Baby Boy's Adventure Nursery Mood Board

I had BIG dreams!

When 2017 rolled around I had one project in mind.  I was ready to tackle our Guest Bedroom redo.  I was going to make it a huge spring project.  So many fun ideas, including using some classic granny-chic floral wallpaper.  Trust me guys, it was going to look great! 

Then February blew in and we got that big fat positive, you know those two pink lines, meaning there was a baby in our near future.  Ok, that wasn't a huge issue, I quickly reworked the renovation ideas to add in a crib while keeping this totally girly theme.  I was secretly hoping for a little girl just so this room would work out.

Then God said NOPE!  And handed me a little boy.  Chris is over the moon and I'm beyond happy to add a little boy and balance to our family.  But that meant I had to scrap all of my ideas for our guest room.  I just wasn't putting pink floral wall paper in a little boys room.  Here I am six months later and I finally have a plan for our nursery/guest bedroom makeover.

I was starting this project with all of my big pieces of furniture.  We were given a green bed and would use the crib and dresser from Aspen's nursery.  So my color scheme was already in place.  How classic and fun blue and green would be for a boy.

The hard part was the specifics and keeping this room nursery themed while also providing a space for guests to stay. 

I started collecting things I loved for this room and soon an adventure theme was born.  Wes' room will have any and everything from arrows and mountains to airplanes and globes. 

To bring a bit of light and airiness to the room, I went with the paint color of Mink Frost from Valspar.  Thanks to all your input over on IG.  We spent this past weekend tackling the painting.

To tie these two separate living areas into one room, I will use this rug I purchase on Amazon Prime Day to give the room flow and cohesiveness.  The key to this trick is placing the rug where all key elements will be on it.  I've also considered adding a fun sheep skin rug under the crib for a nice layered look.

Make sure to continue following along as I plan to update you on the nursery/guest room progress as we try to cram it all in before baby (or bed rest) arrives.
