Hey Everyone! Hope you are all doing well. Personally, I don’t want summer to end, so I’m in denial that it’s flying by so fast!

Anyways, to day I thought I’d show you all one of the last “befores” from Jason’s Nursery.

I’ve had a lot of questions about this sweet bassinet. Mainly where it’s from.

It is actually an antique that was give to us by a mutual friend. It was actually a mahogany color when we got it first. But when we had June we spray painted it a cream color to match our bedroom from way back when we first got married. Unfortunately, the only before photo I have of it was from it’s “cream” stage.

Here’s a photo of June in it. This bassinet is kinda special since we’ve used it for both babies now.

Apparently we didn’t sand it down enough before spray painting it, because by the time we needed it for Jason, the paint had started bubbling & peeling off. So I enlisted the help of my wonderful husband to strip it down to wood again (what a pain with all those nooks and crannies!!!!) with a liquid sander, and then paint it a fresh white.

It basically looks brand new now! We’ve actually moved him into a crib now that he is almost 6 months. But I haven’t taken any new photos of that set up yet.

And how cute is the baby mobile hanging above it? (See that tutorial HERE)

We used a standard baby bassinet mattress in it. And I like to throw these DIY Cloud Pillows in there when he isn’t using them. We also received quite a few hand knit white blankets from friends and family, and I positively LOVE them in the bassinet. White on White on White.

Here he is just a few weeks old in his bassinet.

I’m definitely holding onto this piece in case we have more babies.

    I LOVE your nursery – especially the mobile.

    On a side note, what is the font you use for your website address in the blog post signature and on some of the sidebar buttons. It's so lovely. I am hoping it's one you sell somewhere!

    Hi Meg! Thanks so much!

    The cursive font is called Octavia, and can be found here: https://creativemarket.com/AFStudio/161630-Octavia-Scriptu=Hannah_Hathaway

    The other one is one I made, and I'm not distributing it right now. But a similar, free one is called The Skinny.

    Hope that helps! 🙂
