our baby boys room tour

Our baby boy will be joining his big sister Lucy(2) in just a few short weeks and for his nursery I knew I wanted something with a vintage feel and a little manly. I challenged myself to use mostly what we already had on hand to decorate and furnish it. The dresser was my husbands from college which got a fresh coat of red paint. The 1950's school house map of Europe was relocated from our family room and I built the large ribbon board from a frame I had in the garage. The walls got a coat of soft greige paint and pops of color were added to the room through accessories which were also mostly relocated from different rooms in our home. I totally "shopped the house" on this one baby!

In case you were wondering "where the heck is the changing table?" I'll tell you. Because the size of the room rather small we had to choose between dresser or changing table. Luckily his closet is well built (as well as lit) and was large enough to accommodate the changing table so that's where it lives. I'm pretty happy with it being in there and out of sight anyway.

Hope you enjoyed the tour, please feel free to leave a comment or send me a message if you have any questions. I think the only thing I have left I want to do is make fun little bunting to hang on his crib.

  1. I love his room Sarah! It makes me wish I had a boy room to decorate. Are the prints new since I was there? I don't remember them but maybe I was so taken in by the rest of the cuteness that it just slipped past me.
