The Nursery that Started it All

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?
