Drum roll, please

After four days of working non-stop, Sammy now has a room of his own. Woo hoo!



The valance was my mom's first "no-sew" project and an Ikea hack to boot; I bought an inexpensive fleece throw for its cool scalloped and pierced edging and my mom used heat-n-bond to hem it and then added GIANT rickrack trimming.  I don't think it could have turned out any better.  The pompom mobile hanging over the changing table is a little something I made using wire hangers and decorations leftover from my wedding.


I found the vintage crib mobile on Etsy; most of the art work is by friends and artists that I met when I lived in Philadelphia several years ago.


My mom saw the owl lamp at Target and couldn't resist--it's a great addition to the room (especially since I haven't finished spray painting the vintage sconces that are going to hang on either side of the mirror).


The raccoon is a vintage wooden lawn ornament that I found in Manassas.  He was just too cute to pass up.


I took the doors off of the closet and replaced them with no-sew fabric panels that I made using Ikea fabric (no doors=more floor and wall space).  I found the rocker on a trip home to Pennsylvania about four years ago for $25 (!).


A detail shot of some of the toys on the shelves--I love me some vintage Fisher Price and can't wait until Sammy is old enough to play with them.


And last, but certainly not least, the lockers.  They were a gift from my parents; my dad salvaged them from a building being renovated a couple of years ago.  The child's cat-and-dogs coat rack is vintage as is the "How Tall am I" measuring stick hanging to the left of the lockers (I've been stocking up for a kid's room long before Sammy was a glimmer in Captain Husband's eyes).
