My Life of Travels and Adventures: Baby Name Basket

Baby Name Basket

26 November 2011

A while ago, while wandering the internet,  I saw some wooden blocks with letters on them.  I decided that I wanted them for the baby's room.  

Well, after shopping around, I decided upon a wooden box with the baby's name on it.  
Another fun project for me. 

After deciding to paint the box the accent colors from the nursery, I went to town.  It seemed like an easy paint job but then I noticed the tiny little slot all the way around the box.  Ugh!
I also decided to paint the letters white.  (We got these 4" letters at hobby lobby.  They were on sale for $0.69 and the package included 2 letters.  Score!)
After super glueing the name on the box, it was all set.  
I wasn't sure where I wanted to box to go once it was in the nursery.  Here it is filled with another baby room project.
Ultimately, I decided the box should go on the dresser.   Neil noted that a box of baby wipes fit perfectly in the one opening.  I put the moose we bought in Alaska for the baby in the other opening.  
Not to shabby!  You can see the paper lanterns that we previously installed in this picture.

  1. love this project, can you tell us the sources for the letters and the box?

  2. I purchased the wooden box at Joann's for around $7.00 and the letters as a pair at Hobby Lobby for $0.69.

  3. Nice! Thanks! This weekend will be Nursery project weekend with the family, and I am thinking of doing this box and maybe the lego project also! I hope u don't mind me being a copy cat! You have such inspirational ideas! I have another random questions for you.... my nursery is sock monkey theme... brown and reds mostly... but my daughter came up with the idea to add a touch of color and incorporate a teel blue into the nursery also. I see you have a teel blue sock monkey blanket in your nursery... can I ask where you purchased? Thanks so much!

  4. The blanket is from Ikea. It was only a few $ and the right colors for us. Let me know how your projects turn out.

  7. Never found the blanket at Ikea here in Northern CA. :(
