Hi there, i'm Adrianne, wife to Jeremy and mama to Braylen. We write a DIY design blog called Dream Book Design, where we post all of our house remodel projects as well as our journey through pregnancy to parenthood.

Vintage Nautical Baby Shower

My incredible sister and friends threw me a fabulous baby shower. The theme was vintage nautical and they nailed it, down to every detail. Instead of the normal puff paint or fabric marker onesie decorating, we had vintage iron-ons that were pressed on to the outfits, bibs, hats, etc. Even the toys that were used as decoration were either vintage or nautical themed. They kept it simple, clean, bright, and not typical baby shower decor at all.

Braylens Vintage Nursery

As DIY bloggers we knew this nursery would mainly consist of just that, DIY projects. We changed this basic bedroom in to a beautiful nursery for our baby boy. By adding board and batten, transforming the regular closet to a storage bench with hanging space, and adding vintage details all over, we feel we created a fun and unique space for B to grow up in. The bench in the closet will be a great reading nook for him as he gets older, with metal racks holding all his favorite books. We love that we were able to get 99% of the items in here from either Craigslist, eBay, or local auctions.
