The question du jour seems to be, “Is the nursery ready???”
I’m pleased to finally be able to say, “Yes!”
Or maybe I should be honest and say, “Pretty much.”
I have not been able to find a bumper that I love. The problem here is that I couldn’t just find a ready-made crib set that I loved. I wanted something more modern and that didn’t have modes of transportation or animals all over it. Evidently that’s a hard thing to find when it comes to boy bedding.
As for furniture, we re-used Arle’s crib, rocker, and ottoman. The bookcase, changing table, and side-table were all found on the most productive flea market excursion EVER. Bethany and I both came home with major First Friday loot on our latest adventure down to the West Bottoms.
In order to give you the best view of the mostly-finished product, Bethany brought her fancy-schmancy camera over to take pics of Boyd’s new digs. She’s too good to me.
I love how it all came together.
The prints above the crib are from the calendar Trav and I had back in 2004. They’re advertisements from the London Underground and we’ve held onto them all these years just waiting for the perfect place for them.
The large red “B” came from Stuff in Brookside here in Kansas City. The adorable “I’ve loved you from the start” print was a gift from our sweet friends, Laura and Eric.
The car print above the changing table is from this Etsy shop. I put it on my Christmas list and my awesome bro-in-law came through with it. Thanks, B.
