As I sit here at 41 weeks pregnant, I figured what better than to give you all a tour of our little man's nursery!
We wanted something very neutral with a mix of modern and vintage. The room is super tiny so we kept everything pretty light except for the dark blue carpet. The carpet, armoire, dresser and curtains are all from ikea; Tom made the tall shelf with the lamp and Tom painted the green shelf that my grandpa (my mom's father that passed away when I was 1.5) made me when I was a baby.
You'll notice that there is a futon in the room but no crib - we are co-sleeping with a sidecar crib so the crib is in our room next to our bed and the futon has nowhere else to go so we kept it in the nursery in case we need the extra bed for guests besides the one in our guest bedroom.
So take a look and sorry for the crummy pictures but I took them in the morning and the light was pretty terrible but I didn't want to wait hehe!
|Shelf my Poppy made for me that we painted emerald green (also the color of our dining room).|
|Tom made the picture frames for the prints since they were kind of an awkward size.|
|We put the changing pad on top of the dresser and the shelf to the right is the one Tom made.|
|One of my roommates and good friends from college actually MADE the stuffed monkey! The lamp is a wedding gift from our little man's godparents and is perfect for the room!|
|The ladder looking thing the quilt is hanging on is actually the fourth side to our crib that we took off for our sidecar crib.|
|I love math so the abacus was my idea and the John Deer truck is Tom's when he was a kid.|
|The metal milk carton is from a little antique store in Vermont that I pass every time I go to my midwife.|
