The Boys' Rooms


I finally finished the nursery!!! Decided to give my toddler a new room and just tweak his old one for the new baby.

 Empty frames awaiting pics of our baby to be!

This is my Pinterest inspired wall. I saw this idea for stuffies and had to try it. Found the baskets at a garage sale for a dollar each. It would be better to find baskets with smaller spaces between the metal frame work though.
 Found these matching storage boxes on clearance at Ikea! 

Three art piece I finally finished for the room. Took forever to get the chevron right with painters tape and a ruler...and then to mix the right green paint! Oh my.... The Bible verse I cut with my silhouette and glued to the primed canvas. I love them as a set.

My friend gave me these lanterns and I used my silhouette to cut out the cute little elephants and I strung them with fishing line. 

Another awesome friend made this elephant pillow as a gift for baby and it is perfect. It is actually exactly what I wanted, like she read my mind....or maybe my pinterest comments :) The chair is Ikea and sadly, it doesn't glide or recline but it just suits the room perfectly.

The vinyl phrase was $1 at the dollar store! Gotta love that. 

I am so blessed to have such generous friends. The white leather ottoman is one of my favorite gifts ever! It is hard to see the stitched detail on top but trust me it is fabulous.
The rug is another pop of green from Ikea!

Here it is with the blinds closed so you can see the awesome banner my friend Nicole made for me. I love, love, love it!

This lighting is a little better. The birch wall decals I purchased on E-bay for $50 including shipping. The owls are just paper I cut using my Silhouette machine. The book shelves are actually picture ledges from Ikea. I saw this idea for them on Pinterest of course :)

Another Ikea purchase. I love all the Expedit units they sell.
 I am awaiting another picture ledge to put the art work up on the wall.

I painted this canvas by mixing the paint as I went and then cut out the letters with my Silhouette. Finally I glued them on with Mod Podge and then gave it another coat on top to give it a glossy finish. I love how it turned out.

 This mobile was made by the same friend who made the banner. Is it not the coolest thing?!

Found this owl at Walmart and spray painted it!

 Yes another gift from the friend who made the elephant pillow for the nursery! I seriously do have the most creative and generous friends :)

I have tons of these logs in my garage. I've been finding lots of uses for them besides burning them in the fireplace.

Stitched a felt "I" on this pillow as it is my toddlers initial.

Found some perfect fabric to make a curtain. Teal on one side and yellow on the other. I am planning to make a bean bag chair out of the same fabric for the room.

Finally, I bought this mirror at a garage sale and painted it to match the room. I like the round shape with the theme of "You are my sunshine." I still need to get it hung up though.
