Two years ago, when we found out I was pregnant with Delaney, I knew what I wanted in her room. I was not a pink nursery kind of girl. I wanted yellow and green and I wanted stripes. Eric went a long with it. He figured out a way to make perfect stripes in her room. When he was close to finishing, I just casually mentioned how cute it would be to have polka dots that matched the crib bumper. Eric didn't say anything, which I took to mean, "Are you freaking kidding me? I just painted stripes." But, being the good husband he is, he painted polka dots one day while I was gone (I think he was afraid to anger the beast). I LOVED Delaney's room. Here are some pictures of it (this was in the old house, we haven't done her room in the new one yet):
When we found out we were having a boy, I knew I wanted an airplane room. I found a bumper at Target and Eric found paint to match. I love the vintage airplane look. I knew that I wanted stripes again with pictures of MY dad in the fighters that he used to fly. Of course, Eric delivered. He painted Brody the MOST beautiful room! The sad thing is, we moved when Brody was 4 weeks old. I cried and cried. His room was so pretty and we were leaving it. Eric promised he would paint his room in the new house and that is just what he did. I love his room. I love that Eric put so much time and love into it. I love that it has pictures of MY DAD all over, I just love it. I hope that you like it as much as we do.
BTW... these pictures really don't do it justice. I wish you could see the real thing. I will definitely post pictures of the other rooms as he does them!
