So I've decided instead of waiting to do a room reveal to show you Finn's nursery, I'll show ya bits and pieces here and there. Of course I'll do a full room reveal once everything's done, but I thought you guys might like to see where we're at and progress shots along the way. I already showed you his changing table, so today say hello to his crib.
This was Ryder and Bryce's crib; it just underwent a little makeover. This is what it used to look like. (you can tour Ry's nursery here)
I had our cabinetmaker spray the crib in my go-to color these days--Benjamin Moore Dragon's Breath. I'm seriously going wild with this paint color. The old crib color was nice but I wanted something a little more substantial and dare-I-say "grown up"? I know, sounds ridiculous for a baby's nursery! But I didn't want it too precious in there. Do you know what I mean? With having the pallet ceiling, I felt like I could do a more rustic grown-up style. I think the antique rug really helps tie things together too.
And no, this isn't Bryce's crib;) He's just helping by keeping Finn company.
This is the first mobile any of my boys have had. I made it out of a basket handle. The basket was old and the webbing was coming apart. I really liked the handle part and I thought it'd make a cute mobile. The items dangling from the baker's twine are salt dough ornaments that the boys and I made. There are stars, hearts, and house-shaped ornaments.
This is Finn's view:)
There's not too much left to do in there--that's the good thing about having all boys:) Things to do yet in Finn's nursery:
- Paint and install hanging bookshelf
- Slipcover chair/ottoman
- Replace broken blade on ceiling fan
- Organize closet space
Hope you enjoyed the peek into our little guy's room. More to come soon! Have a great weekend.
