Boston's Nursery Reveal

It's time! I have been talking about it for two months now and its finally here! The big nursery reveal (I feel like I have talked it up so much, so I hope it isn't a disappoinment). I am obsessed. It's literally the exact vision I had in my head, and instead of it coming out kinda like I wanted, it is EXACTLY what I wanted. I will sit in the glider and just stare at it and dream of little Boston and me in here many times. Anywho...drum roll please.....

His closet. Its right behind the bedroom door. We have a couple outfits hanging up, and a handful of shoes, and things we will be using in the near future when he arrives. We still need to stock his closet a bit more. That bench will hold his shoes and the drawers will be for excess storage like blankets, diapers and wipes. The top shelf will be for clothes he will be growing into but for now it has the diaper bag, bath and part of the pack and play all of which will be in use once he is here! Yay!

When I first found out I was pregnant, I had found a pin on Pinterest of a boys room in the colors Gray, Burnt Orange, and Creme. I loved the stripes, the colors and how it felt like a boys room without being the usual blue. So I pretty much designed his whole room on one wall of paint. I painted his entire room the gray color, then added the white and one orange stripe. I knew the second I painted his room I was going to be in heaven. Well I was worried about bedding, cause Orange bedding isn't easy to find. I had looked a couple places and then thought "Why not look at Amazon? They could randomly have something." Instantly I saw the bedding that had ALL the colors that I wanted. It was seriously meant to "B" haha (cheesy pun intended). The crib we bought when we adopted Ashton so we already had that. I wanted to have his name or something above his bed, but I didn't want to take away from the stripes. So I decide to go with a big B and it worked out perfectly. All I did was mod podge paper on it and paint it. Viola!

His glider I got when I adopted Ashton, which I surprisngly used with him for quite some time (he had to be snuggled and rocked to sleep). So we had that already. I know crib mobiles are pretty much random and useless but I always wanted to have one for my baby room. I found one that I could make on Pinterest and I actually fell in love. So I made it and it fit in PERFECTLY once again with the room. Now normally it would go above the crib but I wanted to keep the space above his crib simple, so I put it above the glider and it actually worked out quite well. 

The changing "area". We got the dresser from Jake's parents house. They have a plethora of random furniture cause my MIL can't ever get herself to get rid of anything (lucky for me). So I text her one day and asked if she had a dresser that would work for a changing table. My FIL brought this over the next day and I knew it was a match made in heaven. I had to redo it since it was well used and brown. So I painted it with the white I had left over from the stripes on the wall and added new handles and BAM! New changing table. The drawers are deep so its perfect. We use it for his diapers, wipes, socks, onesies, outfits, pajamas, blankets, burp cloths, and bibs. So almost everything. All I need to add is his changing pad, but I found the cute little lamp at Target and then the canister at Hobby Lobby and its filled with binkies. First off it adds decor, and its super convenient. 

Last is the collage above Boston's changing table. Obviously pics will be added after he is born. But I got the arrow from a pack of arrows off of Groopdealz, I found that cute "happy and you know it.." sign at Hobby Lobby and thought it was perfect for the nursery. I repainted the orange, creme, and gray frames to match his room. They we're just frames I had on hand. The creme frame has a saying that I have loved since the day I heard it, and I knew if I ever was able to get pregnant I wanted it up in the nursery.  It says:
"No one else will know the strength of my love for you. After all, you are the only one who knows what my heart beat sounds like from the inside."

And that ladies and gents is Bostons nursery! I freaking love it and can't wait for little man to ACTUALLY get here!
