How is everyone? I am back in business! I was surprised 3 weeks ago to meet my new little guy. He was actually due this Thursday, the 10th. He had a much different plan! So, for those of you that haven’t met him just yet…
He is wonderful and healthy and I am so thankful for him!
I did share my original plans for his nursery a few months ago. I found some fabric and had great intentions of making his bedding. Those plans changed when I was put on bed rest 8 weeks ago.
My husband is a recreational pilot, and I ran across Pottery Barn’s Madras Bedding. I loved it, and decided this was the direction I wanted to go.
I started with a very easy project to get back in the swing of things. I recently came across some great watercolor airplane prints on Etsy. I fell in LOVE. However, they didn’t quite meet my “shanty” budget at $20 a pop. I decided to use the sheets from the bedding to recreate the look.
Here are the sheets from the bedding…
I loved the airplanes on these, so I decided to take pictures of them. I did change the tone of the pictures a bit on Photoshop Elements so they wouldn’t look like sheets in the pictures.
I also bought 8 cheapo frames from good old Walmart!
That’s about it! I just put each picture in a frame and hung them on the wall above the storage system I built.
Here are the results…
This was a $24 dollar project that I love! I’m excited to get the bed out of the box and see it all come together! I have some fun curtains to share too!
Thanks so much for stopping by! I’m off to feed the fam! It’s Paula Deen Taco Soup night at my house… Whoooooop!
