Vintage Farmhouse Nursery

Happpppy Tuesday my friends! I hope your week is off to a happy start. I am so darn excited about today’s post. For the first time ever, I’m sharing my little girl’s vintage farmhouse nursery. This room has been a work in progress for the past year or so, but I think it’s finally complete and I’m soooooo smitten with it. So grab some coffee and come take a little tour!

Would you believe that I found this sign at Hobby Lobby on clearance for just $20?! Total score. And how cute is that old stick horse? It belonged to my Granny and I can still remember playing with it when I was a little girl.

This dresser reminds me of so many sweet memories. I bought this when I was pregnant with Allie, I actually found it on Craigslist for $40. I chalk painted it out in our garage, with a big ol’ belly and dreaming about what my little girl would be like. It has so much special meaning to me and I just love the details–especially the flower scrolling on the bottom.

The purple mirror here belonged to my other grandma–we all call her Jams. She had a pair of these mirrors in her home for as long as I can remember and I was lucky enough to get them a few years ago. I painted this one purple for Allie’s room. I love having it in this little gallery wall.

This yellow throw from Lands Downunder is the softest, most luxurious blanket ever. Really, if there was some kind of award for the best blanket in the whole world, this baby would definitely be the winner. It’s made in Italy, which is the first clue that it’s awesome. Plus it’s lightweight and Allie absolutely loves wrapping up in this when we read books before bed. This is their Butter Herringbone Throw.

Ok, about this picket fence. I’m kind of in love with the character this adds to her room. We actually picked up an 8 foot section of fence from Home Depot and just cut it down to fit this space. I’m planning to share more about it soon, so stay tuned! And by the way, we made sure to screw this into the studs in the wall so it’s definitely nice and secure.

I made this fabric and lace garland. It was super easy to do and was actually one of the first things I made for Allie’s room. Let me know if you guys want to see a tutorial, I’d be happy to show you how I did it!

I’m so happy to have this sweet little nursery finally spruced up for my Allie girl. It’s not a big space, but it doesn’t take much to bring a room to life with a few vintage pieces and a little creativity. And so many of the goodies in here have sentimental meaning to me, which makes me love it even more. Allie is actually about ready to transition into a big girl bed and honestly, I’m kind of sad about it. Any other mama’s feel that way about their babies moving out of the crib? It’s such a big change and my heart isn’t ready yet. Just a bit longer, that’s what I always say!

Well that is all for me today. Let me know what you think of our nursery in the comments below and thanks so much for stopping by!

    So sweet – I just love the idea of using a picket fence as wall decor. Now I’m looking around my house for a place to hang one.

      Thanks Marilyn, I’m doing the same thing with the leftover fence we have from this project. I’m sure it will find a place soon!

    What kind of stain did you use on the top of the yellow dresser? And then what did you use to seal it! The whole room is darling!!

      I used 2 coats of Java Gel stain, then you can cover it in a clear polycrylic. Thanks for stopping by!

    Very sweet room for a precious wee one! Love the decor and the soft colors. I would love a tutorial on the banner/bunting across the fencing you made. I have a pre-teen daughter that would love one for her room over her bed in blues and whites!

    Love it!! Are those curtains drop cloths? If so, did u bleach them? Did you use a whole cloth or cut them down the middle for two panels?

      Yes they are drop cloth curtains Kristen–I get mine from Home Depot! I didn’t bleach them, just washed and ironed. And I used two drop cloths for each window.

    I love this nursery, Sarah. I follow you on Instagram and had to pop over. It looks so girlie for the little one. The fence, cozy blanket, mirror from your grandma and all looks so beautiful. I too have been working on my girls room (shared bedroom) for what seems like forever. Taking inspiration from you.

    This is precious and full of ideas. We became grandparents 5.5 months ago and are making a nursery in the loft. The theme is Americana Nautical.
