Ruby Jean's Vintage Cheer

My Room

Name: Ruby Jean (2)
Location: Broomfield, Colorado

I created Ruby's room a little over two years ago by re-purposing items I had collected over the years and combining them with a few garage sale finds. My vision was to create an eclectic and cheerful space using white as a base on most major pieces in the room (walls, flooring, crib) but to accent with bright pops of color throughout using vintage pieces.

The starting point for the color began with some vintage tablecloths I had collected over the years; they were used to make letters for her name, cover the changing pad, and even became the crib skirt. Our first purchase for the room was an old Craigslist dresser that I painted and distressed to become the changing table. From there I made the bird mobile, painted some trees on the wall, and purchased the rug (from Urban Outfitters) that really pulled the whole room together.

A majority of the pieces are garage sale finds: the piano, chandelier, hanging bookshelf, and various artwork. This room has been so fun to create and will surely continue to evolve as Ruby grows!

Lovely - thanks Angie! Readers, think Angie has great style? She does - check out her son Gabe's room, too.
