Since that's what I've been doing, getting everything ready, I want to show you their room!
Well, this is my lit Matt's room. It's a bit more spacious than the guest/office room!
I needed that extra space to accommodate my latest find, the crib! You can read about that HERE.
I wanted to incorporate the colors on the crib's bedding to the colors in the room!
This room was all about trains! More specifically about Thomas the Tank Engine! That obsession my boy had is all gone! but there are still some remnants of the train decor like the rail road!
and even the curtains!
To give it a more "babyish" feel! I created a crib mobile. My inspiration was a tutorial that I found right HERE. I changed it my way because I didn't want to sew!
The material I used were these cardboard coasters I found at Michael's at the end of the Holiday season for just $.50 -pack
The materials you need:
1 12" embroidery Hoop (painted)
Cardboard coasters ( I used 28)
Hot glue gun
Spray Adhesive to the wrong side of the fabric you're going to use. Place the coasters, and spray again on top of them. Cover the coasters with another piece of fabric with the right side up. Sandwiching the coasters.
Cut around every coaster. I even cover one small Christmas box!
Then, place the coasters in whatever way you want, hot gluing the ribbon in the center of each coaster.
I made 8 strands ( 4 with 4 coasters, and 4 with only 3)
Hot glued each strand to the hoop. Lastly, eight more pieces of ribbon were attached to the hoop and tied at the top.
I re purposed the boxes from this bathroom, remember?
Now, I'm just waiting for them!
