(before the room was a bright neon green!)
I don't know why this one carries more significance for me than others but it does. It means he is not a toddler anymore. He is a boy. Granted a little boy, but still on his way to big-kid status. At 5 years old I could still call him a toddler, not now. He's a boy.
(white rocking chair was my grandmother's)
So in honor of his birthday, I have dug out photos of his nursery. Oh, the many hours of painting, shopping and making everything 'just right.' I found many cute knick-knacks from garage sales and second-hand stores and re-painted them.
(taller dresser was built by my dad about 50 yrs ago so my mom wouldn't get a
sore back when changing my sibs & me - smart!)
And let's not forget my first-time-mom's concern with being pregnant AND painting in the winter months: I'd have the windows open for fresh air and take long breaks so my 'little bean' would not smell the paint fumes too. Oh, the worrying I did....let's not go there!
(red chair was found at yard sale for $1 and I painted it)
If you have photos of your children's nurseries and/or bedrooms, I'd love to post and share them with my readers. Contact me PlayfulDecor (at) gmail (dot) com and I will include them in my gallery.
