I realized recently that I had done quite a few posts about my plans and projects for Bean’s woodland themed nursery but never actually showed the final result! I may have been a little distracted with a newborn baby on my hands… 🙂 Sooooo here we go:
Almost everything that you see in the room was handmade by me (minus the crib bedding and bumper pads, I still don’t know how to use a sewing machine…yet…). You can see how I created the pennant banner here.
My prized find on a trip this past July to visit my brother up in Grand Forks. Found it at a wonderful store called Gordmans, wish they had one around where I live.
This thing took me FOREVER. Yes-I handmade the entire thing, including making my own patterns for the felt creatures from my wonderful “Give a Hoot” Cricut cartridge. Unfortunately I was at a stage in my pregnancy where I had no motivation so I didn’t document the process along the way 🙁
I bought these cute little alphabet cards from a shop off Etsy called Ink Tree Press, you can read more here. I created the clothespin line by taking inspiration from photos I’ve seen on other blogs and making it my own.
I don’t really have a good shot of the mural behind the crib, probably because it’s being covered up by a crib and art hehe, but that was also done by yours truly. You can read more about that huge process here.
The little artwork on either side of the window was also made by me with that wonderful Cricut of mine. You can read more about that here.
This is the “boring corner”. I’m sure eventually a dresser will be put along the left side wall. I made the pom poms hanging from the ceiling, you can read about it here. I also redid the brown shelf, which I didn’t have the motivation to document either. It started out as a thrift store wooden frame that I spray painted with Oil Rubbed Bronze (amazing color, by the way) and glued scrapbook paper behind the tiny squares. The mural art on the left (which as since been replaced by some owl art that my sister bought me) was also a creation of mine. I made a tutorial of how to recreate it here.
Our story time chair 🙂 And in the very early days, the chair I would sit and try to rock Bean to sleep, which never really totally worked. That stinker didn’t end up sleeping well until almost a month ago when she learned how to suck her thumb! I also (surprise, surprise) made the name letters hanging above the closet.
Well, there you have it! I apologize that the photos aren’t of better quality. I’m still relying on my simple point and shoot Canon Powershot. I’m dreaming of the days when I own a quality DSLR…
