the nursery reveal...

{kind of... remember this is the second child! alot left to do. ha!}

Back when I was pregnant with Hadlea, I 'knew' she was going to be a boy. You know... because I have that awesome motherly instinct! :-) When I started looking at nursery ideas, I only looked at boys stuff. And you other mom's of boys KNOW that there isn't crap out there for boys. Well there is... but it includes alot of theme-y stuff that I just do not love. I started googling things and came upon an older boys skateboard room. I LOVED it! {which totally makes sense since neither Justin nor I have ever ridden a skateboard!} I have been envisioning this room for quite some time... at least 3.5 years!

When we found out this one was a boy, {and my motherly instinct just KNEW it was a girl. ugh!} I knew I wanted graffiti. I had intended to have someone come to our house, paint a busted up brick wall above the crib and then graffiti his name. Do you know how hard that is to find?! Ha! I did some more 'googling' and found a graffiti artist out of New Jersey, Toasted. He normally does graffiti for businesses on actual buildings, but he agreed to do a canvas for me. And I have to say, this was a really cool experience. We did it in about 4 steps (graffiti font, colors, background, final review).  

and this is what we ended with....
a 30x40 canvas. and i LOVE!
I also ordered skateboards from Pottery Barn Teen. 
I ordered my fabric from a couple of different Etsy sellers and then my friend Taran made the bedding. 
To the right, we turned two of the skateboards upside down to make shelves.
{obviously the shelves need some love!}
Across from the crib is the dresser. The two pictures of H will be changed out to his sweet face once he arrives. And the mirror will become covered in fishing stickers... because daddy insisted on fishing being added somehow... so I am just giving him his space. ;-) I also might add a changing pad on top of the dresser?!
Just a few more of the room... 

Although there are a few things I would like to find for the room, I LOVE it!
It is 'somewhat' what I had envisioned, but it is turning out to be perfect for me us!
Justin definitely thought I was crazy when I started telling him my ideas from the beginning. I got several eye rolls. But if there is one thing about Justin, he does NOT care what I do in our house. He has two rules... no pink walls and do not ask him to help paint. So he is pretty easy going and trusts what I am doing... or he is just smart enough not to argue with me. :-)

I sure hope Kason loves to sleep in this room!!
