Vintage Name Banner for my Boys

Oooooh doggie...this winter is getting long. With three boys 6 and under cooped up all day...things are bound to get crazy.

I'd had enough today, so after wrestle-mania in the basement, my ears couldn't take it any longer. So they did wrestle-mania in the snow.

I was raised with sisters only, so all of this "gotta move every minute of the day" stuff is very new to me. But they did stand still for a minute to look cute.

I was sick this weekend, so no major projects got finished, but I did manage to make these banners for over the boys' beds. I've had this idea for awhile, but there was alwayse some big furniture piece taking up time. They share a room and I'm just putting some finishing touches on the room before revealing all of the thrifted wonderfulness here on Fab Rehab.

I know...it's messy, but there are few times in life that it isn't messy so I'm keepin' it real here!

As for the banners, I obviously need a sharper scissors...goodness my hand almost fell off. Of course, I needed to name my children long names, so that doesn't help. They aren't perfect, but I'm relatively happy with them. Enjoy!

Love the banners. I had a brother that always needed to move and I was a tomboy so I went with him...everywhere! Hope you're feeling better!

Your boys are adorable! I have two myself and I would love to make these for them. They are obsessed with their names. Coming over from Transformation Thursday and your newest follower!

Brillient job on the banners! I love bunting, and I think yours are rather inspired. The rustic edges make it even more masculine - and right up my ally! Well done. :)

I am loving the dark navy with the pine trim. I have a lot of this trim in my house. I'd love to see what your kitchen looks like...do you have this trim everywhere?
