Audrey's nursery is an eclectic mix of aqua, brown and lime green. It was definitely a low budget room that is filled with the talents and crafts of her family.
The bedding! I purchased her bedding from etsy.com because it was the first set that I loved the eclectic style and how it would grow with her. It was also in my budget! I designed the rest of the room around the bedding.
Vintage, eclectic, budget. I like being able to throw favorite pieces into a room and having them work. I also wanted a room that would grow with her through her toddler years.
Custom made bedding from Pwakets on etsy.com http://www.etsy.com/shop/Pwackets?ref=seller_info Rocking chair was borrowed from my sister. I will definitely channel her strength to get me through those late night feedings and cry fests. Paper lanters from www.LunaBazaar.com I found a free shipping code on the internet to save money. The dresser is a Goodwill find my dad picked up. It was black with zebra stripes and didn't have legs or knobs. He added white beadboard to match the crib and added knobs and legs to give it a cottage feel. The crib was a shower gift and was purchased from Target.com My sister gave me the cute green and white quote. I had a frame, white spray paint and ribbon in my craft room. My sister made the tree and bird mobile. I believe she had $10 into the project. I love it!
That's a tough one. Either the bird and tree mobile my sister made. She spent many hours getting those cutouts just right. Or the stool that she recovered. It was ours when we were toddlers.
I was so overwhlemed with all the choices out there. Once I found a piece I loved, it was so much easier to build the rest of the room around it. Whether its a quilt, great color, vintage piece you've had forever--find your inspiration and go with it. I think the best looking rooms are the ones that don't come prepackaged but the ones that you add to slowly.
