A Vintage Baseball Nursery

So now that Jackson is almost ten months old (wait...what?!), we figured it was probably time to actually DO STUFF to his nursery...

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

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 :)

  2. Although relatively small, they are also generally affordable and portable, which of course are ideal for bringing along during baseball practice.
