Names: Jessica and Katie (21-months-old) Location: Rigby, Idaho Being a fan of the Web site *Kerflop, we were delighted when Jessica, who writes *Kerflop, agreed to do a nursery tour. Just recently, Jessica completed this renovation of Katie's room from a crib nursery to a big-girl room. This bright and breezy room instantly puts a smile on your face; several DIY touches add to the comfortable feeling the room emits.
The decorative touches in the room are great as well. Katie's name is spelled on the wall with wooden letters from 3D Woodcraft which Jessica modge-podged with scrapbooking paper. A shadow box on the wall, above the rocking chair, contains Jessica's baby blanket (made by her great grandmother) and Katie's blessing day dress hangs on a hanger next to the window. Other items in the room include bedding from Target and curtains, a bookcase, bed, doll bed and lamp from Ikea. The refinished dresser (painted with Behr's Marina Isle paint) was found at Goodwill and was finished with handles and knobs from Target. The classic rocking chair is a Craigslist find Jessica refinished and the silver mobile is from West Elm. The PB Teen mirror, bird pillow and Ubiki prints were items featured here of which Jessica adds, "A lot of inspiration came from reading your website." Nice! A little bit of old, a little bit of new, and a ton of DIY prettiness makes Katie's room welcoming and sweet. Thanks for sharing, Jessica!
