Nursery for Jack!

I'm so excited to share Jack's nursery with everyone! I have been waiting so long to have a nursery and I can't believe it's finally done! It took us about 3 total weeks to complete it. I got a lot of great deals on furniture, but because it was all mismatched, it ALL had to be painted white. And did you know if you don't spend money on a good white paint, you will have to paint it five or six times over the primer!!!!!!!!?  :)  So, that took the majority of the time. But once all the furniture was painted, it was fun putting it all together. Now that it's done, I go in his nursery about two or three times a day and sit and look at everything. :)  I just can't wait to have him home! Anyway, here it is!  I hope Jack likes it and maybe even wants to sleep there. ;)

This is what you see when you walk in.
The quilt that inspired the nursery. A gift from my mom.
Looking to the left.
My first mural! Decided to add the growth chart last minute.
Our awesome humidifier. I added the yankees hat of course. ;)
We attached shelves to the branches.

Our little golfer! ;)
Artwork by my sister. And a perfect little Pella piggy bank my hubby got from work.

The right side of the room.
My first painting for Jack. We chose this verse because it's good for us to be reminded that we are all adopted through Christ!

Dog approved! ;)

Now all we need is JACK!

  10. This is a nicest room I have ever seen!

  11. I found your blog through Pinterest when a friend of mine forwarding me the image of your canvas. I absolutely LOVE it {and the room, by the way}. We are currently adopting from the Philippines and I would DIE for one of these canvas prints. I see that your shop is closed right now. Any word on when I can order one of these? Jack is the cutest!
