This nursery is for my 3rd baby, gender unknown. We were on a tight budget so we got what we could for free or cheap, and I made some items. The brick wallpaper was already in the room, we originally purchased for around $30 from Walmart. The four woodland canvases were dollar store canvases painted with dollar store paint, and decorated with felt scrapbooking stickers (total cost approx $14) Crib bedding is Litto Kids, purchased from Amazon.com with Swag Bucks (so free, but regularly $270) Wall Decal was also from Amazon.com & purchased with Swag Bucks (so free, but regularly $54) Mobile is by Djecko, and was purchased from Dandelionkids.ca ($30) Crib was an Ikea handmedown, refinished & Distressed with baby spray paint for about $20 dresser/change area was found at the side of the road, boxes were from ikea for about $7 each (using to store clothes/diapers etc) Rocking chair/purple pillows/teddy are vintage/family heirlooms, blue pillow is Ikea ($10) Blue burnout fabric was from a discount store, approx $10 Framed scrapbooking paper ($1 paper/$5 frame from Ikea As-Is) Curtains were from another room, originally Walmart for around $20 I believe. Rocking horse is a handmedown from Baby L's brothers :-) We still need to get the new light fixture, but it's not in the budget just yet!
I wanted a simple, homey, modern environment that could grow with this baby, being my 3rd. It was important to me that the design would flow well with the rest of the house, and it needed to be gender neutral as we were unable to find out the sex of this baby.
Paint was silver (behr premium plus as we were covering magenta), so that we could use a rainbow of saturated colors in the rest of the room.
I love the bedding & my mobile!
