nursery dreaming

it is still a little to early to tell if a little mister or another little lady will be joining us this fall, but you can bet the second we started imagining our new little one i started pinning their dream room on my boards. since buying this house i have really found the designer bug hidden in me and have even gotten to practice by making over my nieces room this last month (post to come soon on that!).

our house isn't huge but a new little person will fit in perfectly and with little flairs of style happening all over the house this nursery will be no exception.

we are now proud owners of two dream cribs, the one we use will depend on who will be using it. i scored a jenny lind crib at a garage sale this last weekend for ten dollars, t-e-n, and i plan on painting it a deep plum-purple color if it is a little lady, the rest of the room will reflect bold colorful chaos of fun stuff, mixing of prints and patterns, and other fun girly touches.

if it is a mister, i am dreaming of vintage-woody-deep colors-very boy. i am trying to procure a old pulldown school style map from tim's childhood house in minnesota and baby boy would use a crib exactly like the one in the bottom left corner that we got from a friend on instagram.

i can't wait to break out the paint rollers and start hunting at my favorite thrift and antique shops! so stay tuned to see which direction this blank slate will take, we should know the sex of this little person by the end of next month, or maybe sooner.
