Nursery Sneak Peak

Oct 27, 2011

I have been busy working on some changes in Little Man’s Nursery. Nothing major, we are staying in the crib as long as we can. Just a few “big boy” changes like:

A new rug. You might remember me saying how a white sheepskin rug was a bad idea. I loved it for his newborn nursery but that thing was filthy. Here is its replacement. I was originally going to order the Urban Outfitters Zig-zag rug but it was backordered til Christmas. I like immediate gratification, so thank you Homegoods!
A little more masculine right?

We also added a new storage ottoman. So genius, the top comes off so we can store toys inside. This baby is probably 20 years old. It used to be my parents and I recovered the top. I love the vintage and masculine feel of the wood. And you know I love me an animal print.

And I finally got around to framing my prints, I blogged about HERE. We framed all 6 of these for about $50. I found the frames at Micheals on clearance and used black construction paper as the mat. I will show a final reveal once I hang them, but I am waiting on my Dad to hang them. He is the master picture hanger!

The bear is my favorite print!

And I can’t forget the Dinosaur Sterling picked out to go with it all!

Somebody is very excited about the big boy changes!

Next I plan to restyle his bookshelves and I am working on a painting for over his changing table. I share a final reveal when everything is done!
