Picking a theme for your new bundle of joy can be difficult. Everything in the stores is either has too many animals, too girly (we don’t know what Porter is yet), or just obnoxious.
Once I had a sneak peek of Bella from Lotta Jansdotter I knew my nursery had to be in that. BTW…I wasn’t even pregnant yet, but knew that was it. The colors and prints could be for either a boy or girl.
Plus I have a bit of fabric left over from the Lovebird’s quilts that could be a nice accent. I don’t want a nursery that screams BIRDS, but a small touch is okay.
While out at the Indie Vintage & Arts Marketplace in September my friends and I saw this great gray dresser. They had repurposed one of the dressers to have small white stripes, with a bit of yellow and wonderful blue knobs. I tried to explain to hubby, but I’m sure he imagined this.
He’s envisioning zebra stripes and it’s really just a couple of stripes from the top to the bottom on the left hand side. Of course I didn’t take a picture that day.
We know someone moving half way around the world and needing to get rid of stuff. Score for us, because one of their dressers is perfect to make our own attempt at repurposing again.
