In planning for baby #3, I wasn’t quite sure where to put everyone. Older siblings together? Boys together? Finally I decided to let big sister keep her own room and put both boys together. We’ll know soon enough if this was the right decision but I am so excited about how the room came together!

Henry’s room was in sad shape and had long needed sprucing up. The paint was drab and the room was bare. I asked the fabulous Melissa Ballard to help me out. Best.decision.ever.

We decided on a light blue wall color and orange accents to complement the existing white and brown furniture. I loved her sketches from the get-go.

This dresser is my favorite feature. It was Mark’s growing up and Melissa refinished it and hand painted this herringbone pattern with a gold paint pen.

I also love the photos in the room.

  • The colorful vintage posters over the cribs are $5 prints from The Paper Source in frames from Hobby Lobby (50% off!).
  • The tiny animals on playing cards are from Etsy. Melissa painted two existing frames gold and decoupaged a paper bag onto foam board for a backing.
  • The Henry alphabet print is from MadebyGirl.
  • And the adorable portrait of Henry was taken at Parents Day Out. Don’t you love the felt frame?

Melissa was amazing at making process budget-friendly. We reused an existing rug from Home Goods and kept all of the current furniture. The only thing we bought was another crib from Amazon to match Henry’s crib and a shelf from Home Depot.
