Marlo's Speedy Nursery

Marlo's Speedy Nursery

Many of you may remember the fabulous handy work of AB Chao when she surprised her daughter, Madeleine, with a gorgeous room makeover. AB's designerly eye has now made its way to the nursery of a very lucky recipient: her friend's daughter, Marlo.

Time was of the essence in creating this nursery, as AB writes on her blog, " A few weeks ago my friends Allison and Chris adopted a baby, and I immediately sprung into action to help Al plan a nursery...We didn't have a lot of time to plan, so most of the items in the room were sourced locally or ordered somewhere online that offered quick shipping. I arrived in Atlanta on Saturday afternoon and had to leave Tuesday morning, so we had a tight schedule to get the room and crib painted, hang shades/curtains, and assemble everything."

Among some of the items the room features are a Jenny Lind crib (spray painted with Valspar's Bumblebee), bedding and lighting from Target, a dresser from Babies R' Us, curtains rugs and shelving from IKEA. We've spent over a year trying to finish our son's bedroom, and are completely impressed by AB's great work in three days.
