I knew y’all would love the nursery bedding and bed crown from yesterday! And I know you will love today’s post because one of you will get to win one! Woohoo! Today I wanted to give you a few more details about it and show you how I hung up the curtains etc. It was so easy.
First things first though. I want to emphasize how secure the crown is attached to the wall above the crib. Please know I would NEVER ever put anything that I would not feel was safe for the baby to sleep under. It is screwed into the wall with 6 screws and that baby isn’t coming down. When Ellie is older and pulling up and such, I will make sure she cannot pull the fabric down or anything either and will even pull the crib out from the wall if necessary. The pink satin fabric is even nailed into the wall (where you can’t see) for extra security. ALSO, the baby does not sleep with the blanket on the side of the crib like I have it in the picture. That was just to stage the photo. Whew, there, disclaimer done for now. :)
Okay, so remember the beautiful crown/corona?
As I mentioned yesterday, it came from Antique Drapery Rod Company. You know what’s great about them? Is that they are proudly made in the U.S.A.! They are actually one of the last Artisanal American Hardware companies in the US.
When it arrived I was in awe at the craftsmanship knowing it was hand made.
It’s made of resin material.
The inside has a rod where you can attach whatever drapery you want.
I saved quite a bit of money just by going to the fabric store and picking out some fabric to hang on there, rather than buying curtains. I just used some stitch witchery tape and made a hem at the top so I could loop it through the rod.
This pink satin fabric is in the back, and I bought some light pink shimmery tulle for the sides. The fabric is attached to the wall so please know this is NOT a hazard. When she is big enough to sit up and pull up on things, I will tie back the tulle sides and pull the crib away from the wall. Please don’t worry I love my baby!!
After we installed the crown on the wall (very securely), I just had to set this in there on the hooks. It was a very easy process but again we took great precaution to install it. I just love how it turned out though.
And how would you like to win one of your own? Well Antique Drapery Rod Company wants to give one of you a chance to win the bed corona just like I received, in your color of choice (my color is called Renaissance Gold). And that’s a $300.00 value folks!
