I love walking into Jake's room. It still remains my favorite room in the house. There's something so completely peaceful and happy about his room. My goal was to give the room a vintage, yet modern feel.
This is Jake's least favorite spot in the room, the changing table! He hates having his diaper changed. Being in the 95th percentile for weight and height, he has completely outgrown the changing pad and is almost longer than the dresser. The only reason I still put him up there is so he can't escape.
Jake's framed name was one of the first DIY projects I made for him. All I did was buy an inexpensive frame, paint it, remove the glass and mount painted paper craft letters against the wall with 3M strips.
I must have known that my son was going to love planes. The paper plane vinyl decals were a perfect way to dress up our tall ceilings. And do you spot that cute robot on the clipboard? It was made by a very talented little girl. After I saw it on her mom's blog, I knew I needed a print. You can see her original here.
My favorite part of our reading corner is the fun green painting that is hung above the book shelf. It was actually painted by an elephant...yes an elephant...who apparently is quite the abstract artist. Don't forget to look just above the chair. If you're not a cyclist or married to one (like me), you probably don't know that hanging from the J is a miniature cycling jersey. You seriously can find anything for kids these days!
I hope Jake's nursery was able to provide you with some inspiration for your own little boy or girl. Creating this room was such a joy and seeing Jake adore it completely fills my heart.
