We are getting close to this baby being born. As in ridiculously close. We're at 37 1/2 weeks at this point, and that fact is actually starting to freak me out for the most part. So distract myself from that, I thought I'd share a few pictures from our sweet nugget's nursery. It's not really Pinterest worthy, but I love how it turned out. His room is my safe haven at the moment--it's honestly currently my favorite room in the house to hang out in.
I decided before we even knew this baby was a boy that I wanted to do a woodland theme for his room. We painted the walls a soft neutral gray, (after trying out 5 sample swatches of colors I ended up hating), and I actually adore the color. Mike told me afterwards that he wanted to paint the rest of our house in the same color, so I think he's on board. Anyway, without further ado, here is our minimalist woodland nursery!
I made this rug from a tutorial you can find over at We Lived Happily Ever After. It's not perfect by any means, but I kind of love it and stayed up way too late one night in a fever to get it finished.
The pictures I painted using inspiration off of Pinterest. How did anyone come up with ideas before Pinterest? They're not perfect, but I really enjoyed making them.
Every kid needs a sheep skin and a rocking teddy, am I right?
The frames were brand new from Pottery Barn but scored at a garage sale. The prints were freebie printables, also off Pinterest that I just had printed as 8 x 10s at Walgreens. You can find "The Mountains are Calling" one here, and the "Going to the Woods" one here. The feathers you can find here, and there are actually several different color options.
The pillow was a DIY project, and the quilt is actually a prayer quilt, made by some very sweet ladies at a friend's church. This kid already has so many people loving him and praying for him already!
Can I just take a minute to brag on our crib? My husband actually built it, and I could not love it more. He decided pretty early on that he wanted to build the crib from scratch, and while I had the hardest time being patient during construction, it makes me swoon. I love the minimalistic design, the rustic finish, and most of all, that he built this for our boy. If you want to make your wife fall in love all over again, build your baby a crib. Just saying. ;)
A bucket of friends. The Beanie Babies are actually mine from growing up (vintage makes them sort of cool/hipster, right?) and the stuffed lion was Mike's favorite toy growing up.
He has a few clothes to get his wardrobe started. But mainly I just wanted to show you his closet cube organizer. Mike and I actually built it ourselves. (He may have done all the actual construction work, but I helped with design/held pieces in place for him to put it together, so I'm still letting myself feel proud.)
The quilt my mother-in-law made for him. It could not go more perfectly! We love it and can't wait for our little nugget to love it, too!
So that's our nursery! We continue to pray that our sweet boy will be home safe and sound to use it in no time.
