As I was thinking about ideas for the Wee Baby P’s nursery, I knew that I wanted to try making a pegboard to hold baby supplies. I was inspired by this post that I found on Pinterest.
RP and I headed to Home Depot to pick up the necessary supplies. We picked up pegboard and two pieces of 1” x 2” MDF. Lucky for us, the length of the pegboard was almost exactly the same length of the two pieces of MDF.
I painted the board and the pieces of the MDF.
RP stapled the MDF strips to the length of the pegboard to create a frame for the board. He also attached hooks to the back of the top piece of the frame so that we could hang the board on the wall above the dresser/changing table.
In the two red baskets, I’ve got diapers and burp cloths. I’ve got baby hats in the small silver basket on the right. I’m hoping I quickly realize what I need to have within arm’s reach – it probably won’t be baby hats, but they’re really adorable.
The Washington Nationals print is from the Zeke’s Antique Signs Etsy shop and I just put it in a simple white Michael’s frame. The P is also from Michael’s. I found the Lion print at Wake Up Little Suzie in D.C. It has the great quote by E.E. Cummings “it takes courage to grow up and be who you really are.” It was an impulse buy and I love it!
The nursery is slowly, but surely coming together. Here are a couple of sneak peeks!
Obviously the pillows won’t stay in crib, but it’s fun to see all of the patterns together. One of these days I’ll have it all together and I’ll be able to give you a full tour.
Stuff is getting real. Six weeks until we meet WBP.
