A nautical themed nursery for our first baby, a boy. As soon as we knew our baby was a boy, I started shopping for all nautical themed stuff. I had in mind this beautiful big toybox and make it a window seat at the same time! It was all white and I painted the beach landscape on it. My husband installed and painted the wainscoating, built and installed a long shelf on the opposite wall facing the crib and it is wonderful for displaying Logan's toys, books and mementos. He also made the boat bookcase and customized the dresser to make it a changing table-dresser combo. I hope this room inspires you!
Our love for the ocean and boats!

I love everything about the nursery, it's hard to pick...but if I have to, I would say I could not live without the chandelier, the plantation shutters, the changing table, the bookcase and the toybox!!
Start designing early in your pregnancy or as soon as you know the gender. I made a binder with tabs and I printed out ideas, prices and made a budget.
