I struggled to come up with a name for this post for quite some time. As corny as it sounds, there really are no words to describe my excitement about this news! So I apologize for the lack of originality. I’m a mess over here. All that kept coming to mind was “peeing in my pants excited…”. Yea, a little much? Probably not the image I want to convey, ha.
So… if you haven’t already seen, Zoey’s Nursery was featured yesterday by Jen at Made By Girl!!! And if you didn’t already know (how could you not?) Jen is an “It” girl. She’s amazing. Her work is brilliant. And I am absolutely blown away for the time being.
Yea. I’m pretty happy right now.
I can not thank all of the support I’ve received this past month enough. You guys are awesome! Thank you so much Jen, for featuring us over here at Cape27! I’ll be in la-la land the remainder of the afternoon
I’ve neglected to show you guys a little update that we did in the nursery a few days ago. The wall between Zoey’s door and the closet doors had been bare for quite some time. I was set on doing one of her professional newborn pics, but it took me this long to get around to finally settling on one (she’s now over 2 months). We can go ahead and blame that indecision on our AMAZING photographer, Nikita Gross. She specializes in Wedding & Boudoir, but we were able to snag her for some maternity and newborn shots! Definitely take the time to check out her brand new website. It is magical (make sure you have your sound on!). Here’s what we came up with in the nursery
This would be a good time to go ahead an announce my all-time favorite store for affordable yet stylish frames. Ikea! Love, love, love. This frame measures about 20″ x 20″, came with the matting, and is a steal at $19.99. The only thing to watch for is the actual size of their mat openings. For instance, this frame calls for a 11″ x 11″ photograph. Not the most abundant size around. We ordered our copy from Costco, which had a 12″ x 12″ size option. Target is also an awesome source for ready-to-go picture frames. I’m loving the way it came out.

We did a complete overhaul to prepare for this little one. New flooring, bead board, crown molding, chair rail, baseboards, and paint to name a few. Check out that grey shag rug, yum! And all the bedding and curtains were made by Etsy seller Jayna over at RockyTop Design.
It just wouldn’t be complete without the Sesame Street mini Zoey doll.
We finally settled on a glider after months of debate. We wanted something simple and modern without the high price tage. Turns out the options are slim. This glider and ottoman from BabiesRUs was a great deal and blends nicely without distracting from the rest of the room.
I have a weird obsession with sock monkeys. I plan to pass it along to Zoey
This galvanized tub caught our attention strolling the aisles at Lowes and we ended up purchasing a few for toy storage. I love using products in unexpected ways. Plus they work great with the other galvanized accessories throughout the room.
One of the best buys was the dresser. Originally meant to be a bookcase from Ikea, we flipped it on it’s side and added legs, drawers, and new knobs from Anthro. We are loving the white furniture on the white backdrop. So light and airy for a little girl.
This classic teardrop lamp is so fun in lime green!
I’m not going to lie, this gallery of frames is my pride and joy. The fabric was my inspiration for the entire room design and what better way to honor it than framing? I collected chunky frames from thrift stores and shops in the area. A little white spray paint and they look like they were made for each other. Framing fabric is one of the easiest projects to bring some serious color and pattern into a room. Below, we added more galvanized storage bins! I’m thinking of continuing this theme throughout the house. I’m Loving the industrial vibe!
