Despite Ada not actually sleeping in her room yet, I've been really keen to share it with you for some time now. The pink, floral vintage style isn't what I fill the rest of my home with anymore, but I really wanted her nursery to be something quite special, filled with handmade decorations, vintage toys and books. Kane doesn't really 'do interiors' so luckily I got free reign over the entire room, I just had him and a friend paint the room and put in a blackout blind so it'll be nice and dark when she does move into here to sleep.
It's quite a small room so I had to pick what pieces I wanted quite carefully. There's a cupboard with a boiler in with a rail for clothes and quite a lot of storage space, so I decided on getting drawers rather than another wardrobe. This vintage set was probably the most expensive piece in the room (after the cot when it moves in!), despite me usually scouring charity shops and car boots for most of my furniture, I was having some difficulty finding a tallboy set which I needed for the space. I finally found a set on ebay for around £175, although I don't really see vintage purchases as spending, as I have my own little vintage store I can always sell things on in (have a little peek here!)
We didn't have a huge budget for this room but I'm so pleased with how it's all coming together, I think a couple more pieces for the walls and we should be done! I'll be sharing the full space as soon as Ada moves in, although with how many times she's still waking in the night, I'm not in any rush!
