Baby Lowery's Nursery

I hope you won't mind me interrupting the usual standard of wedding stationery posts to share my latest design with you... Baby Lowery's nursery! :)

With one week until my due date, I am thrilled to say the nursery is finally complete!
Between wrapping up orders with Blush Paperie and moving into a new home everything ended up being pretty last minute.


I had dreams of painting the nursery walls with thick gray & white horizontal stripes... however, since we are renting our new home, that was not to be. I was able to bring in thick horizontal stripes through these curtains I made. The fabric was originally laid out as a vertical pattern, but I cut the fabric in half and sewed it together half way down to create the horizontal pattern.



Lauren (our trusty pup) has already taken her place in the nursery :)
The chair is a wing back chair we had recovered in Waverly's Cross Section in Charcoal. I'm pretty in love with that preppy pattern!

And the little blue & orange cars in front of the upper left gray bin in the book case are actually wooden cars my husband's grandfather made for him when he was a child!



I designed and printed the art work above the dresser. You can't see from this photo, but the whale and sale boat have little gray polka dots in them.



I bought wooden letters at Michael's and covered them with left over fabric from the chair.


The book holders are actually spice racks from ikea, a wonderful (and very thrifty) idea I saw on a home design blog (sorry, I forget which one).

Hopefully, very soon, I'll be back with photos of Baby Lowery :)
