Welcome to Bo's nursery!
This is, by far, my favorite room in the house. Every time I walk in, I feel so happy.
We didn't originally plan on having an elephant theme - we sort of fell into it.
I knew that I wanted gray walls and then decided on accent colors of blue and orange.
I wanted something that was boy-ish, but still fun and childish.
(What you don't see: the ghetto Scotch tape holding up the paper fluff balls.)
And Doug agreed readily, because blue & orange are Detroit Tigers colors.
I've always adored baby elephants, and slowly we started accumulating more & more elephant items.
As Doug said after I came home with an elephant shower curtain, "I hope Bo likes elephants."
Look at all these sweet little elephant details:
This one's not elephant themed, but it sure is adorable.
There are still a few things I'd like to do
(add a shelf above the changing table, do a photo collage of Ethiopia pics)
but we are completely functional!
Thanks to all our family & friends for all the delightful homemade touches to our sweet boy's room!
All the nursery really needs now is BO!
