This was before the days of Pinterest- back in the time when you had to actually read a blog and flip through a Pottery Barn Kids catalog to prepare for your baby coming! Some of you may recognize this tree painted on the nursery wall- copied right out of aforementioned catalog, circa 2007. I already told you my husband was uber-creative- he painted the whole thing, freehand!
There are definitely things I would change if I did this room all over again, but I love, love, LOVE seeing these pictures. I took these right before we turned this room into a big boy room. We needed the crib for our baby girl who was on her way.
This room: the sweet little lamp, the poorly hung valance, the well painted tree, was the background of our life. The life that included that sweet haircut-needing toddler dumping out puzzle piece after puzzle piece, having ear infection after ear infection, requesting lullabye after lullabye. You know how it is. Beauty has a purpose.
Thanks for reading.
Up next… that baby girl’s room? Or the big boy room? Or maybe a tour of some other rooms in the old house?
