Hooray for crossing things off my to-do list! I’ve had this one on my list for about 5 months now. Since we didn’t find out the gender before Cadence was born, the nursery didn’t really get any love until she was born. I took the inspiration for her room from the fabric I chose to recover the glider, if you missed that check it out HERE. I’m not really trying to do ‘rainbow’ as much as I just want to use bright, happy, colors, not just pink. I’m not much of a pink girl.
Anyway, here’s how I did it.
Using a thrifted crib sheet, I laid it over the frame.
Then I marked where the openings between the slats were. I made sure the marks were at least at the innermost edge of the frame.
Then I cut on those lines. Going back they probably should have been a little farther apart.
Now for the tulle. I got this stash of tulle on such an amazing sale at Hancock Fabrics right around Halloween. I think it was like $0.75/yard or something like that.
I folded it in half (hot dog style?) and cut it in 5 inch strips.
After counting the marks around the crib sheet I figured out how many I needed and did all my cutting at once.
Then I simply just looped the tulle through the holes I had cut. I didn’t cut the tulle down any, just fed the folded edge down and through the hole.
Continue all the way around and the crib skirt is done just like that!
I love how it turned out and that it matches the glider so well. Now to get some things up on the wall and maybe a rug in here or something.
I think she likes it too! lol
oh and look he wanted in on the photo shoot. Mr.Ben is a ham in front of the camera saying, “Cheeeese” haha.
