Nursery Pictures

So Baby Boy's nursery painting is done. All that's left to do is get the furniture in there which we will do in early July since we are using Chloe's nursery set for him. I don't want to change her to the toddler bed until after vacation. Anyways...as for the painting of the nursery, David painted the actual 2 colors on the wall and then my neighbor came over to do the mural. She just started her own business and as you'll see in the pics, does a phenomenal job! We chose to use to different shades of brown and use accent colors of orange and green (The bedding is green). I didn't want a ton of color on the wall as I didn't want his room to be too "loud", so my neighbor suggested just painting a silhouette using the darker brown. Anyways, the theme is African Safari and the pictures truly speak for themselves. If any of you want her information, please let me know. The pricing is very affordable and she finished the job in just 1.5 days. I'm highly recommending her!



The beginning of the nursery...Chloe went in to see her daddy painting and stepped in his tray of paint. Neither of us noticed until she had made a little trail of footprints. No worries though...it came right out.



This is the wall you see when you first walk in. The baby lion's are underneath the tree and a herd of zebras are walking away.



Where the wall ends and the next begins...looks as though the zebras are following the elephants



Mommy and baby elephants



This is a giraffe growth chart. We just have to go back and add the numbers in.

That is amazing! I can't wait to see it with the furniture and all decorated. It's going to be beautiful. What a fun place for a baby.
