Canvas and Fabric Decorating-Baby's Room

8 weeks until our newest Little Man should make his debut. That might seem like a long time...believe me there are days/minutes/seconds where I feel that. THEN I start looking at my legen....wait for it...dary to-do list and I realize 8 weeks is not  that long.

This week I got a couple things accomplished for his new room. I painted canvases and made embroidery hoops cute by  adding coordinating fabric.

Both of these projects were super easy and fairly fast.

Of course once I found all the fabric, the planning could begin. I was so happy when I finally went to a store here in town that was rumored to sell home fabric...you know the kind on the giant rolls...for super cheap.


Can you just imagine, home fabric for anywhere from 4.99-9.99 a yard? Say what? Yeah it is true.

Isn't it all so lovely.

This is the curtain material. I got 6 yards of this cute print for just over 30 bucks. Again, I must say it...


The curtain material is where I started coordinating all the other fabric.

Some of the fabric is going in hoops. I am adding more sizes of hoops to these soon.

This is one of my favorite fabrics and is inspiring the accessories of white elephants.

I also decided to use my handy dandy, always in stock, canvases to make some more wall art.

I simply gathered my canvases and taped off the edges with painters tape.

I picked out some coordinating craft paint.

I painted my canvases with 2 coats. Then I removed the painters tape.

Next I used white vinyl and my Silhouette and cut out a chevron pattern for one. The first letter of new baby's name for another...

and then of course a white elephant on the biggest canvas.

I LOVE the colors together.

I am getting so excited. Middle and Littlest's room is all done. Oldest's is SO close. Newest's room is on its way.

This room is going to be so sweet and hopefully ready just in time for our sweet new Little Man.

I love watching your progress on the nursery. We find out if we're having a boy or girl next week and I live for all the bloggers out there who are decorating baby rooms. =)

Loving the houndstooth fabric, too. Did I miss where it's from?

I love the colors you've chosen.

Kim, that is SO exciting! I bet you can't wait.

I got the houndstooth material at a local discount fabric store. So I am not sure where to send people to find it. Sorry!

Thanks Polly!

Love it all and love following all your projects. Can you tell us what and where the store is? I don't know where you're located. I'm looking for home decor fabric for a few projects and haven't yet found anything I love.

Oh Rissa...this is SO CUTE! How the heck do you come up with the ideas?

I just found you from Somewhat Simple. Your soup recipes looked so yummy I just had to come and check your blog. I am ALWAYS looking for good recipes and one of my goals this year is to try at least one new recipe a week. Maybe easy for most people but I need all the help I can get!
I look forward to getting to know you through your blog!

You have a name?!! I'm due any minute (well March 1st, but my little guy is in launch position, so he'll be born much sooner than that!) and we HAVE NO NAME.

We have a list of names we don't hate, but that's as far as we've gotten. I'm pretty concerned that he'll be a month old and we'll still be calling him his in utero name, "Tummy Baby".

I an so loving the curtain fabric though! I'm soing very similar colors for Tummy Baby and I know that I have some old embriodery hoops and awesome fabric. I'm going to steal your idea. I hope that it's ok with you. :)

Here's to an easy rest of your pregnancy!
