Favorite Items

The dresser, but also the stencil because I put so much time into it!


Outsource when you can and support artists!  Try to pick items that might grow into their childhood rooms or be sentimental to them later on.

    There is no wallpaper. It’s a stencil and took forever! The stencil and paint color is linked.

    Is that the small or large pouf from RH Kids?

  6. […] There’s just something about a gray knit pouf that makes it a must-have nursery essential. We’d add in the Vintage Nursery personalized growth chart in Aqua to bring out more of the soothing aqua and pink accents in this room. (Project Nursery) […]
