One Last Nursery DIY
I just couldn’t help myself. With about 3 & a half weeks to go and nothing left on the baby to-do list [literally. I cooked freezer meals this weekend, we are pre-registered, and all the other minor things I needed to check off are done.], I needed something else to keep me busy! Enter, one last DIY for the nursery:
It’s kinda hard to tell from the photos, but it’s a series of picture frames that spell out the word FAMILY. I thought this project would be kind of difficult, but it ended up being pretty easy!
First, I created large-scale letters from posterboard that spelled out the word family. I took those with me to our shower, and then made sure to snap pictures of everyone there:
A picture with me and B (F)
A picture of my brother-in-law & his girlfriend (A)
A picture of my grandparents (M)
A picture of my sister (which she took separately and sent to me, since she lives in Wyoming!) (I)
A picture of my parents (and their dog!) (L), and
A picture of my in-laws (Y).
Then, I printed the pictures and cut out the silhouettes of everyone (so I didn’t have to worry about photo-shopping the different backgrounds). Next, I mounted each photo on a piece of cardstock that matches the bunting hanging around the room, popped them in to frames, and hung ‘em up!
They’re hanging on the blank wall space next to the changing table. You remember it:
I’m really pleased with how this turned out, and I can just picture showing Baby S each picture and teaching him to recognize who everyone is!
So that’s it, I promise. The last of the last nursery DIYs. Now I’ll just have to keep myself busy in other ways. I already deep cleaned our house and made all of our freezer meals, so I guess I’ll just try to relax?! I enjoy the anticipation of the waiting game but I also wouldn’t mind if baby decides he wants to come a little early, haha!
