When my wife and I found out we were going to have a baby we were thrilled. Of course having a baby meant needing a nursery. And the only room available was my freshly decorated / built office. (I’ll let you guess who no longer has an office.) Deciding what to do with the nursery was one of the hardest tests our marriage had yet faced. Fortunately we live in the internet age and were able to use Pinterest as a way to fight a proxy war for decorating the room. And over the course of a few months, we eventually settled into a design.
I firmly believe that without Pinterest, we’d still be arguing over paint colors.
While it all worked out for our family (and our son loves his room, except, of course, at bed time.) What I wished I had seen though was this fun idea for decorating a nursery. For this nursery they had everyone who came to the baby shower bring a different letter – and then used those letters to hang on the wall.
One of the hardest parts of decorating a nursery is finding what to use. Pictures are nice in living rooms and dining rooms. But for a nursery you want things that are more sentimental. Simply hanging a picture to fill a wall just doesn’t feel right.
Plus, kids love looking (and touching) things. So the more texture you can have, the more they’ll enjoy being in their room. And let’s face it, when Junior wakes up at 2 AM, you’ll love just about anything that will keep him in bed!
