Nolan's Airplane/Travel Themed Nursery

Posted on the 24 January 2015 by Thenigottothinking @tracyzlesh
I am definitely not an interior decorator, but my favorite projects in our house have been decorating our kid's nurseries (and Andie's big girl room - I will share that soon!).  For Nolan's nursery, I wanted to do something boy-ish and along the theme of airplanes.  I also didn't want it to look too baby-ish because I know most of the decor will stay with him for a long time.  My dad is a pilot of a small airplane and I grew up flying with him, so when I see airplanes, I can't help but think of him.
The furniture & shelving in the nursery is handed down from Andie's nursery with the exception of the crib, bookshelf, and curtains.  Her bookshelf was pretty girlie, and she still loves her crib and wasn't ready to transition into a toddler bed, so we decided to get another crib.  Please excuse some of my empty picture frames... we are still deciding on the pictures to go inside of them. :)
