Vintage Birdie Nursery Idea

Vintage Birdie Nursery Idea

Vintage Birdie Nursery Idea

Our vintage birdie nursery idea is finally a reality! April (Geesbreght) Cushman came over in October and gave me the vision for the room. I then spent the next several months gathering the items to make it work.

We painted the room in "Tranquil Pond" by Freshaire. Once the crib, dresser and loveseat were in the room, I just couldn't figure out how to arrange the room. So, I called on my friend Megan Branagh, who works at Simple Things here in Fort Worth (the store that inspired the look of the room) to help me with space planning.
She gave me a great plan for arranging the furniture and some other great ideas for where to put some of the decorative stuff. I really like how everything came together.

I often come and sit in the room, just thinking about when Jovienne gets here! Thanks to April and Megan for helping me to make this room so beautiful.

Because I love to know where everything came from, I am including a list of resources below:

  • Julia Laing, of Laing Designs, did the slipcover for the Pottery Barn Kids loveseat glider that we purchased.

  • The dresser is from GoLightlys Antiques in North Richland Hills.

  • The crib is from Lone Star Baby.

  • The curtains are from Ross, and I just made the tie's to hold them up.

  • The mantle above her crib is from Old Home Supply here in Fort Worth.

  • If you don't want to make your own bird mobile, you can find a similar one here.

Thanks for sharing your gorgeous nursery Kat. It's lovely.

I love the bird mobile. It must have taken ages to make. It's the perfect finishing touch to the room.
