There is only one little project left and the nursery will be done!
I've had so much fun putting it together and spending virtually nothing.
I might be biased, but isn't this a sweet space?
This week I finished a fun little mobile to hang over the crib.
Is it still called a mobile if it doesn't move?
It's not a mechanical one, but I guess it does sort of move in the breeze.
Here's how I made it:
*I found a small branch in the yard
*I spray-painted the branch silver.
(I would have preferred white but I was out and it's an hour to a store that sells spray paint.)
*I punched a million and 6 stars from random blue scrapbook paper
My 2-year-old helped.
*I tied string to the branch in varying lengths (while watching a movie with my man).
* I taped two stars together with the string squished between them
*Repeat the above step until you wish you never saw a little paper star again!
*Then I tied yarn onto the stick, tied the yarn around a thumb tack and poked the tack into the ceiling.
Little man loves it. I caught him staring.
Right before his Momma came into view, that is!
What's that you're trying to say?
Thanks for the pretty mobile, wonderful Mommy?
Here's how it looks from Baby's perspective:
So there you have it!
A free mobile that doubles as art.
I've shown the gallery wall before, but under it and next to the crib is my favorite chair.
It's my nursing nook. ;)
A little table for my Bible and a glass of water for that 5 AM feeding,
a Boppy pillow with a PBKids cover (from my shower for my first baby),
and a set of nesting boxes with baby toys and burp cloths.
One more project, coming soon!
Then I'll take you on a little tour of this sweet little room with a couple good before and after shots.
And then I'll consider the nursery complete. Ish...
