My Boys Monday - Bumpers and Mobile

All the stuff I was planning on making for the nursery got finished last week! It took me forever to figure out the mobile, but thankfully I ran across this tutorial over at Lolly Jane Boutique. I used Munch's old mobile and black and white pictures of Elvis, Chuck Berry, Bruce "The Boss" Springsteen and Jimmy Page. I also found some clip art of a record that fit perfectly over the music box and edited a cute little tape I found at Sj's Little Musings. Here is the close up.
Works well on 22 month olds, let's hope that it works just as well keeping a new baby entertained. :o) Also got the bumpers finished. I was a little worried about finishing these. I was thinking they were going to be a HUGE job. Thankfully the bumpers came with instructions on how to cover them, so I tweeked the instructions a little and they were finished in no time!
And that's it...just need to install the ceiling fan, put together a small shelving unit and we ordered a vinyl name sign for above the crib. Once that's complete I'll give you guys a full tour of the finished room...hopefully with baby included!!

This baby is going to be one cool dude or chick, a rock chick or rock-n-roll dude, can't fail to be! Munch seems to be showing a lot of interest too! Love the tie on his t-shirt in your former post, adorable! Love Vanessa xxx
