Over the course of my 10 month pregnancy, I was probably asked 50 times "oh what are you doing the nursery in?" and I never had a clue what to say. Usually the answer was "blue and white". If I wanted to elaborate I would say "kinda vintagey". **Blank stares.** I knew as soon as we found out we were having a boy how I saw the nursery. We have lots of personal touches. Many things inspired by Pinterest and the hundreds of blogs I follow, but most of it was inspired by us and some of the things we've collected over the years. The dressers were Bret's and Bret's Dad before that. I spent hours putting the hope chest together when I was a Freshman in high school. The pennant is from Bret's grandpa and adorned the walls of Bret's room as a child. I've been begging my aunt for this chair from their house for years. The wall gallery is filled with personal touches. The tissue pom-poms were made by my best friend for one of the showers. The chalkboard above the changing table was made by the same friend for the same shower. Everything is personal and filled with love!
Steffen's favorite spot in the room. He has "talked" to that black and white picture for weeks and he recently has a new love for his mobile (especially when I run my fingers in it and make it move). We laugh and talk here every day.
In case you're wondering what we're doing with a blank canvas, it will (one day) be filled with Steff's footprints. I haven't quite made time to do his first ones yet, but will soon. Right?
