A vision has finally formed in my brain and the design elements for the nursery are taking shape. Crib: check. Dresser slash changing table: check. Dresser #2: check. Glider chair: check. Mobile and decorative elements: check.
Curious to see the color scheme and some of the items I've purchased? Voila!!!
My jumping off point started with the laundry hamper. It's a little hard to tell from the image, but the color scheme will be made up of: light peach, grey, gold, silver, wood tones, and some hints of teal or turquoise.
Notice the dresser above? Another afforable find on Kijiji. I dished out $140 for this bad boy. I'm told that it's cherry wood and was made in the late 50s. I'm so enamored with the diamond shaped wood grain - such an eye catching piece!
Speaking of dressers, now that I found this showstopping beauty, I have changed my mind about the first dresser I purchased. I was initially only planning on doing some minor cosmetic improvements, but now having 2 wood furniture pieces with somewhat clashing tones - I decided to paint the changing table. Keep an eye out for the next post, as I'll be soliciting your votes on the color scheme.
Plus, I'll be doing a few more DIY projects for the room in upcoming posts: revamping a light fixture, making curtains with pompom trim, sewing an ombre ruffled crib skirt from scratch (scared) and maybe creating some of my own amateur artwork (poor baby).
