31  Circles and Faux Finish Baby Nursery in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by CraftyCarrie on: February 04, 2008 01:17:43 PM
This room has gone through MANY changes since we've moved in only 5 years ago.  Here's the latest.  Our son, Jonathan, was born on January 11th.  This is his room.

My husband and I did a lot of work in this room a couple of years ago.  We ripped up an old linoleum floor.  Sanded and refinished the hardwood floor.  We put up crown molding and baseboard molding.  I painted the the room using 2 different faux finish techniques.  Then I cut out circles from wallpaper sample books and used them as a border.

I used a Craftster tutorial to create the letters on the wall.  https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=213298.0
My mom got the gliding chair and ottoman for $50.00 at a garage sale. 
We painted and reupholstered it. 
My mother-in-law refinished the old cradle she used when my husband was a baby.

My husband made the dog bed.  We wanted to make sure he didn't feel left out.

I added some paint to the garbage pail to tie it into the room.

My husband also made the changing table.  There is a company that sells them for close to $200.00.  I showed him a picture and he made it for free.  I love him.

I think Jonathan likes his room.

That is amazing! It is so beautiful. What was the kit?
I have no idea.  It was on clearance at AC MOORE during the summer. 

I just did a search and found it online.  It's made by Janlynn.  Here's the link and the sample picure from the website.  You can see the colors more accurately in this picture.  As you can see, I eliminated the purple and gold on the sides.

This is my first completed needlepoint.  My husband bought it and swore HE was going to make it, but he never did.  I ended up making it.  I'm going to give this to my brother for his birthday.  I hope he appreciated the ENORMOUS amount of time it took to make.

I made one too!  It was so quick and easy.  Thanks for the idea.

I used a modified version of this pattern.  http://www.canadianliving.com/crafts/knitting/knit_a_ballband_dishcloth.php

36  CRAYON TRAIN in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by CraftyCarrie on: December 17, 2007 08:11:11 PM
I found these wooden magnetic trains in the dollar bin at Target.  My husband drilled holes in them slightly bigger than a crayon.  Then I just popped the crayons in.  They are a little crooked, but I think it looks great.  This is a Christmas gift for my cousin's 2 year old son.

Here's how I'll package it.  I folded the apron and rolled it up.  Then I used the apron strings to secure it.  I'll wrap it in bubble wrap to protect the crayons and put it in a box.

38  Glider Chair and Ottoman for Nursery in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by CraftyCarrie on: November 24, 2007 08:38:53 PM
If you've been to a baby store lately, you've probably seen those Glider Rocking Chairs with the Ottoman.  At over $300.00, I reluctantly put one on my registry, then I took it off.  My mom found a used one at a garage sale for $50.00.   It was in desperate need of a makeover.  My husband gave it a coat of paint and I recovered the cushions.  I forgot to take a before shot, but here's the after.

39  Crayon Apron and Name Block in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by CraftyCarrie on: November 24, 2007 08:21:58 PM
For Christmas I like to make something for my cousin's kids.  Here's what I made this year. 

Sadie is 3 years old.  This year, she gets a CRAYON APRON.  I love how this turned out.  I think it's the most adorable thing I've made.  I saw a similar apron in a magazine for $22.00, and I instantly thought, "I can make that!" 

Lena is almost 1 year old.  I made her a FABRIC BLOCK with her name on it.  It is loaded with ribbon loops for her enjoyment and it has a bell inside.
