I wanted her room to be really crisp, simple, eclectic, modern, vintage, mid century all wrapped up into one space. Sounds a little all over the place, but I guess that's my style. I'm so so happy with how it turned out and it's probably my most favorite room in the house. I will admit that I just go in her room to sit, look around and relax.
My goal with her room was to spend no more than $100 on decor. By God's grace, I think I only went like ten dollars over that budget. It really was a blessing from the Lord. I won like 4 giveaways, was able to trade, a few sweet ladies sent me items because they are just precious like that, and gift cards bought several items! The furniture isn't included in that budget, but we got the dresser and crib for a STEAL on Craigslist.
Enough chatting, here's her room:) Details listed as we go.
Deer Taxidermy (couldn't love it more) : Watercolor by little boy : Bow on Deer is actually for little girl:) I LOVE her etsy!
Candy Kirby Designs. I'm OBSESSED with her store, and the quilt behind her was my baby quilt. The crib sheet I won on an IG giveaway from lwph sews. It's fantastic quality. She has some killer crib sheets. It was so hard to choose.The Watermelon pillow I made from left over sheets from the curtains and red food dye. HA! The basket on the floor was a gift from my friend, Lizzy. She used to live in Africa. Couldn't believe she gave me one of her african baskets. Such a sweet gift! The fox pillow was a gift to C from my friend, Allyse. It was in his nursery, but I moved it over. The quilt over the african basket I bought like 2 years ago in case I ever had a girl. The pink doll inside the basket was once mine. The rug I bought for a crazy good deal (using christmas money) for my office about a year ago but decided it worked perfectly for her room instead and tied in all the colors.
The Willow hoop was a precious gift from Alyssa. Her hoops on Etsy are adorable! The elephant and zebra were a gift from my mom from her past trip to Africa. The Raggedy Ann was mine. The two cactus and plant are from my FIL nursery. The gold frame and gold moccs were gifts from sweet friends. The Wind in the Willows book was once Josh's... crazy, right?? The black and white basket is Target, but I found it at a bargain store for $2. The other basket is also Target that I bought with a gift card, and it was on sale! I filled it with my baby blankets and blankets made for W. The books were all gifts and have special meaning to us. The shelves cost me $20 total to make. Lowe's sells the white wood boards already pre-cut and metal brackets. I simply spray painted them gold.
Phew, I think I covered all the details. It was such a joy putting her room together and staying under budget. A HUGE thank you to our friends Zach and Allyse for helping put the crib together (ikea instructions are the worst), building the shelves, hanging the plant, and installing a closet shelf system. We spent several Sunday nights before or after community group in that room. Thankful for their servant hearts.
Hard to believe two years ago I finished little boy's nursery and now I have another one finished for our little girl. Time is flying, and I'm not okay with it!
