I had this room done a month before our little man arrived. And now he is 3 months....1 + 3 = 4.
Yup, I am officially a horrible blogger.
Cest la vie, life, it's meant to be lived, not sat in front of a computer!
I had a VERY teeny tiny budget for the nursery. So much so, that all I ended up buying was the paint, fabric, lamp, and a clock. Everything else was re-used and re-purposed. And I BUDGET shopped for the stuff that I did buy. The entire room ended up costing $93.
Given that this was a budget room, I was nervous that it wouldn't turn out like I had it pictured in my mind, but I couldn't be happier with the result! I went with a very neutral color scheme - white, creme, grey, and natural wood tones because honestly, I was so worried that our he would be a she so I wanted something easily interchangeable. That being said, I am a lover of neutrals and the colorful nurseries that I was seeing just weren't appealing to me. Some people like their rooms to be energetic and fun, but not me. I like mine to be calming and serene.
I made the quilt, drapes, and pillow.
And my mama made the crib skirt.
This is my favorite project. My brother-in-law was selling his house and he had a bunch of old windows in the garage so I took some. I made the map on photoshop and got it printed at staples for a whopping $5 and made the letters with vinyl that I already had.
So there it is! My little man's room. Which I think he loves given that he sleeps amazingly in there! hehe ;)
