House Tour: Nursery Details

I put a lot of thought into our son's nursery. I had dreamed about this room for so long, and I wanted it to be perfect! Apparently I am very indecisive (very true), because the final product was nothing like I originally envisioned. I completely changed my tune halfway through my pregnancy and am so glad I did. I really love his nursery and could happily spend all day in that sweet room. 

I wanted it to be a very calming, soothing space, and I think we achieved that. The only real theme I went for was "sweet". Talk about vague, but I wanted light colors and sweet, personal details throughout. We had the room painted a very very pale baby blue. It doesn't show up baby blue in photos and barely shows up that way in person. It's very muted, but that's exactly what we were going for. We chose white furniture with white, silver, and gray accents. Very simple!

The changing table is one of our favorite features in the nursery. Parker built it when he got back from deployment just in time for Preston to be born. He did such a good job!


The three frames hanging above the changing table were my cheap take on Etsy prints. I designed them in Picmonkey.com, printed them at Walgreens, and spray painted three frames I already had on hand. They read Jeremiah 1:5. John 3:16, and Psalm 139:14.


Parker also built this bookshelf, which I love! It's exactly what I was hoping for and was finished just days before Preston entered this world.


Archie is my stuffed gorilla from my childhood. I begged my parents not to get rid of him because I thought he would make such a fun addition to a nursery one day.


I just love the simple little mobile above his crib. It fits the gray/white color scheme, and the elephants are too cute!


His sweet name is hanging above the crib. I ordered the letters off Etsy and painted them.


I love this little airplane lamp. It is actually the only airplane we have in the nursery, but it's an ode to Parker's passion while still keeping with the simple theme I was going for.


This is another favorite corner of the room. We prayed and prayed for that sweet baby, and the Lord certainly delivered!


This chaise lounge was in my home office before the room turned into a nursery. I didn't really think it fit the nursery and still think it's a little too feminine for a boy's nursery, but it's a great place for Parker to sit and talk to me while I feed Preston, so I love it for that reason. It fits the color scheme of the nursery pretty well, and I've come to like having it in there!
