When I was pregnant with Foster, we planned to have the boys share a room. We decorated our house in Utah accordingly, and then when we moved to California we did the same. 

But about two months after he was born, we decided that them sharing a room was better fit for their older years, since they were just constantly keeping each other up at night. So at Christmas time, we rearranged the bedrooms a bit and put Fos in his own room. 
About six months after the switch, I finally got around to painting the dresser, which was formerly a light oak color, and was Philip’s before we got married. And then about six or eight months after that I bought frames for the gallery wall. And then eventually I hung a few things. A couple of months ago I finally tackled one corner, which I showed here. Then, after more than two years of being an almost completely empty room, we finally got a rocking chair and rug, and the room was almost complete. A few final touches last week, and the nursery is finally done. Hallelujah. 
Now I’m so excited to share it with you — I love how it turned out!

    Love it all! I especially love how you painted the dresser! I would love to do something similar in our nursery. What color paint did you use? Any other helpful details on how I could achieve something similar?

    I love that chair. I was just showing Adam a very similar one yesterday, and telling him that when we have our next baby, I want a glider. The entire nursery looks great! And I love the pics of Fos in this! He is so cute!

    I love the neutral colors! The letters on the wall are so cute!

  6. I love the color scheme! And the picture wall. I’m going to be doing something similar above my desk.
