Jan23 Vintage Nursery DIY 2013

Adrienne Letine of Dream Book Design sent us her son Brayden’s nursery and I could just cry at how beautifully vintage it is. They did most of the work themselves, including turning a closet into a little nook area. You are going to love her because she gave us lots of the juicy details about their redesign. The greatest tragedy of it all is that they are about to move. NOOOOOOO!!!!! Well I guess we’ll just have to keep following her blog to see another home transformed.






Just to make your mind spin a bit more, here’s the before picture.

    What an adorable nursery – I love the closet turned bench/dressing area/ book storage. Curious – what was used to hold the books? Thanks!
