Henry's Nursery

Before we dive into these pictures, there are two things you need to note: baby Henry is not the baby boy in my belly, and this nursery is not at our house.  Instead, baby Henry and this nursery both belong to one of my best friends, Jenny, who has a due date of April 1st (no joke!).  I am stoked that my little boy will have a little buddy so close in age to play with.  I hope he and Henry become the best of friends!

Ok, onto some nursery pictures.  Last Friday my mom and I got to go over to Henry's nursery and add some things that we had worked on.  Mom made all of Henry's crib bedding and I mostly made his curtains (Mom helped...).  We were glad Jenny let us in on the fun!  

Before we arrived with all the textiles for the room, Jenny and her husband, Darrin, had already been hard at work.  They repainted several pieces of furniture in red and navy and also painted the walls a nice neutral khaki color.  They had already purchased super cute artwork for the walls, assembled some storage bins, and found the cutest light switch I've ever seen.  

I think the navy and red airplane nursery turned out SUPER cute, but I'll let the pictures do the talking...

 This is the view from the door to the room.  My mom made the (reversible) throw pillow and patchwork quilt out of leftover fabric.  Those storage bins came from Costco (I think) and Jenny added paint samples to the label holders to make them coordinate with the room.  Great idea!  The curtains are a red pillow ticking stripe.

 There are so many things I love about this wall.  Is that little airplane rocking chair not the cutest thing you've ever seen!?!?  Jenny found it in a thrift-ish shop while on vacation and it was part of the inspiration for the theme of the room.  It's a perfect fit since they are also world travelers.  The crib skirt came from Pottery Barn and was a perfect match for the airplane fabric we had already found (should've requested a close-up pic of it, oops).  Mom made the bumpers - airplanes on the outside and minky dot on the inside - and also the crib sheet that matches the curtains.  The map above the crib shows animals from different countries, and I LOVE the propeller they found to hang on the wall!  The navy table in the corner will eventually be Henry's bedside table and they added the cutest little airplane pull to the drawer.

 Maybe you can see the airplane fabric better here?

 The navy dresser will also serve as a changing table as soon as they add the changing mat to the top of it.  The airplane pictures work perfectly in the room!

On the opposite wall is a red desk/hutch combo that is already housing several gifts for Henry.  He needs to hurry and get here so they can fill up those cute picture frames! Oh, and the cute vintage planes on top came from Hobby Lobby.

Hope you enjoyed the tour!  While I am more than ready to meet the little guy, I do hope he holds out for that April Fool's Day due date.  That could be a fun birthday to have!
