Denton’s Vintage Airplane/Travel Nursery

Project Details

I handmade the banners from quilting fat quarters and the clouds from felt and batting.  I am a graphic designer so I created all of the artwork for the room as well as the artwork on the pillow in the rocking chair.   You can find these prints by clicking here.  I refinished the dresser, nightstand, and rocking chair that I picked up at flea markets and thrift stores.  The airplane over the bed was purchased from Pottery Barn Kids.  The frames and table lamp were purchased from IKEA and then spray painted by me.  The curtains and bookshelf were purchased from IKEA and then I added the star fabric to the back panel.  The "toys" and "stuff" bins were purchased from IKEA and I added the labels to them via iron on transfers that I made.  The propeller was purchased off of eBay.  The clocks represent various time zones around the world- except for the "Denton" clock, which will be stopped at the time of his birth.  (Note:  Denton is being named after Denton, Texas- where my husband and I met, married, and began our lives together- so it actually is a real place and does belong in the CST time zone. :) )

Favorite Items

I can't decide what's my favorite!  I love the changing table wall with the propeller and prints... BUT I also love the plane with cloud and banner over the bed!  Oh and I really love the clocks and the idea of stopping his clock on his time of birth.  I guess I'm just partial to this nursery!

Beautiful room! What did you use to hang the airplane and clouds? We just hung a few airplanes in my son's room and used 50 lb fishing line. I feel like you can see it too much though.
