This room has been pretty much closed off, or kept as storage since we bought the house back in November. We knew it would be one of our final bigger projects. I would have to say this room was the most difficult to decorate. I didn't want it to be too babyish, or tacky. If you want to see where I got a lot of my ideas from click here to read my previous posts. Thankfully, Johnny and Jack took care of the sanding and painting. That left me with only cleaning, and decorating. The first pieces of furniture that moved in were the crib, dresser and rug.
Before anything else was moved in I asked my father-in-law if he could remove the closet doors off of the closet and build a shelving system. The next day I came home from work and he had already started it!
And so it goes everything was moved into the room!
Don't the shelves look AWESOME!
....... And immediately fell in love. So I pulled out some of my old scrapbooking paper and began. My Ipad came in handy for this project. I googled giraffe and elephant silhouettes. Then I traced them with a pencil. This was a very quick and easy way for me to get the perfect stencil for a giraffe and elephant without trying to sketch it myself. Then I mounted it onto another piece of scrap book paper and framed it!
I'm fortunate to have a friend that stalks my pinterest page because the hooks hanging below my home made pictures were also something I liked on Pinterest. My pinterest stalker/best friend bought these as a gift for our baby shower!
