A calming, yet fun room out-of-the-box of traditional baby boy themes.
We are raising our boys bilingually so I decided to incorporate the Spanish alphabet and numbers. The colors were based around the fabrics. Many of the ideas came from Pinterest.
We had many DIY projects in this room. I painted a dresser, nightstand and bookcase that we already owned and my mom made the bedskirt, pennants, floor pillow, throw pillow and changer cover.

It's so hard to decide. I love the alphabet cards and my cozy corner with the rocker.
Start early so you don't feel rushed into buying things. That way you can pick up cute items as you see them. I also carried around swatches of the fabric and paint colors with me, so if I saw something I could see if it would match (or coordinate).
