A Room for Baby Maddux

I saved some of my baby furniture and hoped one of the kids were going to be able to use it for their baby. I’m so happy Whitney and Ty are able to use it. It has such happy memories for me and I love seeing it in use again. This was Amanda, Emilee, Zachary and Ammon’s bassinet.

The crib was Zach and Ammon’s. It is still in really good shape and didn’t really need anything done to it. I love the bedding Whitney and Ty picked.

The changing table was white (apparently I didn’t care they didn’t match, because I had it with Emilee, Zach and Ammon). Whitney and I bought paint to match the crib the last time I was here.

And then we painted it in their garage, in really cold weather. I took a long warm shower after painting.

It matches the crib perfectly.

The original colors for the room were blue, brown and tan. Red was added later thanks to the inspiration taken from this little puppy.

A red tote was added to the changing table. Whitney bought red material to make the curtains and she’s painting a shelf red.

These pictures were Ammon’s and will tie in nicely with the other decor in the room. We’re going to make an “A” for Airplane picture to go with them.

I can’t believe how lucky we were to find this paint in the color Whitney wanted for Maddux’s dresser. We found it at Lowe’s when we were in St. George over Spring Break. I don’t have a before picture of the dresser, but it was a dark walnut stain.

And here it is now. Don’t you love it?! Ty sanded and painted it. I had seen the drawer pull idea in a magazine (I don’t remember which one) and suggested it to them.

Doesn’t it look perfect for a little boys room? I love the detail on the dresser. And they got it for free from a friend.

I think they’ve done a great job, so far. Baby Maddux came about 11 days early so they didn’t get quite finished with everything. They’re going to be moving in about 2 months for Law School. They’ll only be about a half hour from us then and we’re so excited.

Here’s another picture of Maddux, because he’s just so cute.

    As sweet as this room is, the first thing parenting classes now tell parents-to-be is no bumper pads. “Dress the baby warmly and leave the crib naked” is the rule of thumb now.

    What a lucky little boy. That dresser is fabulous. The bedding is perfect too. But… you have to admit, that last picture takes the cake! He’s adorable.

    What a precious, precious baby! I have three sons ages 7, 5 and 2, so I’m partial to boys. 🙂 The dresser is beautiful … my favorite part of the room. And all of my kids used bumper pads.

    who is that sweet baby? oh yeah he is mine 🙂 Thank you so much for all of your help I absolutely LOVED having my mom come and help me for almost a week. Love you

    Really looks good, the dresser with rope pulls is perfect 🙂

    Beautiful baby! I have to tell you the pic of the bassinet brought tears to my eyes…I HAD THE SAME EXACT ONE for my kids (they’re 9 and 11 now). When my son turned 2yo he moved into a big boy bed w/ a dresser we painted blue and used the same kind of rope/chording for drawer pulls! What great memories for me! Thanks for sharing 🙂

  • Gina @ The Shabby Chic Cottage May 6, 2010, 2:31 am

    He is adorable! The room is darling… but the baby… SO PRECIOUS!
