The Nursery....

I've had so many wonderful inspirations for the nursery that it just seems a shame I can't incorporate them all!

We're going simple, eclectic-like. 

And yes, I realize the room looks very "boy-ish".  ; )  I'm ok with that.

So here's the start of our nursery production.....

I found a photo of an awesome nursery on Pinterest that used a refurbished barndoor as the backdrop for the crib.  It looked amazing and I told my husband I had to have barn doors in our nursery.  Wierd?  Yes.  But let me say this...I kind of left the idea alone....until we were shopping for a crib, ran into a store we didn't intend on going to and found these doors (pictured above) on a clearance rack.  I HAD TO HAVE THEM!

I didn't want to simply put these doors up on the wall as decoration.  I wanted them to have some kind of functionality.  So I asked my husband to make them slide open and closed to reveal a chalkboard. I also asked him to paint the wall a bit darker so it would really contrast with the chalkboard paint, panels and doors.

I LOVE the end result!

Obviously it's still a work in progress....but we're having soooo much fun with it!!!!!!
