The Nursery

I  love this room!
It is definitely my favorite room in the house. 
I think the reason why I love it so much is because I did every single thing in this room by myself! 

First of all here is a before shot of this room when we bought it. 

Plain white walls, scuff marks everywhere and lots of holes were in the wall.
The first step was to paint the walls. 
I painted the whole room with a semi gloss the color of sky blue.
Then I painted stripes in the same color but with a high gloss instead.

Before I started this room I found a picture from Pottery Barn that I used as my inspiration.

The tree was exactly what I wanted for my baby boy's room. 
So I got out my brushes and craft paints and went to town. 

After the walls were done it was time to add all the little details.
I made the curtains, pillows, and growth chart.

 I put up shelves to display a few keepsakes.

For the 4th of July all of the neighboring elementary schools made these firecrackers for the new moms in the hospital. 

This boy loves his room, almost as much as I do :]
