Kate's Room, Finally!

This angel mobile was given to my mom by my grandmother at my mom's baby shower in 1974. It's made by Irmi and you can find some similar ones on ebay. This one spins and plays "This Old Man".

The lighting is really bad in this shot, I'll try to get a better one.

The paint is "light touch" by Benjamin Moore.

I made the drapes when my mom was in town and she did all the hems (the hardest part...thanks, mom!). This girl made the bedding. All the fabric is by the very talented Heather Bailey. The drapes, outside bumper, and skirt fabric is "Pineapple Brocade" in ice and pinkypurple , the bumper ties are "Swirly Buds", and the inside bumper is "Peonies".

The butterflies are from Pottery Barn Kids.

The side table is from PB Teen and the vintage chenille dog was a gift from John's mom. She found it here. There's a better picture of it in my previous post if you're interested.

The drum pendant is the "Eden" from CB2. I covered it in "Zag Stripe", also by Heather Bailey. I still think it needs something when I figure out what it needs, I'll add it!

John and I made the glittery "K" on the door with a paper mache letter I found at the craft store.

This letterpress print is one of the best parts of the room. San Francisco is one of our favorite places to visit and was one of the stops on our amazing honeymoon. It was made by the very nice people at Lab Partners.

Jane always wants to "GO WOOK" at Kate in her crib.

And who wouldn't want to? What a sweet angel.

Thanks so much to all the friends and family who gave us gifts of money or gift cards when Kate was born. All of that went to the things you see in her room. We love you all!

I was searching online for Heather Bailey's zag stripe fabric for my nursery and came across your blog post - LOVE what you did in your daughter's room! I may steal your idea to cover a lampshade in the zag stripe fabric...any tips? (I'm using the turquoise color way - too cute!) Thanks in advance - gorgeous nursery!

The width of the fabric wasn't enough to go completely around the shade, so I had to sew it together lining up the stripes before I was ready to attach it. I used spray adhesive and worked a little at a time to keep it smooth. I left about an inch at the top and bottom...enough to wrap it around the metal frame and completely cover it, then glued it down with fabric glue (Fabri-Tac). I thought about finishing it with some pom pom ball fringe or bias tape along the bottom, but still haven't gotten around to that. Good luck and thanks for you sweet comments!!!
