Sharing my sweet baby number three’s nursery today…
Books are probably my favorite thing to decorate with. You’ll see I use them in most rooms I do. It’s an easy way to add color that’s not matchy-matchy and they just make a room feel alive- not like a showroom house, like a real home where people read and learn and live!
We DIYed the pelmets and hung Ikea curtains with blackout liners behind them. It’s been the perfect solution for those big windows and arches over the windows. This room gets DARK during the day.
The song 10,000 Reasons, by Matt Redman, was really special to us around the time I was pregnant with Will. It felt like the perfect thing for over his crib. And I wanted it to be a reminder for me when those inevitable early mornings and sleepless nights came… “whatever may pass and whatever lies before me, let me be singing…”
The ship painting below I found in a little antique store in downtown Houston. It was painted by the dealer’s father and there’s a little story about him taped to the back of the canvas! The Lego W was made by Will’s big cousin.
I removed the other more useful but not so pretty items for the pictures- like the monitor, the sound machine (those things are heaven-sent!!), the diaper genie, and the multitude of pacifiers everywhere, but of course we have those things too. Below, you can find a list of more resources.
