Nate runs as fast as he can to the end of the house to baby bro’s room when we ask about “baby brother’s nursery.” He is also really good at talking about “Christian’s Room.” He is loving the changes to his former playroom. Thank goodness! We scaled back the budget for this nursery project since we went a little crazy with Nate’s room, but it resulted in way more creativity and handmade touches. I love it.
The Chinese lanterns came from some Pinterest inspiration. The “crib” is our play yard with a slipcover on it. It’s made with seersucker and polka dots, two of my favorite things. Hopefully Nate will give up his crib soon, but we are happy to have him sleep for 12 hours a night and are no longer in a rush to get the crib in the nursery. The precious cross was a present from Aunt Carrie Anne.
Okay, I didn’t actually make this cool guy. He was a present. He’s from here.
The wall color is Benjamin Moore Cumulus Cotton. (Had to write it down so I don’t forget when we need touch up paint!)
Trey’s sweet parents rounded up the rocker for us, and the little stool was my grandmothers. Some spray paint, fabric, and upholstery work transformed the somewhat sad little pieces into a perfect seating area for our buddy’s nursery. I made the pillow slipcover and had it monogrammed.
The tag decoration says “Let your light shine.” It was a Christmas present from the husby and I adore it. The lamp is a family heirloom of sorts. My mother gave it to my cousin Julie when she had her first, and now that her youngest has outgrown it, it will live in my children’s nurseries until her children need it for their children.
Before Nate was born, we put a little teddy bear in his room so he would have something from us when brought him home. For Christian it’s the blue elephant. The best part- it can be monogrammed! We will put his birthday on it as soon as we have the date.
This super cool vintage mobile hangs above the rocking chair. It is made of tin and came from Monticello (think Thomas Jefferson, not Florida.) Thanks Bill and Kiki!
All there is to do now is sit back and wait!
