Handmade Nursery, Part Two

By

Here’s another peek at our beloved nursery.  When you live in a rental, the details become all the more important.  Since I can’t change the bones of the place, I need heartfelt details to make it feel like a home. 

Here’s where we sit and rock.  My mom sewed the pillow of the same green and white polka dot fabric as the headboard.  The tablecloth is the same fabric as the curtains.  I’m not into matchy-matchy where fabric is concerned, but my mom convinced me to pull these fabrics in again to make the room more cohesive.

I picked up the vintage Raggedy Ann plate at a thrift shop for 50 cents.

I was inspired by Ashley Ann to make the tissue poms, but made the idea my own with the addition of Japanese rice paper lanterns and the bright color scheme.

The prints are digital illustrations by Erin Zamrzla, which I snagged at the 2010 Renegade Craft Fair here in SF.

The ottoman was needlepointed by my grandmother.

All these handmade details make the nursery our favorite room in the house. Hope you enjoyed the peek.
