Thank you so much for your patience and sweet emails and comments about my son’s nursery. This has been the most fun space in our home to transform thus far and today I am going to provide the details for you…of his modern industrial nursery.
When we designed this space, I wanted to keep it simple but also wanted it to be stylish, bright, and fun. Everything in this room has a purpose…whether it be pillows for a reading area, a galvanized bucket for stuffed animal storage, a rocking chair to soothe my little man before bed time, or a few piece of inexpensive art that have meaning behind them and give warmth and style to the space. Everything has its place in his room. We do not have overwhelming amounts of clothes, toys, or extras…it is simple yet comfortable. In the coming weeks I will be sharing how to create a home and life of purpose and I wanted to start with this space.
I hope you enjoy this little tour and please feel free to contact me with questions. Enjoy!

    I just read your about page, and I’m hooked. Your first paragraph in your about page explains EXACTLY what I’ve been trying to figure out for the past 10 months.

    BTW, how did you do the Bead Board/planks/whatever it’s called? Is the insides of the planks painted white? Or is the wall painted white?

    Thanks so much for stopping by! We can continue on this fun journey together now YAY!!!

    The board and batten is just plain wall on the back {ours has very small texturing so it made it easier to install the wood over it} and then we used trim to trim everything out and then painted it all white. I actually paint the wall white FIRST, paint all of the boards, then install the boards, fill nail holes and gives all board faces another 1-2 coats of paint. It is so much faster and still allows for that professional look when finished. Hope this helps! :)
