One of the last things I've needed to get done was Abe's nursery. Thankfully, when I designed Willow's nursery two years ago, I kept in mind that it could quickly change to a boy's nursery if needed because of our active homestudy. I wanted it to be girly and fun, but only because of the details and not the "bones" of the room. If you get my drift. With just a few simple changes, her nursery quickly became Abe's.
Here is her nursery. I can't lie, I miss having one room in the house be full on girly. So, here's to hoping a little sister joins this crew one day and we can let her share a room with W!! HA:) (but really, Lord please)
Like I said, a few minor changes, and here's Abe's new dig:

I have dreams of drawing a big mural on that chalkboard wall, but at almost 34 weeks pregnant, I just don't have it in me right now. I'm also hoping to get a new more colorful crib sheet soon.
I also have major dreams of redoing this dresser. I'm thinking white around the edges and re-staining the drawers to look like this. But you guessed it, it's not happening at 34 weeks. Plus, I think I want to wait until we move one day because I'm not sure where this piece might end up, and part of me wants to paint it a fun pop of yellow!
I took this image at my father in laws farm last summer and quickly fell in love with it. I loved the stance of the cows and how this little baby calf just stared me down. So precious. I knew I wanted to print it, but I haven't been able to find a home for it. Until now. I love it in Abe's nursery. When I went to print it, I freaked out because SOMEHOW all my images from that day are gone. Like can't find them anywhere. Thankfully, I had blogged them here (insert crying face emoji because my kids look so little). I knew blowing up an image from the internet would make this print really pixely, so I added a watercolor effect to the print to mask the pixels. It turned out perfect. I printed it at Kinkos as a colored engineer print, so it was pretty cheap! Not the best quality, but you can't tell until you get right up on it. The frame is IKEA.
yeahhhhh, add "paint the outlets" to my todo list.
Still love those weaves from Willow's nursery! And this lamp I redid.
The shelves were just a quick rearrangement of knick knacks. I added an image of us finding out we were having a boy. The letter A was from Canaan's old nursery (his middle name is Allen). Everything else was already in this room or I had from other rooms.
I can't WAIT to wrap him up in that tie-dyed swaddle!!
I bought this sweet elephant for A at an adoption conference I went to earlier this month. And the plant is from Ikea!
It's very minimal, and I'm hoping the crib sheet will add the fun I'm looking for. I REALLY want this crib sheet to tie in the yellow and green from the weaves and cow print.
I do love this calm, bright space. Now, who wants to come draw my mural???:)
