Blair's Sweet Recycled & Repurposed Nursery

Name: Blair Elizabeth
Location: Glenview, Illinois

This room, which we renovated from an old music studio, is really tiny. It had no closet so we built the shelving and clothing rack and hung up some yellow gingham curtains for closet doors. I'm actually pretty proud of all the re-purposing and recycling I managed in here.

The crib and changing table were passed down from big brother, rocking chair was my MIL's, the end table and wooden heart wall shelf my FIL left here for us. And mostly everything in here minus the crib and changing table she will take with her to a 'big girl' room someday.
