We’ve been working on this one in the background lately, hence the radio silence, and decided it’s finally time to share a bit about it!
Enter, nursery 2.0!!
With all of the ideas together on my idea board, we got to work. First off, we got started on the planked/shiplap wall because we knew it would probably make a big mess in the room. I think we’ll probably write a whole post on this wall, so for now, we won’t get into any details.
I sent this picture to my in laws to show them the nursery progress we were making, and they told us we should just keep the wood grain. I think its a generational thing? Older generations want to keep the grain to show the quality, whereas we just want to paint everything. I had that conversation with my mom once. I’m just generally not a big fan of wood grain unless its on the floors or furniture. What do you think?
I was so excited to do a nursery. I mean, check out our [facebook] birth announcement:
Geez, I kind of miss my long hair. 🙂 Anyways, when we found out we were having a baby I started planning right away. I loved the outdoor/adventure theme because it could easily be for a boy or a girl and I always knew that no matter what gender our baby was that the room was going to incorporate navy blue in it… my favorite color. I always had a blue room growing up, usually navy, sometimes a sky blue on both the walls and ceiling complete with huge white clouds (sorry Dad!). Although, I guess I did go through that Little Mermaid phase at one point…
