Nursery Project

Recommended Posts

I thought some of you would enjoy this project of mine. We are expecting our first baby on 1/31/11 so I wanted to make some things for the nursery to personalize it. If you look around, there is a new trend forming around the world of decorating a nursery. Putting the name of the baby above the crib seems to be the new IN thing. I didn't like any of the decals or wooden carved letters so I smithed her name myself. Also, (no blacksmithing involved) I fab-ed a little end-table for next to the rocking chair. This is what I came up with....

Your hand writing is better in iron than mine is with a pencil!

Great job.

Thanks for all the good words and blessings. I am currently working on some angle brackets for shelves to hang on the wall. The plan is to make the shelves out of the same cherry wood and with the same routed edges as the end-table. This is my first project incorporating wood with iron work, and cherry is NOT cheap.

Nice job on the name, she will have it as a constant reminder of Pop and be able to pass it on to the folowing generation, can't say that about stencils and decals. A new family heirloom.
