a few months ago, i did some furniture painting for a client with a baby on the way. last week, she contacted me to do 4 smallish canvases for one wall. here is everything! i love how the nursery turned out - great work, rianna!
i painted the little side table, and rianna added new hardware. it has a new life! don't you love the quilt (it's from "the land of nod")? i also love the cute orange lamp in this photo!
here is the "before" shot of the nightstand :
here is the whole room. rianna's mom made those great yellow-and-white striped curtains with fabric from ikea. my kind of project! i love them. they really add so much whimsy to the room!
here is the wardrobe before i painted it - it had a pretty drastic makeover. it used to be warm, knotty wood, and i brought in smooth, creamy white paint and gave it a light distressing (similar to the distressed pottery barn furniture). this also shows the room color "before", and the many choices of blue on the wall!
dont you love the owl that sits on top? he is from "fruitfly pie", which is one of my favorite etsy shops! i also adore the kelly green birdcage.
here is that entire side of the room, and to the right, you can see the 4 square custom canvases i did for the nursery.
i pulled in patterns from the sheets and bumper that go with the bedding set.
i like how rianna hung baby clothes above the bed!
here are the paintings up close! i am also going to include a shot that i took at home, that shows the chocolate brown and white stripes on the sides of the canvas:
here is the other side of the room:
the "love" print is from madebygirl - a great blog (and she has an etsy shop with wonderful prints).
so, that concludes our tour! isn't it a sweet nursery?
