I mentioned in my post about my son’s first birthday party that I had decorated his nursery in a pirate theme. Would you like to see a few pictures? I don’t know about you, but I just love decorating my home. The thrill of deciding how a certain room is going to look and then the hunt of finding just the right pieces to make everything come together perfectly…*sigh, it’s just plain fun for me!
It all started when I found the most adorable pirate bedding set.
And if you’re a pirate, you simply have to have a TREASURE MAP! I was thrilled when I found this hand painted treasure map on Etsy. So cute!
It’s fun to see a room come together. You can see that I painted wooden letters for his name and the curtains are a rich chocolate brown (bonus: closing the curtains and having the extra layer of the blinds really keeps out the sun =a baby that sleeps better and longer!) You can’t see it in this picture but there’s a red wooden sign above the window that reads “Red Sky at Night Sailors Delight.”
Instead of a changing table I opted for the kind that sits on top of the dresser. I found a little “treasure” chest to put on the dresser to keep all of the diaper supplies in. I liked the round mirror I found because it reminded me of a port hole on a ship–kinda “pirate-like” right? And instead of an expensive gliding rocking chair, I got a simple outdoor rocker. It works just fine for us and when we no longer need it in the nursery I can put it on the patio!
Of course Preston’s room looks a little different today; I had to purchase another bookshelf to hold more toys and some things have been moved around a bit. I’m trying my best to keep the accumulation of toys to a minimum but this little guy’s grandparents sure do like to spoil him!
Well, now I’m all in the mood to redecorate something…hmmm, maybe a trip to Hobby Lobby? You just never know what you will find! Have a great day.
