Vivian Jane’s Vintage-Inspired Nursery

Welcome to Vivian Jane’s adorable crib — another entry in our Eye Candy Giveaway! Her nursery is filled with all kinds of wonderful vintage finds. Thanks so much to Sarah M. from Michigan for sharing her decorating talents. Here’s the highlights in Sarah’s own words…

“The bedding was made from House Inc. fabrics. I bought some of the things from House Inc., but my friend made the bumper, diaper stacker, soft blocks and comforter (which is just purely for aesthetics, ha). The mobile is chenille bunnies (new Wendy Bellissimo).”

“The hanger is a vintage reproduction.”

“I found the green cabinet from an antique store in my hometown in Marshall, MI. It can be turned on its side to use as a toybox, but I would need to install a safety hinge. Found the nursery canisters at a flea market– vintage decals on vintage glass jars. The hankie is vintage with Jack & Jill.”

“The Jenny Lind crib and changing table are new (from Penney’s!). We painted and distressed the letters over the changing table to spell out ‘Vivian’.”

“The clock is a reproduction. The picture of the child in the raincoat is vintage. It’s hard to tell from the photo, but every color is a different piece of fabric or felt.”

“The chest of drawers was my brother’s as a kid (he’s 38, so is that vintage?). It was navy blue, but we painted over it, and I love that some of the old navy blue has been peeking through in areas of wear.”

“The lamp is vintage. I tea-stained the shade and added the pom fringe.”

“The chenille rocker is new. The quilt was made by my aunt for Vivian when she was born. The curtains and canvas storage bins around the room are Target Shabby Chic.”

Absolutely wonderful, Sarah. The eye candy is to die for. Thanks again for the inspiring photos!

Stay Tuned! Cody’s Wild West room coming soon!

  1. Thanks for featuring Viv’s space, Deanna! I blogged about it and your wonderful site here:



  2. It’s very charming. I just worry that an old cabinet with chipping paint may contain lead. Small children can injest the lead and have serious health issues as a result. For baby and toddlers, it’s better to strip and repaint in a non-toxic paint. Of course, there are lead testing kits you can buy.


  3. I really love seeing the Jack and Jill lamp. I had one of those when I was a child. Such a sweet nursery.


  4. I am looking for that lamp. I also had one as a child and want it for my daughter. Can you tell me where you got it. I love your whole room it is just wonderful.
