Yes. We were slackers here. But in my defense he slept with us for six months...and the wait was 100% worth it! His vintage baseball themed nursery turned out so sweet. The idea stemmed from my love of the Philadephia Phillies and the fact that I am the great great granddaughter of Harry Krause, a professional baseball pitcher who played for the Philadelphia Athletics (who are now the Oakland A's). I had a special connection with this theme and wanted to do it up!
I started collecting vintage-y things...a baseball bat hat rack, a canvas print of a baseball patent, a picture of my great great grandfather. And it all went from there...take a look!
I put flag bunting above Jackson's crib along with his name. I found "palette" circles at Michael's and weathered them with white craft paint mixed with Martha Stewart Crafts Antique medium, then painted on baseball stitching.
I found this little guy on Zulily :)
I made a book/toy crate to sit next to the rocking chair
My Zulily hat rack and the Phillie Phanatic above the changing table
My great great grandfather, Harry Krause
And a Sandlot quote :)
And of course, a classic Babe Ruth quote!
I'm in love. I could sit in that room all day. And I am so happy that my little dude finally has a rad nursery :)
