If I ever re-named our family blog (since we’re not a ‘party of 2’ anymore!) it would be called “anchors and arrows.com.” When I was pregnant with Beau I was obsessed with arrows and the adventure theme. With Walker I was drawn to anchors and a nautical theme. I love how both of their rooms turned out!
Anchors… Walker’s nursery
We kept the nursery furniture from when Beau was a baby so all there was to do was redecorate! We chose navy blues, grey, and dark stained wood to go with our nautical theme. The crib is mine from when I was a baby that my brother’s and I all slept in so I knew I wanted all of my babies to sleep in it too! At four months old, he is still sleeping in a bassinet in our room but we enjoy his room for tummy time, reading books, and lots of diaper changes.
Darren built the frame around the changing pad when Beau was a baby and he also built the bookshelf/toy storage combo unit.
Arrows… Beau’s big boy room
I was very nervous about moving Beau out of his crib and into a new room. One, just because that’s a big step and two, we didn’t want him to feel pushed out of his room by the new baby. He moved into his new room when I was very early pregnant and he did awesome with the transition! He even wanted to show off his new room to everyone that came to our house! We bought him a new dresser, night stand, toy shelf and we already had a full size bed from when this room was a guest room. We lowered the bed to the floor and put rails on it for him. It’s very nice to have a big bed when we’re laying with him every night! The headboard of his bed is an old door that we found at Homewood Antiques and bolted to the wall.
Beau’s baby quilt was made by one of my good friends so I wanted to highlight it in his room. I found this awesome wood quilt hanger and love how it turned out. Beau took his monthly baby photos on his quilt and I love the way it looks like art hung in his room! Walker’s baby quilt is made by the same talented friend and is hanging over the rocking chair in his room. He also takes his monthly photos on his quilt! I love a good tradition!
My favorite part of each boys room is their gallery wall. I love how Beau’s has grown and transformed over the years and I love how Walker’s turned out (and can’t wait to see what we get to add to his)! Joking with Darren I asked him if he thought there was a job where I could just design gallery walls all day!
