I knew I wanted to recycle some of Ev’s gear for the our new man’s nursery, mainly his navy crib bedding from Pottery Barn Kids. His gingham blackout curtains would remain and so would all of his white furniture. But it wasn’t until recently that I decided to go with a nautical theme.
Growing up, I took a weekly art class in the basement of an art teacher (shout out to Ms. Shambaugh!) with a few other kids. During these classes I was exposed to different forms of art, various mediums and the freedom to create whatever came to my young mind. In short, it was amazing.
During this time I created many works ranging from ceramic pieces to watercolors to oil-painted canvases. One of these pieces created by my nine year old self was gifted to my grandparents and hung in their spare bedroom in Hays, KS. After my grandma’s passing it has been returned to me and is what I am basing the nursery off of.
