My boy's nursery

Since May is the month for my babies, I thought I would share my babies' nurseries.  Their rooms are some of my favorite in our house. 

Our son, Tyson, just turned 3 so now his nursery is a distant memory.  It's been turned into a big boy room with things he's picked out for himself.   Cue the tears for this mama. 

I spent so much time planning for his nursery and it fulfilled everything I wanted for this room at the time.

We knew we were having a boy and I knew I wanted to have black furniture. To tone down the black, I went with a light sky blue, Icy by Sherwin Williams. I also chose to do what I now know is board and batten trim on the walls.

The side table is from Ikea, bookshelf from Target, crib from JCPenney, crib bedding from Pottery Barn Kids and chair/ottoman are Shermag. 

Other than the looks of it, I have always hated that chair.  It is not the most comfortable for rocking babies or nursing or anything else.  I wanted an upholstered chair and ottoman, not a glider.  I kept that darn chair through two babies because the uber comfortable chairs (like Best and PBK) are rather pricey.  There is a reason they're pricey! 

Tyson's nursery was also my husband's first time doing any kind of trim carpentry.  He had never done anything like this before, but he rocked it!  We designed the board and batten together and he also had his first try at crown molding.  The whole room turned out exactly like I hoped.

This large armoire was opposite the crib and held all kinds of extra baby stuff.  Blankets, towels, burp cloths, extra crib sheets and changing pad covers.

I ordered his name decal from an Etsy seller, but her shop is now closed.

Even after his crib was converted to a toddler bed and now a full size bed, the decal remained on the wall.  I just took it down a few months ago. 

Dresser/changing table across from the windows.  The dresser is also from JCPenney.

These prints from Etsy seller NellaDesigns are one of my favorite things in his room.  I was able to keep those in the big boy room transition!

Thanks for letting me share!
