This alcove is the main reason that I wanted this room to be Levi's nursery. It's just a cozy little area for story time, and rocking, and of course - changing the diaper!
I didn't try to, but a lot of his stuff has stars. I love his sheets, and the mobile matches perfectly. My dad got him a perfect blue and brown star blanket before he even know about the stars in his crib area.
I especially love how the star sheets look in this picture (although I don't know why this picture looks squished when I post it...)
Here is a close up of the paintings I did over his crib. I used the wall color as the base on canvas (although after i did it I thought I would have rather painted them brown or left them white as the base color. I ended up adding a brown border and it made it look so much better. (I did these with a stencil of course, I do not have a talent or love for painting!!)
This is probably the most special item in his nursery. That chair that he's sitting on was made by his Grandaddy (Jarrods dad.) He was putting the finishing touches on it while we were in the hospital. It is AMAZING, the picture doesn't do it justice. It is strong and shiny, rustic and polished. He didn't have a "pattern" (I know this isn't the right word, it's not a sewing project). He just got his 2X2s (I think), and figured out how to align them to form a chair. I could easily see this chair in fancy children's boutiques - and it was hand crafted with hours of labor and love especially for him. (Sorry for the yet again squished pic)
Here are all three of my favorite parts of the nursery: The Chair, the blanket, and of course, the baby!!
