Name: Baby Lincoln Location: Hollywood, CA I didn't have a lot of money to spend, so I really had to use things I had and get crafty. The inspiration for the room came from my husband's autographed Ringo Starr drumsticks. When I was clearing out the room I really didn't know what to do with them, and I had to keep them or my husband would be upset (I personally don't love the style of the framing.) So, I decided, we love the Beatles and wouldn't it be fun to do sort of a Beatles nursery. Also, I really love eco-friendly items (I used to own an eco boutique in Austin,TX) so we went for an eco-friendly Beatles psychedelic under water yellow submarine nursery. Almost everything in the nursery is repurposed from things we already owned. Like a set of Dwell sheets that had worn a hole in them, so I cut them up. We had been holding on to all these toys as well that my husband wouldn't part with over the years. I have to thank him for being a packrat because it was fun to use them in the nursery. Source List: • Crib-Sparrow by Ouef- I totally lucked out on this. I got it for $200 as a floor sample at Buy Buy Baby. I couldn't believe it. This was the crib I wanted, but couldn't afford, and I was going to get an Ikea crib, but I saw this and snatched it. • Crib Sheet-giggle • Octopus-handmade by mommy • Crib Skirt-Clara fabric by Mod Green Pod-I made it. • Magic Mushroom-I made it • Yellow Submarine-etsy • All You Need is Love mobile-homemade • Changing table-Ikea Trondheim chest • Soft cars-shopwee • Stuffed Cats-blablakids • Sofa-Ikea Ektorp • Sofa pillows-handmade • Bird Curtains and pillows-handmade from our old sheets/Dwell pattern • Robot-1980's, it was my husband's • Artwork-all from etsy • Frames-Ikea Ribba • Patchwork quilt-thrift store in Lincoln, NE/99 cents • Fisher Price globe-1980s and it was my husband's • Tree table-vintage • Rag rug and fluffy rug-both Ikea Thanks, Amanda!
