Well, there's still a little tweaking to do, and I might add a bit more color after Baby is born, but for now, the nursery is done. It's a compilation of old and new pieces, mostly things that were bought used and repurposed.
The crib we bought used on Craigslist.
I purchased the dresser at a thrift store and gave it a fresh coat of paint, and Winn made new drawers for it (re-using the old drawer fronts) so that they open and close easily.
There was a mirror that came with the dresser, which we also painted and hung above the crib. And I love the old school chair that I found in the barn and painted orange.
As you saw before here, I bought a used ottoman and recovered it. The bookshelf next to the rocking chair is made from some old crates that I've had since my college days. The old blue window above the changing station is one that used to be hanging in our bedroom.
Most of the wall decor (like these shelves) was put together using things we already had.
Winn made the bowed curtain rods out of PVC pipe. I made the mobile out of felt and wire (instructions can be found here).
The rug was purchased from Target.
The two splurges were the new rocking chair and the linen fabric to make the window valances and crib bedding.
The drawers and closet shelves are all stocked with soft little baby things just waiting to be used.
We've received enough blankets to survive several Minnesota winters. I love the variety of handmade quilts, crocheted blankets, soft fleece cuddlies, flannel receiving blankets, and swaddling wraps.
Don't you love the orange hobo diaper bag?
And my favorite part of the room has got to be these little organza star lights that I hung above the changing station for late-night diaper changes.
They're especially pretty at night.
Now all that we need is a little baby! We're due a week from Friday, so it should start to feel "real" soon...right??
