Diego's old room is going to be the new baby's nursery, and Sara wanted to change as little as possible, but bring a little femininity and freshness to the room. The room has pale yellow walls, white furniture, a yellow terry cloth rocker, and this striped Roman shade.
I had several yards of Alexander Henry's 2D Zoo print that I bought clearanced several years ago that seemed to compliment the colors in the striped shade. With a few coordinating cotton prints that I bought at JoAnn fabrics, we made over the nursery from boy to girl.
First, I made a simple slipcover for her rocker ottoman.
We purchased this print from etsy of a Spanish animal alphabet.
(Sara's kids are bilingual)
I framed it in a simple metal frame and decided to embellish the mat by cutting a scallop border out of fabric and using double-sided tape, stuck it to the mat.
I recovered Diego's old train themed bumper pad using the 2D Zoo print and coordinating fabrics. We paired it with this dark (looks light online) pink lattice print crib sheet from the Dwell Studio for Target line.
I made the monogram above the crib by simply printing out some letters, blowing them up, cutting them out of fabric, and appliqueing with a zig-zag stitch onto another fabric. I then centered, stretched and stapled them onto some blank square canvases.
Here are a few more pictures of the nursery's quick change new look. Also, please note, the side wall is off of the crib because Diego has not quite moved out of the room yet........poor baby, he does not know what's about to hit him..........he's moving in with his big sis, and a new little sis is about to steal Mom away!
