I had every intention of getting started blogging again, and then life happened. Since my last post... I went through an entire pregnancy and had a healthy baby girl. Time flies! Sadie was born on April 4th and we are just smitten with her. She is the final puzzle piece that we never realized our family was missing. She's pretty awesome.
I am not even sure if anyone even reads this little blog anymore, I could be completely blogging to radio silence... but I wanted to update on Sadie's precious nursery. Her room turned out so much better than I even imagined. I'm honestly a bit sad that my own room isn't this pretty. I initially tried to work with the dark gray walls that were here, but the room was just begging to be painted pink. I decided on Sherwin Williams White Dogwood, an ultra light pink with peach undertones. It was the perfect shade of pink and not too sweet.
The chandelier is from Home Depot and also got a coat of gold paint.
The dresser was a goodwill find that I painted with homemade chalk paint and then waxed for a more durable finish.
Her bed was my sister's and mine when we were babies way back in the 80's, so it was one of those dangerous vintage Jenny Lind cribs. We secured the sides so that they no longer moved and I decided it needed to be painted gold! The gold makes all the difference!
I painted the art above her bed, and the tiny flamingo paintings you see glimpses of in other photos. Her bumpers are Pottery Barn and the skirt I made out of a white sheet. The rug is from Rugs USA and I don't recommend it. It is already so dirty with only 1 month of use and has proven impossible to clean. Who was I to think we could have something white and fluffy in our house?? I am in the process of looking for a more life friendly replacement.
Over all, I'd say it turned out quite nicely! Sadie has been enjoying her fancy room!
