Vintage Airplane Nursery

 Before Eric & I knew the sex of our baby, we decided if it was a boy we would do an airplane theme. We kind of did it in honor of Eric's dad, who is a pilot for American Airlines, but also served in the Air Force & flew the SR 76- so cool! Here is what we came up with.

Antiques I bought at the Rosebowl Flea Market
The top airplane hanging in the corner is a model that Eric completed when he was younger
 Cute airplane pictures, many featuring Bennett's ACTUAL Grandpa Brown in uniform and in front of his plane.
 It was so hard to find an airplane mobile I liked. We wanted vintage airplanes, and we found this one at Restoration Hardware. The only one in existence, I swear!
 I re-purposed that B (used to be for Brown) and painted it Silver-Sage (a Restoration Hardware color- love it!) and now it stands for Bennett!
 View of the whole room. Walls are painted tan & silver sage.
 I ordered the pilot's wings wall vinyl on Etsy. And my mom found the Captain's Jacket at a thrift store. (They also have a baby's captain jacket at H & M)
 Here are some close-ups of some of the things in the nursery:

Vintage Airplane Mobile
 Pictures of Grandpa Brown!

 Antiques. We got the idea for the bottles from Anthropologie.


 I love the antique books. I may be a little obsessed.
 My little man!

May I ask where you purchased your baby bedding? I am looking for something similar to this but have had no luck finding it.
Thank you
