As of this morning, the twins’ nursery is officially complete! We were waiting on the new chair we ordered, which arrived Monday but wasn’t working (we have the worst luck with furniture). The tech fixed it this morning, and we are excited to share the final result!
Early on, Kyle and I talked about incorporating Shel Silverstein poems in the nursery. We both grew up reading his poems and have read them to Laney since she was a baby. This got me thinking about a black-and-white color scheme, and it kinda took off from there. Once we knew we were having boys, we decided to incorporate a bit of a wilderness/adventure theme too.
My favorite part of the room is, of course, the awesome wood wall Kyle and my father-in-law installed for me.🙂 Kyle and my dad also did a great job painting the dark grey walls, and I love how they contrast the lighter wood wall and furniture. I also love the tree stump end table Kyle made out of a stump from an old pine tree in my parents’ backyard. I think it is a space that we can tweak as the boys get older and will grow with them.
The room does not get a ton of light, which will hopefully be great for sleeping babies but is not so great for pictures. But here is a peek at the room and the boys’ names (or initials anyway).🙂
I hope the boys love their room for years to come!
