Favorite Items

The refinished campaign dresser. We purchased this piece for $40 and it was in really bad shape. We almost decided not to refinish it but when we did we saved a ton of money and now our daughter has a unique furniture piece in her room.


Try to find elements in the room that you can turn into a DIY project. I couldn't find just the right bedding set for Harper's crib so I used a fitted sheet from Target and combined it with a DIY crib skirt.

Such a charming nursery. Love those two prints above the glider, and I think that chair by the window is cool.
