Micah's room has gotten the most attention so far, only because it's the smallest of the bedrooms and I already had some of the decor on hand.
I made these back in September, just a month or so before Micah was born. I had attempted to hang them with Command picture hooks, but they didn't really work. Nails work much better!
Also found an amazing set of wall decals from Target on clearance! I put a bunch of them above his crib, as well as over his changing table where some vintage space flashcards were already on display:
I think they do a good job in filling blank space on the wall without doing any damage since they're removable.
During a recent trip to Goodwill, I found an adorable vintage book for 77 cents:
Really, it's such a fun little book. It has an occupation for each letter, along with a poem:
There's even a milkman in it. A MILKMAN. Do those guys even exist anymore?
What made it even more interesting is that a little girl had written on a few pages. Not to be messy, but to record her hopes and dreams:
Who is this Kelly Baldwin? When did she read this book? Where is she now? And did she ever realize her dream of being a nurse or a teacher? Makes me wonder. That's the magic of used books, I guess!
Anyway, the rest of the book was in excellent condition, so I just removed the two staples holding it together (two VERY rusty staples, might I add...glad my tetanus shot is up to date!) and then cut down the middle to get the "R" page:
I used a 12" X 12" frame I already had (hint: get LP display frames at Michael's....they have them on sale for $4.99 a LOT and they're the perfect size for scrapbook paper!), and for the backing I used some super cute wrapping paper I found at TJ Maxx:
There's still a blank wall opposite the big window in his room, so I still need to figure out something to put there. It'll most likely be another Scripture, and I would love to use more of that chevron paper in it somehow!
