Eli's Modern Cowboy Room

My Room

Name: Eli (due Oct. 2012)
Location: Elkins, West Virginia

My husband and I wanted to create a space that was fun, bright and comfortable for the baby and for us. We had a tight budget so we really focused on using things we already owned to create a great space.

My husband really wanted to name this baby Hank (he lost that battle!) so the Hank Williams poster is a nod to that desire. We already owned and loved the poster so the color scheme and overall "modern cowboy" feel was born from there. We didn't have money in the budget to frame all of the prints we had on hand so I decided to use clothespins as a cool way to hang the artwork. They added just the right amount of color and personality to the space. We added some other small DIY touches like the banner and the mobile to make it a little bit more personal for our little man. Hopefully he loves it as much as we do!!
