completed nursery and some other stuff;)August 1, 2011
so here it is…i think my favorite part about it all is that when i look around, i can honestly say that almost everything in here was either thrifted, gifted, made, or repurposed. i’ll do my best to explain as i go…
crib- gifted from mimi and papa:)
bumper, sheets, quilt, birds- made by me, and a lot of fabrics used were some that i already had in my stash!
painted tree- done with a paint tester that i had on hand, and free handed.
window and closet coverings- cornice made by me, and curtains are made from flat sheets and trimmed out with little pink balls:)
frames- purchased at ikea and i added teal lace hem tape to the mattes. these belly pics will be replaced by pics of her once she’s here:)
lamp- need a better picture of it, but it’s a vintage 40’s art deco glass lamp. picked it up super cheap and re-wired it. added a new lamp shade.
teal side table- purchased from my friend tamar and painted it teal to match the dresser.
chair-given to me by my sweet mom and i made a new slipcover for it with fabric i found at joann’s on clearance for $3 a yard! not bad for $18! i can’t wait to spend time holding, rocking and nursing her in it!
ikea white lack nesting tables- given to me by my friend joanne.
shelves- $1.99 spice racks from ikea spray painted to coordinate:)
vintage books- pulled from brothers room
picture of brothers and puzzle and sophie gifts:)
bird hooks-from joanns and spray painted white.
sling-made by me to carry my baby girl in:)
dresser- $80 find on craigslist. painted it to match teal piping used on bumper and trim for quilt. painted out original hardware white.
white frames- purchased from ikea and the prints were actually pulled from a book of birds by charley harper. this is what started the whole room!!
white lined baskets- purchased at home goods and i made the liners out of scraps from the bumpers.
piggy bank- um this is my favorite part:) gift from mimi:)
a couple of outfits i dyed and embellished for her before i put away all of my sewing the other day. i can’t wait to put her in them along with her little hairbows from louandlee!
here i am at 37 weeks! funny how i feel so incredibly HUGE and then i look at this and realize i’m pretty small this time around. hopefully that will translate to a petite baby :)
and clearly i’ve been having way too much fun gathering baby girls diaper stash :)
the countdown has begun…
