Despite the fact that Finn has yet to sleep a single wink in his nursery, it’s one of my favorite spaces in our entire house.
When we found out we were having a boy, it didn’t take long for me to start daydreaming about decorating a boy’s nursery. Since Aven’s room is so girly and whimsical, I was looking forward to going in a totally different direction.
Brandon and I knew we wanted a feature wall where the crib was, so that was our starting point. And then after seeing this amazing nursery on Pinterest, we decided on a rustic woodsy theme, using mostly neutral colors. (I purposely steered clear from elements that make the room look too baby-ish so we can keep most of it for a big boy room later on down the road.)
I am SO happy with how it turned out! And props to my husband for building that awesome wall.

Just like every other room in my house, it’s still a work in progress. The dresser is beat up but it has sentimental value, as it belonged to Brandon’s step-mom Joy, who we lost just over a year ago. I plan to paint it at some point. I’m also on the lookout for the right lamp to put next to the glider, as well as a way to incorporate Finn’s name somewhere in the room. Oh, and we still need to raise the crib mattress back up from when Aven used it! #oops
