before and after

before & after: jennifer’s nursery + sabina’s cabinet

by Grace Bonney

this second nursery makeover comes from d*s reader jennifer flores. jennifer’s daughter chloe mainly sleeps in a crib in the master bedroom, but also has her own room. this is a space where jennifer and her husband spend time playing, rocking, and reading to chloe, so they decided to update it to reflect their current needs. the project began by adding ikea wardrobes made to look like built-ins, additional storage for clothing and linens, and a new shelf for chloe’s toys. the final touch- a window seat for when chloe is old enough to read by the window. i love the cheerful color palette- it looks like such a happy place to grow up. thanks for sharing, jennifer!

this cabinet makeover comes from jewelry designer sabina koenigs of circ. she was badly in need of a place to organize her jewelry supplies so she found a used hutch, stripped down the teal paint and painted it a neutral french grey. after it dried she added a sweet vintage wallpaper pattern to the back and found herself with a beautiful new place to store supplies. great work, sabina!
