This is our first baby, and I was convinced we were having a boy. I had started planning out a boy nursery using the colors gray, blue and green. At our 20 week ultrasound, we learned my intuition was wrong and "he" was actually a "she"! Good thing, because my husband and I could not agree on a boy's name that we both liked ;)
My goal was to create a room that was pretty, calming, and didn't scream "baby." I'm not really into all the butterfly, Winnie the Pooh, and safari themed nurseries.
I love gray walls, so that formed the canvas for the room. After that, I started looking for fabrics that incorporated pink. I found the pink and navy blue fabric at Pottery Barn Kids, but I didn't care for the crib bedding. My mom is an amazing seamstress, so I ordered the kid's single duvet cover in the flower pattern and she made the quilt, crib skirt and pillow out of it. Once I chose the bedding, the rest of the room was built around it.

The bedding is really special to me, because my mom made it. She made my and my sibling's nursery bedding when we were babies, so I think it is pretty neat that she made my daughter's bedding too.
I also love our glider. It is super comfy and was an amazing deal! I was getting ready to fork over $1,000+ for a glider, and then I came across this one on Project Nursery. I never would have thought to look at Walmart. The best part is that it was a third of the price, but looks just as nice!
You don't have to spend a fortune to have a great looking nursery.
