While we were doing a baby sitting gig, or what I call “Dani Duty”, last Friday, I shot a couple of pictures of wall vignettes on this baby’s wall. But first — this baby. Our first granddarling.
OK. So I got the gratuitous grandchild picture out of the way. She’s a little over two months old here and getting ready to go swimming. She got her feet wet and said Nope. Not having any part of that and get this thing off my head! (That thing is a hat, not a doily.)
Her nursery is done in doggies and there are a couple of shelves above the changing table that I think are so sweet!
The Scottie in the frame is cut from the wall paper that is on one end of the room. Yup. There’s no picture of that. Because I always forget something. The shelf is one that my mother picked up at a yard sale or an auction nearly 40 years ago. She was going to sell it in her yard sale, but I grabbed it and used it in my house for years. My children grew up with it, but it was stained wood then. Erin painted and distressed it. We’ll have to make sure Dani keeps it and hands it down to her daughter.
Sitting next to and above that shelf is this one. (Silly me. Didn’t think to get a picture of them together.)
Another framed, wall paper dog, some crocheted baby booties I found at an estate sale and a chalk Scottie Erin picked up at a sale. The oval frame, I believe, is one I found at a yard sale.
Isn’t this vintage baby puzzle adorable? And how perfect!
Erin picked up this little metal holder thingy… maybe it’s a soap holder? Or something? Whatever it is, she knew the moment she saw it that it belonged in the nursery.
Thank you for allowing me a little granddarling time. Hope you enjoyed the vignettes!
Chic decor? Am I stretching it? Maybe a little…. or maybe not? When I found these little, brightly colored buckets at the Dollar Tree, bells and whistles went off in my brain. A light bulb came on over my head. I had an idea I thunk up all by myself! Sort of. OK. Not really. I’ve seen many other tins and pottery done this way, but to my knowledge haven’t seen these – these particular buckets from the Dollar Tree. So I can almost say it’s my original idea. Right? Yeah. I know. That’s stretching things. I’m a such a copycat.
Let’s paint ’em white and put Vinyl numbers on ’em!
I sprayed them with white Rust-Oleum Protective Enamel
Next, I cut out some vinyl numbers with my Silhouette Cameo die cutting machine and stuck the numbers on the buckets. That’s it. Yer done. Of course you could stencil the numbers on or do an image transfer and if I do more, I’ll probably try those techniques, too. But I’m always looking for ways to use my Cameo. I’ve had it going on a year now and still can’t get over the coolness of it. If you don’t have one yet, maybe it’s time to buy one! Amazon usually has some pretty good prices.
Got a Silhouette die cutting machine you don’t know what to do with? Craftsy offers a class called Silhouette Savvy for $29.99, but they often put classes on sale.
