Nolan's Airplane/Travel Themed Nursery

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. :)

Dresser/Changing Table: Larkin Hi-lo Changing Table 
Rocking Chair & Ottoman: Wingback Convertible Rocker & Ottoman 
Side Table for nursery chair: Sleigh Side Table 

Window Coverings:
White Sheer Accent Curtain: Voile Pole Pocket Drape 

Bookcase Decor:
Decor is from Home Goods, Marshalls, and gifts from family & friends

Wall Shelves & Decor:
White Shelves: Crown Molding Ledge (these were a wedding gift to us!)
Vintage Airplane Framed Set  gift from my mom from Pottery Barn Kids
All of the decor on the shelves is from Home Goods, Marshalls, Michaels or gifts from family & friends.
The soft airplane rocker is from gilt.

Paint: Behr from Home Depot, color: Silver Sateen

We still have a few loose ends to tie up, but it will probably never be completely done :)
