I decided that since my wife had the hard part of the deal, I could at least take care of the nursery for her. Our little boy isn't due for a couple weeks, but the room is done and ready for him. I posted these pictures on another forum for expectant parents and some of them suggested I share it on here so here they are. I had a blast coming up with the designs and taking them from paper and pencil to completed pieces. Hope you all enjoy!!
As a furniture builder I would say my biggest inspiration was just my own imagination.
Living in Lake Ozark, Missouri most of our activities and life style revolve around the lake,boating, fishing and relaxing. It was a perfect fit for us to use a Nautical theme for our first child, and once I started building I just couldn't stop. :)
1. Lighthouse Nightlight - I built
2. Dresser - I built
3. Sailboat Shelf Above Crib - I built
4. Bookcase Under Window - I built
5. Wall Shelves - I built
6. Changing Table - Target (Except Side Shelf - I built)
7. Wall Decor - Hobby Lobby
8. Glider - Target
9. Crib - Target
10. Recliner - Lane
11. Frames - Hobby Lobby
I would have to say my favorite item in the room would be the 6.5 foot tall Lighthouse nightlight I built. I've been building custom pieces for many years, but the fact that it's one of a kind and it's for my first child make it my favorite piece in the room.
