I had been seeing a lot of stuff on Pinterest lately that totally sparked my creative juices for the nursery. Once I picked the teal color for the wall, everything else just seemed to fall into place.
Repurposing beautiful things for modern functionality.
A couple of things I particularly love about the room are the old coke crates on the walls as shelving, removing the closet doors and adding curtains, adding ribbon trim at the bottom of the sheer curtains for a pop of color, the leftover scrapbook paper bunting, and the vintage elements all throughout the room that I found at antique stores and my grandmother's house.
Probably the furniture. It started out at dingy old chestnut colored dressers, but my wonderful husband painted them a crisp white and I refinished the little knobs to be silver, and replaced the old handles with new silver pull cups.
Just look for stuff you love and feel passionately about... it will work in your room as long as there is a connection with the piece.
