Joyce definitely overcame any obstacles she had putting together her daughter's room. And we think she's kicking off a new trend with these pretty bare frames: We had two obstacles when we began creating a space for our sweet Baby Amelia: our small apartment, and the overwhelming amount of pink baby decor that we encountered as we shopped for items for her nursery. We wanted to create a room that would feel old fashioned, whimsical, and fun, while still meshing with the rest of our home.
We decided to stick to what we knew and go for thrift and consignment store finds and Home-Made-With-Love projects. Our prized green "Reading Chair" came first from Craigslist and then our changing table credenza from our favorite vintage consignment shop downtown. Once we had those two, it seemed everything else fell into place. I made both mobiles and a handful of her stuffed animals as well as up-cycled and repainted a few unused frames that we had. The room has a warm,cheery feel and we just know that many happy memories will be had here.
