Our last house was decorated very shabby chic. The house lent itself to that style being a queen anne style home but in our current home we have a more simplified Pottery Barn/Restoration Hardware look for the most part but there is still a place in my heart for all things shabby. I love furniture that looks like it's been lived in and worn. The little girl's bedroom set I bought that day is something straight from my heart....beautifully shabby.
Here is what it looked like before I refinished it...this is someone elsees set from the internet but you get the idea. Great shape, great bones.
I searched the internet for the perfect bedding set to go with the drexel bedroom set I found. I have searched for weeks. I finally found it here. It's girly and soft. It's fresh. The inside of the bumper is chenille. I zoomed in on one picture so the chenille can be seen (bottom picture). What's great is that it's custom, so we could mix up the fabrics and choose a different bumper fabric or sheet fabric...but honestly I love it just how it's shown. I adore it. If we find out we're having a girl, it will be the first purchase I make.
It's perfect. And if we can get the the crib and changing table for about $100 dollars which I hope to...this set isn't out of our budget.
Here's the crib I want...there are many on craigslist just waiting to be gobbled up. I saw this crib and changing table for $50 together yesterday. Some of them were recently recalled which they sell repair kits for. Older models are okay though. The style goes perfect with the girls bedroom set we have.
I also have the perfect chandelier which we salvaged from our home remodel. It was in the foyer. It's shabby, presently gold in color and I think I would paint it white and distress it also. It's been sitting in the nursery closet for almost a year waiting for a new home. I'm thinking the walls of the nursery would be a muted taupe. I can visualize the room, it would be perfect and airy. The only other thing we would need is the upholstered rocking chair with ottoman and we'd be set!
