Maxwell's Room!

Remember when Maxwell was in the hospital and my SIL, Hollie was up with him every day? They were a few hours away from home, so one weekend, Luke, Mom, Dad, Husby and I (and Levi) all got together and completely did the nursery - top to bottom! We painted and decorated. Decorated and painted.

And painted. And painted. Did I mention we painted?

Here is sweet little Maxwell.


And here is his room!


The theme is Where the Wild Things Are.


These pictures are actual prints from the book. Mom and I went to Hobby Lobby and got them framed.


Do you notice what the pillow says? Our cousin found that for him! So sweet!


The Ultimate Glider. Ahhhh.


See the lines on the walls? Well, they were brutal. Total nightmare. But so worth it! :)




It turned out just the cutest thing ever and I was so glad we got to help do that for them. Nurseries are so much fun!!!

Maxwell's suits him well. :)

I am a modern day homemaker with a passion for family, cooking, celebrating, decorating, travel, and memory making! The Lord has blessed me with the desires of my heart in my husband and our two sons. We recently built our dream home and cultivating a loving and happy haven for my family is where I find so much joy.


  1. Wow, what an amazing nursery! And the pics are stunning as well!

    So glad little Maxwell is doing well :)

  2. That is just the sweetest surprise ever! I've never seen that theme before in a bedroom - it's fabulous because it's not too "baby" and can easily become his "big boy" room.

    Everything looks so great and the stripes are awesome. I like them better than verticals. I wonder if they are MORE difficult than verticals or if just stripes in general are a migraine In themselves...

    What a great family you have {and are} to do that. =)

  3. Wow, the nursery turned out amazing! Max is such a lucky little guy to have a great family!!

    Even though the stripes were challenging, it was well worth it because it looks fantastic!

    I'm so happy to see max doing well!

  4. OH how cute!! I am sure your SIL and her husband, (AND MAXWELL!) felt very blessed! Good work

  5. That is such a cute nursery! I love it! You all did such a great job. Where The Wild Things Are is one of Cannon's favorite books!

  6. You guys should go into business and decorate nurseries :)

  7. Awesome color. Love the chucks, too! I'm so glad he's doing well. He's getting so big!!

  8. I love the nursery! Great colors and fab stripe placement. :)

  9. hands down, one of the best nurserys I've ever seen! (since Levi's!!)

    The crib is fabulous!!

  10. Such a great nursery, that crib is amazing!

  11. He is getting to be so big! I bet they just love to see him grow. His nursery is amazing. That pillow is perfect!!

  12. I painted some similar lines in my son's room and it was SO annoying. The final look is great and looks amazing, but I doubt I would ever try that again!! Max's room looks great, you guys must have worked so hard. I'll bet they were thrilled!

  13. InCREDible! Agreed that you should go into business designing nurseries! Can I ask where the glider is from?

  14. Turned out FANTASTIC!!! After we painted Levi's nursery in stripes, I saw a commercial for a green tape called Frog tape. It's made for textured walls; suppose to make perfect lines when painting. We'll try it next time.

  15. His room is seriously such an amazing nursery! Y'all did a fabulous job.

  16. What a gorgeous nursery...I love WTWTA! :)

  17. I love it. I told my hubby that when we get pregnant that I wanted to do the babies room in "Where the WIld Things Are." since it was one of my favorite childrens books. He said I would scare the baby and my mom agreed. I love how you incorporated it into your room. I might even show my mom and the hubby so I can say.." Na, Na I was right. It could be done."

  18. I love the theme. So did you guys come up with the design/plan or did they already have things lined out how they wanted it?

  19. Hey Erin it's Luke

    Hollie and I designed the nursery in it's entirety
    several months prior to tiny's birth. I just asked the fam for help painting it because I've never painted a room before. Darins an awesome painter and taught us all how to. I told him exactly what we wanted and he knew exaxtly what to do. Mom and I spent about 14 hours assembling furniture, hanging pics and everything else so we could surprise Hollie. It blew her mind apart. Mr. Maxwell enjoys it quite thoroughly.


  20. Was wondering where they got that Max pillow. My nephew is named Max and I'd love to get one for him!

  21. So cute! He looks so much like Holly!

  22. Lori, I so disagree! I think he looks just like Luke. The nursery is incredible. What a great bunch of people to do that for them.

  23. Awww, I've been Reading for a while now but just had to comment & say how lovely the nursery is! It was so nice of you all to surprise your SIL like that!

  24. So cute! I love that Maxwell has a Max room.

  25. Wow! It turned out great! So glad to hear Maxwell is doing well. :)

  26. What an adorable nursery. Awesome theme!! YAY for the little man doing better!
