Rob was game, so we went for it!
I LOVE IT! We have had some furniture challenges in the small room, but I think it’s definitely functional. Finding the perfect chair was proving difficult –
too big, not comfortable, too expensive, etc. I finally found the perfect one – in my moms basement. It used to be my Granny’s chair – it is crazy green underneath the blankets. But it’s small, has an ottoman, rocks and swivels!
I would love to show you the closet, but it’s a little bit ridiculous at this point. Anyone who knows me knows that I was obsessed with clothes for Drew. Ya, well now they (along with some from our nephew and some borrowed items from a friend) are EXPLODING from the closet! The clothing reuse was probably one of our biggest savings with having another boy!
I am super happy with how it turned out! My husband is a painting/straight line wonder! It will definitely be hard to ever paint over this one 🙂
