Alex has finally gotten her bedroom finished. She had to be creative to come up with ideas since it also serves as Mason’s nursery. I think she did an incredible job of creating a soft and restful place for them.
I wish we had taken ‘before’ photographs!!! But, just imagine bright sunshine yellow walls and lots of Bohemian style flavor. This is the way Caroline had the room before she left for college three years ago. It was sad to see it go, but the walk out basement allows Alex and Mason to have complete privacy if they want it.
Alex has worked so hard on it. She took her time deciding on the color scheme and furniture choices and placement. It certainly paid off. The room is delightful!
The walls are painted Behr’s Vintage Linen - a very soft gray
Papa G-Man picked out the crib before we got home with Mason.
Alex covered the wooden letters with moss and glued organza ribbon to the backs.
The vintage coat rack with those wonderful iron hangers was purchased at Angel’s Antiques.
It was green with roses painted on it, but it ended up white and distressed. I love it!
Aunt Janna (sister # 4) bought this gown for Mason to wear home from the hospital.
Hanging on the other end is the coordinating romper that I found for him a little later.
Of course, he has long outgrown them!
And, here is the sweet boy who sleeps in this pretty room with his mommy.
GOD IS GOOD!!!
Moving around the room to the right is the little round bedside table.
It is a vintage piece that I have had a long time.
The vintage bucket, recently found at a junk store, is a new addition to the room.
This is the Peter Rabbit oil painting that Alex just finished. Yes, she is very good!!!
I got the barn wood frame at Hobby Lobby when they were half price.
This is the bed that Caroline picked out when we moved into the house.
She got another one for her college apartment so this one stayed in the room.
Luckily, Alex loves it too.
I love the mix of blue and beige bedding.
Alex loves Winnie the Pooh, but she prefers the old one with the longer nose.
I found one at Tuesday Morning for their room.
Isn’t it pretty when the bedding is layered?
The panels that she used for the windows were some I purchased when we moved in.
Here Alex is enjoying the fruits of her labor!
Alex moved an antique bookcase in from the downstairs den.
It worked beautifully between the windows.
The photo of Mason was taken in the hospital on the morning that he came home.
He was wearing his sweet Aunt Janna’s gown.
A vintage planter looks adorable on top of vintage Children’s encyclopedias.
Mason already has a wonderful start on his book collection!!
Alex found this cute rabbit in Florida.
He found the perfect place to hang his swing in this vintage birdcage stand!
This bookcase has been with us for a long time.
It is one of my favorite pieces ever!!!
It is filled with all sorts of goodies.
I love the photo of Alex and Caroline when they were young.
Paddington Bear belonged to Alex as a baby.
Love this birdcage too. The glazed earthenware pitcher was an old piece that I remember when I was growing up…a very loooooong time ago!
The area is Mason’s changing table.
The chest is Caroline’s too, but she didn’t have room for it in her apartment.
It was the perfect height for the changing table.
Alex keeps diapering supplies handy on this pretty iron stand.
Alex found this sign at Old Time Pottery.
I framed photocopies of Peter and Benjamin Bunny!
Here we have come full circle - back to Mason’s side of the room!
The rocking chair was purchased last weekend at an auction for a measly $23.00!!!
It is old, but in great shape and it was already painted glossy white.
A dachshund pillow and story book are ready for a night time story.
Alex found this chippy blue shelf on sale for $12.00 at Angel’s Antiques – another incredible find at a bargain price!
“Baa-Baa Blue Sheep”, is holding the guitar that “Uncle Pebo” (brother # 1 and only!!!)carved and decorated for Mason. He is a gifted carpenter… singer…and picker of all stringed instruments.
The painted angel adds the perfect touch to this wall.
Thank you for going on the tour of Alex and Mason’s newly decorated bedroom.
I hope they are both comfortable and happy in their “Blue Creek Basement”.
We love having them here with us.
