We had a small square room to work with so we used lots of art work and put furniture on angles to make it more interesting.
We used an antique hoosier to store diapers, wipes, lotion etc. and then used the table part as a changing table. We couldn't find a mobile that we liked so we handmade one. We used framed wrapping paper from his baby shower to use as art work.
We also have a banner on the crib that we made for the baby shower, which we only ended up using for these pictures and took it down once baby was born.
We were inspired by the circus! Bright colors and animals.

I love the elephant rug and our mobile. We are very proud of how it turned out!
Think bright and be creative. We re-used a lot of stuff from our baby shower, keep your eyes peeled for cute wrapping paper and decorations.

It's cute, but no one has pointed out that the circle bunting is a potential hazard for strangulation. Just wanted to say that in case anyone was really considering adding that to their cribs!

This banner from the baby shower was only used for pictures, once the baby was born we took it down. Thanks for your concern though!
