Gone are the days of “room in a bag” and Disney-themed wall paper. Nowadays, parents are opting to roll up their sleeves and spend time designing and assembling their little one’s nursery with the same consideration and taste as the rest of their home. Traditional pastel paint colours have made way for “grown-up” colour schemes and decor. Wallpaper with cartoon clowns and jungle animals has been replaced with modern graphics and sophisticated floral prints. Hand-sewn quilts, vintage artwork and “upcycled” furniture are all the rage, meaning parents-to-be are spending an awful lot of time perusing garage sales, scouring Pinterest and throwing themselves into the DIY revolution. Today we feature baby Easton’s nursery.

I usually don’t pull out all craft stops for Canada Day the way I do for Easter, Christmas, Valentine’s and everything else in between. An extra day off is often spent at a cottage or on some Ontario beach. This year, though, we have a few people over, so I decided to make a quick, festive backyard BBQ table setting with a hand-stamped burlap runner as masterpiece. You know me, I am a runner girl in more ways than one (have a look at the grass Easter Table Runner I posted for Easter – ps: great recycle for a summer outdoor setting with colorful flowers — but I am getting off track).
