Our "adventure" themed nursery

We are officially ready to welcome baby brother into his room! 
I had WAY too much fun designing this nursery. 
These we're Sam's first shoes and I am so glad that we saved them.

These are images of some of the 7 wonders of the world. (Machu Pichu, the Pyramids, The Great Wall, Jesus in Rio and the Taj Mahal)

On the wall opposite of the crib is a map of the world. (No, it's not perfect but it was not easy painting this freehand! I am actually very happy with how it turned out. So don't be complaining about how giant Cuba is, please.) The hearts represent places where our family members were born, including our baby boy!

These little suitcases are perfect for holding blankets and toys. 
 I painted this canvas to look like "Paradise Falls" from the movie "UP" since it has a travel theme and is one of our favorite movies. 
The hot air balloons are made from construction paper and wire. I love how these turned out. (Thanks to Pinterest!)
 We are so happy that we have loads of hand-me-downs from big brother. Our amazing birthmother also sent us a box full of baby clothes so we are so prepared!
 Now, all we need is our little boy!

I'm in love with your nursery! Do you know the name of the gray paint color you used for the mural wall?
