The Lincoln Bedroom

Here is a virtual tour of our baby boy’s nursery!  The theme of his nursery was gray and teal with chevron and polka dots.  We did a lot of little DIY crafts for his room and it is practically held together with no-sew hem tape. J
We used Chloe’s old nursery furniture for the room and got this fun gray and cream colored rug to put on the newly refinished floors done by Jona.  I found the fun inexpensive crib sheet at Target and I ordered the aqua and gray polka dot fabric for the pillow and crib skirt.  My Mom and I made the crib skirt, spruced up the roller blind and made the mobile over the changing table using no-sew bonding tape.  I bought the changing pad from Etsy to match.  The alphabet letters above the crib were a gift Chloe received from Mary and Justin but she gladly gave them up for her little brother to use.  J Beth found the rocking chair on Craigslist and Paul spray painted it a sunny yellow which also holds the beautiful afghan Grammy made.  Beth also painted an adorable painting that is hung on the wall next to the changing table.  Next to the rocking chair, we hung small book shelves so we can easily grab a story to read to our little boy.  Above the book shelves is a paper name banner and three frames that hold maternity photos that Veronika happily snapped for us. The shelf above the rocker holds a vintage looking bicycle that I randomly found and NEEDED in our boy’s room, a decorative name plate from our sitter, Mary, and a painted canvas that Chloe created.  On the door is an adorable initial sign that matches the room perfectly from Gramma.  The room was put together and created piece by piece with love and purpose throughout this pregnancy by us and the rest of the family.  We can’t wait to share it with “Baby Yincoln” very soon!
