I am loving this fun idea of using old, wooden milk crates or soda crates for storage in a nursery or child's room. Just add some casters on the bottom to make it easy to move around the room as needed and then roll under the bed to put it away. Perfect for toys, diapers or for whatever you need to store! I also like the idea of vintage suitcases and old baskets tucked under too. Images via HGTV, ohdeedoh, babyspace

By now, I am sure most of you have seen Lauren's (of Pure Style Home) outdoor table. I fell in love with the mix of rustic boards and industrial sawhorses. I have plans for my husband to make one for our backyard. Isn't her's gorgeous with the pumpkins? Love that. In the warmer months can't you just see tons of candles all down the middle of it for an evening dinner party? Thanks for such great inspiration, Lauren! While I am on the subject of tables, I love how easy and fun these tables from Country Living and Simply Seleta are for kids. Just cover in butcher/craft paper, draw on the place mats and add some crayons or markers! Great for parties and at holiday time for the little ones to sit at! *country living picture via viva full house

There is a blank space above the chest of drawers in my baby's nursery. I have had a hard time deciding what to put there and every time I decide to do one thing, something else catches my eye. But, I think a chalkboard is the thing I have finally decided on....for good! I hope anyway ;). I love the chalkboard wall in my last post about moomah. That little lamb drawn on it is just too precious. I plan to use the chalkboard for drawing something on..maybe an animal or writing the letter Gg and then drawing a girl like on the vintage alphabet card in the picture above..who knows. I like how Tracery Interiors have these little chalkboards hung with some sort of string or twine. Seleta recently posted these images of them in use! Also check out this page on their blog of a chalkboard wall. Isn't that a precious room? At first I wanted to frame the chalkboard and now think I will just have a thin board cut at Lowe's or home depot and hang with twine like they did. My friend Holly did a post recently on chalkboards. Be sure to check out her ideas! *photos via my sweet Savannah, tracery interiors, simply seleta, houzz, style-files, cakies, (I don't remember where I found the photo with the gorgeous green drapes, if you know let me know for proper credit!), and project nursery

I can't believe I've been to NYC and didn't know about this place! I just happened to find out about it by reading Erika's (Urban Grace Interiors) great post about her recent NYC trip. I think I could move my baby's jenny lind crib right in and live there, ha! I love the huge chalkboard, the cow picture, the framed prints, the lights, the school chairs...all of it. It is definitely on my list for next time I visit NYC! *pictures via moomah, decor8 and design sponge!

I love the bathroom in the top picture. It was in the home of Haskell Harris, one of the former editors of the much loved Cottage Living magazine. Would somebody please bring that magazine back? This Birmingham cottage was featured in Southern Living magazine. Click here to see more of this darling house. Notice the subway tiles, glossy black door and the brass faucet...love it all! Any ideas on where I could find a mirror like that? I also love the brass shower fixture in the second picture..perfect patina!
