Hi all! Somehow another month has flown by and we are a week into May already. Wow. We have been busy with furniture projects and boats the past month. Being an admin for the boat business has been a bit of a learning curve and has taken up much more time than I anticipated. I have managed to get out a few projects which I will share soon but not near as much I am used to. So since I don’t have much work to share, I am going to share my friend’s work. 🙂
My friend Heather is having a baby girl! A few weeks ago, we showered her and baby Brooke with gifts at the house. It was a simple and classy party with a flower theme based on the colors of the baby bedding. We used fresh flowers, painted mason jars, and lots of vintage glassware. It was a great, relaxed time spent with family and friends celebrating Heather and baby.
Here are a few pictures.
I have done a few furniture pieces for Heather in the past, see her vanity here, and I shared her pretty guest room, read about it here. That guest room is now a nursery! She is such a talented designer and I absolutely love her style but she has out done herself with this nursery. Hands down my favorite. Ever. I want it to be my room. 🙂 The only part I did in this room is the small end table. Heather and I cleaned it up, sanded it, then I painted it a gorgeous, peachy color named Tropical Breeze.
A before picture of the table. Which we took after we started working on it. Oops.
Now for the room.
Heather’s vision for a vintage baby girl nursery came together beautifully and it seriously is breath taking.
LOVE. LOVE. LOVE. A few of my favorite things. 1. The dresser in its original condition. Everyone is updating and redoing. That’s my business so obviously I am into that, but leaving it original with the flower details and faded yellow was a perfect choice. 2. The ship. I mean seriously. It is such a neat piece. Heather’s husband is a merchant marine so ships, ocean and nautical is a huge part of their life. Plus they live on the water. That ship is a great way to bring in a nautical piece but keep with the soft vintage feel in the room. 3. The large canvas. That is a picture of Heather, pregnant with Brooke, and Kylie walking on the beach in Galveston with their dogs. What an amazing memory to have on the wall as art.
The bedding, the capiz shell ceiling light, the framed flamingo head, the mermaid art framed on the end table, the lamb mobile and many more details help make this room. We find ourselves gravitating towards it when we are at her house. 🙂 Heather, our other friend, Rachel, and I will disappear and our husbands will find us sitting in the nursery hanging out and talking.
I can’t wait to meet baby Brooke, spoil her rotten, and play dress up with her amazing closet full of clothes. She is already the most stylish baby I know with a designer nursery and a closet any girl would be jealous of. 🙂
