Baby Boy's Room

Need a quick way to customize your nursery without breaking the bank? I got these canvases and letters from Hobby Lobby and bought some acrylics in colors to match the crib bedding...easy-peasy! Just pic a few images from the quilt or bumper and paint away. I free-handed these, but if you aren't artsy, just hold up to the light and trace as best as you can. Color the back side of the paper where you traced the image with chalk, then place your paper onto the canvas and trace the image again. Instant transfer! Or, you can find your bedding online and print and enlarge the pic. Easy DIY art for your sweet baby!

You don't have to spend a ton for a cute display....I got the shelf on clearance at Marshall's, then added a frame and the tiny cowboy hat that I already had. The horse is vintage that I picked up for $2.00 at an antique shop...I have another one, but my little girl decided it needed to live in her room:) The point is, look around and see what you already have and make a fun grouping that makes you smile!

Again, just things I had...a ledge shelf, a sweet pic of my boy, a fox (of course) and some cute boots he outgrew. I made the bunting for his first birthday...I stored the "Happy Birthday" part and kept his name out to hang on the shelf. I printed out a bible verse and put it a dollar store frame. (I actually had many of these that I used at a friend's baby shower...)

Last one for today....I loved this verse that I bought on sale at Hobby Lobby, but it looked small on the wall. When I saw this frame made from barn wood at a local antiques store for only a few dollars, I knew it would be perfect to frame the verse on his wall! I think it is just what that wall needed:) Happy Antiquing!
