I finished Louie's room! Well, decorating it anyway (organizing is a whole different story). I'm so excited. Not that Louie really cares about themes, but the Peter Pan Nursery is finally complete. I'm sure we'll add more trinkets here and there to add to the décor, but it is about time we shared our little man's room. Be sure to check the bottom of the post for all the DIY and product links!
So ready for the mini tour?
The "Think Happy Thoughts" poster was handwritten with markers and a ruler, done in 15 minutes. BOOM.
I had been itching to make another tassel garland and figured this would be a fun space to do it in. Primary colors are all over the room, and thankfully, all of Brody's birthday gifts from January had all the colors I needed. I knew saving the tissue paper would come in handy (not a hoarder - promise!).
If you recall, the Brodster and I made the Hook piece last summer, and the brightness of that painting basically inspired the whole color palette for the room. I rarely paint anymore, so I'm glad I took the time to actually sit down and get the Neverland map on Louie's wall. Lou stares at it every time I change his diaper.
I used my own personal fabric design, "Peter Pan Flying", for this pillow. Eventually, I will order more of it to make a couple of crib sheets or maybe a bumper. It is such a fun print - super bright and colorful. I still can't get over that fact that my illustrations are tangible like this!
From the design I used for my fabric, I cropped the artwork into four prints to decorate the wall. I'm not a big fan of having frames in a kids room, especially above the crib (I'm a worry-wart when it comes to earthquakes), so I just taped them up.
These banner letters were super easy to make out of felt. I'll probably create a tutorial for the blog in the near future. In the meantime, check out Lovely Indeed's tutorial, using canvas fabric and denim paint.
A few months ago, I found this pillow on Etsy and decided to recreate it myself. Gotta have a Big Ben, right? I mean, who wouldn't want to hug a building? I pretty much winged it on the design, but I might make another one in the future...maybe of Sleeping Beauty's castle?!?!
Below, you'll find Lou and his new pal, Peter Pan. He is made of felt and plush stuffing (Peter, not Louie). I actually hand-stitched this bad boy together and it took forever! I went the extra minimalist route by just using shapes to create him. Still, Lou seems to like him so it was totally worth it.
As you may have noticed, I love making banners. For some reason, I had a hard time finding alphabet blocks online, so I created my own template. These printable letters don't only work for a nursery. They can be used in classrooms, daycares, or even decoration at kids' birthday parties. Shoot, you can even use them for your cubicle at work! Do you, man. Do YOU.
Well, there you have it! Louie's very own Peter Pan nursery. While I was typing this post, Louie fell asleep while blabbing to Peter. So freakin' cute. Looks like he likes it here - yay!
