It's officially finished! Baby Brother's vintage airplane nursery is complete:
I went with the colors navy blue and a sort of apple/lime green:
My mom and I searched high and low for the perfect fabric to sew the bedding out of. I wanted vintage airplane blueprint type fabric, and found exactly what I wanted here on Restoration Hardware Baby and Child - but at $129 just for a flat sheet??! No way!! After a lot of searching, I found the absolute perfect fabric at a little awesome fabric website called Spoonflower. $15 per yard was much more affordable and the fabric was super high quality and nice.
Mom sewed the bumper set, the pillow, and the crib skirt. I added in a couple of minky and minky/satin blankets.
I had my heart set on striped navy and white curtains - these I made and lined with blackout fabric to keep the room nice and dark.
One of my favorite parts is the stripe detail on the walls. It was a real labor of love taping that sucker straight, but it looks so very cool.
The airplane bookend was $6 from TJ Maxx, the sparkly airplane was a gift from my mom, the green airplane in the frame was one I drew and cut out, and the print up top is one I printed off the computer and mounted on canvas.
I used leftover fabric to recover the lampshade:
My dad found this perfect airplane - it was originally red, so I quick painted it navy blue to match the room. It's Cole's favorite part!
The large vintage print above the crib was an engineering print. I found a picture I liked online, took it to Office Depot (Staples does them too) and voila! I just mounted it on a piece of light posterboard from the dollar store - I love that it's so lightweight for above the crib, and it was super high impact for super cheap!
This was my old play baby doll crib from when I was tiny - Cole has been practicing putting his baby doll down to sleep.
While the crib set my mom made is my favorite part of the room, this is my second favorite. I loved this mobile (again, from Restoration Hardware), but $49 was way too much. So, I found a photo hanging mobile ($8 on amazon) and drew out some 3D airplane and cloud patterns. It took hours to cut everything just perfectly, but I LOVE how it turned out:
My mom found this adorable airplane hook in Pottery Barn Kids:
Ok, Baby! Come on out so you can enjoy your adorable nursery!
