Well folks, baby cake's nursery is pretty much complete! (I reserve the right to tweak it here and there...)
It is a unique assortment of pieces
- little white bookshelf
- glider rocking chair
that were gifted to us
- the bed
- the floral arrangements
- the antique pram
- many wonderful baby shower items
that are DIY projects
- the butterfly chandelier mobile
- the "chandelier" light fixture
- the floral appliques on the bedding
- the baby mattress
and items we purchased from a variety of places!
Some of my favorite places to find great deals or just look for inspiration:
- Home Goods
- TJ Maxx
- Goodwill - not that "inspirational"- but you never know when you will find some great treasure...
The GBSC summer Maintenance Department crew painted the nursery and did a fantastic job for which I am so thankful!
I chose the paint which is Sherwin Williams, "Hinting Blue." The trim and shutters are in Sherwin Williams "Extra White."
Some people have asked me what my theme is. And I say, "That is a very good question!"
My theme is kinda hard to pin down. I was going for more of a "feeling" than an actual theme.
Light, Airy & Peaceful
I love the vintage look, and there is something appealing about old storybooks.
I also find birds & nests really charming and rather appropriate for a nursery.
Disclaimer: regarding those friendly feathered creatures- I am NOT into the cartoon look or too realistic look... something more "betweenish." Capisci?
Below are the pictures of the nursery. Of course, it won't really be "completely complete" until she is here.
As they say, "That's all she wrote..."
