Description

A fun, colorful, eclectic space where our son can learn and play!

Design Inspiration

The crib bedding--I found it at a baby store that was going out of business.  I also love vintage finds from Roundtop/Warrenton Antique Weekends (acres of people selling cool stuff in cow pastures two times a year!)

Decorating Style

Eclectic, vintage, Texas with a touch of kitschy.  And probably too cluttered, but I like stuff!

Project Details

--I love the decoupaged mount for the antlers--it was a fun, easy project using stamps purchased on eBay and attached/covered with Mod Podge. 

--I was originally wanting to find metal letters for Weston's name, but I didn't like the price for most that I found.  So instead, I purchased paper mache letters and spray painted them silver.  Can't beat $2.50 each!

--The framed pictures over the crib are pages from a Little Golden Book "Book of Manners".  I loved the words and illustrations--it's never to early to start learning manners :)

--I collect vintage Texas and Wisconsin postcards--I'm from TX and my husband is from WI, so I thought Weston's room was a good place to display his "roots".

Favorite Items

The needlepoint Noah's Ark that my great-grandmother made for my brother.  It's on loan until he has children.  I also adore the cow hide. 

Advice

I enjoy mixing new items with vintage finds.  And if I find something I love, I find a way to work it in to the room.  Later, Weston can edit what he doesn't like :)

    You must tell us where you got those lovely storage boxes that you have on that cabinet there in the main photo.  I love how fun this room looks!

    I love that shoe/towel rack you have there.  That’s unique and creative!  I also think that the knick-knacks you’ve included all throughout, on the shelves, on tables, these are great.  And you did great with the lettering too!
