this baby room is in the beginning stages of getting all prepped for the bambino, and i think it's coming along nicely. the room was just painted this pale minty green, and the bedding is pottery barn's "abc" collection. the mom contacted me because she had two pieces of furniture for the baby's room that needed a little love. after thinking about doing some stripes, we decided to just paint the furniture a simple pale yellow, with a little distressing. i like distressing because i feel like it adds character to old furniture, and keeps it from looking like you are just trying to "cover up" something.
here is the furniture before:
i love the wavy lines of this dresser, and the hardware is the coolest! cassidy (my client, and the baby's mom) pointed out that the bottom pulls look like birds, and i think the top ones look like mustaches!
i refinished the hardware with a simple brown finish to match it to the rest of the room and to match it to the other furniture.
and here is the dresser after a little TLC:
details of the distressing...
here is the little nightstand. it's such a cute piece, and i love the pulls and the little authentic vintage knob.
and, last but not least, i painted a vintage window frame to be hung above the baby's crib (similar to this one i did a while back, and this one, too). i tried to sort of match it to the bedding...here it is before i painted it. we are keeping my friend's cat for a few months while she is living in california, so now all my pieces have 2 cats attacking them everytime i bring them in.
i love how they act like it is so interesting:
after sniff-inspecting it, mika decided it looked like a comfortable bed:
here are a few of the pieces all together. can't wait to see this room when it's all said and done!
