Antiques for Little Ones

I had the flu last week. Actually, I have no idea if it was the flu but for the sake of putting a name on a knock-me-down illness, let's call it flu.

And this week has been a roller coaster of playing catch up after being in a fog for a week. The upside? I watched an entire season of Fuller House. Which is not really an upside. Because it's terrible. But I watched the entire season, so what does that say about me.

So I'm back with a soothing child's room because I'm craving calm and recovery at the moment. And this is SUCH a great example of how to use antiques/vintage for children. I love the idea of using pieces with history that can grow with a child. This little girl is going to love having that nightstand chest in her grown-up home one day.

I'm pretty tolerant of all things, but I have bad feelings toward most children's furnishings. They don't have staying power. But a room like this will grow and evolve with its mini mistress.

  1. There is much to be desired for when it comes to children's furniture. The picture you posted is a wonderful example of how pieces can transition over time. I love that! Many of the pieces can actually be used in almost any room of the house. I'm all about flexibility.

    I hope you are feeling better!
