..Trey's Nursery..

I have finally finished Trey's nursery! 
This room has been such a project, but I ABSOLUTELY LOVE how it came together!!

{The Tree}

When I found out Trey was a boy I decided to use Tatum's old nursery bedding to save some $. I never loved Tatum's nursery, so I needed some fresh ideas to make it a space that I would love. To start I found this picture from Pottery Barn that I used for my inspiration.

This tree set such a calming ambiance that I knew I had to have it. I asked Eric if I could have my friend paint the mural and he said that he wanted to do it. Great! 6 months later it still hadn't been done so I decided to do it myself!

Back in my day I used to be an "artist". All through Highschool I took many many years of art classes. Who knew that one day those classes would pay off!

The walls I painted a sky blue and did stripes in a high gloss.
Its very subtle and kind of hard to see in the pictures but I think its perfect!

I made the drapes and accent pillows.

{The changing table}  

Lately I have been in this "labeling" kick and really like the look of custom labels.

{The Shelving}

I put these shelves up to display a few little keepsakes.

 The neighboring elementary schools made these firecrackers for all of the new moms on the Fourth of July. It doesn't match the nursery at all but its definitely worth displaying.

My Mom gave me the bunny. It matches the crib skirt perfectly. 
Also displayed are Trey's hand and foot prints and hospital tags.

And lastly I hung three white frames showcasing Trey's newborn pics above the crib.

And there you have it. Trey's perfectly perfect serene nursery.
