Let Him Rest, Boys Nursery; Guest

30 June 2010

This boys nursery is from Cheri at I am Momma - Hear me Roar!.  It was a recent party link and I simply love it!

Today I'm taking you on a little tour of Baden's room.  Let me first tell you what I was aiming for when I decorated it.  I wanted it to be a really calm, soothing, quiet room when he would sleep well.  I didn't want things to be too bold or too cluttered.  I also tried to make everything I could.  I was worried that since he was my second child that I would never make another thing for him once he was born.  I guess I didn't have to worry about that one.  So, here we go!

When you walk into the room you see the crib.  I made the bumper pads and crib skirt because I couldn't find what I was looking for.  I painted the piece above his crib.  I saw the quote somewhere and really liked it. 

Here's a close-up.

I love leaves and trees.

About a year ago they had the cutest line of pink bird stuff at Target.  Of course there wasn't a blue option, but I copied the look of their birds and carried them throughout the room.

The curtains were clearance table cloths and I added a little blue to the top and brown to the bottom. I backed them with black-out curtains.

The inspiration for the room also comes from this window.  We have this rose bush that climbs up the house in the back and frames his window (courtesy of the original owners because my thumb is NOT that green).  Sometimes there are little birds that perch there.  The flowers just seem to appear out of nowhere in the spring.  They bloomed the day before Baden was born last year.  It seemed like they were waiting for him.

This rocker was originally pink gingham when purchased.  My talented mom my recovered it for me.  I made a little bird pillow to go on it.

Here's the other side of the room.  You know all about the frame (painted with marshmallows) from yesterday's post.  I bought the shelf unfinished and then painted it and added knobs to dress it up a little.

I bought the letter "B" and then decoupaged on some cute birdy scrapbook paper.  Then I antiqued the edges a bit.

That is so adorable!
I especially love the painting, and the saying  on there just makes me want to cuddle a little sleeping baby!
