Layton's bedroom

Well finally after a lot of hard work by my Mom, Matt and I, Layton's room is almost finished. With about 4 weeks until my due date I am getting very anxious to meet our new little man and show him his room. I love the colors....the colors in the pictures are hard to see but the room has a very calm feeling. I used brown and a very light blue/green (on the walls) for the decor. The fabrics are a cute stripe mixed with a plaid and a toile fabric. My Mom was so sweet to make all of his bedding....right down to the cotton sheets. I had Layton's initials monogrammed on the fabric by a sweet mom at my school. I think his bedding turned out great!
I had such a fun time decorating his room....decorating is one of my favorite things to do so it was so much fun to redo another room in the house. Matt did such a great job on the dresser and the shelf in his room. We got the shelf from his Mom (I think the shelf was used in Matt's room as a child) Matt sanded down the shelf and then painted it to match the trim in the room. The dresser we bought off Craigslist for a steal and then Matt refinished the top of the dresser to match the stain on the bed. We love Layton's bed....it will grow with him as he grows older.

Layton's rocker is so comfy. We got it at a little baby boutique in Addison and it rocks and turns which is so nice. Matt did not want a small rocking chair...he wanted something that he could sit in and be comfortable.....plus we can use the chair later for other kiddos since the fabric we picked out is so neutral. The little foot stool is one that I am recovering at the moment with the toile fabric...it is an old stool that I love that I got from a yard sale. My Mom once again saved the day and made the table cloths and they look great next to the bed.

Here is the dresser that Matt helped refinish...I love it. I am going to hang some brown picture frames above the dresser but I am waiting for them to go on sale at Hobby Lobby:) I can't wait to fill the picture frames with sweet pictures of Layton.
Well that is just a little tour of Layton's pad:) Hopefully soon I will be able to post pictures of him in his room.
