My Baby Boy's Room

I've been meaning to rearrange B's room for awhile now. His crib was right in front of his window and many days, when he wakes up from nap time, he's drenched in sweat. I saw that Layla at the Lettered Cottage was having a linky party today, so that gave me some motivation to get it done.

It used to look like this not long after we moved in.

This is one of only two rooms left in my house that hasn't been painted (I'm in the process of painting the other one right now). Kris and his dad installed the beadboard several months ago. I don't hate the color, but it needs repainting, so I'm thinking of using a light green. We'll see.

I finally raised the curtains up higher and wow, what a difference that made!

The mirror used to be in our Master Bedroom. It's been in my closet for months and I finally thought about putting it in the nursery.

The red dresser used to be big brother's and before that it was my brother's.

I scored this Pottery Barn Anywhere chair at GW for $9.99. It had a pink cover on it. I had planned to take it apart and use it as a pattern to make a new cover, but that takes time and I haven't had much of that. My good friend mentioned that she had one I could HAVE. How nice of her.

I just love how his nursery turned out. He will turn 2 next week and both my other kids were out of their cribs by their 2nd birthdays. Not this one, though. I'm keeping him locked in as long as he'll let me! : )

Linked here, here and here.

PS- Any of you read the book Radical by David Platt? Our church is doing a study of it and let me just tell you, it will knock your socks off. Check it out, if you dare!

His room is so cute! You do such a good job making your house look great.

Nice job, Mama! Such a classic, fun room.

As for Radical - It rocked our socks off a few months ago and our lives were entirely upended. We listened to the series online. Now we're following where He leads -- what a wild ride!
