Share

Check out Part 1 of this DIY Vintage Nursery design to see how we painted the walls and installed a chair rail. In Part 2, we complete the room by bringing in all the furniture, including some thrift store and flea market finds and putting up a DIY cloud mobile and baseball bat clothing rack! We also gave big-sister-to-be a special princess corner in the outdoor patio!

Watch the video above to see the transformation and hilarity! Supplies and steps for the DIYs seen in this video are below!

Do It!:

  1. Prep your wood or deck by sanding
  2. Clean wood with water and rag
  3. Scrub wood with diluted deck cleaner, rinse and let dry.
  4. For hopscotch: measure and tape off hopscotch outline using painters tape and a measuring tape. I made each square a foot.
  5. Paint the wood or deck (within the painter’s tape lines for hopscotch) with the DeckOver and let dry! Tip: use a thick coat as it helps fill in any indents in the wood.
  6. For hopscotch: draw in your numbers with the sidewalk chalk or you could paint them for a permanent result.

Hi,

I'm working on my own baseball bat/hooks project and am interested in the hooks you used for yours. Could you share info. on the name/type/source?

Thanks!

Hi Sarah!

The ones we used were coat rack hooks from IKEA. Instead of screwing on the top finial, we screwed it into the bat instead!

Hope this helps! xo
