No, no, I'm not pregnant!
Just in case the title of this post misled you. :)
The gorgeous and stylish baby, Antonia, is my newest niece. Isn't she adorable?!
But as much as I want to talk and show you pictures of this little bundle of joy, today I simply want to brag about my sister, yeah, my youngest sister, Antonia's mother. After all, she is the brain behind all these beauty!
My sister Adriana lives with her husband and now two kids in Manila, Philippines. That's why we usually communicate through e-mails or chats, and that's precisely the way we were talking when she was about 7 months pregnant and I asked her about her nursery plans. It went something like this...
Me: Hey, are you getting the nursery ready?
Sister:Yes, I've been painting a wall and beginning to bring the crib and things. I might need your advise. I already sent you a picture.
(Of course I hadn't seen it, but I scrolled up through the chat and found the picture).
Me: Oh, now I see it. That's a beautiful room! Do you want to install wallpaper like in that picture?
Sister: No, no, that's not wallpaper, it's a stencil I painted it.
Me: Wait a minute! is that your room?! I thought it was from a magazine or Pinterest!
She totally knocked my socks off! Not only did she stencil the wall, she had already designed and decorated the entire nursery.
She installed decorative shelves... Covered the letter A with scrapbook paper... -Isn't that the cutest little dress?
Gave an old frame a coat of white paint and Voila! Instant art with a small mirror and added decals...
Grabbed big brother's old books and gave them a new cover...
Transformed plain frames into art pieces with decorative paper... Turned an old brown dresser into a nice changing table.
Ordered a custom made rocking chair with cushions and all...
Gave the room a sparkling chandelier and covered the back of the bookcase with wall paper.
And she was asking for advise! :D
Did I tell you that she took these pictures, and is usually the master mind behind photos like this?
Really! The HOME letters in the picture below were also her creation. I'm telling you, today was the day to brag about what an amazing and talented sister I have!
I'm trying to convince her to start her own beauty, home and family blog. ;)
Hey, the crib skirt was another no-sew project she made.
Well done, sis, Well done!
