Biker Baby Nursery Part 1



YES!!

I have finally {finally} started working again on Harrison's room! My trip to Goodwill really got the ball rolling and with a little help from El Guapo aka the Hubbs, I was able to put up the shelves that I painted this week.

Now it all started with some brainstorming if you remember back to {this post}, where I finally came up with a theme for little H's room. After some collecting and thrifting and painting and pure inspiration (I'm really thrilled with my jacket idea), I finally pushed myself to get things
going.

So here are the shelves all finished and hung up:



I am so lucky to have such cool Grandparents. The motorcycle signs belonged to my Grandpa and I love their vintage vibe! He collected these among many other really cool things.



The motorcycles on this shelf also belonged to my grandpa.




And here is my absolute favorite part...










Check out the biker baby (okay more like toddler but whatev) jacket:




I know you probably thought that it would be this huge thing that was so hard to put together but it was literally hang the frame and then hang the jacket in the center of the frame.

I don't care, I love how it looks!


And then there's this awesome sign that my Sister-in-law Clarisa made for me. Seriously! She just came up with it after she found out that I liked the saying.





This book and motorcycle again were my Grandpa's. I'm telling you, coolest grandparents with the coolest stuff!




And as for that other basket? It found its way over here to hold some extra blankets, books and snuggly animals:




Now I put this post down as part one because while I may have made some progress there are still things to consider.

Such as this big empty wall that is in need of some letters {courtesy of my other Sister in Law Camille once I get a hold of her):


I also need to find or make some curtains for the window and I really need to work on a bed set or something.

Anyways, I think I'm pretty happy with how the room has turned out so far. What do you think?

I love all the little different things you did in the room Bekah! It really personalizes your home and makes it unique. The little motorcycle touches are definitely sweet and adds a theme to the room.

p.s. thanks for giving me feedback on the Weekend Max Series. It really helps.

Cheers! Now following you Rambles with Reese

It looks great! I love that you added the signs and motorcycles from your grandpa. I bet they'll be very special to your little man when he gets older too!
