Wyatt’s Nursery

It is extremely pathetic that I am just now getting to this post, it just seems like something that was put on the back burner for the first few months when I was trying to get everything perfect and do the finishing touches before I took pictures. Then after that it was just completely forgotten about and I wasn’t going to make a post. But with it being our first baby, I want to remember how I decided on everything the way I did.

We didn’t find out what we were having before Wyatt was born so I went with pretty general colors: Gray, Navy & White. If it was a girl I planned on putting lots of pink/red flowers up in a corner on the striped wall and calling it good. Looking back on it, I guess it is a pretty boyish nursery so good thing he was a boy! I also went with an arrow theme for some unknown reason, and man arrows ended up becoming a big deal right around the same time so my sisters-in-law made that the shower theme and it all came straight from the shower, they rock!

I knew I wanted white furniture for the nursery to just give it that really happy bright vibe that I think every nursery should have. And since navy was one of my colors and it is a dark one, I thought it would help liven it up. I planned to paint the gray to a lighter gray, but being as we aren’t going to have any more babies at this house, I said forget the trouble and leave it the gray it is.

I had in my gut that I wanted Navy/White so bad but I worried about that being too dark and a lot of people said go safe with gray/white. I just kept seeing walls on Pinterest with the navy/white and I finally just pulled the trigger and went for it. I painted the wall navy and Kyle helped make the stripes and I then painted them white. The wall turned out SO much better than I could have hoped and I think this wall might being coming with us to a new house 😉

All of the furniture I kind of knew what I wanted right from the start and then I made the money at monarch’s and got to splurge on what I wanted. I am so glad I did too because we will have this furniture for such a long time and for hopefully lots of kiddos so it was worth it.

I absolutely love these bookshelves and had seen stuff like it on Pinterest but didn’t think it was necessary. But for some reason I pulled the trigger and I am SO happy I did. I just love how this little “library” ended up and can’t wait for Wyatt to be reading all his books.

Wyatt ended up getting SO many baby blankets (first child problem) and I didn’t know what to do with all of them. I had seen before putting blankets on a ladder and I decided to go cheap and just have my handy husband make a quick ladder. $5 dollars later and a little bit of paint and this turned out perfect.

Lastly I just love how convenient and organized Wyatt’s closet is. I definitely stole this idea from someone else to put the bookcase in the closet (since his hanging clothes aren’t taking up all the space) And then I added an organizer on the left to put his daycare outfits for each day so I didn’t have to do that in the morning.

To say the least it was obvious I used to have plenty of time on my hands before the first baby and I doubt any other nursery will be this planned or put together all the time. But it is such a fun room and I just love being in there, probably helps that it is where a sweet little boy lives!
