Rowan's Nursery.

Welcome! Here's a little mini tour of Mr. Rowan Noble Frazier's room... we are eagerly anticipating his arrival this week! {nope, it really has NOT hit me.} However, I thought I should get these up on this good old {VERY neglected} blog because it might not ever happen if I don't do this now. :)

Mr. Snuffy, ode to my childhood weenie dog, greets you when you walk in. :)

All I have wanted in a nursery for years were the letters "PLAY"... I hope our children live by this motto alone. (Anthro.)

Photobucket
Ryan built the shelves... HOURS of love went into these with lots of prep work. We love the industrial / masculine feel they bring. The toy chest was my grandparents - we just painted, added castors, & a locker no.

Photobucket
Another shot of the shelving... industrial plumping piping & wood. (Home Depot)

Photobucket
My sweet aunt & cousin got us these shelves... (PB) all I wanted was a book at an arms reach when I rock to him. Of course my love for Rifle Paper needed a spot in the room with the hat prints.

Puppy dog tail hooks - Ikea. Running monkey pic - fab.com.

The elephant was mine growing up, (it just needed polishing & a new rope tail) Pouf & Rug - One Kings Lane, Dresser - repainted from my college days, Glider- Layla Grace, Light - PB.

Photobucket
Vintage flash cards. (in Ikea frame)

Photobucket
I sewed Rowan his own little pennant... every little boy needs a pennant, right? (in Ikea frame)

Photobucket
Little Red Racer car from my sweet mom & swim locker baskets from an industrial supplier online.

Photobucket
Books- all gifted... all I want to do is teach him a love for reading. Whale - Wisteria. Duck - from my best friends from college. Bucket - Restoration.

Photobucket
Old pics of his grandfathers & booties knitted from a best friend from college's mother.

Photobucket
His changing table. (that we hope to make his desk one day) and duh. We HAD to have a bear... {sic em}, so I found this print on etsy. (in Ikea frame)

Photobucket
Blocks - from my NM work Shower... I love them.

Photobucket
I had someone sew his bedding... we loved the dog print & pops of red. I sewed his little sailboat mobile. I started out only knowing I wanted sailboats... I ran into some kinks wanting it to actually move & making them somewhat look like sailboats. ha It took a while to figure out the logistics of, but I ended up happy with the outcome.

Another bedding & mobile shot.

Lots of boy-ish stuffed animals everywhere. & below, airplane - Home Goods.

Photobucket
His little room turned into much more "little boy room" than baby's nursery, but we love it that way. We think it will grow with him. It was definitely our little labor of love... a lot of research, painting, bargain hunting, DIY, sanding, sewing, making, degreasing, scouring, searching, sweating, surfing the net, & waiting... but we both like things that way in our home. Lots of love & eclectic mixes... and not out of a box. :) It's way more fun that way, right? ha.

xoxo. Happy Monday!
