Most of my creative juices are spent painting furniture and decorating my home and booth space. But occasionally I pull out the sewing machine.
You may remember that my daughter recently found out she's having a BOY! (you can read about her gender reveal party here).
So we spent spring break decorating the nursery!
Here's a "before" shot.
Yep, boring beige.
So the daughter and mother-in-law painted the room a soft blue-gray.
Meanwhile, I was chained to the sewing machine. Megan picked bold, large scale patterns for the room so I did big blocks of color on the dust ruffle, bumper, and curtain.
Isn't this fun?
Her hubby was out of town so we put the crib together ourselves. Look what three women, an allen wrench, and 30 minutes can do!
Megan decided she wanted a banner over the crib with Jay's name on it. So, I pulled out the Silhouette and this is what we whipped up.
It was time for the fun to begin. Let's pull it all together and decorate! Megan found this cool metal car at Hobby Lobby to hang over the crib.
I couldn't decorate a room without some vintage finds. We hung this cool hand-made plane from the ceiling.
I found this adorable red chair in an antique shop and a friend gave me the vintage Playskool car.
We brought in this free (yes, FREE) dresser and Megan hung shelves and pictures to complete the look.
(I know it's not a great picture. This was taken with a cell phone.)
There are still some finishing touches needed, but it's looking like a room fit for a BOY!
