Ocean Room: Complete

This, along with the new fuse box and the stairs, was on my to-do list to complete in the first week of maternity leave. Since I last posted about the ocean room, we’d been adding things bit by bit: a mattress, bedding, a dresser … more onesies than any one baby really needs … you name it. But it was missing the final touches, and most of those were either hand-made by us or by one of our many talented and delightful friends and family members.

I went a bit overboard with the Silhouette Cameo to print these out in white adhesive vinyl.

This amazing crocheted jellyfish mobile was a gift from the highly talented Fussellette.

She also MADE (MADE!) this amazing ocean-themed blanket. I still can’t even deal with how amazing it is.

These jellyfish crib sheets were whipped up by Cait’s ever-talented mom.

Rusty made sure that baby wouldn’t miss out on a very first baseball glove, and it gets pride of place on an octopus hook.

Even Trav contributed a wee piece of art.

Mrs. Nice found the inspiration for this on Pinterest, and made it for us MONTHS ago. I’m so glad we could finally put it up.

Even the Pie’s favourite animal the anglerfish gets a spot in the baby’s room. Guarding the deep sea vents. Get it? VENTS.

Even this rocking chair is handmade, by either my great-great grandfather or my great-great uncle.

You like the ship? Again, I went crazy with the Silhouette. The knobs on the dresser are supposed to look like the sorts of things you pick up on the beach – most of them are from Lee Valley, actually, and others my mother has given me over the years.

Everything else was kind of stuff we already had fromΒ our oceanic travels.

So it really wasn’t hard to stick with a theme.

Now we just need a baby to come and live here (and you never know: by the time you read this, there might be one!).

      1. Ohhh, a seaweed one would be cool, too. πŸ™‚ Yes, I know things for other people are more motivating somehow. But I hope you find time to do one, it would look really cool. πŸ™‚

  2. It looks amazing! And I like the anglerfish an awful lot. And the drawer pulls! And the ship on the dresser!

    Oh, and apparently you can’t have enough onesies. Babies require a lotta laundry! Hope you are doing well and everything goes swimmingly!
    (Soooo sorry, couldn’t resist)

  3. Love the decoration scheme, esp all the cephalopods and jellies! I wish my hubby and I owned our own home so we could do something like this for our son.
