Once I found out I was having a girl, I started collecting all kinds of inspiration for creating a vintage, crafty room for her! I had a list of projects a mile long - it was a good thing I had almost 5 months to finish it, it took every bit of it! I started with a bird/owl/tree theme but it ended up being more of an eclectic mix.
I was inspired by many things I saw on Etsy and various craft blogs, as well as wanting to include several items I had saved and collected to create a vintage feel. Several things in her room were saved from my own nursery - I think if something has a story behind it, it is so much more special.
Eclectic, for sure - I don't like anything new! Flea markets and estate sales are my go-to places for design - I love to find something grungy and fix it up to look amazing. I am constantly "projecting", as my husband calls it! I don't like a shabby chic look, I prefer more of a mid-century vintage look with some modern flair.
I love the wallpapered ceiling, I love the changing table, I love the bird mobile, and I love the barnwood mirror, but I think my favorite thing is the tree bookshelf - it is so special since it was made from wood cut on my grandad's farmland, and I hope it will be a cherished heirloom for Reagan in the years to come.
