Look at me! Look at me! Two posts in one week! It must be some kind of record. :D
I just wanted to post a quick tutorial on how I did our little boy’s nursery letters. After browsing Pinterest for ideas, I decided to DIY hanging letters from a curtain rod. It was super easy and quick- which I like- because I’m totally running out of time.
- scrapbook paper- I purchased a book of scrapbook paper named “It’s a boy thing” from Walmart for about $5.00
- cardboard letters – Hobby Lobby on sale for $1 a piece
- exacto knife or other equivalent of a very sharp crafting knife
- cheap curtain rod
First I laid out my letters onto the paper and cut around the edge to create an exact paper replica.
Then I glued the paper onto the letter and let that dry.
Next I attached the coordinating ribbon ( I cut each ribbon at about 18 inches I believe). I attached the ribbon using a nifty little thumbtack to the back.
Then I screwed my curtain rod into the wall and slid my letters into place! Done!!!!
I told you it was easy and fast!!

Well this pregnancy is flying by. One of the things on my to do list before I get too
bloated and ginormous pregnant was to redo my little girl’s room with the hope that she’d actually SLEEP in there. So we painted the walls, repainted a nice twin bed/trundle we bought on Craigs’ list, and worked to organize her gazillion toys, books, and princess dress collection. She is a connoisseur of sorts when it comes to Disney princess fashion…she knows her stuff.
So this is what we came up with!
The walls were painted Pebble Grey using Glidden semi gloss. The bedding is from Bed, Bath, & Beyond- I had a hard time finding bedding that incorporated all of the bright colors I wanted to use. All other decor is either Ikea or crafts that we’ve put together…or the old faithful Walmart Design Studio.
I am not a design person, by any means, I struggle with how to put things together- but I like how colorful the room turned out. I knew I didn’t want to follow a theme, so it kinda resembles an explosion of toys, dolls, and bright colors- but she loves it!
She had a blast helping me put stickers on the walls and helping decide where to put her toys and dolls. Everything has a home.
I think what I like most about it is that the walls are gray- so we can change decor without changing the walls. I think this is a good room to grow up in. She’s pretty stoked about having her own space….now if I could JUST convince her to STAY in her bed instead of sneaking into ours…
I’ll have to figure that one out later.
