Modern Baby Boy Nursery

I hunted every store and website for the perfect bedding and room decor for our baby boy but found nothing but an abundance of over used themes. Trucks, trains, boats and airplanes. Dinosaurs, puppies, and sports.... So I decided to break down and try to come up with my own design.

 My inspiration piece was this adorable fabric that I found at JoAnn Fabrics.

I painted these trees with acrylic paint on stretched canvas from our local craft store. It took several layers to get the dark brown to cover evenly.

 I wouldn't exactly call myself a sewer but I was able to stitch some simple straight lines to create a window valance and bed skirt.  I used a bright orange blanket binding ribbon to finish the edges of both.

I was able to order basic fitted sheets and changing pads with coordinating colors from Carousel Designs.  This site has so many different fabrics! I really wish I would have found it first before fighting with my sewing machine.
