Hot Air Balloon Nursery Reveal
I know I have been taking about showing pictures of the nursery for weeks now. For the most part it’s been ready for a while, but to be honest, there are just a couple little tiny things I’m still working on, so I kept putting this off. But I decided that I will never get pictures up if I wait to have everything 100% just how I want it. So… here we are! Step on in, I’ll give you the tour.
This is my favorite room in the whole house.
There are going to be just a couple more pictures in that lovely collage above. We want to put a picture of Baby’s birthfather up, as well as a quote I love. You might recognize that picture of Tasha from my post here. I made the “boy oh boy” wall art as well. I was so pleased with how it turned out! We have pretty much decided on a name for Baby (and no it’s not Lydio haha). But here’s a little clue: it does begin with L :).
I also want to put this printable I made up there somewhere, I just haven’t gotten around to printing it yet. If you like it, feel free to help yourself to a copy :).
We did a little bit of work on that changing table and were quite proud of the final outcome. And that lovely old luggage there…I found that at a garage sale for a couple of bucks months ago. I knew it would come in handy for photo shoots, or in this case for diaper storage. That little monkey fellow was mine when I was a little girl. I LOVED monkeys (still do actually) and collected a whole fleet of stuffed monkeys. It’s been fun to think of Baby Boy enjoying some of my childhood toys.
I’m sure you remember these little beauties from my post here. They are perhaps my favorite thing in the whole room. I’m worked so hard to make them and was so pleased with how they turned out. We kind of based the decorations for the whole room on those hot air balloons.
B is for… balloons, bikes, Blake, baby, boy… I LOVE this little shelf. That little bike with a basket was a table decoration at my wedding reception! And I do love that owl baby with his balloon.
The bunting is a bit washed out in this photo, but we love that big window that lets in so much natural light.
In the corner between the bookshelf and the changing table is the rocking chair that we refinished. Along with another one of the quilt creations that I made specifically to fit the theme of the room. The child is going to have quilts coming out of his ears, I tell you what. It has been SO fun to sew things for Baby. I kind of can’t stop.
Honestly, I don’t know how to make the bright colors NOT look funky on a computer screen. The quilt looks better in real life. Just trust me on this one.
Oh, and Spencie gave me this clock as a Christmas present. Isn’t it sweet? He was so excited to find it.
Well, I think that about concludes our tour. Hopefully the next time you see this room there will be a cute fat baby in there :).
