I was beyond excited when the technician said, "boy."
No matter how hard I tried, I couldn't figure out what would be his nursery theme. Then, over dinner while on vacation in Anguilla, Husby mentioned what he thought would make a great theme.
It was perfect!
I present...the new nursery for Baby H.I.T.!
We loved the idea of a nautical nursery, but it seemed cliche and overdone. That's when Husby thought it would be fun to design a pirate-themed nursery, complete with a treasure map mural on the wall. I loved it! It allowed us to create a soothing alcove for our baby that would be a fun enough theme for him to grow into.
Many of the main pieces are from Pottery Barn - fortunately for us, they launched a nautical room about a month after we came up with our theme - talk about perfect timing! The pieces that inspired the mural were three simple canvases I found at HomeGoods for $15.99 a piece. We had them framed and they fit the room perfectly. The ship wheel was a $30 find from Amazon! And we recycled the Serena & Lily glider we used in Babes room - we just re-stuffed the back cushion.
Being a deal girl, I was super excited to tell Husby that our nursery came in WAY UNDER BUDGET! We used Amex points for furniture, my dad and mom helped hang the curtain rods, and many of the room accents were found at places like HomeGoods and online sites like Zulily. We pieced together our bedding set since we couldn't find something that matched the theme and it saved us a ton.
Now that the nursery and attic are done, I'm busy
