Baby Boy Nursery Tour

Guess what!?! 
He's here. :D 

MY baby boy that is...and he's already a month old. I basically have just spent this last month breastfeeding but I really wanted to get a post up about his sweet nursery (+ just let ya'll know that he is here) and right now he is snoozing in dad's arms, so I'll type fast til he wakes up and wants to eat again. So, here is Oren's nursery...

The second room in the house to have all the trim done!

I sewed up these little clouds by hand...which I really am not a fan of doing.
It felt like it took forever, but I really wanted the nursery to be just the way I pictured it in my mind for when he came home...not that he cares. I don't think he can even see them yet. ;)

None of these pictures really show the wall color well. This is probably the best's a very soft green. It is "Sheltering Winters Pine" by Valspar. (We left it from when this was the guest bedroom because I thought it also seemed fitting for a nursery.)

I got this marble lamp base at a garage sale for $10 and my husband re-wired it with a $7 kit...and that is just a cheapo Walmart shade that I got on clearance for $5.

My mom found this vintage print at Goodwill for $4
...the background matches the wall color perfectly.

And another awesome thing Grandma did... 
She refinished this dresser (that was her grandma's, so Oren's great-great-grandma's) that we use as the changing table. It's a very pretty soft blue/green chalk paint. And she added some new glass knobs from HobLob that look very vintage. 
It fits a lot of onsies! Thanks grandma...and great-great grandma!

...also I just realized that I never really got a good picture. This dresser is up on 4 pretty legs...

*Guess who is now nursing and typing one handed*
...not that easy... 

And then there's Aunt Maddie, who has so much talent in so many different areas it's ridiculous. 
Painting would be just one thing she's good at.

Yep, my sister made these!

The theme of the baby shower was Peter Rabbit. 
My mom is super awesome at throwing any kind of party, so hopefully some day I'll get around to blogging about the shower and can show off some of that decor...
But anyways it resulted in a bit of a Peter Rabbit theme in the nursery (YAY!). 
I love Beatrix Potter's artwork,
 and my sister did such an awesome job re-creating some of her characters. 

Also, I'm on the lookout for the right kind of floating shelf to put underneath these paintings, 
and that's why they are hung kinda high.

The bunting on the window is leftover from the baby shower.
It matches the quilt hanging over the crib. Both made by my awesome momma!

I got some awesome light gray black out curtains on amazon, and we put them behind the sheers.
Kinda weird I know, but I do what I want. And I wanted the sheers to stay.

Teddy's bow also matches the quilt and bunting.

I used this old tool box that I had painted blue and distressed last summer to corral all of his blankets.

The rug and bed-skirt are both from IKEA. I know you're not supposed to use bumper pads anymore, so I still wanted to try to make the bed look a little cozy, and I think the skirt helps with that. 

I got this free printable and the one up by the lamp off of Pinterest. 

Oh, you can almost see the dresser's nice legs! Urg... mad at myself I didn't get a picture of that.

The other free printable

And, a not so beautiful picture, but look at all those clothes! There's 97 hangers plus I have a pile not hanging up, plus that gigantic dresser is filled up! 
I'm still nervous about trying to get him in everything before he outgrows sizes.

 And the big belly in front of the crib! I think this was 39 weeks along.
Patiently waiting.
He stayed in there until 41.

And now, the most important part! The baby boy to go in the nursery. :)
Meet Oren Nicholas Godfrey.
Born 6/6/17 at 2:05 am
He was 8lbs 3ozs and 20.5 inches long

There we are getting ready to leave the hospital!

He's been a pretty good baby, and I am enjoying motherhood a lot so far.
I don't really get much done except for feeding the baby, but at least he is super cute to stare at!
And breastfeeding is quite peaceful, so I can't complain.

Thanks for taking the tour!

Have a blessed week.
