I become quickly engulfed with his new red tractor nursery theme. My husband works at Equipment Technologies, which produces shiny red tractor sprayers. Therefore, the tractors had to be red- no John Deere Green in this house.
I really love the way it turned out.
I'm waiting for Mark to raise the crib bed this weekend- we used it with Delaney so it was dropped. The adorable decal is from New Wave Signs from etsy. My sweet sister-in-law sent us this super soft blanket with his name stitched on it and I can't wait to wrap him up in it. I'm sorry the rug is wrinkled and off centered and YES I will get outlet covers before I put a baby in there.
The book shelves are spice racks from IKEA (Thank you, Pinterest). At $3.99 each, we couldn't build shelves for cheaper. I slapped a coat of red acrylic paint on them and hung them up. I found the tractor blueprint on zulily and it is my favorite piece in the room.
I used this blanket as my color inspiration- I wanted all of the colors in the blanket to be present in the room. It is super soft and really well made. I found it on etsy from First Crush Designs.
The upholstery on my old garage sale glider was pretty beat up, so rather than repairing it, I bought a new blanket and pillow. I NEEDED the pillow because of the red tractor. It is also from etsy, of course- the shop is Polka Dot Apple, and she has a ton of super cute designs.
Mark brought this home from work, since it was difficult for me to find tractor "sprayer" toys and decals. Not everyone wants a pesticide spraying machine sticker on their baby's walls, but I love incorporating what Mark does into the baby's room.
And now...all I need is a baby and the room will be complete. We have three weeks and counting and I am definitely counting...
