Sonny's Nursery

I know what you’re thinking.. is it really necessary to have a new nursery for the THIRD baby?? Well yes, yes it is! You see, we lived in Grand Forks, ND after having Oliver and moved shortly after he was born so we never enjoyed that space. We also lived in Blaine, MN when Attikus was born but were renovating our “dream” home that we currently live in now at the time so I never got around to making a nursery in either house. Yes, he had his own space and a crib and a few trinkets, but I’ve never really had that nesting time to actually plan out a nursery and get things special for the new babes. So this time around I really wanted to, and that’s exactly what I did!

Don’t be fooled most of what I have in the nursery as far as large items like the crib, dresser, rocking chair and what not were used by both boys! For a while I was being crazy and wanted like all new stuff, but we payed a good penny for the current stuff and I do really like it so thankfully Jay knocked me off that crazy train.

I did get a few new items from Ikea like the natural wood shelves, wall book shelves plus a few new items from amazon that I will link below! As you can see I have a mixture of woods in the nursery and I am completely okay with that, I actually love the way it looks all put together.

Boys Bathroom: Before and After

Before

After

When we moved into this home, it had everything that we wanted as far as “good bones”. A large lot for not only the dogs to roam, but for the kids to play outside and for Jay to do some bow hunting. We were immediately attracted to the ranch style layout that featured all of the major aspects of a home that we had been looking for. And actually went to look at the house the night we found it on realtor.com, and put an offer in that same night! Quick turn around, but we knew what we wanted and we went for it!

The house was outdated, “live able” but outdated and before we bought it we discussed our process for renovation and how much we were wanting to spend on a remodel. The bathrooms were brown, with brown tubs and toilets, reddish/brown tile flooring, and ugly vanity’s. Not even the wall color was appealing lol

My favorite thing about renovating an old home is seeing the potential when I walk through it. Noticing the character, and bringing that to life again with some more modern ways of styling. I’m a light and bright type of person, I’ve always wanted all white walls, a white kitchen, mostly white everything with touches of color and industrial bohemian flairs. That what I like to call my style mixed with a little farmhouse.

For the boys bathroom we went with white walls, white vanity top, white tub and subway tile and added contrast by getting a wood vanity base and charcoal herringbone flooring. I love the way it turned out. It’s light and bright, easy to clean and the perfect all white bathroom in my books.
