UncategorizedVintage Nursery Finds August 23, 2014One of the best parts about The World’s Longest Yard Sale this year was knowing that we were having a girl! I went with my inspiration board in mind and hoped to find some fun vintage items for Baby Girl’s nursery. Right before we left, I came across a vintage floral painting at a thrift store and it completely inspired my color scheme. It’s a bit hard to see in the picture, but I really wanted to rely on blues and greens with just a pop of girly thrown in. The flowers have a lot of peach in them in this painting and I loved the idea of using peach. I’m not a majorly pink person, so I love that the peach gives a girly touch without being overly pink. I’ll be using this painting in the room and will bring in a dusty navy, some mint, and other deeper shades of green. You never know what you’ll find on The Yard Sale, but I was really pleased with the nursery items I came home with. First of all…that rug. This rug is 3×5 and was $15!!! I almost fainted when I saw it because it could not be more perfect. It has peach, mint, and navy and will look great layered over the cowhide I’m planning. Plus, did I mention it was $15?! I fell in love with the carved wooden and gold side table as soon as I saw it. It’ll sit next to the glider (that we’ve got to find) and will be a pretty little drop-zone for things as Baby Girl is being rocked and fed. I love the carved gold top. And that wooden base is the best. When I came across this little vintage clock, I knew it needed to be in here. I love the large mint numbers. Do babies need clocks? Probably not, but one day she will! And it’s perfect 🙂 I fell in love with this cute little navajo pot. I love how it matches the color scheme, but brings in a totally different, more rustic feel than the vintage floral. One of the best parts of The Yard Sale are the vintage linens. There are vendors who come with hundreds of vintage tablecloths, bedspreads, and quilts. This tone-on-tone embroidered peach quilt is vintage and from Italy. And it was $18. That’s why I love this sale so much. A twin-size vintage embroidered Italian quilt for $18. It’ll probably be folded on the back of the glider for now, but could transition into a great quilt for the bottom of her future twin bed. And now for a few wall art finds. I’m planning to paint the walls white and will definitely have a gallery wall or two, so some fun vintage art pieces are a must. I’ll be using the vintage floral somewhere special since it inspired the whole room, but will also bring in these finds. I love this colorful vintage landscape so much. It ties in the colors of the vintage floral, but like the pot, gives the room a not overly girly feel. This is a vintage lace doilie that has been dyed navy and starched so that it’s stiff. It’s actually a shallow basket, but I’m planning to hang it on the wall. I love how the pattern pops off of the white walls. And last, but not least, I knew that some antlers would make an appearance in here. I just didn’t know they’d be brass! I came across this brass mounted deer head and loved it! It brings in some rustic and antlers, but still has a bit of a girly element with the gold. So, there you have it friends. The nursery is starting to come along! I have a lot more to round up before we’re ready to put it together, but I love the eclectic soul these items will bring. One of you asked if I would be putting the nursery in the room with the kilim wall. That room is currently my office, but after seeing all of my finds against it and how well the color scheme fits, I’m considering it. What do y’all think? Crib in front of the kilim wall and move my office elsewhere? Or solid white walls layered with fun vintage finds? I’d love to hear your suggestions!
