So I finally almost finished it! I need to put some scrapbook paper over the bins that are under the changing table and recover the bottom cushion of the glider...but I feel like I've tackled a lot in here Smiley It used to be cloud wallpaper with Spiderman stickers ALL OVER. We had to put textured paint-able wallpaper over that icky stuff.

My dad cut the letters out for me using a font I found online and I stained them mahogany to match the furniture. All of the pictures on the wall are sea creatures that I drew with Prismacolor pencils and micron pens.















Hope you like it! Comments/criticisms?

Okay so once again I am completely redoing my pictures. Got tired of photobucket, the only reason I used it was for here so I decided I will just use Craftster's photo uploader. So while I am switching over my photo links will be broken. Message me if there is a post you would like the pics for.

Looks great.

I love the pictures on the walls and how everything coordinates.

I love this so much! The letters for her name are beautiful! And the artwork is adorable. I love how it is girly but classy too!

Thanks again everyone!


I'm not usually a fan of pink at all...but I figured if I made it classy and not baby-ish then it would appeal to me a little more for a little longer. I did decide to hang the sea creatures up because I didn't think it would look right for a baby otherwise.

It is adorable! I love, love, love the name on the wall!
I think we have the same (or really close) rocker. Did you recover the back already? How did it go?
