Baby boy K will be here in the next couple of weeks. My family and I are trying to be patient but now that his nursery is complete and I am simply ready to meet our baby boy. I find his room incredibly peaceful and I am drawn to it’s simplicity.
The white crib, drapes and bedding are angelic and pure. They are the Vivian Drape from Ikea. Two 56 X94 drapes come in each $10.00 pack. I used them on the windows but I also used them to create the crib skirt since it was cheaper than buying fabric and sewing my own crib skirt. I simply tucked them under the mattress so I can re-purpose the drapes once he is grown.
The turquoise and grey flags were designed by Amy. She had the guests at my baby shower write well wishes on the back of each flag. I think they add a pop of much-needed color and provide a sentimental touch to his room. The star mirror came from a second hand store and I love that it has both gold and silver. The light is from Home Depot and was under $75.00.
Don’t just love those vintage map letters? That was a gift from my in-laws and really make the room extra special. I added a ruffled table cloth to an existing round table. The lamp was spray painted blue for an added pop of color. The rocking chair has been with me since the beginning! I have rocked, fed, and read to my wonderful boys in that comfy chair so changing the fabric was just difficult for me to fathom. I have loved that chair 8 years ago and continue to love it today. I think the blues and greens in the map letters forgive the added shades of sage and cream.
This dresser came from a local antique store. I wasn’t sure if I was going to keep it original but I have to say that I love the wood and the brass handles. I simply works for this room and adds that vintage feel. The photo display was challenging for me. I like how it turned out but I really stressed out over the layout. Check out the gazelle head– it is my favorite piece on this wall.
