Woodscape with a Cardinal flare!

A baby room like no other baby room! I was looking through an old Martha Living magazine called Baby and found a baby room so beautiful I could not wait to get it started for our own little guy. All the colors were neutral and had a flare of red as the accent color, I just loved it. I really wanted red as well, so I decided on a red cardinal, which is really hard to find for a baby's room, lucky my mother-in-law had these handmade pillows made by her mother that just made the room super cute. Here is a list of projects I did to create my woodscape baby room!
I striped the chair and painted it white! Added the cute pillow and a red Ikea trashcan. Great little reading nook for baby "E".
I hand stitched two pictures for the room with matching fabric from his bedding, one cute tree picture and a fun bird picture.
Created three hand sewn blocks from felt in red, white and tan colors. I used 1-10 numbers and stars shapes on the blocks, will be great to play with when the little guy gets older.
Here is an up close shot of my hand stitched bird picture!
Revamped lamp shade, punched holes in the bottom of the shade and ran red satin ribbon through it. Then I hot glued a red ribbon on top adding loops to it creating a fun look!
Great find for 4 bucks at the local thrift store, spray painted white and added a red cardinal in the cage, just a fun piece to dress up the room even more.
Got old frames and painted them white, then I added some old pictures, as well as leaves I collected. Great collage on the wall.
Hand stitched mobile, I could not find anything that went well with the room, so I created my own.
Up close details of the bird!
The final area is the crib. All the bedding was handmade by my sweet mother-in-law in white, tans and rich browns. I made a cute flag banner using old linens and we also got a cute name picture that I hung above his bed. (not seen in the picture)
Well I hope you like the room, I do. Creating something handmade makes everything more personal for your family. Enjoy!

Love it! I love birdies, and Baby will too. I had to laugh at the trash can, though, because as soon as he's'll be moving that thing to higher ground! Beautiful room!
