Baby & Big Girl Room - Part 3 - The Clothesline

Remember I told you these blocks were inspiration for the design of this room...

So, I bought two wooden circle plaques for $1.00 and spray painted them black...

I also bought an A (Avery) & M (Mia) knob from Hobby Lobby and had my husband put them into the wooden circles. He then screwed the wooden circles right into the wall for me. I attached a pink grosgrain ribbon to each of them and that became my clothesline...

My sister had given me a pack of old fashioned clothespins at one point that I was saving for just the right project. This was it.

I then found some simple and cute things to hang from the clothesline. I used a plain white baby t-shirt, baby bloomers, a cute burp cloth...

an old baby dress that was mine, and some leftover pink toile fabric...

I was so excited when I finally found just the right things to go up on the clothesline...

And the best thing about this part of the room is that can be changed at any time. I can put up different clothes, linens, or fabric. As they get older, I can replace the clothes with photographs and/or artwork they create. Gotta love a versatile decoration, especially in a growing kids room.

I will be linking up to these parties this week!

Happy Tuesday! I'll be back tomorrow with part 4 out of 5 in the series!

Tiffany this is so cute! I'm trying to find a way to use this in an adult room!

Jessica, I think it would be awesome to hang large photographs from the clothesline, maybe black & whites with white borders? That is the way I picture it and probably what the future of the girls clothesline will hold! : )

My 4 year old has an art string made of twine and clothespins. Same idea, but yours is so much cuter!

TIffany, the room is looking so good. I really like the clothesline. I am trying to come up with a similar idea for our dining room, so your project is helping my wheels turn. ALso, liked the mobile last week. It turned out really cute. Miss you all! -Julie

Okay, didn't do something right. The last "anonymous" comment was from your sister-in-law, Julie. :)

Very cute! I love the initials on the knobs. Any idea where your sister got the clothes pins? They are great!
