I already shared my old baby's room with you. This is my new baby's room. I love this room! The biggest thing you should know about this room is that it was decorated on a very low budget. I would have loved to get all new furniture, but that wasn't an option, and since the furniture is on it's last leg, I knew I wasn't going to be using it for too long, therefore chose not to paint it (otherwise I would have.)
I painted the monogram and airplane on the wall...
I added a little monkey flying the plane and a couple of birds above, as per my aunt's advice.
I LOVE having my 'designer aunt, Amy' visit. She came up with a plan for the bedding and my aunt, my mother and I went shopping for the material. My mother actually did most of the sewing work: whipping up the bedding, the window panels, the table topper & completely recovered my chair & ottoman. I LOVE having my mom visit too! No lie, when she plans a trip, I find 'work' for her. Sometimes it's painting, but most often it's sewing. I can sew, she just does it SEW MUCH BETTER and quicker too. Most of the material is from Joann Fabrics. Some is from Walmart.
I found this rug at Ross. I love the zebra print!
All the frames in this room are from Walmart and were super inexpensive. The photo's in the frames are, of course, of my little man. I loved these photo's and wanted to make the red wagon "pop", so using photoshop, I did just that. I also gave the photo a vintage look. These photos aren't even printed on photo paper, I just printed them out with my laser printer on regular paper. (bet you would of never known that, huh?)Here's a couple more Walmart frames and photo's printed on regular paper.
These photo's are his newborn pics. I made the plaque with his name on it. Simply painted a piece of board, painted some letters that I found at Joann's and hot glued them on and hung it with ribbon. The shelf is from Ross (I gave it a coat of glaze.) I just love this cute little puppy dog too! (my baby actually sleeps with this puppy every night.)
To dress up the room a bit, without spending much money, I had to use some creative thinking. Like for instance:
This baby box was a neon green color (but a great price at Ross.) So I gave it some paint and a coat of glaze. I talked about glazing in my Childrens' Art Board post. The sweet little teddy bear is one that my boys have had for a while now. To make him "go" in the room, I simply gave him a little addition with ribbon.
Here's one last look at my NEW baby's room:
I just love sitting in this room. It makes me :)
May you be a little inspired!
