Ollie's room


This was Matt's nursery set when he was a baby. I know that these aren't the best pictures but they were taken in the attic. The second picture is of the end of the crib. There is also a changing table which Matt didn't photograph. Now my question for the bloggers and readers is... should we use it? We are unsure. Missy says yes and I usually agree with her taste. That's the only opinion we have gotten so far. Please let me know what you think. Is it retro cool or just too groovy (as Kendra would say)? Thanks!!

I think it would be way very cool to use his stuff. Especially if it is all in as good of shape as these pictures look.

Is it lead paint? You can't use it if it's lead paint! :)Seriously, I like it! I like old made new again though. In fact, Bruce and I still are using the bedroom furniture from when I was a kid. All 5 pieces! Someday Ollie will feel very honored that he had Daddy's old crib. It might be a far away someday, but someday!

i can't believe you're so unsure about such an obvious choice - use it!

Love it.

Nathan has Greg's old furniture and thinks it's very cool. Although his is the kinda boring stained wood type. Whatever works!

The chew marks on the furniture...the obvious Lead paint...and the overall impact that living in the same room with this would have on a child's psyche... explain everything we need to know about Matt.

Use it...but replace the apples with little Korean Flag's...just a thought...
