Please bear with me as I retrace my steps and photos from before we had our butterball. (Those photos to come soon enough!) But first, allow me to introduce the nursery, which used to be our study, also lovingly known as the Penn State room. If you weren’t aware, my husband and I both graduated from Penn State, and it happens to be the place where we became a “we.” :)
Here’s the transformation in a couple of pics…
We thought the bean would love this big bright window. Daddy-to-be is taking measurements and drawing up plans…
Older brother BasiL quickly became very suspicious as to why we were spending so much dang time in this room…
First step: install crown molding.
Second step, throw some paint on them walls. That royal blue wasn’t doing us any favors.
Third step, hang some wall art! Airplane banner was taken from my shower. Starting at top left going clockwise: a photo that Jay took while flying in an F/A-18, art deco “Q” from Edie’s Lab on Etsy, an airplane art print from dear friends, a photo of Jay’s father (whom baby was partially named after), a quote print from oh my deer on Etsy, a photo of Jay’s grandfather (whom baby was also partially named after) and mirror from Target.
Airplane ride night light was a gift from my mother-in-law.
Glider is from West Elm.
To pay homage to our roots, I found and printed a vintage aerial photograph of State College to hang by the crib. Our airplane mobile was made for us by a dear friend, and the red poster is the phonetic alphabet via Art.com.
Hope you enjoyed the transformation!
