Nursery Progress

Remember when I posted this inspiration board?
Well I was in San Francisco to throw my friends
baby shower, and we worked on the nursery while
I was there. I was only there for 4 days and 2 of
those days we were focussed on the shower, but
we did find time to do some nursery shopping,
paint furniture, and organize the nursery.

We painted this vintage dresser she got
for $40 (which I covet) pink,
a $10 mirror from Ross we painted yellow
We also lined the drawers, which is a must
with second hand dressers, with this cute
shabby chic shelf liner from Michael's ($3/roll)
The doll was a shower gift, and the lamp
we picked up at Ikea ($20)
I also hand painted her this monogrammed
wall sign for over the crib.
And we made cork-backed shadow boxes for
her collection of vintage Barbie dresses, she has
6 of them, and they are just precious!
Needless to say we were very busy,
but we had lots of fun doing it.

Check back soon for pictures from the shower!
