Kohen’s Shark Nursery!

shark-themed-nursery

Nursery decorating might be my favorite!  I LOVED decorating Logan’s mermaid themed room and I was so excited to have a boy to do a more masculine bedroom.   I always like to go with a “non-baby” themed room so that the room can grow with the child into their elementary years.  For Kohen, we decided to go with a shark theme since he and Logan share a bathroom it would somewhat go with mermaids.

A common nursery paint design is stripes and with doing a shark themed stripes were really an easy choice for a nautical component.   But I wanted to do something different so I went with a modified pallet wall!   This was SO easy and simple to put together (well for my husband and friend to put together.)   The hardest part was transporting the wood from Home Depot to our house.  lol.   I also went with a light gray as a base color, making the distressed wood “pop.”   See original tutorial here, although I did not use her same wood staining process.

The dresser and armoire is a vintage future set passed down in the O’Rourke family.   Originally yellow and purchased by the mob, yes THE LAS VEGAS MOB, was given to my mom as a baby shower gift.   This set was refinished in the 90’s by my grandmother to go in my room and now it is in Logan’s and Kohen’s room.

My FAVORITE nursery tradition, as we did this in Logan’s room too, is to have every family member paint a small canvas print to add to the nursery.  I love that this adds a little personalization to the room and you can guess what each family member painted–and if you can’t guess they write notes to the baby on the back.  Once the baby is born, we add in their footprint design.   You can see Kohen’s foot on the bottom right.   Note: Logie’s artwork on the bottom left.
