I wanted to create a perfect little nursery space that could grow with my little guy. I created a lumberjack inspired space with both vintage and modern touches. The room was easy and affordable to create. Also my husband is military and we live on base housing so I was limited to what I could do with the space! However I made it work and was pleased with the outcome! More at everythingemilygblog.blogspot.com

My favorite item would probably have to be the giant cardboard bull... We refer to her as Babe the Ox!
My advice to PN readers would be to have fun and don't be afraid to be adventurous in the space you are creating. Use simple items such as shoes, a onesie, or burp clothes to add special little decorating touches to your space. If you splurge on anything let it be the crib. The crib seems to always be the focal point in a nursery.
