Jaxon's Nursery~DIY Star Drapes

You may remember my recent post about the new DIY Star Drapes I made for the boys new room.  Today, I'd like to show how this project has made it's way into another real life space.  

This room belongs to this little guy...

Isn't that the sweetest face you've ever seen? 
 I think I would think that even if he wasn't my nephew. 
Anyway, here are a few pic's from around his cute little nursery.  

Nothing is more exciting than seeing of one of my DIY projects in someone else's home.  When I posted the navy blue star drapes tutorial from my boys room, my sister called me and informed me that Jax was getting a pair stat. 

She chose chocolate brown panels to compliment the colors in his bedding and the custom painted Ikea table I painted for him, if you missed that post, here are a few pics...

The table and chairs were a thrift store find that I made over for her shower gift. 

One day when my camera is not acting up, I'll give you the full tour of his adorable nursery. 

Her decision to make these drapes in brown was fabulous.  

The cotton twill drapes came from Walmart ($17/pair).  Following my step by step tutorial,  the project took 2 hours to complete. 

My sister did a great job designing and personalizing the space.  
His nursery is full of whimsical accessories and these semi-custom drapes were a great final touch.  

If you have tried a DIY project using a tutorial from this blog, I would love to hear about it.  My facebook page is a great place to share your photos.

  1. SO cute! I'm making a pair of those for my son ASAP! Where did your sister buy the letters for his name? I love that font!

  2. Karen, thank you! She found them at Hobby Lobby. Have fun making your drapes, I'd love to see them pop up on my Facebook timeline ;) Best, Sarah

  3. Love the brown too! I love the personalization of the drapes without them looking handmade.

  4. Love this nursery! I can't wait to see a tour of the whole room!

  5. What a sweet and non-traditional color scheme for a boy. Love the drapes! ~Kerri, A Pop of Pretty
