As some of you know, we live in a 1 bedroom condo. Once I got pregnant we thought about possibly moving, but because of the economy (and the idea of moving while pregnant didn't sound like fun) we decided to stay in our place. One of the biggest challenges was turning our walk-in closet into the baby's room. It was a lot of work- but I'm so excited with the way it turned out!!
For the baby's room I wanted it to be a nice mix of modern and vintage. Zach painted the wall with a stencil I found on etsy. He used a non-toxic silver paint to get it a clean modern look. We also repainted the dresser white and grey (which I found for $5 at a garage sale) to use as our changing table. My mom and I have been collecting fun vintage baby items at estate sales. This old metal scale is one of my favorite finds. We also found this metal circus tray in Chicago over the summer when I was about 8 weeks pregnant. I knew right away I wanted to hang it in the nursery.
The other pieces hanging above the crib are also vintage, maybe from the 60's. The middle one is paper dolls you can cut out and change the outfits. The one of the right is titled "What is a Girl" - you can tell it's dated from the text, but it's so precious. The fabric wreath and pennent banner were giving to me at my baby shower! They are both handmade and the colors are just perfect!
