Twice loved baby bassinet...

A friend gave us this antique wicker bassinet which will be perfect for Baby Girl's first weeks at home!  After some spray paint, lots of tulle, bedding & a bow with bling, the bassinet is ready.  We loved the idea of covering the base to look like a tutu.  The brooch on the bow is one of our vintage finds and the ideal finishing touch on a bed for a princess!

This is how we do it at Twice Loved Vintage...


Antique wicker bassinet...well loved!

The bassinet ready for Baby Girl...

Cozy & comfy with a beautiful vintage brooch...so twice loved!!

Thanks, Judy, for the gift of this beautiful bassinet!!

Just me being me...Lori

  1. Where did you get the mattress for your bassinet?

    1. I know this reply is several years late; however, I'm sure there will be others, such as myself, seeking information to follow. I ordered a custom made oval bassinet mattress from ababy.com. The bassinet given by my mother-in-law to my niece (my side of the family) looks exactly like this one and the interior dimensions are 31" x 19". I ran across this pic when when Googling "bassinet tutus" to get some idea of how much tulle I would need. I am making a bumper pad, which will have to be about 8" high (depth from edge to floor of interior is 10" and the mattress is 2" thick)
