I saw this amazing DIY baby entertainment center on one of my favorite blogs to read. Made by Joel, and decided I too will make these for my babies!

So I printed the free download, found some cardboard for the top, painted it red, found a piece if wood to use for the base and some wire to hold the mobile. And after three months of planning and finding just the right materials for this project here is what I made.

No good. Its not tall enough. The wire is not stiff enough to hold the weight of the paper mobile and being a new mom of twins I no longer have the time to go searching home depot for just the right metal wire.

So I improvised….

And they love it! They just stare and stare. One of these days I’ll color some red on the little squares. But it does the job for now. So even though the project didn’t turn out as planned, we got something that works for us. Seams to be an ongoing theme this year in our house.
