Please come join us. This week we were asked to describe a
room in our house.
We live in a house HGTV would describe as “cozy.” (Read: tiny.) But we are happy here and we like living in such a snugly space. My favorite room has got to be the nursery. For a lot of reasons. First, it is finished. Second, it is super cute. And third, I made it for my sweet baby boy.
My mom made all the bedding for the room. I couldn’t find a bumper set I loved, so we found some receiving blankets that made me all tingly and used them as inspiration.
We found the tulle drape at IKEA and the little clouds go with the airplane theme in the nursery (actually, our entire house has an “airplane theme.”)
We bought this changing table at The Habitat Store downtown and Jason spray painted it. He bought the airplane picture off EBay a few years ago. I love the way it looks in this room.
The first few days Ty was home, I slept in this chair with him in my arms. But we kept trying and it wasn’t long before he was in the crib and I was back in the bed!
The picture frames are still empty. Well, the “Live, Laugh, Love” picture frames have the stock photos that they came with. So they are not technically empty. My mom thinks this is confusing for Ty and he’ll think they are family.
This room is now scattered with toys and baby clothes in real life. But it is still a sweet place to spend time.
