Our baby’s room…

15 Jul

I tend to be a little unconventional when it comes to decorating…I love color and trying new things.

 So it should be no surprise that our baby’s room is burnt orange!

We painted and decorated it this way for our first baby, and because it is so gender neutral, when baby #2 came along, we didn’t have to change a thing!

This we got at Cowboy Christmas in Las Vegas a few years ago…I didn’t get the company’s card and can’t remember the name. I LOVED that company, so if you have any idea…


My husband is a HUGE Johnny Cash fan and so as a surprise my Mom put this up on the wall while we were at the hospital having baby #1…he LOVED it!!



My Mom also made this curtain for the room, and she recovered the chair, and made the crib skirt, sheets and made a quilt…

Thanks Mom!!! I love you!


This lamp is my Dad’s from when he was a kid.

He remembers looking at it every night and dreaming about how he was going to be a cowboy when he grew up.

Hope my kids have the same dreams…


And I admit this is a funny photo to have taken/added, but I LOVE this furnace grate and I refinished the hardwood myself. We pulled up the pink carpet that was there when we moved in and found the original hardwood! I spend about a month (pregnant!) sanding, staining and varnishing the floor and LOVE it!! I have big plans to do the whole upstairs one room at a time. This photo inspires me to get started right away!!



I love this room, not only because of all the memories from the babies, but because it was the first room that I decorated when we moved in. It has my (our) stamp on it and feels like home every time I am in there. Can’t wait to show you more of our house/my decorating!! Have a great day!
