When my friend Rachel starting posting photos of her baby girl’s nursery some odd months ago, I knew it was going to be awesome. Rachel is my crafty friend. She’s a girl after my own heart and she’s never been afraid of a DIY project. She has a banner business (which you can find here) and a super handy husband who crafts up what she imagines.
I first met Rachel folding panties at Victoria’s Secret. This was at least four or five years ago. Since then, we’ve kept in contact. Her little boy is so spunky and adorable. He kept asking me that entire morning if I would come take pictures of his room. However, his floor was covered in Batman and Legos, so I told him I’d come back real soon.
Little Wren has already had an eventful life. Right after she was born, she had trouble breathing on her own. But the little fighter stayed strong and after six weeks, she came home. I was so excited to finally meet her and snap some photos of her room.
By far the most exciting part of her room is the feature wall. Rachel and her husband, Stephan, created this gorgeous feature wall out of painter’s tape and just good eye. She said it took “hours” deciding if the triangles were perfect.
The crib was passed down from her niece, the glider belong to a friend, and the glider cushions were reupholstered by a friend/neighbor. The dresses hanging on the wall were Rachel’s when she was a baby and the picture of the wren (bottom of the wicker shelf) was painted in water color by Rachel’s cousin. Most of the pieces in Wren’s room were passed down.
Wren, herself, decided to pop in and pose for the camera. Little lady has the most gorgeous brown hair and skin complexion. Of course her mother coordinated her outfit to match her room.
I wanted her nursery to consist of mostly hand me downs, DIYs and items made from local and small businesses. So many people prayed for her before she was ever born and I wanted them to all be part of her room in some way. I wasn’t sure how the mix of vintage and modern would turn out, but I am super happy with the finished product. – Rachel
