It’s been awhile since I’ve posted an update on Miss E’s big girl room! I’ve focused all efforts on finishing the kitchen (which is on its way to being done this weekend), but I’ve still been chipping away at making her room just the way I envision it. So I thought I’d pop in and share the new Calendar Wall Art and Chalkboard Dresser.
I’d been looking for a rustic dresser for a while when I came across this gorgeous ‘reclaimed wood’ dresser with chalkboard labels at Hobby Lobby. It was perfect. It came out to just under $100 with coupons. I tried to find it online for you all but didn’t have any luck, but I thought it was a steal compared to this one on Wayfair for $979!
I wish I had fabulous handwriting, but I don’t. Never have. So I created stencils with my Silhouette and then wrote on each drawer with a chalk pen.
I just love how each drawer has a label. Obviously I love the typography and the look. But it will be great for when Miss E starts to read and I cannot tell you how FANTASTIC it is for husbands! Ha. No more excuses on not being able to find anything :)
To finish off the space I created wall art made from an old calendar I held on to over the years. The vintage prints of Paris combined with these gorgeous white open frames from Hobby Lobby really made the look. (UPDATE: Many of you have asked where you can find the calendar, it’s from a company called Cavallini & Co. and they have very similar ones in stock).
The prints actually came from a calendar of Paris monuments that my sister-in-law gave me the year my husband and I got married. I’ve held on to it for the past 6 years because A) I’m obsessed with Paris B) I loved the vintage prints C) It was from the year we got married. So that justifies my hoarding, right?!
I’m just glad that I was finally able to put them to use.
There is also a story behind the accessories on the dresser. The wire form was a gift from my Aunt and Uncle for my 16th birthday. I’ve always been into sewing and creating and I’ve taken it with me from place to place throughout my life. The tiny iron was from my grandma, used to iron baby clothes, and the E was another find at Hobby Lobby :)
Here are a few more peeks I’ve given of her room… It seems like I’m changing things up weekly in there but it is actually on its way to coming together!
