Elephant Nursery Tour

Kelly's Korner is touring nurseries today, and Reese's nursery happens to be my favorite room in our home. Welcome to his elephant nursery!

The day I found out I was having a boy, my mom and I looked at this bedding from Pottery Barn Kids. I love elephants and I knew it was exactly what I wanted, but it almost sold out before I got my hands on it. We were able to get everything but the elephant sheets.


Since Reese came 1 month early, his nursery wasn't quite ready yet. My mom and her friend/boss, Diana, put up the quilt for me before Reese came home from the hospital. My dog is a bit territorial and nipped Diana on the neck. Sorry again, Diana!


Here's the changing station, where Reese kicks and screams when I change his diaper. My friend, Michelle, made the cute "R" painting and my mom painted the antique dresser.


The bookshelf holds some of my books from when I taught 4th grade and others we received as gifts. Reese likes to tear and wrinkle the pages, so I had to put some of them away for now. The fabric covered board holds birth announcements and photos of Reese's friends. I got it at the Pottery Barn Outlet for $4. I love the elephant lamp.


Here's my sweet little boy and his elephant. He doesn't like to sleep in his crib. Maybe he doesn't like all the elephants as much as I do!
