Zane's room

This week's edition of "Show Us Where You Live Friday" at Kelly's Korner is a nursery tour, so I thought I would participate since I don't think I ever posted pics of Zane's room.

First, I found the bedding I liked in the Posh Tots magazine, but then had it custom made from New Arrivals. I love the blue, brown, and white.

Then I found a classic iron crib from Bratt Decor that can be used for a boy or a girl and can't be chewed on when he gets teeth! The four posters can be removed or a canopy can be added to them. It also converts to a toddler bed.

I found this changing table in Posh Tots but then found it for a much better price at another location. Thanks to the in-laws for this one! The changer on the top also comes off so it can be used in another room later.

At first I didn't want any sort of theme to the room. Somehow the room has exploded with monkeys! A fellow Ouachita grad, Elaine, painted my canvas and it turned out perfect!

My friend Whitney gave me these blocks that spell out Zane's name. Elaine also made them!
Of course I had to have letters that spell out his name to hang above the crib. I found a lady that custom paints these in an ebay store. They match perfectly and I love the monkeys!

My brother found this tiny little rocker at my parents' house. It was mine when I was a little girl, but was an ugly green color. He recovered it to match the room. What a sweet (and handy) brother!

View from the hallway
Another view
And yet another view
And here's the precious little boy who never sleeps in this room!

What a great nursery! I love the monkeys and all the custom stuff. Cute crib, too. I haven't seen one like that. Of course, Zane is the cutest thing of all though.

OMG!!! His room is soooo precious, elegant, and warm! I LOVE IT!! You did a GREAT JOB! I always wonder what I would do with a boy's room since I only have girls :) Thanks for sharing. By the way- I found your blog through Kelly's Korner blog. I am visiting from AZ. Have a great day!

I love your blog! We live in Pennsylvania now, but I have such fond memories of Mr. Zane. He was such a precious man and what a wonderful namesake. Congrats on your beautiful family! Mrs. H
