Our first baby boy is due tomorrow (May 5, 2014). This is our DIY teal + grey chevron safari themed nursery!

Design Inspiration

When we first found out we were pregnant, we had a PCH roadtrip scheduled a few weeks later. While we were in Santa Barbara, we made our first baby purchase, which were little paper mache safari animals. I guess that theme stuck! I love chevron, and I'm very much a neutrals gal, so I agreed to a pop of color with the teal, and I love how it turned out! Found lots of inspiration from Pinterest + Project Nursery.
