Meri's enthusiasm for her daughter's lovely room is contagious. Here she is to show you around: Hello and welcome to Gigi's room. I have never loved a project as much as setting up my now 10-week-old's nursery. It was and continues to be a true labor of love. The crib and changing table were hand me downs. I just spruced up the changing table a bit with new knobs from Anthropologie. I knew I wanted a yellow and white room with art and small bits of pink to make it homey. The rug is my fav. It's the Dead End Rug from CB2. Not crazy about the name but the rug is really modern and fun for a babies room. I found the abacus at the Rose Bowl all beaten up. I cleaned it up and now I can't wait for Gigi to be able to play with it. The art above her crib is a Mckenzie Thorpe Litho called Field of Dreams. I'm sure everyone recognizes the Expedit. I love changing around all the cubbies and finding little things to put in it.
It's filled with little memories from my own room growing up and flea market and thrift finds. The tapestry in the corner I made on a homemade loom from left over fabric and ribbon from my own baby clothes that my grandma made me. The dress on the dresser was mine as a little one. My grandma made it for me. It was my favorite. I'm so excited to put Gigi in it and show her great grandma, Charlotte (89) and still a creative powerhouse!!!
Thanks Meri! Readers, visit Meri on her blog, Meri Cherry.
