Nursery Wheels are Turning

Planning a nursery has been thrilling. I didn't get to do this for my other kids due to space constraints. It really is so cool to walk into his totally empty room a dream of what will be in there in a few short months. Of course I say this but I am just in the brainstorming phase. I narrowed down a concept.... robots and rockets.... color scheme.... cobalt blue and vintage primaries.... and I found a bunch of little details that I want to incorperate. It's a nice start. Want to see the ideas?

A dresser refinished and painted in cobalt. Pretty prints for the wall and bookshelf....
Robot and rocket toys and books, if I can find them.

The decor is built around these epic prints I found on etsy. They are vintage rockets and robots. I should get them in the mail today. I can't wait to see them in person and start making more purchases!

 Like an actual radio flyer rocket....
 This bedding from Ikea is inexpensive and does the job of not distracting too much...

 I'm going to paint a mural on one of the walls like this photo. But I will switch up the style and colors a bit. It's a good jumping off point, and shows you where I am going.
(So cool I get to show the before and after and phases in between!)

And for the part I am most excited about... 
I am going to make this! How cool is that?! 

There aren't a whole lot of nurseries out there with this theme.... at least not many that my limited inter-web skills can find. So I am pulling inspiration from Pinterest and blogs like Lay Baby Lay. I can't wait to start purchasing things, painting the walls, and pulling it all together. Who knew a boy's room could be so much fun?
