As most of you know, Baby Boy K is going to be here very soon. Over the past few months I decided to take a bit of a blogging break to prepare for his arrival. The time off has been bittersweet, but it was really good for my soul and my growing baby boy. I have just over a month before this little guy arrives, and I have been working on a bunch of sewing projects as well as planning out his nursery. Christy and Amy have been providing a ton of inspiration and lots of support over the past few months, and I am feeling very blessed and grateful for their friendship.
Here is a sneak peek of some of the items that I have been collecting over the past few months that will be displayed our baby boy’s nursery. I cannot wait to share the final nursery reveal and hear what you all think.
As you can see I have a vintage map theme in mind for the nursery. I found this amazing wooden soda crate from an antique store here in Warrenton. I fell in love and just had to have it. It was reasonably priced and the perfect storage solution for toys and books. Speaking of books, that Better Homes and Gardens book is a special gift from Christy. It has vintage stories and offers an awesome pop of color for this neutral nursery.
The maps are just USGS topographical maps that you can purchase at any outdoor hiking store or even online. I am lucky enough to be married to a cartographer (aka a “map maker”) so I didn’t have to go very far to get these. I love the shades of green and blue that these maps bring into the nursery. The darker “vintage” styled map is actually wrapping paper from Paper Source. They have an amazing collection of wrapping paper which costs $3.95 per sheet. I particular love this piece because of the vintage tea-stained finish. I also found the ABC sheet of wrapping paper and thought it was really cute. It is reminiscent of vintage school art and I plan to have that framed as well. Check out all the cool and inexpensive wrapping paper products that the Paper Source has to offer.
I hope to have a photo wall mixing white, silver and gold frames. I have not purchased all the frames yet but I did find this frame at a sweet baby store. I love the “coming soon” window. Sonograms are just so special. Hard to imagine that back when my mom had me they didn’t do them. It is such a treasure have to this photo.
I do hope to spruce up the baby’s closet, but I had to share this photo of sweet newborn sized clothing. I am so thankful for all my friends and family that have passed down clothes and supplies. This baby is so very lucky, as am I!
I just love this PINK baby sleeping sign that Christy sent me. Even a mom of three boys deserves a bit of pink! What a great gift for any mom!
Thanks for checking out Baby Boy K’s nursery sneak peek!
