nursery

It occurred to me the other day that I never showed you the finished product of Marcus’ nursery. And since I got such a great reaction from my friend Bobbi {hi Bobbi!} last night when she saw it for the first time, I figured that the old adage “better late than never” would work in my favor. So, here you go:

{this little guy is on the door leading into his room}I wanted to find a vintage globe for this spot, but Luke vetoed that idea straight away. He said he wanted it to be accurate so that it could be an educational tool. He won.

My Aunt Rita {hi Aunt Rita!} embroidered Marcus’ name onto this precious little bib. I wanted to frame it since it’s just the cutest thing ever.

The Deets: The Internet was a fabulous resource in the creation of this room. The stripes and canvas drop-cloth drapes were ideas borrowed from Layla over at The Lettered Cottage. The monogram art above his little book shelf was an idea borrowed from the lovely Emily over at Jones Design Company. I don’t sew so, I found a no-sew pillow cover tutorial here to make the little pillow covers for the rocking chair. Also, I hated every single mobile I found in stores, and I found a make-your-own-mobile tutorial on the interwebs somewhere, but I guess I didn’t save the link, and now I can’t find it. Basically, all you need is some string, one of these guys, and some cute little wood shapes that you can find at any craft store and viola! You have a mobile.

Have any questions on stuff I didn’t cover? Ask away!
