A Project For
Once I found out that we were having a little boy I knew that I wanted to combine the whimsy of vintage Disney with the modern look of chevron and stripes. My color palate was from Sherwin Williams. The blue is Respite and the gray used on the stripe wall is Pussywillow
Vintage Disney sports movie posters from the 1940's and the movie Dumbo. I wanted to keep the room feeling light and airy by using a white furniture and finding a blue that reminded me of a clear sky
Vintage with a mix of modern
I found the vintage movie posters on ebay.com from the seller zdposter http://www.ebay.com/itm/Working-for-peanuts-Donald-Duck-Disney-cartoon-poster-print-A46-/321035307449?pt=Art_Posters&hash=item4abf3209b9 The chevron rug came from overstock.com http://www.overstock.com/Home-Garden/Chevron-Dhurrie-Blue-Ivory-Wool-Rug-6-Square/7026018/product.html?CID=214117 The flying dumbo in the corner of the room is from ebay as well. I have yet to see another one like it. The Dumbo lamp was made by the Disneystore and purchased on ebay as it is no longer available and made years ago. To add additional elephant accents I choose Pottery Barn's Taylor Nursery Bedding http://www.potterybarnkids.com/products/gray-elephant-nursery-bedding/ The panel drapes are from TJ Maxx The dresser, changing table and crib are all from Babies R Us Status Montrose Dresser http://www.toysrus.com/product/index.jsp?productId=3997300&searchURL=false Delta Sedona Classic Crib http://www.toysrus.com/product/index.jsp?productId=10962008&gcsct=0ChMIsJTvrJWEtAIVkJHmCh0XKgAAEAE Delta Sedona Changing Table http://www.toysrus.com/product/index.jsp?productId=10962007&prodFindSrc=prodCrossSell Donald Duck and Mickey Mouse Ceiling Fan Pulls from amazon.com http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0049W7TZ4/ref=oh_details_o01_s00_i00 http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005FHXHOE/ref=oh_details_o03_s00_
The Casey Junior train wall hanging was made by the Dolly Toy company and is vintage purchased on eBay
Dumbo picture frame was purchased on eBay and was originally sold at Walt Disney World
It is hard to narrow it down but I would have to say the flying Dumbo hanging from the ceiling.
Ebay is a great way to find unique pieces that you never knew existed. I liked to use the ebay app on my phone so that I could search regularly and to make sure I never lost out on a bid!
