I am so very excited to finally share Finn’s cactus nursery with you today!
I still have a few small odds and ends to add to this space to help warm it up- right now you can clearly tell that a baby doesn’t live in here quite yet! But once he is here and it is filled up with more toys, books, and baby items, I think this room will really cozy right up and be a functional and perfect space for sweet Finn to grow up in.
Here is what his room started out as- Mabel’s nursery!
The things we(Jim) did in here:
- Painted the walls
- Installed a shiplap accent wall
- Built sliding closet barn doors
- Installed a closet light
- Installed a light/ceiling fan and changed out an old light for a new school house light!
- Hung wall art
- Painted the crib (it went from coral pink to green!)
- Moved in furniture!
We reused all of the furniture from Mabel’s nursery. The dresser, nightstand, rocker, lamp and crib are all pieces that she had in her room. The only changes I really made were changing out the rug, adding the four cube organizer, and painting the crib a new color.
If there was anything I could change in here, it would be finding some way to make his air conditioner window unit be less of an eye sore! This room absolutely has to have one because the sun shines into this room literally from sun up to sun down and it gets as hot as hades in here without it- but still, it isn’t very aesthetically pleasing 😉
I mentioned in this post how the first thing I decided on for his room was this giant House Of Belonging sign. I knew right away that I wanted to hang it over his crib. From there, I started thinking about what color I wanted to make his crib- I decided pretty quickly on green…which then led to to the loose cactus theme.
And of course, I wanted to add some rustic and raw wood elements to the room, which is where the ideas for the shiplap accent wall and barn doors came from!
Jim did an amazing job working in here and totally made my entire vision come to fruition. I absolutely love this space. I’m so happy with how bright, crisp, and clean it is but also how it has totally become a little boy’s room.
