Bennett's Nursery

We finally finished the last finishing touches on the nursery this week.
I'm so excited to put him in his room!! Only 5 days tops left!!! I just want him to come already!!
I'll eventually do a few tutorials with some specific projects from the nursery. But here it is!
Our Star Wars Nursery for our Little Bennett Luis Heder




My parents were so nice and got us the perfect crib! 

One of the first projects I did was to paint these 4 canvases with some subtle Star Wars prints. haha its really hard to keep a star wars nursery from going major cheesy! 

I did his name letters by getting cardboard letters from Hobby Lobby and covering them with tin foil and paint for a Faux Zinc look. I'll also do a tutorial for these. 

We have a little dresser with his newborn-3 month clothes that arent hanging, and I decided to store the bigger clothes til he grows into them. So we dont have a thousand sizes everywhere. Hopefully that keeps us a little organized. 
I love how the chair turned out, It was so fun to redo! I'll do a tutorial on that and link it to this post later. 

Our vinyl chevron turned out exactly how I wanted it to. I used my Silhouette (best thing EVER) to cut out the vinyl and transferred it to the wall. It was a tiny bit tricky at first but it turned out great!
I will do a tutorial on the measurements I used for the bedding, making crib skirts and sheets is actually really easy if you measure it out correctly :) 

Just some details from the room. I LOVE the rug we found at Ikea! 

I LOVE the bookshelves. I bought spice racks from Ikea (only 3.99 each!) and painted them to match the room. They come unfinished, so they are so easy to do! Thanks Pinterest! :) 

The first picture in this block is the Basket Ben's sister Diana made for me! It matches perfectly! Thanks Diana!!! :)
My FAVORITE part about the room is the 3 pictures above the changing table. Here they are up close. first is my Great Grandpa Charles Bennett Conquest. and the last is Ben's Grandpa Luis. Both men were amazing and I'm so excited for our little guy to have such a meaningful name. I absolutely love it. 

And that's the room! I'll update the links to the tutorials later. I hope he likes it!
