Finally! I can show you my little grandson’s nursery! It has been months of putting on the finishing touches while we wait, but now we are ready! Now all we need is my grandson to complete the picture…and he will be here any day now!
My daughter wanted the nursery to have a very subtle theme, so she took inspiration from the bedding to use the colors of pale blue and green with chocolate brown and…
…a circle motif! It’s reflected in the lamps, on the walls, in the curtains and even in the little circle rug by the crib! The walls were a labor of love…
First, my daughter painted the walls a pale blue topped by a band of a darker shade. Next, she painted green circles using a stencil that she made herself. Then finally, she added a green stripe to finish it off. The curtains were my contribution to the nursery. We took ready-made tab top drapes, added a band of chocolate on three sides and chocolate tabs, then added buttons covered in green to match the bedding.
My nine-year-old grandson made a special baby boy doggie at Build-a-Bear for his baby brother and arranged this corner of the crib in anticipation of his arrival! He can’t wait to be a big brother!
And my sweet friend Gloria at Happy to Be made this wonderful tassel for the nursery! Isn’t it the perfect match…even down to the circles! I love the baby boy riding on the stork’s back…so cute!
Instead of a changing table, we will use the matching dresser…really a great idea! The crib breaks down into a queen sized bed, too, so he has furniture he can use for a long time. So much better than having to buy all new like we had to do back in the olden days! The picture frames are waiting to be filled once my grandson arrives. Sorry about the dog tail, but…
…they have six dogs, five of whom were rescues, so it’s hard to get a picture without at least part of a dog in it! lol They can’t wait to welcome him into the pack!
Now we are just waiting for the perfect final touch…my little grandson! He should be making his appearance any day now and I am so excited! I have a feeling I will be spending some time sitting in this comfy chair! It has been a long time between grandsons, so I am ready to hold a baby! I will keep you posted! In the meantime, thanks for stopping by!
