A special thanks to Sherwin-Williams for providing the paint to complete this project!

Baby boy's nursery is finally done, and just in time, too! Do you know how many different set-ups we tried in this tiny space?! WHY do they make townhome bedrooms so stinkin' small--the model is always so much bigger. haha! In the end, we finally found a layout that works for our family, and of course, is perfectly styled for our baby boy.

We already knew what theme we wanted to do--Peter Rabbit. I love all-things Peter Rabbit, and bunnies are the cutest ever! We didn't want his nursery to look "baby-ish" if that makes sense. We wanted it to be a room that with simple changes, could be upgraded when he's older.

My favorite wall is the accent wall that his crib is on. This room was originally my office when we first moved in, and then just as I finished decorating my office and painted it pink, we found out I was pregnant. When I was 12-weeks and we found out baby boy was in fact a boy, you can bet that Chris re-painted the accent wall blue while I was at work. He was more than ready to see that blue accent wall for our baby boy!

I love the way the chair rail perfectly accents the wall, too! Almost every room in our house has some sort of shiplap or wall accent--I couldn't deal with the plain builder-grade home anymore, and this dramatic chair rail was planned to be for a crib one day like we'd always dreamed & prayed for.

On the accent wall, we decided to paint the chair rail SW-7005 Pure White by Sherwin-Williams. It's the same white we've used in every other room in our home, and we love it! Above the chair rail is the most gorgeous blue called SW-6226 Languid Blue by Sherwin Williams. All of the other walls are our household favorite--SW-7029 Agreeable Gray by Sherwin-Williams.

Baby boy has a modern monogram hanging in the center of the wall, and I love how it adds a little preppiness to his room. Of course, no child of mine was going to have cheesy photos or graphics on their walls, so we purchased 12X12 gold matted frames to put vintage-inspired Peter Rabbit prints in that my Mama had given me years ago for when we had a baby!

We put some of the prints in frames above his dresser (which used to be mine as a kid and originally, my Mama's from when she was a kid!!) and we have a changing pad on there. That wall is super simple with the dresser, gold lamp, and a Diaper Genie hidden in the corner. 

Chris knew I wanted some simple bookshelves on the wall, so I came home from work one day, and he had put up these simple shelves, which were totally my vision!! He even styled them perfectly--did I marry right, or what?! haha!

When I first saw the room painted and his bookshelves up (mind you, this was months ago!!), I fell to the floor and just cried happy tears, because baby boy's room was finally coming together, which meant that we were really having a baby!!!

Sometimes, I'll just go into his room and sit in the rocking chair, hold my prego belly (that I'm low-key going to miss!), and stare around, knowing that in just a couple short weeks, I'll have my baby boy in my arms.

His bunny mobile above his crib helped to tie in the Peter Rabbit theme and I love, love it! P.S. The quilt that's on his crib...I MADE THAT!!! I am so proud of myself haha! I knew that I wanted to try and make a quilt for him--I didn't realize what a project I was getting myself into, but I was determined to make one. Chris and I went to Hobby Lobby and picked out the fabric and all of the supplies, and for about $30, hours & hours of work and about forty FaceTime calls to my Mama + one in-person visit to help with the binding, I made baby boy a custom quilt almost all by myself!

Pretty soon, baby boy will be laying in this crib, cozied up in these clothes, and snuggling up with his stuffed elephant. It's really happening...ya girl is about to become a Mama!!

I hope you loved seeing baby boy's nursery!
