Hey guys! It's been forever since I've blogged... I know, I suck. But for the past oh 9 months or so... I've had nothing but babies on the brain so I haven't been all that interesting to talk to. Haha. With my first two babies, I'd never bothered to have an actual "nursery", so I decided it would be fun to make an effort this time around with baby #3. Most of it was DIY. It was nice to have things to keep me busy and also quite low cost. I'll also reveal the baby's name for everyone since we've been keeping it to ourselves until now just because. Here it is!
book I read years ago and that Jason agreed to it!
As for the decor, I got the wooden letters off of Etsy and painted them silver, and I learned how to fold origami cranes so I could make that mobile. Isn't it neat?? I also sewed the crib skirt and blanket with some cute origami animal printed fabric.
I sewed up this guy last night. He's my quick imitation of an Ugly Doll (since I just cant justify spending $20 on a real one). Isn't he cute? hehe
We redid the chair in the left photo. I found the pretty blue slipcover at Target and my dear sweet Jason converted it into a swiveling rocker using the method I found here. It was cheaper than buying a glider, and it was great to make use out of an ugly but comfy chair we had sitting around.
I also redid a beat up dresser I found on craigslist, painting it and adding some new knobs.
I did most of the art on the gallery wall myself, painting old frames and the shelf white. The "Love" canvas I found at walmart, and the mirror and hooks are from Hobby Lobby. The lamp is from Target. I sewed the changing pad cover and cloth wipes. My favorite is the "V" button art which was really fun to make. I just printed out and traced the V, and filled it in with buttons, beads, sparkly gems and charms glued on with craft glue.
