Pumpkins nursery

Well, look what is in our front yard.
This is the nursery that almost never was. When I found out about my hunny's job change and our probable move I abandoned all my grand plans for our new baby's nursery. We thought we would be long gone before she needed a space of her own. I sold the crib in a yard sale and figured we would just get what we needed when we moved into our new place. Well - this is just another way that I am learning to go with the flow and hold all my plans/dreams with an open hand. (Yes, I am talking about decorating AND the above adventure).

C's nursery was so fun for me to do. My challenge was...
~Create a nursery that was "sellable"
~Create a space that was enjoyable to be in
~Do it with basically NO budget

Here is the finished result.     
Almost everything in here was handmade or re purposed somehow with exception of the crib Here is a little breakdown.
Crib - walmart (in store)
Dresser/night table - already had
Chair - second hand 
Crib sheet - handmade from thrifted sheet
Bed skirt - re purposed twin bed skirt
Mobile -  Handmade
Buntings- made with scraps
Lamp - re imagined with scrap fabric
Joy poster - http://www.katiedaisy.net/
art- http://www.etsy.com/shop/BreezyTulip and handmade

My favorite thing about this space is the photo's above the bed - I often walk in and see her staring up at them or talking to them with her little baby coo's.
I also love the butterfly mobile - all I have to do is blow on it a little and the butterflies dance in the air. It always makes her grin.
