Nursery Decor

It took us until this week to get the nursery finished.  Lots of things weren't done before Alex arrived unexpectedly early!  But Steven is so pleased with it all (as am I), that he's been bugging me to put pictures up online.  So here you go.  While we didn't initially intend to have a theme, we went with a space theme after I found some fabulous artwork.  The filler is framed scrapbook paper and a banner I made with his name. 

The red picture above the banner is a bible verse: And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God.  Micah 6:8

Doogie really likes the boppy.
The comment we keep getting is that it's not a babyish room, which is exactly what we were trying to achieve.  We wanted a fun, bright room that he can grow into.  I don't want to have to redecorate in a couple of years.  We just hope he likes it as much as we do.

Love all the bright colors.Alex will grow into it. He'll be adding planes and space ships of his own in no time at all!

We didn't have a baby theme either. We used red, white and blue and Mickey Mouse. It lasted for a long time. The Mouse went, but the color was usable for trucks, cars, and planes. Then GI Joe with some camo thrown in! Finally just some nice big, boy red and blue.

I love your decor, it looks fantastic.

Another wonderful thing about your decor is that as you take and print pictures of your precious little one you can just stick them right on the scrapbook paper and have an instantly framed picture or collage.

It looks great! I love the space/robot stuff, too. My oldest was crazy about the planets as a kid, and he would have loved this room.

It is a beautiful room. You are right not to make the room for a baby. I love the colors. Enjoy being a first time mother. The time will fly by so quickly.
