M.M...Nursery

Do you all remember Charity?  I did a Makeover Monday for her Master Bedroom...well she just sent me some pictures of her Nursery!  I love it!  I asked her if I could share these pictures...they are beautiful!  She is due REALLY soon with her first baby...and a boy at that:)  I love Charity's style and I think she did such a fabulous job!!  Here is what she says about the baby's room via Project Nursery:

I made the bedding and recovered the chair (purchased off Craigslist) and the bookcase idea was borrowed from Penny Carnival I used Anna Marie Horner fabrics which I purchased from Intown Quilters



The biggest investment in the room was the dresser from Haverty's (in the clearance section) - everything else was put together and created by me and my husband. The crib, though new, was inexpensive!
I painted a lot of the frames myself and bought some off Etsy from The Art of Chic.
Artwork came from Trafalgar's Square and JK Vinyl Designs along with a few special pieces from friends, and a diaper caddy I had when I was a baby.

 I made the window treatments which are hung with simple knobs (use toggle bolts!) and string/clothes pins- the quilt is hung the same way! Very inexpensive and it makes a statement, for sure my favorite part of the room.
Design inspiration: The quilt hanging above the crib - I didn't make the top, but I did do the finish work on it - my first quilt and not an easy task!


I found it at an antique store on a trip to Connecticut at 15 weeks pregnant and said, if it's a boy, this is his nursery inspiration!

 Favorite items:
The bookcases! Or, the dresser? Or collage of frames with his family? The quilt above his bed, or even the bedding?! I can't pick just one...

Everything I gathered was put together by love - there is nothing on his walls/floors/dresser/shelves that is not special to us...

  1. Ahh!! I'm flattered that you posted this!! It's still my favorite room in our home :) Oh wait, it's the only completed room in the home! And baby arrived on March 19th and I think he might like it, too ;) Wait, I think all he likes is sleeping, pooping, and mommies boob...

  2. PS - I will add that literally every single person (aside from my bff @ metcalfcrew.blogpot.com) doubted what I was doing - everything from the colors/fabric/placements, people thought I was crazy. My advice is to find that one person you can bounce things off of (again, BFF Megan) and ignore the critics - go with your gut!
    However, don't forget to keep a focal or things will/can get carried away. For me it was the quilt. Find your inspiration and the rest will come.
