Yuki’s Nursery: Fun Finds!

Day 4 of Yuki’s Nursery Tour (click the button above to see the rest)!  You’re probably sick of this little room.  How much could there possibly be to see!?  Well, a bit more, so thanks for indulging me :)

Although I spent a lot of time on DIY projects, I can’t take credit for everything.  Some awesome things I just found!  Today I’ll show you some of the fun finds in Yuki’s room.

ABC cards.  I found these Alphabet Cards at Michael’s during one trip and THEY WERE PERFECT!  They have the cutest little illustrations on them.  They are beautifully cut and distressed.  I didn’t have to do anything!  I just pinned up two rows of ribbon and found some mini clothes pins to hang them up!

Next is this little gnome friend.  I don’t remember exactly where I picked this up, but I think it was from an antique shop we stopped at on our road trip up the Pacific Northwest coast.  And those pinwheels came from a little boutique in Calistoga.  Once I decided on a theme, I just tried to keep my eyes open for little things all over that might add some character.

Since I love birds and owls, there are a lot of birdy things in the room.  I got 3 of these unfinished bird houses at Joann’s and painted them in yellows, oranges, grays, blues and browns (there’s one hanging as a mobile and the 3rd one is on Yuki’s bookshelf).  The nest was also from Joann’s and those two little owls were from a temple gift shop in Japan!

The best of all our finds though, is this dresser.

We walked into a Salvation Army one day and found this awesome dresser right at the front of the store on sale for $50!  It’s a bit beat up and missing a knob and a handle, but it just adds character right?  I was planning on replacing them, but never got around to it and it really hasn’t mattered – we can still get in all the drawers just fine.  I love the color and the size was perfect for all her clothes.  I use it as a backdrop for clothing photos all the time (you may have seen it here or here).  I have a feeling this dresser will be with us for a long time.

Well that’s it for today!  I miss going out and looking for fun finds to add to the room.  All this nursery talk is getting me thinking about ideas for a new room!  And I’d love to see all of your nurseries!  Anyone have links to posts of their nursery?
