PHENOMINAL Vingage Baby's Room

This is a dream room for a little princess!  A mom to be called me at the end of October with a very special vision of a vintage nursery.  She knew she was having a girl...her third one!  That being said, her husband was tired of pink walls!  She was very open to any color, but together we decided a neutral color for the walls would give us the look we wanted.  Here is a picture of the room during phase one of the project.

These are the "after" photos:

 The walls were first textured with a crackle effect.  After that, a raised stencil was applied.  The walls were washed with a metallic glaze, and then a glitter glaze.  The raised portion of the stencil was painted with a metallic pearl.  To finish it off (because you know I can't stop) tiny pearls were applied...and let me tell you...IT IS GORGEOUS! You can't tell in the pictures...but the whole room just glows!

Stencils were "sprinkled" around the room randomly, but in a manner in which they would frame furniture pieces and window treatments.

This changing table was also refinished...but I'll talk about that another day.  Let me get back to this princess room that I just cannot stop looking at!!

Isn't that the cutest little cabinet with wings?  She got this at Round Top...can you believe I have never been?  The precious dress is an heirloom that her two previous daughters have worn.  What a SWEET room!  I can feel the love just looking at it!

The ceiling was painted in a warm pearl, with raised stencilling framing the chandelier.  She got the chandelier, rug, and curtains from Restoration Hardware.  They have a GREAT new location in Highland Village.  If you can get your hands on a catalog...you will wear the pages out!

See what I mean about the "glow"?  My heart is beating fast just looking at it! (I have to stop to do a back flip I am so happy!)

This is her precious pre-schooler demonstrating the benefits of a rocking lamb.  She was quite the helper during this project.  I had so much fun doing this...they made me feel like a part of the family.  By the time it was all said and done, this little one was calling me Nee' Nee'!  (my heart is FULL)

I hope you enjoyed looking at this as much as I enjoyed doing it. 
Stay tuned...I have more projects to share that are in the works!

Have a wonderful day!
Nee' Nee'
