I am 32 weeks pregnant with a 17 month old...my first thought was "no way am I going to spend a ton of time preparing a nursery!" But then, walking down the aisles of Hobby Lobby, a sweet vision came to my mind! A lot of their farmhouse decor was on clearance, so I started loading up my basket with the hopes my vision would soon come together. Our work was cut out for us since we needed to convert my messy office/craft room into a nursery, but Mama was in nesting phase and was certain we could accomplish anything!
I knew I wanted an accent wall behind the crib so I started my handy work researching on Pinterest. Viola! Brick accent wall! Got the tutorial and got to work with my amazing husband's assistance of course! I was obsessed with the final product and immediately wanted to brick the entire house!! I knew I also wanted to add some farmhouse touches to the window. So we made a tin window awning to go above the window and replaced the blinds with bamboo shades! Oh so lovely! Now for the paint color...I wanted to keep the paint neutral like the rest of our house, so I went with Benjamin Moore Simply White. Painting is my forte, the opposite of course for my husband but we got it done!
Now to add the decor! The best part! I got the changing table from my mother in law and with her blessing, painted it with rustoleum aged gray chalk paint and added handles from Hobby Lobby. Love how it turned out! I knew I wanted some storage for above the changing table but wanted it to be cute and also easy to use. We purchased the wall baskets from At Home. We used an easy tutorial on the barn shutters which perfectly completes the look I was going for. I struggled with what rug I wanted, but decided to go with the cowhide because I love cowhide and the different pattern fit in quite well to really complete the room, and bonus it was on sale at Hobby Lobby!
We absolutely love how it turned out and hope you enjoy the tour into our sweet boy's nursery!
