Vintage Circus Baby Nursery
Vintage Circus Baby Nursery
I wanted to create a turn of the century vintage circus baby nursery. I came up with the idea on my own. I wanted to have the luxury, gold, and magic of an old world circus.
The lamp shade was hand made with circus fabric from etsy.
We bought the lion rug from ebay, and purchased 6 vintage circus posters and framed them in ornate gold frames.
The baby's name poster was hand drawn and designed and sent to a printer to computerize it and print it.
How did you store all your baby goodies? In baskets, on shelves?
In drawers, and in red canvas baskets and a lion basket, on a hand refinished shelf .
How long did it take you? Was it easy, fun, difficult? What was your favorite part?
It took me 8 months. It was difficult and very fun to hand make everything. I loved knowing I was putting so much love into each piece with every stitch. I am so proud of having made each and every part of the room by hand and from scratch.
Did you do the entire nursery on your own or did someone help you? Who? What did they do?
I did everything except, my husband's aunt hand made the baby's quilt.
What do you love most about your little one's finished room?
Everything, but my favorite thing is that no matter how fussy my baby might be, he loves his room so much that if I simply put him in his room he just smiles.
