Lincoln's nursery

Since we bought our first home in October, the thought of having complete creative control of a nursery for the first time was thrilling.  And overwhelming.  I could paint.  But what color?  I could do anything to the walls.  Let's be real, ship lap was at the top of my list.  I was excited, but also didn't know where to start.  I really didn't want to have a ton of work to do and didn't want to spend a ton of money.

I grabbed some paint samples and stuck them on the wall to observe in different light. Ultimately, I decided to leave the walls as is because our builders said they would return after a year to fill in cracks once the house settled and I would prefer to not have a ton of paint touch up to do.  But, I wanted some color.  I found Sigh by Valspar and knew it would be perfect to go on the ceiling.  Subtle but a pop of color especially during the day.  Painting the ceiling was a chore {on the neck} but it brings a fun element to the room.  I also, decided to add some focus to one wall with some decals.

I love how the room turned out and it is my favorite nursery of the three {sorry first two kids!}.  I love to sit in here and rock by myself in the mostly quiet house.  Our cat loves the room too and has found that she can effectively hide from the boys by staying in here.

A bunch of things were just re-used {all the nursery furniture, shelves, frames, mobile} and then I added in a few new decorative things.  The big boys have the galvanized letters in their room too, so I love that it carries through.  Can't wait to put a tiny baby in here!

 Here you can see the ceiling color!
