Between decorating the girls room and organizing the nursery, I have been a busy bee. I worked on the nursery this afternoon and it isn't done but it is getting there. That is one of my favorite collages (that is my mom when she was 12) and the frame sits above a dresser that we are going to use as a changing table.
I bought this dresser at a consignment shop when we lived in Detroit and my husband was so mad that I bought it. I am not sure why but when he moved it in the nursery he said this is a really nice dresser....I just laughed. Standing in the nursery the bulletin board doesn't look crooked but looking at this photo, it does look a bit off. I will make a mental note to check it with a level.
That is my christening dress on the left and it is a bit yellow now but I still think it is sweet. The dress on the right is my absolute favorite dress, my daughter Lily-Grace wore it when she turned one. I kept on laying more vintage dresses and slips and my oldest daughter said Momma, don't junk it up...sometime you don't know when to stop. She is right!
This cornice has been everywhere....on Olivia's window in Detroit, above Lily-Grace's bed and now on Lucy's window. Yes, I do know how to recycle. I made this from a kit that I bought at JoAnn's and after I bought it, I never found another kit again. It was so easy to make and I just love it.
This is on the front door....I wanted something pretty on the front of the door so when she is crying at least I can see something that will make me smile when I am entering the nursery.
My project for tonight was to paint that table but I am too tired. I will tackle it another day. That white slip covered chair has followed us from house to house and I just can't seem to get rid of it. I think it will be perfect for those late night feeding with the chandelier lit behind us. I thought my husband was going to flip out when I told him that I was going to hang the vintage dresses on the wall and I thin he must be use to me by now, he said OK whatever you say. Now that is a good husband uh? On the other side of the window is this blue dress. I have a gorgeous peach vintage prom gown that layers and layers of tulle but unfortunately the pink and peach don't look good together. I am sure I will find a use for it because I can't keep it in the closet.
I really don't have a lot of room to display any pretties since I am using the dresser as a changing table. So they are all jammed packed on one shelf.
Here are some close up photos.
I went the thrift store during the week and I bought a new bumper and crib sheets all for $3.00. They were from Pottery Barn Kids and they are soft pink with big cabbage roses on the front of the bumper and on the reverse side is a small rose print. I told the lady at store my poor third child, she is getting all of the things her sisters didn't want anymore in their rooms and now she is getting a thrift store bedding. She just laughed. I didn't get a great photo of the crib but here is one. I wish the crib was creamy white and not this dark color but after this baby...WE ARE DONE!
This little chair is actually for Lily-Grace so she can sit with me when I am feeding Lucy. She is very excited.
I still have a few more months to make some tweaks here and there. Now the next phase is to wash all of the baby clothing that I have been storing. I am not looking forward to that task.
Have a great night....I am off to watch a movie and drink some hot tea.
