Baby Brother's Room

I'm not sure it really matters what his name will be, I think we are so used to calling him "baby brother", that he will always be "baby brother".

This room has been a long time in the making. We converted our home office to the nursery. Do you remember the post I did that showed the office closet? All of that - even though relatively organized - had to find a new home. Either in our house or someone else's. We started with a garage sale, that got rid of some of it. After that, I had to rearrange all of the other closets in our house to try to find some room. It seemed to take forever.

We moved our office downstairs to a "sunroom" area off of our kitchen. I say "sunroom" in quotes because it is probably only 3 ft by 4 ft, but it fits a desk and a bookshelf perfectly. Not much privacy, but it will work for now.

As soon as the the doctor said, "It's a boy", we knew we would do an airplane theme. Judd loves airplanes, airlines, anything aviation related. He knows the ins and outs of the industry - not just because it is his job, but because he is truly interested in it. You can ask him anything about it.

Pottery Barn just so happened to have their airplane bedding go on sale the week we found out the sex for sure - so we jumped at the chance to buy it. Then, my mom made a curtain for us to match, Judd's mom bought us the airplane mobile, and my Grammie bought us the airplane lamp. My sister and her family bought the vinyl decal for above the crib. It was all coming together.

We ended up moving Charlotte's furniture into the nursery. Then, she got the big trundle bed we had in the office and a new dresser to match it. (I have pictures of her room to post later)



We had much different plans for this wall just earlier this week. We had pictures hung and everything - but it really looked like a wall made for a Delta executive's office, not a baby boy's room. So, I did a little research and found this idea. Does it work?




Now all we need is a little boy!!
