Airplanes and Antique Toys


Not big on themes but I love airplanes and all things old.  When I found out I was having a boy I immediately knew I didn't want to do blue (after having a father in the air force... I don't like blue but am fond of planes!)

Design Inspiration

The big red chair (it is a sleeper) and the red radio flyer wagon to use for toy storage.

Decorating Style

Can't say that I have one.  But I know what I like when I see it.

Project Details

When I found something I liked I bought it.  I then painted it later.  The doors and drawers on the changing table had a purple stripe pattern.  The red shelf was a goodwill find that was dark blue.  Thank goodness for primer and paint in one!!

Favorite Items

All the old toys and the changer.


Do what makes you happy. :-)

That red and white changing table looks awesome! You did a good job repainting it.

That is just lovely. I love your inspiration and your color scheme. 'Old finds' are great in that no matter what color they are you can make them look the way you want. I love when parents move from the typical 'blue' for a boy and 'pink' for a girl. YOU GO GIRL!!
