These are our favorite things


We bought my in-laws house four months before my first son was born.  We had so much fun changing my husband's brother's old room into a nursery.

I love your project. I have to turn my husbands office into the babies room. It has already a world map on the wall, and I just got some nice ideas from your project. Where did you get the crib?

Lauren, so sorry to just now be responding...I'm sure you've figured it out by now, but we have 8ft ceilings as well so the bottom of the mural is trimmed off. I guess we will just have to tell Hank about Antartica. ;)

How tall are your ceilings? Mine are 8' and I really want this mural but I know the dimensions are 8'8" Just wondering if you cut any off the bottom or if your ceilings are taller. Thanks!

They are Ikea's Ribba frame shelves, so much easier than doing custom shelving!
