A Project For
Having a farming and ranching background on both sides of the family, we pulled a collection items from numerous family members to create this western themed room for our little cowboy.
I wanted to create a western a nursery that would grow with my son. I pulled inspiration from the many sentimental family items that I already had in my home, including my dad's leather baby belt, my great-grandparents longhorns that hung over the fireplace at their farmhouse, my husband's grandad's coatrack, and so on....

Chair - Storytime glider by BEST

Everything sentimental and the large "J" because I searched high and low for it in order to complete my vision.
I took the two of the pics above the changing table at my fathers ranch and the other is a pic of the sign at my husbands family's farm in Texas.
DON'T SETTLE. If you don't find what you want keep looking. As far as bedding is concerned, I recommend getting a custom set. The cost is comparable to store bought sets and it makes your child's room and bed different from everyone else. Plus you can get exactly what you envision.
