Since we are a family on a budget I had to craigslist most of my items so therefore started shopping immediately. I started visually shopping ideas on pinterest and online for inspiration and now I am ready to reveal the FINAL product. As you enter the room here is what you see.
|Shaggy White rug from Target on sale for $66 Curtain Rod from Ross for $12.99 and the Two Shabby White Curtain Panels from Target for $24.99 each (Kind of spendy but exactly the look I was going for so I splurged a little!)|
|Crib off Craiglist for $50.00 and refinished by my husband and I. 4-piece Carter's Bumble Bee Bedding from Babies R Us for $100 on clearance|
Madison wanted to be a part of the nursery and decided her sister needed some "babies" in her crib. She gave up three of her stuffed animals for her new sister to have :) She is so excited for Katie to be born and is always wanting to be a part of the process. Madison helped me clean and organize this room every time I was in there.
My original plan was to paint the flowers onto the tree... But my husband had this super amazing idea to buy little budding silk flowers and use thumbtacks to pin them on!!! He saw how many hours/days/weeks (LOL) I spent laying out, drawing and painting the trees on the wall and he thought it would take to long to paint all the flowers on. I am so absolutely thrilled with how the flowers turned out and gave the wall some dimension! Plus it only took me 20 minutes to pin them on versus hours hand painting them!
Close ups of the birds I hand painted onto the wall.
|Bird House from Goodwill for $1.00! refinished by me :)|
Close up of the lamp and the dresser handles from Hobby Lobby. And we have already been stocking up on diapers. You can NEVER have enough :)
No nursery is complete without a sitting chair! I really wanted a rocking chair but my Father in Law had this blue wing bag chair that he didn't want anymore that I decided to bring into the nursery. Since it was free it was a lot cheaper then buying a rocking chair or refinishing one off Craigslist to match the room. Plus it is SUPER comfy!!! :)
I have a few more details to add to the room. I have her letters for her name to hang on the wall... (If I can ever find the "Y" in her name! I have been to Hobby Lobby probably 4 times for that one letter and they NEVER have it in stock!?! I may add curtains to the closet to cover it up but haven't decided. There are no doors :( I wish I could hide the stuff in her closet but since it is an older home the doors cannot be bought at the store and would have to be custom made. I am also "considering" making a mobile for her crib but I am not sure if it would be too busy with the mural behind it so not sure. Anyways I am so excited to share!!! I love how it turned out :)
