but (aside from the crib) every other piece of furniture in this room was already there. At the prospect of living will all men, I girlied up the guest bedroom ASAP. Additionally, all of these pieces were purchased secondhand.
I'll let the pictures do most of the talking but I'll fill in a few of the details as we go.
I purchased this Jenny Lind Cribnew and (after a lot of fabric searching) I used hand-me-downs for the bedding. The chevron blanket was a (thoroughly washed) $5 thrift store find.
I purchased this chair for $25 and painted it with homemade chalk paint. Then I had the chair professionally reupholstered.
I purchased this vanity for $50 on craigslist and I painted it with homemade chalk paint too.
Emmaline's large wooden letter E is a one of a kind splurge from my trip to First Monday Traded Days in Canton. You can see more cool Canton stuff here.
I reconfigured my old Mosquito Net to go over Emmaline's bed. The bed was a $10 garage sale find. My grandma made the white teddy-bear for me when I was a little girl.
My old baby doll crib. My grandma made this too and we currently use it for books.
I use a $20 garage sale chair with a Tiffany plate (wedding gift) on top as a nightstand. Nanny gave Emmaline the vintage Louis Vuitton scarf.
Pink homemade chalk paint vanity mirror. I fell in-love with this mirror when it was $90. Then I grabbed it right up when it went on clearance for $20.
I bought the green lamp (on the left) for $15 at a thrift store. I painted it and then added $1 pearl necklaces I bought at an antique co-op.
I purchased this Angels danced the day you were born quote wall saying vinyl decal when the room was used for guests.
My grandma gave me a vintage hat on a family trip twenty years ago. I've been drawn to old hats ever since. You can pick them up inexpensively at antique stores all over the place. I've clipped vintage hats to the top of Emmaline's curtains.
An antique cradle (purchased for $5) is the perfect place to store pretty pillows.
I frequently link to these great parties...
