i'm still in the planning stages as far as putting together a space for the little guy...
I know what I like and what I want, it's just a matter of finding things, buying them, and putting it all together.
as it stands, the walls are gray and the carpet is navy. for the life of me, I can't remember the exact color - just that it was from sherwin williams. everything else is oak.
a while back, dh hung a few wood-stained shelves for me. i promised i'd leave them up long-term. lol... also, somewhere around here, there's a wood-stained children's table and chairs set, which will eventually end up in here as well.
i'm thinking i want to use mostly gray/aqua/navy in this room...
here are links to a few of my favorite spaces for little ones -
little baby garvin
here's a link to my pinterest board - a space for the little guy...
eta: found this website as well - chic & cheap nursery
notice anything? not one of these spaces has a specific theme. I mean, i'm not opposed to the idea, it's just not what i'm looking for - I like things plain & simple. I also want something that, for the most part, will grow with him.
i'm seriously considering ikea. i'm head over heels for their furniture - love it!
i want atleast one piece that can function for multiple purposes - a dresser and a changing table. the hemnes 8-drawer dresser, as expensive as it is, could fulfill that role. it's a bit tall, atleast as far as dressers go, so leaning over it shouldn't be a strain on the back. i also love the expedit - i think it'd be awesome for the little guy's books and toys, especially considering it can be turned on its side, so it's lower to the ground - the perfect height for a toddler.
have you planned a space for a little one? any words of wisdom? leave me a comment and let me know. it's greatly appreciated.
have a great weekend!
