Nursery Tour: Orange and Robots

My nursery (from when I was a baby) was made with love by my mom and my dad. It was a a Care Bear nursery. My dad did wood burnings and paintings of all of the carebears for the walls. My bedding was handmade. The curtains were handmade. My dad even surprised my mom with a beautiful rocking chair that had roses wood-burned all up the back of it. My mom put so much into my room and it was something I always looked forward to doing when I had my children. 
Our first painting job as husband and wife… crazy.
Painting the baby’s room
B put together X’s crib (with very little help)

I knew I wanted bright colors and robots for the theme for X’s room as soon as I found out that he was a boy. I spent forever looking for orange crib sheets (found some for $70, but decided to make them for a lot cheaper instead) and robot decor. In the end I made most everything in his room just because if I did find something it wasn’t baby appropriate or it was too expensive. 
Anyways…enough chatter, on with the pictures!
