The giant E initial on the door welcomes you in and strongly hints at the nautical theme. The large wooden letter is from Hobby Lobby. A local map is attached with rubber cement and mod podge on top to seal it. The navy and white stripe detail is scrapbook paper with rope trim glued onto each side. The 3-dimensional anchor is made of cardboard and spray painted red. The same rope trim is tied on. The circle on the bottom is a nautical compass rose with rope edging. E's sisters have initials on their bedroom doors depicting their bedroom themes too. A, O, & E (looks like oversized apartment addresses)
In this transformation, the walls, carpet, Ikea book shelves, chalkboard, and curtain rods stayed the same. New chevron curtains were on clearance at Bed, Bath and Beyond. I bought four panels. Two for the window and two to replace the closet door. More on that later. For the window, I purchased blackout liners at Lowes. I didn't even know about this product until I checked into it. They help to block out light and insulate the window. These liners simply hook onto the top of the curtains. Much easier and more effective than sewing in liners! Chair and ottoman from Target, pillow Bed, Bath and Beyond.

This little drum table was found in our basement under a heavy tablecloth when we moved into this house. The legs were wobbly and the top had water damage. I repaired the table as best as I could. For the finish I mixed a few different colors of paint that I already had to create this orange-red color. To distress it, I used a dark grey glaze. For the tabletop I cut a map into a circle and placed it under a piece of glass. The map is not glued down. I like how the paint brings out the details & it also coordinates well with the crib and armoire, which are walnut.
The tied back curtain below is on the closet in place of the door. The door didn't have room to swing out because of the large furniture in a small space. The rope tie back is from Bed, Bath and Beyond and the nautical cleat is from Ace Hardware. Rope hooks on driftwood are from Marshall's/Homegoods.
The chalkboard was painted onto the wall with white paint bordering it. The anchor hooks were the first nautical thing I bought for this room. I found them at an eclectic little shop in New Orleans while on vacation. I was so excited about them! Fast forward to now and they sell the same hooks at Kohl's, go figure! The oar is from Marshall's/Homegoods, picture frames from Kohl's (still need to add my favorite pictures).
