DIY black and white nursery

Maxwell is oh, 5 months old, and I’m finally getting around to sharing all of the deets about my favorite room in the house, the nursery! If you’re hopping over from Bliss at Home, Hi! Thanks for stoping by… her black, white, and gold living room blows me away! I’m participating in a Home Tours: Favorite Room Edition today that is organized by the lovely and very talented White Buffalo Styling Co!

Back to my favorite room, I’ve shared tons of tutorials and pictures on Instagram of the nursery, but this post has it all… links to tutorials, source list, and all of the room deets! If you’re new here, you can check out these posts leading up to baby Maxwell: Spilling the beans and 10 nursery must haves. You can also see our gender reveal party, family DIY pregnant Halloween costume, my pregnant tacky Christmas sweater, maternity pictures, birth announcements, and tons of adorable current pictures of him on instagram!

My mom and I did this room together! We DIY-ed a ton of things and put a lot of love into it! The anticipation of a nursery is so much fun! I’m happy I love it, because we really do spend a ton of time in here… We sleep, eat, change diapers, and play here too!
