This is linked up to Kelly's Korner to show your nurseries. I haven't done one of these but couldn't resist this one!

I LOVED decorating these nurseries. Harris' looks so different now and I'm glad I took pics before it became a toddler territory. His bedding is toile, but the print is children playing baseball. There are red corduroy and black plaid accents. The name above his bed is scrapbook paper with letters glued on. Hanging 6 things straight was not an easy task. I'm sure some would have used a level, but I went with the trial and error method of putting 200 nail holes in the wall. It's time to take these down, actually, but I know what's under there so we're leaving it for now.

The mobile plays Boomer Sooner. Even if we're in Texas we are starting our boys off on the right path.

That chair is now in Walker's room and looks a little worse for the wear. Countless hours were spent in that thing. And the diaper genie is gone and didn't come back for nursery #2. I think they just make the room stink but maybe we weren't using it right.

 The toy bag above and the frame below were made by my sister. Didn't she do a great job???

 As Harris got older, he would stand in his crib and point out the different things on his shelf. He loves to get the train down and play with it.
I put these pics together. I don't have a crafty bone in my body, so I'm happy with how they turned out. 

Here's little Walker's room. It's totally different but I think it's just as cute.
The sign above the bed was painted by my sister. She was a lifesaver on both nurseries!
 The prints above his changing table are the vinyl wall decals, but I thought they would look better framed.

 I wanted to do something above the closet doors and couldn't think of anything. I found these a few days before he was born and went with it to get it done. 

These shadow boxes were supposed to be really simple, but since I am in no way crafty they turned into an ordeal. But they're cute now, as long as no one touches them. They're not the most stable creation. The back is a cereal box lid that's covered in fabric and jammed into the box,

Here's a closer pic of his bedding. I loved the blue/white giraffe print.

 Another frame my sister painted. With a super cute little boy in it.  :)  He was 2 weeks old here. Love that sweet sleeping smile.

This pic is not the best but shows the cute animals on either side of the window. Just a disclaimer, both valances have been taken and replaced with blackout shades. That and a sound machine are must haves for good long afternoon naps.
Hope you enjoyed these rooms!
