We're so proud of the nursery we put together for our first child, a baby girl named Olive, who we welcomed to this world on December 1st. Like many others we wanted her room to grow with her & not make it too "baby". We also incorporated used pieces and DIY projects to keep the overall cost low.
I started with a few basic items I knew I wanted to bring in...a white Jenny Lind crib, an old dresser I had refinished, the arrangement of pictures frames we collected to use as table numbers at our wedding, and ivory ruffled curtains. I also knew I wanted to do "greige" horizontal stripes around the room to bring in something different. The other colors weren't chosen until I went shopping at our local fabric store for her bedding.

Such a hard question to answer! The whole room was such a labor of love...we spent hours painting those stripes, building the closet, sewing the bedding...that its hard to say I like something more than something else. I guess if I had to choose it would be our wall quote that I see every time I walk in her door...its so perfect. She really has brought more joy than we ever imagined to our family. And the custom design by the awesome people at WallQuotes.com was just perfect for her room.
