Biker Baby Nursery Part 1


I have finally {finally} started working again on Harrison's room! My trip to Goodwill really got the ball rolling and with a little help from El Guapo aka the Hubbs, I was able to put up the shelves that I painted this week.

Now it all started with some brainstorming if you remember back to {this post}, where I finally came up with a theme for little H's room. After some collecting and thrifting and painting and pure inspiration (I'm really thrilled with my jacket idea), I finally pushed myself to get things

So here are the shelves all finished and hung up:

I am so lucky to have such cool Grandparents. The motorcycle signs belonged to my Grandpa and I love their vintage vibe! He collected these among many other really cool things.

The motorcycles on this shelf also belonged to my grandpa.

And here is my absolute favorite part...

Check out the biker baby (okay more like toddler but whatev) jacket:

I know you probably thought that it would be this huge thing that was so hard to put together but it was literally hang the frame and then hang the jacket in the center of the frame.

I don't care, I love how it looks!

And then there's this awesome sign that my Sister-in-law Clarisa made for me. Seriously! She just came up with it after she found out that I liked the saying.

This book and motorcycle again were my Grandpa's. I'm telling you, coolest grandparents with the coolest stuff!

And as for that other basket? It found its way over here to hold some extra blankets, books and snuggly animals:

Now I put this post down as part one because while I may have made some progress there are still things to consider.

Such as this big empty wall that is in need of some letters {courtesy of my other Sister in Law Camille once I get a hold of her):

I also need to find or make some curtains for the window and I really need to work on a bed set or something.

Anyways, I think I'm pretty happy with how the room has turned out so far. What do you think?

I was able to go thrifting at Goodwill this past week to see if I could find some shelves for Harrison's room. I seriously scored with some awesome shelves PLUS some extra things that I hadn't expected to find.

I found two of these great baskets that are really BIG and only cost me $4 each!

I also found this frame which is perfect for my jacket project for Harrison's room as well! Plus the shelves of course.

See those toys hanging over there? That's why these baskets are awesome! You'll see.

I painted the shelves white but they looked pretty boring.

So I sanded the edges. Much better!

As for the baskets, they got a fresh coat of spray paint and one is now in this little corner!

I still need to hang the shelves and the frame as well. I'm really excited for how Harrison's room is going to look when I'm done with it. I will post more later, once I finish it up.
Anyways that's all for now.

And look at those smooshed little lips! I love it :)

Opposite Day

No. My baby has not been screaming for several hours a day for an entire week.

No. I did not cry almost every day.

No. I did not eat an entire pound of bacon by myself.

Birth un-announcements

Before Harrison was born, I made this cute Lumberjack beanie for him. I was running out of yarn and didn't have enough of one solid color to make the entire beanie so I decided to put three (or was it four?) colors together for this beanie. It was pretty simple. I just started with a regular beanie and then added the sides, ties and top little fuzzie.
So, when he was only a few weeks old I did my own little photoshoot with it and used the pictures from it to create a birth announcement...

that I never sent out...


I loveeee this picture and I'm really bummed that I never actually ordered all of the announcements and sent them out. It's been a little crazy, what with the:

-Umbilical Hernia (no big deal)
-Overactive let down (that's my deal but it makes him cry and not eat unless I lay down)
-Lactose intolerance (kind-of a big deal. I miss my cheese!)
-Eczema (sad deal- poor baby!)
-Reflux (scary deal because sometimes he sounds like he's choking a little on it)

Kind of a lot to handle on top of everything else that comes with being a mom. So here is the picture that never got sent out. Maybe I'll order it on a canvas?
