Four years ago we renovated a storage room in the upstairs of our house into a nursery for Jack. Here is what we had to work with. Think paneling on the walls, ugly stained tile ceiling, concrete floor, a door leading to nowhere…
After a lot of work we turned it into a nursery, and through the years I’ve been changing it up every now and then. Because that’s what I do. You understand.
As we are waiting for our little guy in China, I’ve had the itch to make the room a little more boy-friendly. It was Violet’s room when she was a baby, and she is now mostly sharing a room with Avery. So I’ve been doing a little bit of puttering… The daybed in the room is an antique crib that I picked up at a yardsale. When our little guy comes home, we will probably put an actual crib in the room for him. A handmade branch arrow that I made (tutorial coming soon) and a watercolor I painted… This room was an addition built onto the house before we moved in, so the random window over the dresser looks into Jack’s room. I bought some white Chinese lanterns at Michael’s, spray-painted them different shades of blue, and hung them by tacks in the ceiling. A watercolor I created for the room. I have a similar print available here.We are getting more and more excited about our littlest joining our family! Next Spring we will likely be bringing him home!
