Well, our little Maura Catherine is 6 weeks old (wow, time is flying!!) but I never finished sharing with you guys the pics of her nursery before she made her appearance:)
If you've been following along, you'll remember that I still had to frame and hang my 19th century hand-colored vintage botanical prints that I bought at the Brimfield Antique Show this year. I knew I wanted to put them above Maura's dresser/changing table. Here was that wall before the prints:
The prints are only 5 x 7, but I wanted to fill the wall and make them a definite focal point, so I chose large scale frames with a wide double mat.
At first I wasn't sure if I wanted to keep the actual frames black. I thought about painting them (white or maybe some sort of subtle green), but then once they were up I a) got lazy and b) liked how the black picked up on the dark knobs of the dresser and oil-rubbed bronze drapery rods. WDYT? Are they ok black?
I also changed the styling of the dresser and added my letterpress type that spells "play" (also from Brimfield) and updated the "Sneak Peak" frame with one of Maura's real ultrasounds.
I still have 2 more things I want to do in here before I am technically 100% done. Not sure how soon those will happen though. I still at some point want to do a big nursery post with all the pics and a source list. Stay tuned. Hope everyone had a great weekend:)
To see the rest of the nursery progress, check out the before pics here, and during here, here, here, and here.
