Jack's Nursery!

I never got around to posting progress/finished picture of Jack's nursery last year. The reason for that was my sudden pre-term labor/bedrest/premature delivery. 
A few weeks ago John and I finally hung the last few things in his nursery.
( Hey, he's not 1 yet. It's not TOO bad, right? ;) ) 

So, here are the pictures of Jack's nursery.
I didn't end up completing it exactly like I'd originally planned, but decided to just go with what we had so far!
For those that don't know, his nursery is nautical themed!

 (The wall that sticks into the picture on the right hand side is the closet. There's a nook between the closet and the doorway that I'm standing in that has his dresser in it.)

 (notice the pad on the top rail... that's because Jack always chews on the side of the crib. Everything is a teether to him. :-p)

(This picture shows the Punch Brothers poster John got at a concert. He told me he bought a poster and wanted to put it in the baby's room, and I was like, "No! We're not putting music posters in the baby's room!" He then said it was really cool, and I was like, "I'll look at it, but I doubt it." The poster was actually really awesome... I guess I should have trusted him that this picture didn't have skulls/eyeballs like most band posters :-p I actually loved the way it looked in the room.)

(This is a close up shot to show the frame. I wanted some more unique frames for this poster and the map over his crib, but most frames were very expensive. So... my solution?
Grab my husband. Bring him to Lowes. Find some wood/trim/stain and make our own frames! It was a bit of work, but I love how unique they are!)
So, there's Jack's nursery!
It's crazy how, while pregnant I had so many plans and preparations, and deadlines for things I "just had to have ready" before baby came... but then, when life hits, you realize what really needs to be done/ready for baby, and what can wait.
This waited, but it was fun to complete now! :)


  1. Wow, Hayl! This REALLY looks nice!! Very warm and rich with your color choices! Kudos to John for the cool frames... Great job on those! they fit that nautical look nicely. ;-)

  2. Hey, is the fish net stuff over on the dresser? Or the wall hanging of knots?

  3. The nautical knots are by the dresser but I still haven't gotten the net up over there yet! I'm hoping to get to they eventually. Lol
