Baby Boy Meyer's Nursery

Once we knew the baby is going to be a boy, Timmy and I decided his nursery had to be train themed. We, all four of us, have worked have worked hard on decorating it and getting it ready. Aside from setting up linens etc, I think we are basically decorated! This was the first time I've had the cricut to use on a did it open up tremendous possibilities!

I made custom curtain rods from wood dowels that I painted white. I painted wood trains and used those for the curtain rod holders...I did white trim to look like stitching on those using my Sakura gel pen. It worked awesome on wood with acrylic paint!

I couldn't find a sign like this that I liked on the cricut, so I made my own with cricut letters and white Contact Paper. Also the tracks you see, circle the entire room. I initially was going to do them with vinyl...but that was cost prohibitive and frankly kinda ugly. So I hand painted these instead and am quite happy with the result! Can't beat $2 for the bottle of paint!

Each of my kids have a verse hanging up in their room that I created on the cricut. Again this is just Contact much cheaper than Cricut vinyl! I was inspired by a scrapping friend, Amy, to tie this verse into the room! You can also see a couple more of the curtain rod holders...I did each one a different color.

Got the sign off of the Going Places cartridge. I used Contact paper for the background and regular Black Cardstock for the black part.

I made a five car lenth train because I wanted to spell out Meyer on it. Timmy picked the colors and it turned out pretty well. For each of these I cut using the Blackout feature and then used Cardstock for the colored parts. I made sure the paper I used was fadeproof.

This is a closeup of the engine train, I did a white trim on all these too to look like sewing.

I think I am done with the decorating part for now. I've got some more ideas, but those will have to wait until we meet the little peanut and give him a name!

What a cute room!!!!!!!!!!! I had a great time decorating my daughter's room before she was born - we didn't know she was going to be a girl, so we went with yellow colours and a giraffe theme! Now she wants a princess room, we'll go for that when we move!
