As I was taking pictures of the re-do that we did this weekend, I realized that I never posted pictures of Luke’s nursery once we completed it last year. (And, in case you are thinking it already…yes, I am far, far behind on his baby scrapbook, too. I’m actually considering getting the blog printed into book form for him to have one day….hummmm.) So, back to the nursery!
When we decided to convert Annabelle’s nursery into Luke’s nursery, we chose to keep some things the same. One of those things was the canopy over the crib. I loved it in her room and it was so “Prince Charming” to me when we were doing his. We also kept the sheers the same and he has some adorable pink baskets in his closet holding all things little boy! ;)
Since the good Lord has blessed me with a very active, curious & slightly mischievous one year old, the canopy had to come down.
I love pictures (no kidding, right?) and have long wanted to do a Pottery Barn-ish display over the crib. However, it was not in the budget to go the Pottery Barn route so I rummaged through some old family pictures and found three frames that were just the size I needed. I still had some money left on a gift card to Michael’s and bought the mats there…and still have credit left on the gift card! The pictures I took myself and had printed through a lab that I love ordering from online (Thank you, Suzie!). I found some ribbon in a stash of my mom’s sewing stuff that I still use quite often and it was just what I needed…white and baby blue grosgrain. After indulging in a 97 cent can of spray paint, I rounded out my re-do to just under TEN BUCKS!!!
And, just for fun…here’s the rest of his sweet little room!
