Copeland's Colorful Nursery

My Room

Name: Copeland (9 months)
Location: North Carolina

Perfect timing: I found out I was pregnant and was also introduced to Pinterest. I birthed Copeland, and Pinterest birthed his nursery. I found almost all of the inspiration for his room there. I started with gray walls, and then color just started to flow. The room is not all that big, so I tried to save floor space by using a dresser for a changing table, and created the bookshelf wall as decoration and a functional space that was not a bulky piece of furniture. This room was a mixture of DIY, Craigslist, and items made by friends/family. The dresser, chair, and footstool came from Craigslist, the pennant banner and quilt were made by a close friend, the curtains/bumper/bookshelf wall were made by my parents, and there are many of mine and my husband's childhood things hanging around as well.

My husband and I are musicians, so the music side of us made its way in there, too. The chalkboard wall is my favorite. The middle frame message changes here and there, and once he is old enough for a big boy bed, the wall will be his headboard (what kid wouldn't want to draw on their headboard?). The details of the room are eclectic, but fit together like a puzzle. I love that we were able to do it on a dime and still come up with a room that Copeland can enjoy now and later.
