Baby Boy is going to have a pirate theme nursery! It started out as a nautical theme--but after too much online shopping searching for design inspiration, I took it a step further to "Baby Boy Bucaneer"!
I should give most of the credit to Pinterest for inspiring me to take on a lot of these projects on my own. Otherwise, I would have done what I normally do: shop until I find the perfect items to complete his room (translation: spending a small fortune).
Well, for his room I have been hard at work-- buying things and making them unique by putting my own little touch on them. Here are a few of the things I've created thus far:
|I took Ava's old mobile (PBK Fairy Mobile) and revamped it: I cut off the fairies and instead glued little wooden sea-life themed appliques to the end of the strings.|
|I think it turned out pretty cute! And best of all-- it's one of a kind!|
|Little pirate ship I found at Michaels for $3.|
|... I spray painted it red...|
|... and used some model paints to finish it. It's not perfect but I think that gives it even more character! ;-)|
|These were naked pine shelves that I purchased at Michaels. After some paint and primer they were ready to go!|
|Pine chest that I spray-painted red...|
|... and glued sea-life-appliques...|
|... and added some pirate treasure for good measure!|
|Wall decal for the entry wall|
(Did you know I sell wall decals for Uppercase Living????!!!! Yep! Shop away, Matey!)
|Baby Boy wanted in on the action... so much for my Ohio State shirt! Looks like it will be my painting shirt from here on out!|
