Spray Paint a Brass Chandelier

Spray Paint a Brass Chandelier

It’s been quite a while since I last blogged!  And that’s because… it’s been quite a while since we last did anything to our house! Well, that’s not exactly true.  As I’ll share in the coming weeks, we’ve done a few things here and there but I just haven’t made time to post them all....
What A Nursery Looks Like After 6 Months

What A Nursery Looks Like After 6 Months

Sorry for the lack of blog posts of late; I started work again and Evie’s been sick for almost 6 weeks now.  So needless to say, we’ve been pretty sleep deprived and updating the blog hasn’t been the highest priority (sorry!). I thought it might be interesting to give y’all a glimpse of what life...
Completed Turquoise And Beige Nursery

Completed Turquoise And Beige Nursery

  Happy Saturday night, y’all!  (In case you were wondering, why, yes– I am sitting at home on a Saturday night and David and I are about to have a Scrubs marathon while Evie sleeps and we eat frozen dinner and drink some local red wine.  This is actually heaven to me these days.)  I...
Family Dresser

Family Dresser

  Most of the furniture in Evie’s nursery is new (well, new to our family… aka from Craigslist!) but there’s one piece that has a lot of meaning to me and I hope it will mean something to Evie one day.This dresser belonged to my mom.  She bought it at an auction in Richmond when...
Tie-Backs in the Nursery

Tie-Backs in the Nursery

  The last piece of the nursery puzzle is complete: the white eyelet curtain tie-backs! I ordered beige bows (to match the carpet and trim on the window shades) from Etsy for $16 each.  I decided to keep the closet doors on behind the curtains– a friend gave me a tip that once Evie is a...
A Monogram for the Baby!

A Monogram for the Baby!

We just about have Evie’s precious nursery done! A few weeks after she was born we ordered a 24 inch wood wall monogram from this Etsy shop for $65.  I’m a sucker for monograms, let me tell you.  I guess it’s a Southern thing but I’ve always loved mine.  (Side note: as you’ll see below, our last...
Linens in the Nursery

Linens in the Nursery

  Almost done with feminizing the nursery!  We decided to keep with the beige/ivory/white/turquoise color scheme and use white eyelet as the jumping off point. I ordered three pairs of white eyelet curtains from Overstock, plus a white eyelet bedskirt and pillow shams (also from Overstock), and got lucky with a white eyelet crib skirt...
Shelves in the Nursery

Shelves in the Nursery

Before little Evie came, we decided we were going to add shelves to the nursery using the brackets that used to be in the doorways downstairs. David cut and sanded four pieces of wood:   And I painted the (previously sanded by David) brackets the same turquoise blue color by CeCe Caldwell that we used for...
Curtain Rod in the Nursery

Curtain Rod in the Nursery

  I came up with a potentially crazy idea for the nursery: curtaining off the entire wall with two closets and changing table nook. After a bit of online searching, I found the following images that I thought were cute and could be tailored well for our baby’s nursery…         Our set-up...
Making A Step for the Nursery Door

Making A Step for the Nursery Door

  Remember when we cut a hole in the wall for a door going from the nursery to the current laundry room?(Eventually, this will lead to an en suite bathroom, but for the time being, we just wanted the door cut and dust over with before baby comes.)   We picked up an antique door...
Carpet in the Nursery

Carpet in the Nursery

So when our floors got damaged by contractors in the guest room and hallway, I was pretty inconsolably upset.  I was really angry.  I know I had the pregnancy hormone thing going on, but I just felt like we had let the house down by allowing one of its few original features to be scratched.  Yes,...
Painting a Crib With CeCe Caldwell's Clay Paint

Painting a Crib With CeCe Caldwell’s Clay Paint

  Today I’ll share some more progress with getting the nursery ready and in particular with our crib!  After some wonderful Craigslist finds for our changing table ($20!) and a bookshelf ($50– solid wood!), my mom and I got to work on painting all three pieces for the nursery in CeCe Caldwell’s Sante Fe Turquoise....
