Nursery Paint Colors

With S in his big boy room and out of the nursery once again (he gets downgraded to toddler status when we have guests, poor guy), said nursery is calling for its new occupant. And baby E, who is now seven months old, is well and truly ready for her own bedroom, just as we are well and truly ready to have our bedroom back to ourselves – I’m losing count of the number of times I’ve realized at lunch time that my pants are on inside out because I… View Post

Big Boy Room Reveal

Big Boy Room Reveal

This post has been a long time coming, but here is the Big Boy Room reveal – finally! (If you’d like more info on sources and the budgets, check out the breakdown here.)

Who, by the way, is due today. I’m scheduling this to post ahead of time, so maybe she’ll even be an outside baby by the time you read this! (Edit: She’s not. Bah.) Anyway, if I’d had space, I’d have used all of these, but as it was, these were the ones that got… View Post

Art for Boys’ Rooms

In putting together a new bedroom for our Little Man, along with a nursery for our baby girl, I’ve come across a ton of fun artwork. Obviously, I only had four walls in each room to work with, but check out the ones that got away for the big boy room (I’ll be back with more girly options soon)… {Amsterdam Canal Boats print by lauraamiss on Etsy} {Personalized Robot Alphabet Print 8×10 by AppleBlossomPrint on Etsy} {DIY Hand Print Canvases via Cheap Chic Nursery} {ABC Rock Print 11×14 at Land… View Post
