Back up, don’t get too excited with this title! This nursery is definitely not for me, my baby days are over…
well, having my own baby days are over, my days of snuggling other people’s cute new little ones are just beginning!
If you follow me on instagram you know I have a new sweet nephew in my life. He is almost 2 weeks old and he is such a doll. Thankfully he lives just down the street from us, so I can go inhale his sweet baby head whenever I want…and then pass him back when he does his business and is less than sweet smelling if you catch my drift :)
My sister in law asked me for a bit of help with his nursery since they had a dark office with some old hand me down furniture to work with. We painted the room a pale buttery yellow color to lighten it up and got to work on the furniture.
Sorry I have no before photos, I know I took some but I searched and searched and can’t seem to find them on my computer. So just imagine dark brown, banged up furniture, with 50 years worth of scratches…you get the picture.
My sister in law wanted a really bright and colorful room with a cute woodland creature theme. This was really fun for me because she wanted to go all out with the theme and I never did a big theme with my kids nurseries.
I used white paint to ground the bright drawers and they added this fun card catalog looking hardware so they could stay organized.
We also gave this little nightstand a little lift too. Much brighter than my normal all white everything, and so fun!
I’ll be posting the cute mural I painted in here soon too, so stay tuned!
Oh and you can check out the nautical themed baby shower my mom and I threw here, wow that seems so long ago – can’t believe he is finally here!
PS I’m participating in a fun Thanksgiving tour with some of my favorite bloggers this week so make sure to check back Thursday for my Thanksgiving Mantel and check out all the other fab projects.
