If you are a regular reader, you know I'm currently expecting baby number five (in less than 15 days! EEK!!)

I've been wanting to make the new baby something special and as you can imagine, being the 5th baby means I don't need a lot. Even so, I did want a special place for baby in our room and I've had a vision of a unique baby mobile from the start.

Here's what you'll need...
Supplies for DIY Leather Mobile

This first step is optional...
In my case I didn't want the chrome finish on the photo mobile, so I chose to spray paint it in a metallic finish (Flat Chestnut by Rust-Oleum). I found my mobile on Amazon for $11.00!

The rest is easy!
