The Boy’s Room

Back at the beginning of the year, I shared Landon’s nursery that Dave and I decorated/renovated together here
Since then, we have been making room for Max and changing things around a little. Landon now has a big boy bed! Some sweet friends from our Life Class gave us the bed AND another family gave us the Pottery Barn sports themed bedding. We LOVE it and it goes perfectly with the room.

We moved the crib to the other side of the room for Max and left it as a “toddler bed” since we are not sure if Max will be used to sleeping a crib or not. When we first arrive home, he will sleep in a pack and play in our room until we transition him into his room.

I painted Max’s letters to match Landon’s name above his bed. And the wall art?! I made it out of fabric and cornstarch glue! One of these days I will try to write about the super easy peasy process. I love it because it can easily be removed one day. From the pictures, it looks like I painted it on the wall. I actually used leftover fabric scraps from Landon’s crib bedding and curtains to make it. Do you recognize the design?! It is the same one we used on the t-shirts for our fundraiser. Here is a closer look at it

On the other side of the crib we have a little “reading corner” with the kid sized rocking chair I found at the Habitat for Humanity ReStore and gave a little facelift.


I still have a few more “dreams” for the room, but for now it is all ready for our Max!
We still do not have travel dates, but are hoping and praying to have them by the end of this week. Please join us in praying that we will receive travel approval by Friday so that we will be able to travel in September. If we receive it this week, we will try for a 9/15 Gotcha Day! We would love to have Max in our arms before his 2nd birthday on the 26th. Thanks everyone for your prayers and t-shirt purchases. We are so grateful for each and every one of you.
