So…I am letting the news out early again and of course the designer in me is totally wanting to start my designing daydreams for a new nursery. We are expecting our 3rd baby this November. Right now we have 2 boys and are really hoping for a little chicky! Now we certainly would be smitten with a 3rd boy, but the girly-girl in me is ready for a little pink.
Last time I announced my pregnancy on Project Nursery, I rolled out with a nursery design for a baby girl and within a few weeks those design ideas were quickly replaced with my little dude’s nest. So this time I am kickin’ it off with a boy inspired nursery board. Since this could be boy #3, budget friendly items are a must but I couldn’t resist throwing in one little splurge (see #5). With our household quickly losing square footage, the two boys will be bunking up and the newbie will be getting his/her own space. This is what we have in mind for a boy…(And no worries, I’ll be sharing some girly ideas in a few weeks!)
1. Window Panel Inspiration – Full Moon Dot in Tangerine by Amy Butler

2. Baby Mod Modena 3-in-1 fixed side crib in Cool Grey – Walmart.com $249.00
Why I picked this: I am totally loving grey for nurseries…to find this modern painted crib in this great finish is a steal!
3. Flokati Wool Area Rug in Slate – Home Decorators $159.00
Why I picked this: I LOVE flokati rugs in nurseries…it is such a fun visual and tactile texture for your space, plus the babies love to crawl on it.
4. Industrial Rolling Side Table – Urban Outfitters $169.00
Why I picked this: Having a small room, I want a piece that didn’t look to heavy visually. Plus, I think it is a fun interesting piece that will grow with your kiddo.

Why I picked this: Ummm….I LOVE this lamp, so stylized and simply modern all while adding a touch of whimsy.

7. DIY Chevron Stripe Wall Paint Detail – $30.00 average cost of a gallon of paint
