Planning and decorating the nursery was how I dealt with morning sickness; whenever I was feeling particularly terrible, I’ll work on it and it helped take my mind off it (now that the nursery is done and I still have morning sickness, I buy adorable baby clothes when I need a distraction, this kid is going to have quite the wardrobe).
I started with a Pinterest board, and went from there. We started decorating the nursery long before we knew we were having a boy, so it’s fairly gender neutral. We re-purposed some furniture we had (Adam’s childhood desk, the big arm chair and a couple book shelves), and everything else was found or bought. All the textiles in the room (curtains, crib sheets, quilts and knitted blankets) were lovingly made by family members, mostly Adam’s mum.
Below is where to find most everything we bought for the room, mainly the art work; I spent a lot of time tracking it down from non-sourced Pinterest images, so hoping to make this easier for anyone who might be interested.
