Show Us Your Life: Nursery

Happy Friday!

This Friday I am linking up with Kelly over at Kelly's Korner again for Show Us Your Life Fridays.

Unfortunately, this is nothing new for you guys since you've already seen numerous posts about Michael's room. Can you still call it a nursery after they are not a baby anymore? When do they graduate to a big boy room?

At any rate, it feels like I just finished his nursery I don't even want to think about doing a big boy room!

We got this dresser and changer top from a local furniture store. We love the espresso color because we really don't have too much in our house that is such a dark color wood. I was worried about it clashing with the light maple trim work but actually I think it is a nice contrast.

I also love his little crib: I think I picked out this style and color of furniture because I really wanted something similar for our bedroom set but unfortunately actually having furniture for our bedroom will be on hold for the next 12-18 years!

The wall decals are vinyl sticky things you have to rub on like a transfer. I ordered them from Dali Decals online and they were by far the best price I saw anywhere. I was really pleased and actually have a ton left over in case I ever get the desire to put up some more circles on the wall!

Michael's room is very large and so we just left our queen sized bed in there from when it was our guest room. We have actually spent a couple of nights sleeping in there with Michael (thankfully not many!) and a couple of times my mom has slept there while she stayed over with Michael. Mostly it is used for clean laundry storage that I just can't quite get into the drawers or closet.

Our friend Brandy made this fun print for us. She loves letters and it is so funny because in her nursery she has a whole letter wall! Such a great idea!

I also later added Michael's initials above the changer a few months ago. I got them on sale at a gift shop and they didn't have an S left, hence only two initials. I think I still have a few M's left over- I should find somewhere else to put them!

Thanks for stopping by, this was a nice trip down memory lane for me!


  1. I love the look of your son's room...the vinyl wall circles & monogramming to the dark furniture. Just perfect!!

  2. I love the furniture for your nursery. The colors go great together.
