I’ve been wanting to do a tour of the nursery for a while now and finally just took some pictures. It was raining when I took these so the photography is not the best. They could definitely be better, but with a 2.5 week old, this will do. I’m linking up with Andrea to showcase “Kids Rooms.” You’ll get to see Maddox’s nursery, Beckham’s nursery (soon to be big boy room), and the Play room. First of all, here is a picture of our family of FOUR and our newest addition snuggled on a pillow.
I wanted a very calm, neutral room for Maddox. We kept the walls the color we originally painted them and went from there. I scored this white crib on Facebook for $60, so we kept all the furniture white. I need to spray paint the gold owls, white. When the lights are off and the lamp is lit, it is extremely peaceful. Maddox is not sleeping in this room yet, but hopefully just a few more weeks till he’s sleeping through the night, then we’ll move him.
A few things about the room:
LOVE sign – I made the sign myself and had it printed on canvas from Shutterfly.
Tree decals – I found them on Etsy and absolutely love them! I got them HERE.
Crib – Found on Facebook…it’s a Graco crib.
Dresser – From Target
Curtains – These about did me in! I wanted white Blackout curtains. After searching and purchasing/returning two different ones, I made my own. I ordered some white curtains from Target and then bought some blackout fabric from Joanne’s Fabric store. I clipped the two (curtains & blackout fabric) together. Then I cut off the bottom part of the fabric since there was about 2 inches showing, Wah-lah! It’s extremely dark during the day in that room.
Décor – All of the décor (lamps, all the mirrors, owls, yellow polka dot sign, shelves, clock) are from Target.
To the Moon sign – from Hobby Lobby
Child of God – I made this and it’s available in other colors in my SHOP
Next up is Beckham’s room. He’s 2 1/2 and this is our next project. I wanted to do it before the baby came, but it was just too much with getting a nursery ready. I’m super excited about transforming his room into a “big boy” room! But, here is what it looks like as a nursery (minus the rocking chair, which was moved into Maddox’s room).
I’m thinking about selling his crib and dresser/hutch and use the money to buy other furniture (since I’ll replace his bed anyway), but I’m not exactly sure yet. I saw this loft bed with some space underneath, which would be cool for “tent” like activities. I plan to have more toys in his bed room. Right now, all the toys are in the playroom.
Speaking of, here is the playroom. I miss having a room dedicated to an office, but it really is worth the space to house all the toys!
I’d also like to make some changes to this room after having a kid for 2 1/2 years and learning a few things. Storage is key in a playroom. I’d like to get a tall white armoire to house some bins with toys by category. The older kids get, the more nick-knack toys they have that need a bin. Cars, trains, Legos, animals, colors, etc. Too many little pieces that need a storage container. I might move those iron sports signs into Beckham’s big boy room and have the armoire there. Just FYI, we have a 3 bedroom/2 bath house with a study (playroom), dining room, living room, kitchen, and breakfast nook. It seems small when I compare it to others, but honestly, it’s big enough. Hope you enjoyed seeing the areas dedicated to our kids.
