Jayden’s Nautical Nursery and DIY Life Preserver

38 weeks and nesting. This week I was able to work on putting together Jayden’s temporary nursery at my parents house.

The only difficulties I had was making the cloth smooth around the wreath. I used pins to play around with the cloth, and when I was satisfied with how it looked I superglued the pieces together.

Let me know what ya’ll think. ?

    […] The glider we bought on Wayfair along with several other items in his room. I love it because for the quality you can’t beat the price. Instead of paying $500 at a department store, we only payed $250 online. The nautical ring I personally made myself. You can find the DIY here. […]
