nursery with painted white floors

Thursday, August 12, 2010

the nursery.  it turned out very sweet!  every morning when i get
little dubs out of bed i tease and call him little prince charming in his royal room :)

the chandelier is from a little antique shop close to our town.  i think
it really makes the room....along with

.....the floors!  we painted them white.  against our builder's desire. and i am 
so glad we did!  they started as raw 5" oak floors.  we added 2 coats of primer and white porch paint.

only 2 coats of primer so that the some boards would naturally yellow.  i love the look!

dancy made little dubs this dick and jane pillow :)

the photo collage includes pictures of all the kiddos when they were 2 weeks old.  we are missing 
one on the right though :(  we havn't been able to find it since the move.

favorite books and toys are essential to any nursery :)


  1. Beautiful! Although I think my favorite thing is the sweet blanket on the side of the crib! It looks very vintage ... did you make it? Is it a passed down item? Oh and I don't know why, but the John Deere book made me smile:). It just sort of stuck out to me.
    And the photos ... what a blessed family! What a blessed baby to have such a wonderful family:). God is so very good!

  2. Adorable, babies rooms are so fun to decorate!

  3. I LOVE white painted floors!!!!! Some day in some house I will win this debate with my husband:)

  4. So cute and peaceful. I too have painted floors, old not new though. I really love them. It's been 5 years and I'm ready to put on a fresh coat... not even going to change the color!

  5. So beautiful! What paint color did you use for the beadboard? Is it vapor trails like in the rest of the house? I am about to paint my family room that color, I googled it and found your lovely blog. Just a gorgeous house, you must be in heaven.
