Before William Preston was born (or WP as we call him on the internets), I had the unique situation of being able to design a room from scratch. The whole room. At one time. I don't know about you, but if my husband came home one day and I had done this to any other room in the house, I might be in trouble. However, when a BABY comes along, all bets are off!
So much of his room was done by me and my mother by hand, that one post will not do it justice. And I really should start withe paint and work my way up from there, but well, I don't feel like, and this is my blog.
WP's mobile is actually a late addition to his room. I made it for him for Christmas, and we just got it hung up. I looked for a mobile I liked, but honestly, I just couldn't find one I liked that I was willing to pay for. With a little searching on the internet, I had an idea of where I needed to go.
I started by picking up some felt in the colors of his room (about 20 cents a piece at your Michael's). I sketched out a pattern and used those patterns to cut the pieces of felt. I chose robots, since that became the theme of his room (but that's a whole other story).
We're renting, so I didn't want to put a permanent large hole in the ceiling. Since mine is on the smaller side, I used a Command hook that was intended for Christmas lights. We tied the fishing line to the command hook, and stuck it to the ceiling.
