After I found out I was having a little boy I decided that I wanted a perfect little space for him... something that could grow with him and also something that I could pack up and redecorate in another house, since the military has us moving so frequently. With that being said we live on base housing so my decorating options were somewhat limited. I wish I could of gutted the entire room and started fresh, but I made due with what I had. (Times like these make me want to own my own house.)
While I was home over the summer rummaging through my parents basement, I found a Paul Bunyan book that belonged to my mom when she was a little girl. I instantly got a great idea to create a "Lumberjack" inspired space for my little mister. After doing some research on the web, I found a perfect lumberjack nursery inspiration from Lay Baby Lay. The wheels started turning and eventually the nursery fell perfectly into place. I found some great thrifted items and used some sentimental things in the room like my husband's Boy Scouts uniform from when he was little. I also saved money by making the bedding which ended up being super easy to do! It cost me under $20 total to make. I found that decorating with items like a teething toy, shoes, and burp cloths gave the room a special little touch and was usable down the road. The cardboard bull (I refer to her as Babe the Ox) tied the room together and created a great 3D piece for the wall.
