Elijah’s Nursery

I’ve posted before many times about DIY home projects we’ve done. I think this room was the most fun of all. Take a look at Elijah’s Wilderness Themed Nursery.

Handmade blanket ladder with blankets and bears from our childhood. The clock was made by my grandpa. The cradle was made by my dad.

View of the changing table/dresser my husband refinished. I made the mobile with birds. My husband and I made the hanging shelf (which we still need to decorate). The wooden items on the shelves my grandpa made.

Decal with Elijah’s pictures, bird house, and handmade toy chest.

rocking chair

Rocking chair my J stripped and stained and I upholstered. It was intended to go in the corner of the nursery where the recliner is but after 1 night of feedings it was moved to the living room and we purchased the recliner.


Floating shelf my husband and I made. We still need to decorate this. We will use some of the handmade wood items from my grandpa.


Bathroom Vanity Area Update

I finally got around to updating the vanity area in the bathroom. There were two shelves the previous owner left in the office that were a perfect fit next to the mirror. Hobby lobby had a 50% off sale on basket, so I picked up a few to use as storage on the shelves.  The left side of the vanity still is empty, but there seems to be enough balance that it will be OK for now. I may hang something there, but we’ll see after living with it for awhile. I’ve found a bunch of great ideas on pinterest (of course) for hanging jewelry and make-up holders.
