A room that would work with the rest of our house and be sweet & fun but not too "nursery-ish."
Eclectic french cottage?
I sewed the crib skirt and recovered the cane-backed chair in the same fabric (a discontinued P. Kaufmann floral.) We bought the crib on amazon.com and thrifted the orange chair, the dresser and the table (both the table and dresser had to be repainted.) We owned but repainted the bookshelf and child's rocker. I made the bunting banner and tissue-paper pom poms getting help from online tutorials on Martha Stewart's website as well as youtube. The artwork consists of an etsy print, shower invitations and another already print we already owned. We ordered a shade pendant light kit from shades of light and ordered the shade at a local light shop. I glued pom-pom trim to the drum shade and sewed the trim onto the curtains. The nursery ended up costing us around $500.00
The bunting banner or fabric used for the crib skirt. I think both are so sweet.
Look for things you can either do yourself or order inexpensively for a one-of-a-kind look no one else will have!
