Rock and Roll Window Treatments -  Country and Western Musical Custom Nursery Window Valance

Rock and Roll Window Treatments - Country and Western Musical Custom Nursery Window Valance

I found some cool rock and roll baby nursery ideas that I had somehow overlooked while looking through some pictures that were submitted to the baby nursery picture contest last year.

The nursery window valance that is in the photo was originally used to decorate a country theme nursery but as you will see it would be so easy to substitute classic (or hard or punk) rock albums to decorate the cornice rather than country and western albums making it perfect for a rock and roll baby's room!

Ashley McWhorter, the mom that sent in the pictures of her son's guitar nursery theme said she picked up her musical nursery decorating ideas during a visit to a coffee shop in Tomball.

She says that she bought all of the record albums at an estate Sale for a dollar ($1) each except for a Johnny Cash album that was a gift from a sweet friend, Molly.

She said that people have asked her why she chose a "vintage musical guitar" theme (rather than a rock and roll baby nursery?) and that the idea came to her one day when she saw her husbands guitars sitting in their office. And after she got started she said that Cash's "all boy" nursery was so much fun to decorate after having decorated two nurseries for her two daughters!

Ashley says that the musical theme window valance was her mom's idea and I'll bet she never dreamed that her country and western baby nursery ideas would be passed along to decorators looking for rock and roll baby nursery ideas!


They broke the back off of a shelf that they bought and converted what was supposed to be the top into the front.

After they spray painted it red (you could use any color you needed) they spaced the records that they bought evenly across it.

The fabric that is gathered underneath has musical notes printed all over it. The background was too bright white, so they tea stained the fabric to give it a rustic look. After the fabric was the color they wanted they used a hot glue gun to glue the fabric to the wooden molding of the windows.

The color of the cornice board is barn red and rustic and the record albums are country, but all that can be changed to work with your rock and roll baby nursery ideas and you can choose record labels to match your chosen color scheme!
