We finally got the last piece of our nursery (the rocker) this past weekend when the in-laws came into town.
There is no theme for our nursery — neither B nor myself are very into the theme look or a complete baby-fied look. If you know B or myself, or have been to our house, you know it’s just a hodge podge of things that are important to us. Our house also has no theme or rhyme or reason — so why should our baby’s room be any different??
When you first walk into the room, to the right there are these three hooks (Target) which house his diaper bag ( again — I’m a no frills kinda girl – it’s the Fisher Price backpack), the cutest little hooded towel and his carrier.
The changing pad sits on his dresser — we really wanted this to be versatile, so we opted for the dresser over the changing table. I love how his little gallery wall turned out with the shelves for added storage and decoration. Most of the signs were purchased from Hobby Lobby and Target — with the exception of the white one which was framed by my mom, the song quote which was hand lettered by Brooks, and the Aubie which we got from Scarlet and Gold.
We also got his crib from Target — the dresser and crib came from the same line, as well as his teddy bear mobile. Above his crib are vintage maps of the cities nearest and dearest to us: Atlanta, New Orleans, Milwaukee, Birmingham, and we’re still waiting to find a Montgomery one that we like. B’s mom painted the two grey stripes.
And the final part of the nursery is the rocking chair with the bookshelves on either side. The bookshelves house his small collection of books, his burp clothes, and on the top shelf of one (my favorite) two pictures of Sheffield’s namesake with a model of the plane he flew in WWII and a framed phonetic alphabet. B’s parents had the rocker recovered, and it’s so comfortable. I have a feeling Sheffy and I will spend a lot of time in that chair.
Our nursery is far from designer or anything magazine-worthy, but we love it. It’s very much “us” and what we want for Sheffield to grow up in.
