Show Us Where You Live: Nurseries/Children's Rooms

It's time for another edition of "Show Us Where You Live" over on Kelly's Korner blog. This week features nurseries/children's rooms. Since we don't have any children, I'm featuring my best friend's nursery instead (she doesn't have a blog!). She has two girls, ages 6 months and 3 1/2, each of whom have the most darling rooms! I've made several cute things for her, so I'll also feature those.

Here's her nursery:She made the personalized wall canvas herself, as well as the large shabby chic antique tin memo board.

This is a door hanging/baby announcement that I made her from antique tin ceiling tiles. She hung it on the hospital door and it now hangs on the baby's nursery door:

The first tin says "It's a Girl", the second is the baby's name, and the third is the birth info.
This is a frame I personalized and then embellished with a bow and a vintage rhinestone brooch:

These are some burp cloths my mother-in-law made and embroidered:

I painted this memory box to put all the little baby gifts in, then mom can use it for the baby's cards and mementos. I just bought a plain white photo box from Michael's, painted it pink, used a stencil for the darker pink design, then glued on a few rhinestones for some sparkle.

Here's everything all together in the box (my mother-in-law also embroidered the blanket and the bib):

This is one of my favorite DIY crafts I've friend had this brass chandelier hanging in her dining room and was going to get rid of it when they got a more updated fixture. We decided to give it a make-over instead and use it in her little girl's room. You can see the step-by-step process from my feature on Spearmint Baby's blog.

Here's the chandelier before:
And after:

Here's photos of the chandelier in her daughter's room:

That's it....I had so much fun making all the little girly accents and I think she did a beautiful job designing both rooms. Thanks for looking!
