Geez… I think I’m really overthinking this whole nursery thing. Sometimes I’ll say to J.C., “I’ve been thinking…” and he immediately says, “Uh-oh…” I get to thinking too much and come up with wild ideas that normally involve more work for him. And the fact that I can’t make a solid decision right now is not helping at all. Basically what I’m trying to say is that I’m having a really hard time coming up with solid ideas for little man’s room.
I do know a couple of things…
1). I really like this chair!
I shared a bunch of different rocker options with you guys here and this is probably my favorite.
2). I want to incorporate blue. One reason being because this chair is a bluish-gray color. The other reason is because J.C. did a really pretty painting in college that has blues in it and I want it to be featured in little man’s room.
3). There will be a Jenny Lind style crib and changing table in there but I don’t know what color they will be… just another decision I have to make 😥
Before we knew we were expecting a baby, I found this fabric on sale at Hobby Lobby and bought 2 yards of it to use in our guest room in some shape, form, or fashion.
Well, I still really like it and the colors and think it reads “little boy”… but (there’s always a but) I’m not sure how I would use the fabric. I wouldn’t be good for bedding and there isn’t enough for curtains. Maybe a pillow for the chair or a crib skirt?!
But then I ask myself if it’s ridiculous that I’m trying to base his whole nursery off of some clearance fabric just because I have it?! Do you see my dilemma people?! Somebody help me! So, while I was being all indecisive, I threw together these little mood boards and added a few different yellow rug options in there because I like yellow too. It’s cheerful, fun and there’s some yellow in the fabric.
That rug is so pretty but I’m not sure how well it would hold up to a little boy with that white in there. And how fun is that deer fabric? It’s from Fabric.com and can be found here. I can see me using it as a changing pad cover or maybe for a crib skirt.
Here’s another rug but I’m not sure if it’s “masculine enough”…
I love the rug, but is it suitable for a baby boy nursery?! OH heck, will he even care? He won’t even be able to see it for the first few months of his life because they can’t see that far past their face. Do you see how I’m taking all of this WAY too seriously? Somebody please just call some help already!
If you are still reading and didn’t get royally confused, please please please leave me a comment below and tell me what to do in this nursery. Do you like the blue and yellow? What about the deer fabric? And should I just burn that clearance Hobby Lobby fabric and start from scratch? Or should I just get over myself because the baby will love me anyway? That sounds like a plan to me 🙂
