Wee Folk Space: The Baby's Room

I thought I'd share a few photos of Maggie's room...I love how it turned out so cheery vintage for barely any money!

A little side table next to the chair we read in.  I have had that lamp for a few years, I think it came from Ebay and I had it rewired.  It has always been one of my favorites and I am glad to have it in her room now.
I bought the table from an antiques shop in Chicago, long before Maggie was born.  I actually have a pair of them, and they were a great deal at $75 for both!

A little dresser from Urban Farm Girl Co., purchased at the Kane County Flea Market in St. Charles, IL.  Mary, from Urban Farm Girl Co., has the best painted furniture that she does herself...can't wait to buy some more pieces from her when we move!  The rug and crib linens (except for baby quilt) are from Target.

The crib is new and from Babies R Us, but I love that it still has a vintage vibe to it. The quilt is handmade from vintage embroidered linens, by a friend of mine, it is absolutely amazing!  I have been on the fence as to whether or not I really like those decals on the wall... not vintage-y enough i feel, but they are bright and cheerful though.

Another shot of the side table with an upholstered slipper chair that I have also had for awhile.  The fabric "M" on the wall is from Anthropologie and the pillow from Cath Kidston (oh how I love Cath Kidston).  The hooks on the wall were meant to be much cuter (they are the removable 3M variety), but we are in a rental and the walls are plaster (?) and just crumble when I nail into it, creating gaping holes...ahhhh, so frustrating!
I also would have painted the walls if we were allowed to...reason #152 that I can't wait to have my own house!

Art work I made by using scrapbook paper and book pages and assembling them in store bought frames from Micheal's craft store.  I added the ribbon to the smaller framed picture.

The room is pretty tiny, so I have very limited space, but it's working for now, and Maggie seems to enjoy it!

Your daughters room is just adorable! I love it! Also, I think the vinyl stickers above the crib look vintage, at first glance I thought that they were. If true vintage is what you are looking for check Ebay for Myercord or Meyercord(sorry can't remember the correct spelling) decals and see what you can find. I have had a great deal of success with finding wonderful vintage decals that way.
Just a thought~
Love your blog by the way.:o)

Just checked is Meyercord Decals and there are some adorable decals out there! Not a seller just a heavy buyer.:o)

Judy said...

Really beautiful. I love it. I linked over from Finding Fabulous and I'm glad I did. I am your latest follower. I would love if you would come and check out my blog and follow me back at Thanks.

What a darling room you've designed. I love the cheerful colors. The vintage lamp is SO cute! But then I love lamps! Great job. I'm signing up to follow your blog and I hope you'll visit me at and do the same. We have similar taste (though my nursery years are long gone!)
God bless and thanks for sharing,

Ahh Stacy, I love everything about the room - even the wall decals

Ahhh, what a sweet room. I like the decals. They remind me of the art that Jenny from 'All Sorts' does.
I use the 3M hooks too. I either spray paint mine or I have this gold and silver rub stuff that I got from Michael's crafts and I antique them. They look so much better that way. Have you been to Dick Blick's in Chicago? I'm sure they have it there. I am in Heaven in that store.

Angela said...

I love your vintage baby room, so sweet.
I'm sure your little girl will have sweet dreams in that cute room.
