Hey again everyone! I told you in the last post that I’d get some new pics of to show you Sawyer’s room now that its all done (13 months after his birth…don’t judge me). Actually, its been done for a while I’m just slow at posting. Theres really not TOO much that looks different from the nursery posts before this one, just a few added details that I think pull it all together. Anyway, here it is. All DONE. 🙂
Please ignore the stuff on the floor. Sawyer was in here while I was taking these pics and was dragging all kinds of stuff out. At least it shows how the room looks in reality!
The white Jenny Lind crib and changing table set I got off of Craigslist for $125. The vinyl wall mural I found here.
I found the empty frame at Hobby Lobby in the clearance section for $8. I made the banner with a template and cardstock and chipboard letters I covered in scrapbook paper. Here is a template you can use to make your own. (Just cut the little corners off when you fold the top over your string).
Above are some close-ups of Sawyer’s bunting name banner.
The woodsy vinyl wall mural totally MADE this room. Since I wasn’t spending much on the rest of the room decor, I “splurged” on it and got it for around $100 or so. I could pick the colors I wanted and I think it turned out FABULOUS against the teal wall. (p.s. Sawyer is so cute rockin his new mowhawk!)
A tree branch made the perfect curtain rod for this space. I also used a tree branch for the DIY mobile below.
This mobile was SUPER EASY to throw together. A tree branch+wooden cutouts in woodsy shapes from the craft store+orange craft paint+hemp string and a hook screw= a graphic naturalist simple baby mobile. You can also buy a little hand drill in the wood pieces section of the craft store for easy hole drilling into small wood pieces like this.
The lamp above was made from an old shade I had leftover from a client’s house, and some extra orange and white fleece from other projects. My little sis helped me cut out a bunch of “leaf shapes” alternating between regular scizzors and pinking shears. Then I simply sewed them together like a long garland right down the center of each. I then cut varying lengths off of the “leaf garland” and hot glued them to the lamp shade, being sure to cover the entire shade and vary the lengths that dangled. It turned out pretty cute I think and was an easy way to add fun, whimsical lighting.
Sawyer’s baby quilt was another DIY project. I had found a towel at Walmart for $4 that was the PERFECT color and then decided to applique birch trees and leaves onto it with scrap fabric from other projects for the room. Then I simply bound and backed the entire “towel quilt” with white fleece. It has held up really well through several washings and ties in the wall mural nicely.
Below is the block printed bird pillow I made. Martha Stewart has a great tutorial on block printing using Speedy-Carve blocks here.
And below again is another pillow I hand stamped. That tutorial can be found here.
I also made this DIY fabric wall art. That tutorial is here.
And above is a pic of the white $4 thrifted antlers (I sprayed them white with high gloss spray paint), and a photo set I took and framed (got the white frames at the Dollar Store), and also a little owl I made with a hand towel and scrap fabric. I love this little vignette.
So there you go! This is my cheap and easy DIY’d, aqua, orange, brown, and white, vintage modern, refurbished, thrifted, woodland creatures, little boys nursery. Phew. Hope you like it and can go and DIY one for your little man (or woman) ! Happy crafting!
