::Baby Kingsbury's Nursery::
As so many of you have been patiently waiting, we finally got the final touches of Baby Kingsbury's room completed. So time to share away! Hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
Now we need this little lady to make her arrival.

I think this little princess has enough shoes and hair bows to last us awhile. :)
Lots of homemade items surround this little princess's room. Wanted to share with you a few of my Do it yourself Projects.

Purchased this beauty for $75 off of Craigslist. Found the perfect chalk paint and painted away! No sanding, no prepping just paint and dry.  Applied two coats. Then added a clear wax with a tad bit of dark wax to add some interest.  Cleaned previous hardware and reattached.  Finding the perfect color was a bit of a challenge but thankfully I discovered  Persnicketys in Sumner, Wa where they carried American Paint Co. Chalk Paint in Coral Reef. Just Perfect!

The Process. I did sand the top a tad as it had a few soda rings on the top and I didn't want those to show thru.

Finding the perfect side table for my rocker was a challenge. One day while shopping at my favorite store, Hobby Lobby I found this beauty on the clearance isle all bruised up. Turned out perfect with a little chalk paint and roughing of the edges.

A Pinterest Find! take a Large oatmeal container. Add some Cardstock (you can do any color or design) I chose A paper bag design. Then I added burlap to the top using a hot glue gun to adhere the burlap to the edges. Glad I went with the burlap as it helps the headbands stay in place. I picked up this candle holder on the clearance isle at Wal-Mart so it coast a total of $4! Love it!

Needed a vase for at first I thought some twigs but that was a bit much with the rest of the items on the dresser and then I remembered I needed something for cotton balls and swabs so this cute mason jar worked perfectly! Added a little lace hot glue, and then a burlap flower from michaels (in the scrapbook dept) a little twine and done!


Hope you enjoy!
