Quilt Clip DIY and a Video

Hi friends!  So, the nursery is still a work in progress.  I'm convinced that by the time I have it where I want it Tenley will be ready for a new theme:)  That doesn't take the fun out of the decorating though!

I've been wanting to hang her quilt above her bed but was stuck on how I would hang it because this bedding line does not have matching quilt clips.
I remembered these great clips at Hobby Lobby!

I purchased two medium sized clips.  You can find them in the unfinished wood section and make sure you either use a coupon or wait until wood is on sale.  Otherwise, they are pretty pricey!

I painted them a red that I had mixed at Home Depot to coordinate with the bedding.  I also distressed the edges a bit with my 3M sanding block.

I purchased these sawtooth hangers at Wal-Mart for about $1.00.

I hammered one sawtooth hanger to the back of each clip.

Then I just had to hang them and clamp the quilt down!






Whitney and I have had a lot of requests to share our nurseries with you all.  To be honest, my nursery is just now finally ready to share!  Like I said, it is a work in progress but I'm excited with the way it is turning out so, the best way for me to share it with you all is a video. 





Most of the items in the nursery were either free or bought at a second hand store.  The bed, bedding and chandelier are the only pieces that I purchased brand new!  I love that every piece in her nursery has a story and that the stories will continue from here:)  I hope you enjoyed my little video peek!

Thanks so much for stopping by:)
