I have made quite a few updates to Little Pilot's room so I thought I would post another tour. I will try and let you know the sources for the as many of the new items as I can. To get the sources for any of the other items you can check out his Christmastime tour here.
"Welcome to my room!"
Here is an overall look at the room and you can see the biggest change - the striped wall! You can also see the shower curtain, curtains.
The idea for the stripes came after I made this Goodwill chalkboard tabletop into some personalized artwork for Little Pilot. I felt that the chalkboard art needed something interesting behind it. The 's' (Little Pilot's first initial) I drew freehand. You can see Little Pilot's finger marks at the bottom of the 's' where he tried helping. :) I was really happy with how simple yet graphic the 's' looks above the crib. The mobile is a window decoration that Tech Guy and I received for our wedding. It is by Aarika.
Here is a look at the glider and the new pillow cover I made. The fabric is by Waverly.
Here is another picture of the bookshelf Tech Guy and I made on the day before we had Little Pilot. I posted it again since we finally hung those closet doors.
Here is a picture of the closet doors. Much better than the louvered bi-folds that were there before. We hung Little Pilot's Muumi clock above them. The clock was purchased here while on vacation last summer.
Here are some pictures of the details. We moved some of the pictures from above the crib to shelf along with some airplanes that Little Pilot got for Christmas. You can also see the hardware we put on the closet doors. We chose some bungalow/craftsman style pulls from the kitchen cabinet hardware section at Lowes. It saved us a little and there were a lot more options to chose from than the regular door hardware section.
Here's the other side of the room. There are some small changes here as well: new art, hooks, owls and the Coca-Cola crate turned toy storage (under the change table).
I replaced the Christmas print with this alphabet printable that I customized to Little Pilot's room colours using Photoshop. Little Pilot received the Piper plane for Christmas and it matched the photo of his Pappa's plane well. I also picked up the owls at West Elm the other day from the clearance bin. It's supposed to be a butter dish, but it was missing the bottom and was marked down to $1.97. I thought it would look cute as a decoration. It kind of looks like little mountains behind the airplane) :).
We finally hung these puppy tail hooks from IKEA. I purchased them for our last house, before Little Pilot was born, but never got around to hanging them until now. I also made the dog picture above and personalized it with Nalle's name.
Those are all the updates. I will be back with more details on how I made some of the projects in the room soon.
"Thanks so much for visiting my room! I'm off to play with my best bud, Nalle!"
