Emily's Nursery by Mama Erin

If you've been reading my blog for awhile, you know my sister, Erin, is a talented artist.  She decides she wants to do something or copy something cool she's seen...and well, there it is.  It doesn't happen quite like this for most of us layfolk.

I wanted to show you what a great nursery Erin created for Emily with her own special DIY touches.

Her best creation (tied with Emily?)?  Big brother Sam.

Is she serious?? She could be paid some good money to design other people's nurseries - I love it!!

How's yours coming along?

So, so pretty! And loving that handpainted carpet!

Wow! Übertalented sister! The stencilled rug is gorgeous and must've been extremely difficult to do. Überimpressed! I love the painting above the crib too. Great inspiration for Alexander's nursery!

Oh! Totally meant to say the big brother is pretty darn cute too! :-)
