{Before & After} Jett’s Nursery

Jett's Before & After Boy's Nursery Room 1

Kirsten, over at 6th Street Design School blog, just finished the cutest makeover for her son, Jett. Her son’s name, and husband’s full time job as a pilot, gave way to the perfect aviation theme for the space; from the wall decals, model airplanes, clustered globes and paper plane garland strung across the ceiling, all of the details are adorable.

Jett's Before & After Boy's Nursery Room 6 DIY Makeover

But Kirsten confides that she didn’t start out with a jet theme in mind: “In designing his nursery I wanted to steer clear of the obvious airplane theme.  But guess what? I just couldn’t do it.  The airplanes kept calling to me.  But in the end I really like how it turned out. If I would have to describe this room in 3 words they would be Adventure, Colorful and Sentimental. It is full of mementos from my husband’s childhood and even has a few items from our travels. The room is the tiniest room on the planet earth so I tried to make sure each item in it meaningful.”
