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?
