Changes are still happening in my son's room. You can see previous projects here, here, here and here. It is now his room and his little sisters room, so we are slowly transitioning her in there from a bassinet in the master bedroom. She still sleeps with me during the night since she still gets up several times to eat. But naptimes are all done in the shared room, so we're making progress.
I wanted to add an element above the crib and thought paper lanterns would be fun. I started out with the tried-and-true tissue paper flowers.
These are super easy and there are tutorials all over blogland. These were lots of fun and added the element I was looking for in that corner of the room. But...it needed a different texture.
So I went to the $1 store an found these Halloween lanterns. I gathered my supplies and sprayed 3 coats of primer on to cover the black eyes and mouth, and then 2 coats of royal blue.
Oh, we're having fun now! It's like the circus in there....But, still not too bright to distract from sleeping. (The blackout shades really help with that as well).
Here's the view from the crib...is that a rap song or something?
So many happy, bright colors and textures.
It just makes me smile.
And it makes my baby smile, too!
