I wanted a creative way to display pictures of my son at 1 month old, 2 months old, etc. So when I found the white fish photo frames, I just had to get them. I was only able to find 3, but I since each frame has spots of 3 photos, I needed 4. So I eventually went online and found a similar frame. The darker frames had metal hooks, and I removed those and tried to cover the holes where the hooks once were with the numbers. I was going to alternate the colors of the numbers, but I decide to paint them all red.
A friend found these fish for me at Goodwill. I really like the way these turned out.
These fish were glued together, but I detached them and touched up the paint where the glue was and hung them on the wall separately.
A couple fish are also chalkboards, so I thought about this fish quote and wrote it on the two fish. "Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day...
...Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime." Also the blue grid fish used to be white, and I think it's a trivet.
I put the extra fish frame under the Ikea spice rack book shelves.
For Christmas, my friend bought me the red chalkboard boat shaped shelf. I considered putting it in my craft room, but I realized I had no room on the wall for it, so I hung it on the wall with my son's other boats. Since it had hooks, I hang his coat and diaper bag from it. The blue and white boat was purchased at Goodwill, and it used to be green. I bought the boat shelf in the middle while visiting my family, and it holds my son's boat and nautical bootie piggy banks.
So here's the completed (for now) nursery:
In this photo, you can see Patches the Pirate Puppy, the Ahoy Matey Quilt, and the Crochet Fish Baby Blanket I made for my son.
In this picture, you can see the diaper stacker I made for my son. I also wanted to make his hamper, but I decided to buy a plain one, and I added a red anchor to it.
So that's my son's nursery. He's 15 months old now, so I know he'll be in a toddler bed before I know it. So I'll share an update when that time comes. They grow up so fast!
