Capri’s Truly Vintage Nursery

Description

living in a small farmhouse with a tiny room, (8x10) for the nursery, but small spaces can hold great detail and love.  design style does not have to be limited by space or money.  there are many treasures to be found at local sales and auctions, craigslist and thrift stores.  re-purposed and re-loved. 

Design Inspiration

my love for bright colors, calming spaces, sweet details, and truly vintage finds. 

Decorating Style

authentic vintage.

Project Details

there aren't many manufacturer's names or details with most of the things in this room.  most have been loved before they ever reached this room.  to me, that makes them all the more appealing, to give them a second life.  

Favorite Items

wire basket found at a flea market. 

Advice

search for some local thrift stores in your area, you'll never know what will come your way.  if you love it, buy it and it will find it's way into your space.

I have searched everywhere for a vintage crib like this one! Where did you find yours?

Hi Janelle! Cute room. We are having twins and I love the wall color since I think it can work for a boy or girl. Do you mind telling us name and color you used? Also, when you repurposed the chair, did you make it a rocker? I am looking for a vintage chair out there but the ones I like are not rockers. Seeing if you or anyone have instructions on how you made a chair a rocker. Thanks!

Mrs.Echon,

thank you for taking the time to peek into our little world....and to leave such a nice comment. there is so much beauty in the things/people that have gone before us. my mom always says that stuff made in the 50's never gets old.....and she's right. it just keeps giving and giving, such quality.
