Vintage Alphabet Nursery Idea

Vintage Alphabet Nursery Idea

I got most of my inspiration for my vintage alphabet nursery idea from looking at blogs and websites for inspiration. I found the animal alphabet at 'Hip and Humble' and then decided it would be cute to hang them as if they were on a clothesline. I had seen other blogs where they hung art in a similar way. It turned out to be a very inexpensive way to decorate an entire wall.

The wall above the crib was inspired by my sister who came across some 'old school' school work images on flickr. I also found some of my own school work from preschool, kindergarten, etc. I bought a bunch of Ikea frames and arranged them on the floor until I figured out how I wanted them to go up on the wall. This was also an inexpensive wall to decorate since Ikea frames are so cheap and getting the pictures printed was cheap too.

I found the bedding and the fabric to recover the rocking chair at a fabric store in New York called Purl Soho. I just saw both the fabrics and fell in love with them. My mom is a talented seamstress and she recovered the chair, made the bumper pads, skirt, window valence, and quilt. I was thrilled with the results.

The crib is from Target, I found the dresser in the classifieds, the rocking chair at a tag sale and the foot stool from Elemente.

The nursery really came together the last 2-3 weeks before my due date (yes, I procrastinated). I gathered ideas and bought different items throughout my whole pregnancy, but I really didn't get things going until the end.

It was really fun and easy to put his room together. I think the most time-intensive part is just finding things that inspire you and figuring out how to incorporate them into a room. I really wanted his room to be a place that I enjoyed spending time in and I wanted it to stimulate him as well.
