I have 2 weeks left before we meet our baby girl and for some reason nesting means redecorating for me – not cleaning. I’ve been working on her nursery for about 4 months. It’s going really slow. Yet I got the crazy awesome idea to also redo the boys’ room in a theme that’s really special to all of us. I managed to design, paint and put together the furniture (my husband helped me with that, thankfully) over the last two weeks. The baby’s room isn’t finished, but I still feel really accomplished.
We watch Adventure Time on a daily basis so it seemed fitting to fill their space with something they really love. I had to illustrate all of the characters, though it wasn’t that difficult. I had them all printed at Staples while they were on sale for $3.99/poster (18×24). They’re usually $27.99 so that was a total steal! I went ahead and sprayed some Krylon Crystal Clear in Matte on each poster, even though I doubt it was necessary. Initially I tried to use Glue Dots to stick them to the wall, but it was expensive and the posters are really good quality and really thick, so it didn’t work. I ended up using Simply Tacky instead. It’s not that elegant, but I wanted to be able to easily remove it and wasn’t sure the spray adhesive would hold up.
All of the furniture is from Ikea, as well as their bedding.
